The Woman Left Behind

By Linda Howard

Jumping from a high altitude required oxygen. Jumping at night required night-vision goggles. Jumping at all required either nerves of steel or the brain of a hamster. Her nerves definitely weren’t steel, so Jina figured her brain was rodentlike.

Lots of great witty banter, and smart mouth observations from our very likable and appealing heroine. Great action and hot romance. I forgot what an excellent writer Linda Howard was. I think I stopped reading her because she got away from the lighter humor/action plots and into more serious stuff. She does have a tendency to overkill some aspect of the plot. In Troublemaker it was her dog and his damn ball. In this one, it was her parachuting experience (40pp in a row: over 10% of the book). Lather, rinse, repeat, lather, rinse, repeat ad infinitum. But in this one, once it was over, it was over. Also, she made up for it by not belaboring her survival story in the desert. Again, very funny, great cast of characters, and great chemistry and tension between the romantic leads**** 4.25 stars****
