This was my first read of Stewart's. This book was okay for me. I did enjoy the characters and the main line of the plot very much. The characters were very well developed, almost to a point of too developed. This book is based on a lot of feelings and pasts of the characters and not so much on actions by the characters. I found there was a lot of "dead air" so to speak in the writing. It seemed just too drawn out at times, mainly in the very beginning of the book. The writing, however, as far a...more

An excellent read.It has a very unexpected twist in the plot and of course, a happy ending.
I really enjoyed it.

Leah McDevitt loves traveling and writing her articles for the magazine she and her cousin Catherine co-own. Yet despite her dedication to her career, Leah still misses her sister Melissa who went missing 7 years earlier. When contacted by convicted serial killer Raymond Lambert with the taunt that he knows where Melissa's body, Leah is more than willing to pay him the long-standing reward for information. Before Lambert can turn over all his information, he himself is killed sending Leah on her...more
This is my first story from Mariah Stewart and it was a smooth and easy read. I knew who the killer was by the middle of the book but that didn't deter me from reading the rest of it. Leah helped to heal Ethan's pain and look beyond the past while Ethan was the strength and stability that Leah needed. And still it was a nice love story.

I was looking forward to a little more from FBI agents Genna Snow and John Mancini....maybe another book??? I am looking forward to more from this author.

Great story! It started off a bit slow, but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. Steward does a wonderful job of building suspenseful tension with a twist at the end.
A great book. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Leah. There was one surprise I didn't see coming. Definitely a "must read".
This was the first book I had read by Mariah Stewart. I was hooked and have read everything in paperback since that time!

Brown-Eyed girl by Mariah Stewart, which I really enjoyed. It has suspense, serial killers, and romance.
I knew who the bad guy was long before it was over but it was a nice journey there.
What a fantastic leap from mundane women's fiction to an out and out thriller!
Good, quick read book. Easy to understand and a good ending.
Totally love this book and I have reread it three time
