This book "Desperate Measures" is a very good book. In the book Pete Sorenson talks about how he lost his mom and dad, and he remembers memories from when he was little. Me reading that and comprehending that makes me think how lucky I am to still have my mom and dad. I think it's great that Pete has such a great friend like Anne Gabriel. They're friendship makes me charish mine even more! I think it shows true friendship when Anne drops everything to go help Pete. I think in a way Pete needed Maddie to show him who he really truley loved. By almost marrying Maddie it made him see that he really loved Anne, not Maddie. Pete had to go through many difficult times in this book. He not only lost Maddie but he lost his uncle Leo too. Pete went to desperate measures to try to get Anne to feel the same way as he did for her, which in the end worked out for the best.
Reading this book makes me appreciate life and be thankful for what I all have. I will admit I tend to take life for granted and I think, whatever happens, happens. I now do not think that way anymore. You have to live while you're alive, is what I now think. Like Pete's feelings for Anne and how he couldn't tell her, I have the same problem. There are so many people I care for and love so much, but they don't know that and I wish so much that they did know. I just don't have the courage to tell them my honest feelings. With the help of this book I have been able to tell a lot of the people I care for, just how much I care for them. I owe it all to "Desperate Measures."

Another story of the bluebird of happiness being in your own backyard. Goofy kind of plot, where the fiance of Mr. Clueless gets caught up in the witness protection program. Mz.Perfectly-wonderful-girl-next-door works with Clueless to find out what's really going on while they track the fiance along the way.

Fern Michaels never fails to write a book that keeps you wanting to read 'just one more chapter'. Desperate Measures tells the story of Pete Sorenson,orphaned at a young age, raised in foster homes, only to find his ultra-rich uncle when he's in his teens. Now with all the money he could ever need, he shuns it and becomes a high-powered attorney, with a friend in Annie Gabriel, who helped him get through law school [and secretly loves him]. Pete meets and falls head-over-heels in love with Maddie Stern, an exotic beauty who is also a little flaky. Just days before Pete and Maddie are to get married, she disappears. Pete is determined to find her and enlists Annie's help. The rest of the story revolves around his search and the outcome. It's a story of finding oneself and being true to those most important to you.
