A thoroughly enjoyable read. As another reviewer has previuosly said, I often forget how good this author is. Now I want to go and backread her stories.
This was a great thriller. Not so much a mystery as the reader knows fairly early on who the badguy is. But, IMO, this does not detract from being engrossed in the story, as the bad guy is such an arrogant so-n-so that you just want to see how he gets what he deserves.
The romance wasn't full on, but as an avid romance reader, I can say it was just enough to keep me satisfied. The only reason, though, this doesn't get 5 stars from me, is that it did have a decided lack of steam in it. Which, I must say, is not like Sandra Brown at all. Having said that, the writing was such that I didn't miss it until the end of the story! This book still left me with a HEA and that is all good with me.
