"An adorable heroine makes this work a winner"
Hillsboro, Alabama is a small sleepy town with a population
of nine thousand people. It is a place where everybody
knows their neighbors and doors are always unlocked. Daisy
Minor has lived there all her life and is viewed by the
town as a straight-laced spinster, who dresses down and
acts prissy. Daisy is aware of the townsfolk's opinion of
her, but on her thirty-fourth birthday, she decides she
wants a life.
She moves out of the house she shares with her mother and
her aunt, gets a complete make over and hits the night club
scene. Even before Daisy transformed herself into a good-
looking woman, she caught the attention of Jack Russo, the
town's police chief. He finds the new Daisy adorable and
goes all out in his pursuit of her. When she witnesses a
murder and Jack fears the murderer will come after her, he
puts a wall of protection around her and her family. When
they can catch the killer, Jack intends to take his
relationship with Daisy to the next level.
OPEN SEASON is a humorous tale of a woman who wants a
family of her own and does what's needed to gain one. The
situations she finds herself in are so hilarious readers
will burst out laughing at odd moments. The suspense adds
depth to the relationship between the lead characters yet
demonstrates that not every book Linda Howard writes has to
be intense to be quite good. OPEN SEASON can be summed up
in one word: adorable.
