Publisher's Summary

Over the course of authoring 37 sizzling New York Times best-sellers, Sandra Brown has amassed a huge following of admiring fans. In addition to the allure of a steamy romance, Fat Tuesday offers a rich setting and page-turning action.

A cop with nothing left to lose, Burke Basile is out to get revenge. Corrupt lawyer Pinkie Duvall has cost him his best friend’s life and his job. Kidnapping Pinkie Duvall’s trophy wife seems the perfect way to get even. There’s just one problem. He doesn’t foresee the electric attraction he’ll feel for this lonely, desperate woman from New Orleans. Sandra Brown’s flair for concocting just the right blend of passion and mystery has made her one of America’s most popular writers. Narrator Jack Garrett’s outstanding performance of Fat Tuesday keeps the adrenaline flowing from start to suspenseful finish.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "More of a Mystery than a Romance"

    Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors, I love her romances because they mix her amazing ability to create mystery with sexual relationships. Fat Tuesday is not what I would call a romance. There is one real love scene and it is at the end of the book. However, the mystery is worthy of the Sandra Brown name. It does get a little slow from the middle to the last 3/4 of the book but the ending is filled with twists and turns. I enjoyed listening to the story but, I don't think it will be one that I listen to multiple times such as her books Envy or Breath of Scandal.

    I'm a busy stay at home Mom, with an adolescent "special needs" kiddo & my husband with MS. I love gardening, cooking, reading, and hand crafts. Being able to listen to a book while I'm doing other things (including dreadful things like housekeeping) is heavenly!

    "Good story except for repetitive descriptions of"

    Good story with fun twists and characters which is almost negated by the repetitive junior high descriptions of sex and the childish terms of female anatomy. Please leave out the graphic sexual narrative OR write it for adult readers!

    "Great book - love the Unabridged version!"

    Thanks for getting the unabridged version. It is SO much better than the abridged. Mr. Garrett was the perfect narrator.

    "not so good"

    I very much enjoyed Sandra Brown's "Envy". It seems like she has written quite a few books and received many good reviews so I figured I would Give "Fat Tuesday" a try. It is way over dramatized, predictable and the language is weird. I think this book is suppose to be a steamy/thriller mystery but with sentences like "men that are ravenous don't eat neatly" it is far from it. Seriously I can not imagine anyone talking like that. To me the book was so bad that I thought it was kind of funny. I ended up listening to it in 2X the speed and I think it would be better if I could have listened to it in speed 3 or 4. I did finish the book on the other reviewers recommendation but all in all not so good and it's a definite thumbs down from me

    "Thrilling Read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fat Tuesday to be better than the print version?

    The voices of the characters help you create an image of them, better than reading alone would.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fat Tuesday?

    The most memorable was the ending, it had a twist I had not seen comming, it scared me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when to escape he had to punch his friend in the bait shop, it was very funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book mad me laugh a lot, I did not cry, but I did get very upset and nervous when I wasn't sure what was going to happen.

    "Great Book, Good Narrator"

    I enjoyed this book. I'm a big Sandra Brown fan. I've read her novels since she wrote pure romance. Jack Garrett did a good job narrating. Maybe because this is an older recorded book, sometimes it sounded like he needed a drink of water. I did appreciate the fact he did not go overboard with the voices. I've only heard a few books where the voices don't drive me nuts. This one was done well.

    I'm a registered nurse and really enjoy listening to books while I'm on the road. I'm listening to a Jodi Picoult that deals with the SS

    "Pre-Lenten"

    I've grown accustomed to her books & their sensuality. At first, I found it a bit shocking but now it does add quite a bit to the characters' personalities. This particular book is one of Sandra Brown's best. Even the narrator with his deep slow drawl fit quite well.

    "Burke was a Butt Head"

    While I usually enjoy Sandra Brown's writing, I really did not like Burke, the main male character. Burke was a police detective who kidnapped the innocent wife of a corrupt criminal attorney for revenge. He was such a butt head through out most of the book I just couldn't relate to the "sudden romance" between Burke and his victim.
