I was at a used book store over the summer and I stumbled across the Linda Howard section. There was a ton of books and I eventually read the back of Mr. Perfect. It sounded good and reminded me of the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson. The best part – it was only $1!
It took me by surprise how much romance and graphic intimacy scenes are in this novel. I wasn’t expecting it and I’m not much of a romance fan, so I could of done without all of the extra parts.
Behind all of those scenes, there is a pretty good mystery! Even though I thought I knew where the book was heading, I was surprised by the end. I also enjoyed the characters and their friendship with one another. It was realistic and refreshing.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. A bit too much romance for me, but overall an enjoyable read.
