I found Where There's Smoke to be a little off kilter for a Sandra Brown book. I never seemed to get into the hero and heroine like I usually do in books. And there seemed to be more "violence" in this one.

I didn't really like the book - I'm afraid Sandra Brown just isn't for me. However, that does not mean that she is not for you.

The Tackett oil clan of Eden Pass in East Texas, dominated by hard-driving widow Jody, managed to weather the sex-scandal disgrace of eldest son, Clark, a congressman, five years ago, and his recent death by drowning. Now Dr. Lara Mallory, the woman involved in Clark's downfall, moves into town to take over the retiring doctor's practice, which Clark bought before his death and willed to her. Lara was widowed after her diplomat husband and young daughter were killed in the Third World country to which they'd been posted in the scandal's wake. She is willing to endure the hatred of the influential Tacketts in order to meet Clark's black-sheep brother Key, whose skill as a pilot she requires in order to return to the country where her daughter's body still lies. Virile Key and gorgeous Lara butt egos while Key's plain sister Janellen finds love with an ex-con, and a cheerleader, daughter of the town slut, seeks romance with a handsome football player.

A womanizer and an adventurer, Key Tackett lives fast and loves loosely, savoring life and all its pleasures to the full. As a pilot he flies wherever the mood takes him until, on his return to his Texas roots, he is stopped in his tracks by Dr. Lara Mallory, a woman bound up with the scandal of his family's past. Defying the seething hostility of the entire community, Lara Mallory has come to settle in Eden Pass -- Key's home town. She has come for a purpose.
Her quest is to secure a deal, with the one man who has every reason to refuse her, if not hate her. It is a deal for which she is prepared to risk everything, body and soul, and for which she will go anywhere, from the oil fields of Texas to the violent terrains of Central America.

Well, I forgot this was one author to avoid because of the explicit sexual scenes. However, if you can skip over or ignore the perverse need to include this garbage, she is an excellent writer and this story line keeps its twists and turns to the very last page. It is truly a real page-tuner.

I did not read this book. My husband bought it by mistake. I do not like this kind of book. After listening for two minutes, I knew I wouldn't enjoy it.
