Slow Burn | [Julie Garwood]

Slow Burn

A series of negative events (an explosion, the possible dissolution of her business, a threatening visit from her sister's ex-boyfriend) rocks Kate McKenna's successful life in Charleston. When her best friend Jordan is sent to the hospital and scheduled for surgery, Kate heads up to Boston and promptly has a one-night stand with Jordan's brother Dylan. He continually checks up on Kate at Jordan's insistence, and soon discovers how many people want Kate McKenna dead.

Publisher's Summary

Living a successful life in Charleston, South Carolina, Kate MacKenna has always been able to turn her challenges into triumphs. But now the fates seem to be lining up against her in a lethal fashion.

While attending a reception at a friend's estate for a controversial artist, Kate is nearly killed by an explosion. Once home, Kate is hit with the news that the prosperous fragrance company she has nurtured from the ground up is in jeopardy: It turns out that her late mother used the business as collateral for a huge loan, and full payment is due in three weeks. Kate's still reeling from this devastating news when her younger sister's volatile ex-boyfriend shows up and threatens her.

Then Kate receives a call from her best friend, Jordan Buchanan, who is hospitalized and scheduled for surgery in Boston. Though stretched to the limit, Kate immediately rushes to her side. Once she knows that Jordan is going to be fine, Kate abandons her calm façade and allows herself a major meltdown, doing something that is totally uncharacteristic: She has a one-night stand with Jordan's brother Dylan.

Coming to her senses, Kate returns home determined to get back on track and save her business. But the mishaps keep coming.

At Jordan's insistence, Dylan checks up on Kate. He's convinced that she's merely having a spell of bad luck - until he discovers how many people want Kate MacKenna dead.

    "Enjoyed It, but why "Slow Burn" as a Title"

    I enjoy Romantic Suspense books with bite to them--this one was good--could have been more bite though. Narrators can make or break book. I enjoyed the narrator also, however she doesn't do "southern" very well (the reason she got a 3). I know I have listened to her before and I know she has done a better job.

    I started listening to the sample story about Jordan--she seems to be more herself in this one--she will probably rate much better, at least in my opinion.

    "Good Read"

    This is a typical Julie Garwood book. One is immediately engaged into both the plot and characters. Love Julie Garwood.

    "Too much romance novel"

    I don't mind a little romance with my mysteries, but this was the opposite mix. A prologue takes away any reason for suspense in the first half of the book (we know something the heroine doesn't that explains what's going on). When two handsome, eligible men are introduced in the first few chps, you just know one of of them has to be a bad guy. Then there's the other set of suspects... and the only one who isn't made out to be a villain is, you guessed it, behind it all. I read a later book in this series and thought it was a much better mystery, so if you're looking for suspense with a touch of romance, try newer novels from this author.

    "Love Joyce Bean's performance ..."
    Would you listen to Slow Burn again? Why?

    Yes, great story and narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katie


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Excellent - she did not attempt a bad Boston accent as was the case in prior books in this series with other narrators. Not all people from the Boston area speak with an accent that is over exaggerated.


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

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the entire series (even with the very bad Boston accents of the first few audio books.
