I've always enjoyed Sandra Brown's books, even after she switched from writing romance to writing romantic suspense.
This book had me pulled in from the beginning and kept my attention. I'm not good at writing reviews and don't want to risk any spoilers, so I'll keep this review generic. If you are like me and skim ahead in a book to see what's going to happen, I strongly recommend that you don't do that for this book. The Bookkeeper, the villain in this story, has law enforcement officials in their pocket. I actually figured out who the Bookkeeper was without reading ahead and the suspense made the book that much more enjoyable.
If you're looking for a romance, this book is not for you. This book is a gritty, suspense filled mystery that I highly recommend. I hope to see the hero and heroine as secondary characters in a sequel sometime.

This is just another typical story, bad guy holds woman and daughter hostage while he searches their house then they take off together getting away from the 'real' bad guys and it just goes on and on and it gets a little tedious about the middle when it just seems to go no where, it isn't a bad read but it is too long and a lot of it can be skipped or skimmed and get on with the main story

I am a HUGE fan of Sandra Brown......but was rather disappointed in this book! Not up to what I have come to expect from her. Really had to force my way thru it.

Honor Gillette and her four-year-old daughter, Emily, are taken hostage by Lee Coburn, a man accused of murdering seven men the previous night. Coburn promises Honor that he won't hurt her or her daughter if she helps him find the information her late husband possessed. Honor knows nothing about any information or evidence, but will do anything to keep her daughter safe.

This book drew me in from the first chapter. I love "hostage" and "on the run" themes. There are a lot of twists and turns in the plot, and I was certainly surprised by the identity of the villain. My only drawback and the reason I couldn't give this book 5 Stars was the ending. Why couldn't we have just another page or two to complete the romance? My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Not up to Sandra Brown's usual standards. I was disappointed and almost gave up on it a couple of times.

I was disappointed in this Sandra Brown novel. The storyline was interesting but seemed to drag on forever. The 'bookkeeper' turned out to be a person so out of character and made the ending lame and anti-climatic. The main male in the tale would do better in a spy espionage setting rather than a small town domestic situation. Not the best Sandra Brown compared to previous novels.
