Publisher's Summary

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 when an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal.

Moreover, Bellamy becomes the target of an unnamed assailant who either wants the truth about Susan's murder to remain unknown or, even more threatening, is determined to get vengeance for a man wrongfully accused and punished.

In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Dent Carter, Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend - and an original suspect in the murder case. Dent, with this and other stains on his past, is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's sealed memory to do it. But her safeguarded recollections - once unlocked - pose dangers that neither could foresee and put both their lives in peril.

As Bellamy delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Susan's slaying, she discovers disturbing elements of the crime which call into question the people she holds most dear. Haunted by partial memories, conflicted over her feelings for Dent, but determined to learn the truth, she won't stop until she reveals Susan's killer.

That is, unless Susan's killer strikes her first....

    I love to listen and read books. I don't waste a minute...I listen when I am driving, cleaning, getting my nails done, etc. Fiction books are my favorites.... mysteries.

    "No pressure here"

    I loved it. The story was suspenseful and engaging. Typical Sandra Brown. Highly recommend this one. I called my daughter as soon as I finished it to give her my recommendation.

    "Great storyline!"
    Where does Low Pressure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Low Pressure is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to this year.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Lots of action and plot twists. It had the perfect combination of switchbacks from one characters story to another always leaving you waiting to get back. And what a surprise at the end.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Lang’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Chill Factor and enjoyed it - but Low Pressure is my favorite thus far. Both stories do a great job of character development which I believe is critical to any story. You learn about the characters and try to think what they will do next - it keeps you coming back.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    History haunts the town after a terrible storm results in murder.


    Any additional comments?

    I particularly enjoyed Stephen Lang's narration, accents and character shifts in both Low Pressure and Chill Factor.

    If you could sum up Low Pressure in three words, what would they be?

    Loved the plot


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Low Pressure?

    Finding out what she blocked out.

    Did a decent female voice.


    Any additional comments?

    The book will catch your attention from the very beginning. Sandra did a great job with different twists and turns through out the book.

    "Hadn't Listened to a Sandra Brown Story in A While"

    I hadn't listened to a Sandra Brown book in a while. It was an okay book. It had all of the stuff that we ROMANCE READERS love, I wasn't crazy about Stephen Lang being the narrator.,

    He sounded a bit old for the book. The male voice were alright, but the female voice could have been better.

    I like Victor Slezak as the narrator for her books, so I guess that hearing a different narrator just didn't do for me.

    "You may have to listen two times"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sandra Brown always has a twist, but you must watch for it to get the full enjoyment

    Dent our hero, what sass!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    "Not bad!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Low Pressure to be better than the print version?

    This book was good enough. Many of the parts were predictable and a little cliche. I never felt the urge that I had to listen to it, but never felt like I had to force myself to finish it either.

    Story
    "Main character sounded like a tranny"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I loved the story but the narrator did not do a good female voice. It kinda ruined it for me.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, however, the main male character made me uncomfortable with his sexual aggression, even when being told no.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator did not do a good female voice so the main character sounded like a male pretending to be a female.


    Could you see Low Pressure being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Do a re-record with a female narrator.

    "I liked it-even if a bit unbelievable IT'S FICTION"
    What did you love best about Low Pressure?

    I enjoyed Dent...he was broody, cranky and lovable.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sandra Brown before, how does this one compare?

    I have read about 10 Sandra Brown books and plan on reading a lot more - this makes my top 5.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Stephen Lang?

    Probably, although I'd prefer a different narrator


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Other reviewers complain about why a wealthy woman would write about a painful past under a pseudonym and be upset when she is discovered, blah, blah, blah - while some aspects are a bit of a reach IT IS FICTION and I felt it was a good book overall. It held my interest and there were a lot of twists.
