Sandra Brown is known for her strong romantic suspense novels. I have always been a fan. Low Pressure is the title of a book written by our main protagonist Bellamy Lyston Price and also happens to be the title of this book.
As with most other Sandra Brown books there are many players. We have our main couple of Dent and Bellamy, Bellamy’s family which in...more
Sandra Brown has created a fantastic set of likable characters in this newest novel. Unpretentious rich girl Bellamy has repressed childhood memories of the day her sister was murdered. She's written a novel, Low Pressure, in an effort to bring those memories to the forefront and bring the suspicion she has that the wrong man was accused and found guilty of the murder. She teams up with her...more
I, personally, prefer books that involve me a bit more. I like to have to work at guessing who the killer is and, hopefully, the ‘why’ as well. I like to identify with the heroine and I like to find the...more
Today is 20-Sep. I did a progress update, and I can't see that it appears anywhere, so I'm putting it here, too. I'm 18% done and have this to say. I got sidetracked right after I started this. I started marked my...more
The suspense plot is pretty tight but drawn out. There are a lot of details to go through. You are left wondering until the very end if the right man was arrested and convicted. There are so many people presented that could have committed the murder that I jumped from character to character thinking they had t...more
Kalau saja jatidirinya sebagai penulis novel Low Pressure yang sedang booming tidak terungkap, kalau saja novel tersebut tidak berdasarkan kisah nyata yang menjadi tragedi bagi keluarga Lyston, mungkin hidup Bellamy Lyston Price akan tetap tenang tanpa gejolak, bukannya jadi incaran wartawan tabloid yang haus berita, bukan jadi sasaran teror seseorang yang menuntut balas dendam, bukan jadi obyek kekesalan/kejengkelan mantan kekasih, dan dia juga tidak akan mengusik mantan penyidik dan mantan...more

She had written it for purely therapeutically reasons, but when it is found out that she is the author and the book is based on the murder of her sister when she was twelve years old she is thrown into the limelight. Now as she is going home a sleazy reporter implies that maybe the police convicted the wrong man and she along with her sister’s boyfriend of the time she was murdered c...more
And yet Low Pressure left me...not so breathless.
My problems started really early on when I found myself asking a really important question. Why was a column reporter so gung-ho on outting an author's pseudonym with her real identity? What was so fantastically awesome about this book she had wr...more
