Book Watch: Don't Look Down

Don’t Look Down
by Jennifer Crusie, Bob Mayer
Format: Hardcover, 384 pages
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Pub Date: April 4, 2006
ISBN: 0312348126

Two national bestselling authors, Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer, team up for a hilarious, whirlwind adventure: She’s the straight-talker, he’s the straight-shooter, and Don’t Look Down is a straight-up winner.

Don’t Look Down is a marriage of romance and action story, written by two experts in the genres. Jenny Crusie writes Lucy Armstrong, a film director with family problems—why is her sister so depressed, her niece so unhappy, and her ex-husband so intent on getting her back—and career problems—why is the star so determined to do his own stunts, the ingenue so determined to seduce the stunt double, and that Green Beret stunt double so damn attractive? Bob Mayer writers J. T. Wilder, a Green Beret who has his own troubles including the goofball actor he’s doubling for, the stunt coordinator who’s gunning for him (literally), and the director who looks like Wonder Woman and keeps distracting him from his mission. And that’s before the CIA, the Russian mob, and the one-eyed alligator show up.

A book about real men, real women, and real gators, Don’t Look Down is the perfect blend of he said/she said, excitement and romance, Mayer and Crusie.

I'm dying to read this book. JC is wonderful.

I think I will wait until some amazon reviews come up (NOT Harriet Klausner's), to see if I should order new or used.
