Heartbreaker - Linda Howard Michelle is TSTL. Her husband almost beats her to death and she knows he is batshit insane. So how does she not know who the phone calls and murder attempts are coming from? And then she uses herself as bait to draw out the psycho when she just found out she's pregnant, so she can protect John. What the fuck sense does that make? None. No sense. I admire Michelle for trying to run the ranch and make it on her own merits. And I admire her for surviving all she did. But she has some dangerously stupid moments.
