This is a very gripping book and the narrator does a very good job with each character. The plot moves right along and keeps you wondering right up to the very end. However it is a very sad book, so before you start, make sure you have a box of tissues!
Hated sex scenes & any dialogue about sex...language was beyond unrealistic...lots of contradictions.....describes character or situation & within 2 minutes whatever happens next doesn't fit with the character development. Poorly written...felt like modern day harlequin romance. BLECK!
disappointment ....found myself speaking out loud to the narrator about how unrealistic a comment or situation was.
wish I hadn't bought....
I just wish that the authors would stop using such foul language in their books. I can understand a few word now and then, but when almost every line has several off colored words, it gets very annoying. Most of the time, these words do not add anything to the content of the book. I have read books with very little foul language and the book was just as interesting and enjoyable, probably more so. I am more likely to read more books from those authors than from the ones that only have a limited vocabulary, and that vocabulary is one of disgusting words. It is a shame, as this author wrote a good plot and the people in the book were well developed. I would like to read more of her books, but will think really hard before purchasing one again.
I have read most of Sandra Brown' s books. This one was very hard to get into. I finally gave up after a few tries.
This is a chick book with really bad dialog. All beware.
As an audio book it is a complete failure. The narrator is barely understandable. She reads the dialog (poorly written dialog) fine. But the rest is terrible. Her sentences trail off so you can hear the last word. The emphasis is all over the place, trying to make it interesting I guess. Another guess is that the story is so feminine that the narrator supposes you (women) already KNOW what is about to be read so you really don't need to speak clearly, just rush through the obvious (to women).
I didn't read the print version but the audio version kept me wanting to listen to more.
The suspense and the characters.
It was a very interesting book with many twists and turns.
This book is all over the place, it feels like. It is too long for the story line. Takes forever to get to the point and feels disjointed. The trip to Montesangre just doesn't fit in with the rest of the story.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Yes, I'm a fan of Sandra Brown.
No one knows why Lara Mallory opens up her medical practice in the rowdy Texas town where Tackett Oil owns everything. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. Now the ironfisted matriarch of Tackett Oil intends to use her money and power to drive Lara out of town...especially when Lara meets Key, the hell-raising, youngest Tackett son. Before long, this determined woman doctor and brash, daring flyer find themselves hurtling on a soul-searing quest for the one secret that can destroy the Tackett empire, as rumors start flying that...Where There's Smoke.

Absolutely, I'm a huge fan. However, the books are quite expensive (and short 5-6 hours) so I only buy them when they are on sale and save my credits for other purchases.
Clear, concise & believable
No, the ends were all tied up.
I enjoyed it though some parts were a bit 'far out'. As another reviewer points out the trip to Montesangre just doesn't fit in with the rest of the story.
If you want a good mystery with some hot romance and adventure-you'll enjoy this.
NOTE: Strong language and mature themes
