Low Pressure | [Sandra Brown]

Low Pressure

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....

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....

    "Excellent!"

    After listening to, and really enjoying, "Envy" by Sandra Brown, I thought I would try this book. I reserve five stars for those books that I would definitely listen to again. This is one of those books. Both the story and the narrator kept me listening to the point where I hated to stop. I did not find the outcome to be predictable. I will definitely be looking for more of this author's work.

    "Kept us awake"

    My husband and I had to drive from Florida to New Jersey a few weeks ago, so I downloaded Low Pressure to listen to in the car. I wanted a story we both would be interested in, so I looked for a mystery. We listened to most of it on the way up and then finished it on the way back home. We stopped it and discussed the facts from time to time and made our predictions. It kept us awake and interested as we drove along I95 for hours and it was fun listening to it together!! I would read more of her books.

    "Sandra Brown - A Truly Awesome Talent"

    Low Pressure by Sandra Brown is another example of her awesome talent. Wow. I just marvel at her ability to set scenes and develop characters, and I love her use of the English language.
    Stephen Lang is an amazing narrator. I had no trouble at all differentiating his voices between characters.
    Another credit worthy novel…Enjoy!

    "Almost good"

    This book reads like earlier Brown , the only thing that brings it into the present is the mention of an IPad. it has the twists that she does so well, but predictable. Marginally worth your time cash credit.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Kept me going until the end"

    I had to work through the narration due to the lack of difference of character voices. The story was great and I was surprised by the final details

    "Swiss Cheese Model of error accumulation"

    The example of the Swiss Cheese Model for error analysis alone was worth the price of this audio. I had never heard of this model. It stuck in my mind but I forgot to note which audio it was in and spent weeks checking books I had listened to before I heard it again in "Low Pressure." The example of the Swiss cheese model intrigued me so much I researched it afterward. I found it useful in understanding what can go wrong between key events in the Critical Path method for analyzing project activities. I missed the humour of "Lethal," but I enjoyed the romance and all the twists and turns in the plot.

    "Good Story but sometimes annoying"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes I would recommend it. The story was good and you get a few ideas of the "who dunnit" but you don't have any solid evidence until the end. I found myself going back and forth between 3 characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The writing at some points got kind of cheesy and I thought Dent was overly persistent and cannot imagine many if any guys being that persistent.

    An example of cheesy:
    Dent: That looks good on you.
    Bellamy: Your shirt?
    Dent: No debauchery.

    "Same ole same ole"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Have not purchased a Sandra Brown book in a long time and couldn't remember why I quit. Then, I purchased Low Pressue and I was quickly reminded. Boy meets girl. Girl in trouble. Boy fixes problem. Boy and Girl fall in love. Happily ever after isn't always the way life goes. I was diappointed with the book. Time for something new.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a Sandra Brown book


    What didn’t you like about Stephen Lang’s performance?

    Really hard to listen to. He tries hard to change the tone from one character to the next, but it is not working for me. Hard to tell one from the other.


    Do you think Low Pressure needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no. enough said

    "Great twists and turns"
    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.


    What about Stephen Lang’s performance did you like?

    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.
