Love with the Proper Stranger: FBI agent John Miller was on the trail of a notorious female serial killer, and he couldn’t blow his cover to anyone. Not even the beguiling Mariah Carver, who had unwittingly entangled herself in a web of deadly deceit. The daring lawman couldn’t deny his feelings for Mariah, but he was poised to wed another woman: the ruthless Black Widow, who marries - then murders - her victims….
Letters to Kelly: For years, a trumped-up charge - and a Central American prison cell - kept Jax Winchester from claiming the girl he loved. Now he was a free man. Or was he? He was still a prisoner, in a jail of his own making. The way out this time? Keep that promise he’d made to Kelly O’Brien all those years ago - and claim her for his own.…

Love books. I love to read and love to listen.
I love Suzanne Brockmann.. Her stories don't get old.
Nora Roberts and some of her light romances
Yes they are amazing.
I have no Idea
Retired tech writer/editor. Mensa. Pgh Steelers/ Penguins fan. Lib Dem/feminist. Grew up reading lit--M.A. English--now read mys/thrillers.
Well, gee, I've read so many I hate to give it a rank. Unstoppable would be in the top 100 I think. I've read MANY hundreds(!) Not so Letters to Kelly.
Other Suzanne Brockmann books. I've liked most of what I've read. I've read A LOT. ALL of Troubleshooters (Seal Team 16). A goodly number of the OTHER seal team with Cowboy & Blue & Crash. And some other stand-alones. Have bought quite a few that are still in my queue to read, too.
"What DO Melanie Ewbank and Patrick Lawlor bring"--GRAMMAR POLICE HERE!!!I LOVE the alternate female/male narration. I think BOTH performers can do both male & famale dialog. I have a friend who HATED the alternate narration in Brockmann's books. Different strokes....
John Miller is on the trail of a black widow serial killer. He doesn't sleep anymore - he's had problems ever since his partner was killed in a warehouse while John was outside & the backup was impossibly delayed. When - through the intervention of Mariah Carver - John sleeps again and starts to feel human emotions again, it's very moving, but he still tries to squash all this & be a robot. Letters to Kelly was problematic for me. Jax is rich, gorgeous, and in college when he first meets Kelly, his roommate's little sister, and she's - what?--14. He falls in love with her and when it's time for her prom, he takes her when her other date can't, but then is banished by her brother when he catches them almost in flagrante delicti on the beach. Jax leaves the country, becomes a political prisoner, and only the letters to Kelly he writes first in his head and then on any paper he can get keep him sane. When he's finally released, she's married to someone else. (WHY?!!! What an idiot!) Now she's divorced and he pursues her and she does not want to be pursued because she's so hurt he left after the prom. The brother really ruined both their lives for years. Why would the idiot invite Jax to his wedding and NOT tell him Kelly is married?! The girl was turning 18 in a few days when the brother found them on the beach. Why did Jax have to knuckle under to the brother's demands? Sigh. I was uncomfortable with the original age span. I was furious at the brother. And Kelly was so determined not to let Jax back in her life that I thought she was a royal idiot at times, certainly not worth all he went through to win her. A few side notes: I didn't like the novel within a novel at all, nor the conversations with the inner novel's characters. I fully suspected who the famous writer was. And I loved Jax's sister.
I like MOST of the Suzanne Brockmann books I have read. LOVE Troubleshooters! And like most of those I've read for the OTHER Seal Team (not Team 16 of Troubleshooters fame) -- liked Harvard's Education, liked Hawken's Heart, especially liked Identity Unknown -- tho not as thrilled with Forever Blue (thought Lucy was too much of a hard-ass). Upcoming to buy will be Everyday Average Jones. Didn't care for the one with a heroine running an inn - Future Perfect. LOVED Born to Darkness - sci-fi & all!
