    Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments. Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, best-selling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact....

    Story
    Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Stephen Lang?

    I have long been a Sandra Brown fan but this book just didn't do it for me. The protagonists were either unbelievable (her) or irritating and unlikeable (him). The story line of the female lead writing a fictionalized book based on a traumatic event in her childhood was hard to believe, but if you add in her wealth -- why would she publish it, even under a pseudonym?? Or, if she did write a fictionalized version of the book, wouldn't she have changed a few of the facts for the sake of her terminally ill father (like how her sister was strangled, for instance)? Stephen Lang's narrative voice was great but when he tried to create voices for the characters, he lost me. I simply could not finish listening to this book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    ? - it will be a while before I order another SB book, though.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Lang’s performances?

    NO. Annoying female voice and the male lead sounded nothing like a hotshot pilot in his late 30s.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment.
