Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

An author whose (pseudonymous) debut novel is an instant best-seller is revealed to be the survivor of a horrific family tragedy. Now, her identity no longer a secret, she’s forced to revisit the events she’s spent so many years trying to bury and to find out, finally, who murdered her sister almost two decades ago. Brown’s latest thriller should appeal to her many fans. It has a solidly constructed story, with just enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing; a strong and engaging protagonist; and some very effective writing. Readers who are well versed in the thriller genre might see some of the author’s surprises coming, but even if you know what’s going to happen, it doesn’t ruin the enjoyment of the novel. Brown is a proven entity, a big-name writer who reliably delivers the goods, and demand for this title should be high. --David Pitt

Format: Hardcover
Low Pressure is a highly entertaining, suspenseful novel that will having you guessing until the very end!

Sandra Brown has created a fantastic set of likable characters in this newest novel. Unpretentious rich girl Bellamy has repressed childhood memories of the day her sister was murdered. She's written a novel, Low Pressure, in an effort to bring those memories to the forefront and bring the suspicion she has that the wrong man was accused and found guilty of the murder. She teams up with her sister's then boyfriend, Dent, an airplane pilot and self-proclaimed bad boy, to solve the mystery that still surrounds her sister's death.

There are many twists and turns during Bellamy and Dent's investigation. Bellamy has to face some nasty truths about her sister and by digging up the past she's put both her and Dent's lives in danger from quite a few shady characters.

Many chapters end with a cliff hanging sentence which made me not want to put the book down. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen in the next chapter. There's a nice steamy love scene in this one which does not disappoint.

For me the best thing about this book was I had no idea who the real murderer was. I knew who I thought didn't do it but didn't figure out who did until it was disclosed in the book...a very rare thing.

One request from the author...I want to read Bellamy's Low Pressure!

Format: Hardcover
It's been awhile since I struggled to finish a book as much as this one. After reading the sensational book Lethal, I had high hopes and expectations for this one. Unfortunately, this one fell way short.

The chemistry that was so scorching and believable in Lethal was missing in this book. I love romantic suspense novels, and I would concede that it is difficult to find a book that can balance both the romance and the suspense plots equally.

Low Pressure tells the story of a woman who is trying to deal with the murder of her sister. She has repressed memories from the night her sister was killed and has written a "fictional" book that rehashes the night of the tornado that changed so many lives forever. There was a trial, and a man was convicted of the murder, but Bellamy fears that an innocent man was framed for the murder.

Add in a host of secondary characters: the convicted man's brother who is bent on revenge, a guilt ridden prosecutor in the case, Bellamy's sisters former boyfriend, his father figure, and a terminally ill father, and you have a fairly intricate plot to dissect.

Unfortunately, I was never invested in any of the characters enough to care. Dent's character was never particularly attractive to me and Bellamy got on my nerves almost immediately. The suspense plot was fairly easy to see and I was able to guess what was going on before it was revealed.

This was a miss for me, but Lethal was a complete hit. I guess there are different strokes for different folks, and this one was not for me.

A big thanks to Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an ARC for review!!!

Format: Hardcover
The plot of Brown's novel is simple enough: In an effort to find closure, Bellamy Price, the daughter of a wealthy Texas family, writes a fictional account of a family tragedy that occurred eighteen years ago on the site of a Memorial Day celebration but also a devastating tornado that left nine people dead in its wake. And one murder victim, Bellamy's sister, Susan Lyston. Based on a sensational murder and trial, the novel attracts enormous media attention, old wounds reopened for many of the individuals involved, not to mention long-buried hidden skeletons. One such individual is Denton Carter, Susan's boyfriend at the time of her death, the detective's first suspect, though Allen Strickland is eventually convicted of the crime, then murdered in prison. Dale Moody, the lead detective, has never found peace with his part in the investigation, but Rupe Collier, the prosecutor, a successful businessman, has developed an appetite for media attention. Adding to the drama, Bellamy's father is in the last stages of terminal illness, Bellamy's step-mother, Olivia, afraid to leave his side, Bellamy's step-brother having distanced himself from the family over the years.

Brown is an accomplished storyteller, at her best mixing personalities, motives, truth and lies, Bellamy's notoriety drawing the attention of tabloid reporter Rocky Van Durbin, as well as Strickland's brother, Ray, a loose cannon in search of revenge for the injustice done his brother. A young girl's crush on Denton, now an airline pilot Bellamy charters to take her father to the hospital, adds romantic tension, the pilot's life nearly destroyed by the investigation and animosity of the powerful Lyston family.
