Seeing Red

Of the many books Sandra Brown has written, over thirty of them are romantic suspense novels. Seeing Red will, by my count, be her thirty-second such story. Having read roughly two-thirds of those books I can tell you that this a classic Brown tale, full of her trademark action mixed with romance mi ...

Mean Streak

It's been a few years since I've curled up with a book by Sandra Brown. A recent sinus infection had me in need of something fast-paced and thrilling, and Mean Streak, her latest romantic suspense novel, seemed like just the thing to listen to. It definitely kept me from thinking about how bad I was ...

Envy

Narrated by Victor Slezak Envy is part of my Unofficial 2010 Listening Challenge. I haven’t been a fan of romantic suspense in the past and Envy changed that – completely. Sandra Brown has to be one of the more refined voices for sophisticated suspense combined with romance. I wasn ...

Smash Cut

Sandra Brown knows what she’s doing, all right. Despite an implausible – very implausible - key plot point, she had me with this one. She really had me. Wealthy Atlanta businessman Paul Wheeler is shot to death by a masked gunman in a hotel elevator with Julie Rutledge, his mu ...

Another Dawn

There’s something very sad about D reads. They’re sandwiched between the irredeemable Fs and mediocre-but-somewhat-redeemable Cs. But the Ds have almost nothing to recommend, except that glimmer or two that could have been something. Another Dawn is the sequel to Sunset Embra ...
