Review: Head to Head by Linda Ladd

  • Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
  • Publisher: Pinnacle (March 1, 2006)

  • ISBN-10: 0786017171
  • ISBN-13: 978-0786017171

  • Claire is a cop who has left LA to live in a quiet Ozark small town.  When there is a horrifying ritualistic murder of a soap opera star at a local resort, she has no idea how bizarre it will get. 
    I really enjoyed the suspense in this book and the dynamics of the characters.  Not to mention the back story on Claire.

    Now I do have to say that the suspect/love interest psychiatrist, Nicholas Black, was a little TOO perfect for me (Billionaire, gorgeous, thoughtful, generous...LOL) 

    I accidently took a bit of the pleasure out though, because when flipping to the back to see how many pages I had left at one point, I saw a chapter heading that gave it all away for me.  So of course, I picked up on clues I might not otherwise have done and went from a whodunit to a why?  But that's okay, it still engrossed me and satisfied me. 

    Definitely want to read more in this series.
