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.

An abridged version of this would be terrific. I found myself thinking "get on with it" or "who cares" so often in this book that it really dulled the enjoyment of it.
at the top. I was hooked from the beginning
I really can't compare it to anything. It's a great book, the story gets you from the beginning and keep you interested. The ending is something you don't see coming ang doesn't let you down.
This is the first I've heard of his. He nailed every accent.
I hated myself for enjoying this but if you want a lightweight read that does not require a lot of your attention while you shop or clean on the weekends, then this book is for you. The characters are cut-out but the plot moves rapidly if not somewhat improbably. And you learn a little about life in the Louisiana swamps.
Another Great, Sandra.
I love Brown's combination of suspense, romance, and happy endings.
Another great story from N'Oleans by Sandra Brown!
I love Sandra Brown. The book gives us romance and mystery with memorable characters.
Jack Garrett's narration was wonderful.
Better than average, but not my favourite
Can't spoil the ending......
I found the starting point for the relationship between Burke and Remi too hard to swallow, whilst I was waiting for them to get together, I kept thinking how totally unrealistic it was.
I have not read Sandra Brown's books for awhile and decided to listen to this one because it was on sale. I was not disappointed.
I forgot how interesting she writes.
This audiobook had some twists and turns especially at the end which I enjoyed very much. I did not want to turn my player off, the story was that intriguing.
Will definitely listen to more of her books.
Good author, good narrator.
It was not a waste of a credit, but it was predictable and a bit overdone. There was a serious case of Stockholm syndrome that made the book unbelievable for me. I finished the book without fast forwarding, but I'm not likely to re-listen.
The narrator's ability to distinguish between characters was solid. I often dislike male narrators' interpretations of women's voices, but I didn't have that problem in this case. My luke-warm feelings about the book have nothing to do with the narration.
I haven't read the print version
I just happen to really like Sandra Brown's books. Some better than others.
I like to savor a book, and can seldom read in one sitting.
