I've been very disappointed with Julie Garwood's contemporary romance/thrillers. With the change in time, it seems she's lost the complexity of story and character development. Honestly, this book is written simply, without complex sentences, and it drove me crazy. Didn't finish it, but my boyfriend struggled through and told me how it ended, which didn't surprise me.
Fast-paced romantic suspense with a good plot and engaging characters. I really enjoyed this one...
Though I am a fan of Julie Garwood's historial romances I was not thrilled with her turn to the contemporary genre. I decided to give the books a chance via audio...and I am really glad I did.
The heroine, Kate is a strong woman with good values...the realization that someone is trying to kill her for an unknown reason...added with the sexual tension with her best friend's brother (a detective recovering from a work-related injury)...keeps the listener engaged in the story. Twist and turns in the plot with more and more suspects added as the story unfolds...a surprise end to the suspense plus a happy ending...ahhh, romances!
I couldn't stop listening...spent the day transporting the CDs from my player downstairs to my computer upstairs to my car...just wanting to see...who the perp turned out to be!!
this is a busy book. a lot of charactors and they move very fast, kate has always been able to turn her challenges into triumphs, but fate seems to be turning against her but in th end all comes out ok. a very light bhook.
