Stephen King book and author. He says: "Okay, Sandra Brown is not Eudora Welty, but if you want romantic suspense that has teeth, "big ones", she's your gal.

Sandra Brown Sandra Brown

Linda Boyd (boydlinda95gmailcom) | 598 comments I have a good friend who simply loves Sandra Brown - I have only read 1 book by her - it was a very short book and just okay for me - but I will try her out again. Have you read her Almeta? Any suggestions???

I have not read any Sandra Brown, although there is no reason why not. She writes in the genre that I like and has received numerous awards.

I have one book in my house written by her and given to me from a now unremembered source; The Crush.

Stephen King recommended Hello, Darkness. He says: "Okay, Sandra Brown is not Eudora Welty, but if you want romantic suspense that has teeth — big ones — she's your gal. This one features a Beautiful Disc Jockey With a Secret in Her Past who starts getting calls from a psycho named ''Valentino'' on her late-night show (tunes for lovers — forget the playlist unless you're deep into Barry White). A great deal of violence and steamy, graphic sex ensues. And ensues. And ensues. The finale is a shocker worthy of Agatha Christie...although I don't think there was ever an Internet sex club in any of Dame Agatha's books."

Want to choose one and do a "buddy read"?

Angie I really enjoy Sandra Brown. Hello, Darkness would be a good one to start out with for people who haven't read her.

Linda Boyd (boydlinda95gmailcom) | 598 comments I would love to - Hello, Darkness sounds intriguing

Linda Boyd (boydlinda95gmailcom) | 598 comments sounds good, I did the same thing as well today.

Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) Wow, seeing Sandra Brown as an SK recommended author kinda surprised me. I've read a couple by her, a couple of her older more romance-y ones, and Standoff, which I liked pretty well. When I was in school I had a friend who loved her books, but I never really tried to get into reading them too much.

Surprised me too. So much so, that I debated with myself about placing her in the "favorite author" thread. Still, he said some pretty nice things about her.
