Not one of her best. I've enjoyed Sandra Brown's suspense books in the past, but this one fell short. It started off strong, and then fizzled out. I ended up skimming parts of it and had to practically make myself finish it. It could've been a hundred pages shorter and still told the story. I'm glad I checked it out at the library and didn't waste a credit here. I wouldn't recommend it.
Really loved the characters in this book. They just seemed "real to me". Lots of turns, but always turn out to be a happy ending when I turn the last page. Sandra brown's books always leave me happy that I read the story.
This was a great read from start to finish! The characters were totally believeable, and the plot took lots of twists and turns. It kept me guessing right up until the very end. One of my favorites so far by Sandra Brown.
I used to love to read Sandra Brown. This book showed me why I no longer care for her writings. I was so turned off by the repeated phrase with the F*** in it that I put the book down and gave it away asap. Now I am not a child or a prude but I pick up a book to be entertained not for the shock value--which I think was used in this book.
