LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER
FBI agent John Miller was on the trail of a notorious female serial killer, and he couldn’t blow his cover to anyone. Not even the beguiling Mariah Carver, who had unwittingly entan...more
My Rating: 4 stars
Every now and then I do a search through Amazon to see what my go-to authors have coming up in the future. I was surprised to come across Love With The Proper Stranger, a re-release from 1997.
From the opening line, She laced his coffee with opium, I was hooked. I mean, how can you not want to find out what happens after that, right? Right ...more
Contains: Love With a Proper Stranger; and Letters to Kelly
Love With a Proper Stranger is the story of FBI Agent John Miller falling in love with Mariah Carver while undercover tracking a female serial killer called the Black Widow. John is known as "The Robot" by his colleagues because of his inability to show emotion and his nonstop work ethic. In reality, he is trying to get through each day while dealing with the memory of his former best friend/partner being ...more
Not quite the Brockmann pen of the popular Troubleshooter series, but hallmarks of what will become her definitive style are evident in this two novella reprint of her earlier work. That writing style of two narrations, the non-linear flashbacks, the strong solid males who clearly follow where the lines are drawn and even outlines of what later becomes characters in the Troubleshooter series are evident. If any of that is your cup of tea, you won’t go wrong with this/these r ...more
Love with the Proper Stranger
Mariah Robinson (not her real name) has just worked for two long years to pull her father's company back from the brink of bankruptcy. Now, she just wants a life. She's on a small island, working on her photography skills, and enjoying time with her new ...more
Love With the Proper Stranger, the first one, just didn't work for me. I didn't care for John and had a hard time believing Marie/Mariah would walk away from her life. After 30 pages I gave this one up, it just wasn't for me.
Letters to Kelly, on the other hand, was great. I loved T or Jax fell in love with Kelly when she was young, that he knew it was inappropriate and he tried to hold back. His jumping to take her to her prom wa ...more
A combo paperback with two of Brockmann's early stories. 'Proper Stranger' was okay, I enjoyed it but I don't think it's one of her best. I never believe it when one of the main characters, usually the man, is so besotted that he just can't function in his daily life. Here you have an FBI agent that keeps making mistake after mistake, can't tear himself away from his fascinating new love interest, etc. A litt ...more
At first it was promising but the more the story goes and the more
I was losing interest.
Letters to Kelly: 5 star
I totally get why this is the favorite story of Suzanne Brockmann's mother. This is probably my favorite too. Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the flashback and especially loved the "conversation" between Jax and his main character.
Buat yang Kelly, sebenarnya sih bagus surat-suratnya, tapi ngebayangin orang dewasa (yah ga dewasa banget sih yak) naksir abg, kok rasanya idiih.. gak banget hahahaha
lebih suka yang kedua, tapiii sayang banget tokoh jahatnya ga banyak
diceritain, padahal POV-nya si pembunuh bagus
ya gitu deh, namanya juga buku romen, kalo fokus ke pembunuhnya bukan romen lagi dong ya namanya.. :p
