This was good - the characters draw you in.
Another great Mariah Stewart book. Rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors.
Really enjoyed this book. Now I am reading Voices Carry because it has some of the people from Brown-Eyed Girl in it.
Loved this book. Could not put it down.
I love Romantic Suspense. I particularly love it when an author whose work I've enjoyed moves to romantic suspense without sacrificing the romantic element of the story. Mariah Stewart has done this with BROWN EYED GIRL. Gripping suspense, but passionate romance together in a book readers won't be able to put down once they start.
Leah McDevitt is a features editor for a well-known magazine whose younger sister has been missing for several years. When a man who is on death row says he might have some information regarding her, Leah is anxious to meet with him. She does so, but the meeting does not lead to any concrete information instead the convicted killer wants money. Leah agrees to send him half now, half after he gives her more info. But, before he is able to reveal what he knows, he is killed by another prison inmate.
Leah is crushed. Just when she thought she might have some peace of mind she is crushed again. She seeks the help of the only other person she knows might be able to give her assistance, Ethan Sanger, the author of a book on the killer Leah talked to in prison. But Ethan is reluctant to share this information because in doing so, he will have to relive memories he's spent years trying to forget.
Nail biting suspense ensues when Leah realizes her own life is in danger. This is a highly recommended read.
This book will be enjoyed by readers of mystery and romance novels alike.
a must for fans of Mariah Stewart
Pretty good book, although sometimes the suspense gets dragged down by lengthy descriptions of setting, especially toward the end. Interesting plot.
A serial killer tells a magazine writer that he can tell her where her murdered sister is buried. They strike a deal but before he can tell her he is murdered. Her last hope is to talk to the writer who wrote the killers biography. Very good story
Great book!!!! She is a great writer and love all she writes
Liked the Book, good read
I just finished this book today, and I really liked it!
The characters are believable and the description of the settings is great. Of all of her books that I've read so far - and I've read probably 8 - I think this one is the best by far!
