Wow........I had a hard time getting past the growing list of characters in this book...about 60 pages or so......then, i kept changing my mind until the last 8 or 10 pages of the book. Rarely do you see an author drag all the characters suspicions all the way to the final chapter like Sandra Brown did on this one....One of her best....earl h., meldrim, ga.
From the back cover.

A medical miracle gave TV personality Cat Delaney more than a new heart. It gave her a second chance at life. After leaving Hollywood to host a San Antonio TV show spotlighting children with special needs, Cat fights to gain respect as a newscaster. She meets Alex Pierce, an ex-cop turned crime writer, who regards her as a woman, not as a heart patient. When fatal "accidents" begin killing the other heart recipients, Alex may--or may not--be her most important ally. With her new world turning sinister and a mysterious stalker shadowing her every move, Cat is caught in a dark maze of betrayal and secrets..and perhaps sees too late the mask hiding a killer's face.

What an interesting concept for a novel: heart transplants! This was a very good book. It gave you a list of suspects in the beginning but didn't reveal the right one until the very end. Kept your interest. Would recommend to readers that like a little different theme to murder!

Another Sandra Brown suspense novel about a woman who gets a new chance at life through a heart transplant, only to have other recipients start turning up dead from "fatal accidents". Great read.

This is a great suspense book with some very hot love scenes. The book is based on an interesting topic of organ transplant. What a great surprise ending.

This book kept me interested from the first page on. Our main character is Cat Delaney, lucky receiver of a donor heart, but not so lucky when she finds out that donors who received hearts on that day are dieing of fatal "accidents" on the anniversary of their surgery. Sandra Brown does a super job of keeping you guessing, right until the very end. She also delves into the subject of whether donor recipients receive more than just an organ. Do they sometimes receive characteristics of their donor as well? When Cat Delaney first receives her heart, she has, literally, a "change of heart" and goes from being a famous TV news personality to running a program for adoptive children. Cat doesn't know her donor's identity, and doesn't want to, until it is much too late. You will enjoy every page and will want to keep reading into the night. Cat Delaney is not even a likeable personality, yet Sandra Brown pulls this story together as easy as pulling a drawstring. This is the first time I have read this author, and I intend to read her more often. Highly recommended.
