** spoiler alert ** Re-read December 2010

I'm a huge Linda Howard fan, even when her books are a little dated like this one..

I say it's dated because there's a reference to caller-id and buying a cell phone -- these days who doesn't already have those things, really?

Other than that, not so much.

What worked for me:
*Oooh mama the chemistry between the hero and heroine was SCORCHIN! *fans self*
*Our heroine's love of cars. Forget the perfect man -- she had the Perfect Car *sigh* I want a viper.
*The humor -- just enough to keep things from getting super heavy, and I could identify with the group of four friends -- reminds me of me and my friends :)
*Even though this is a re-read, and therefore I remembered who the killer was, I still remember my shock at the big reveal the first time I read it -- SO DID NOT EXPECT THAT :D

What didn't work for me:
*I didn't like that the people who died seemed to be the most "expendable" of the group -- the single girls or the ones who didn't really have any close ties with someone outside of the group. That just seemed too convenient to me from a reader standpoint, because while the other members of the group grieved, those outside of the group weren't all that affected
*The romance was a little TOO whirlwind for me. Now now, before you start shaking your head at my prudish ways, that's not the part I'm talking about -- in a contemporary it's almost a given that folks'll just hop into bed right after meeting each other -- no, what I'm referring to is the whole marriage thing. After a week? Really? I mean, hot sex is great but.. but.. REALLY?!

Overall, I'm sticking with my original score - 5 Stars :)
