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....

    "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.

    "Lots of twists"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Low Pressure to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy the audio so I can get wrapped into the book yet do other things.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that not a single person seemed to be innocent.

    "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.

    "Low pressure if full of action!"

    I really enjoyed this book. Another success for SB readers. Bellamy writes a book 18 years after her older sister is killed. There are questions as to whether the right man was sent to jail. I loved the characters and the narration.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Low Pressure ... low performance"
    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.

    "Very good book...would listen again!"
    What made the experience of listening to Low Pressure the most enjoyable?

    The story had you guessing at every turn!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Listening to two stories in one.


    What does Stephen Lang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His character portrayals were excellent! I was able to picture each one very clearly!


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

    Thrilling

    Story
    "I wish this was a movie"
    If you could sum up Low Pressure in three words, what would they be?

    Utterly amazing story


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

    It did get slow but only to build backstory. Amazing overall


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When one of the characters is tricked by an old airplane mechanic


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

    Defiantly would have tried


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see this on the screen and has just the right amount of action suspense and romance.

    "What a great read - but a tough one"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The toughest moment was the lead character's time with her daughter - very difficult to listen to - I had to stop multiple times.
