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
