Editorial Reviews


"DEADLINE is both a breathtaking and heartbreaking story; one that will stay with the reader long after the book is finished."

"Deft characterizations and eye for detail make this a winner...Satisfying, vintage Brown storytelling."
Kirkus on DEADLINE

"Sandra Brown meticulously develops a stellar cast of characters, weaving them into a tense, gritty thriller that offers numerous plot twists leading to stunning revelations and a nail-biting conclusion....I'm now wondering why I waited so long to enjoy this talented author's work. I highly recommend Brown's Low Pressure. Its multilayered, intricate and suspenseful storyline is enriched with vivid descriptions and crisp dialogue. If you enjoy romantic suspense, Low Pressure is a book you'll want to read in one sitting."—USA Today on LOW PRESSURE

"A good old-fashioned thriller, and a winner..."—Kirkus on LOW PRESSURE

"Sexual tension fueled by mistrust between brash Denton and shy Bellamy smolders and sparks in teasing fashion throughout."—Publishers Weekly on LOW PRESSURE

"Hair-raising . . . a perfect mix of thriller and romantic suspense."—USA Today on LETHAL

"Pulse-pounding . . . a relentless pace and clever plot."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on LETHAL

I must first thank Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for the ARC and the opportunity to review Mean Steak.

A little background ... Emory, a well known doctor, disappears while training for an upcoming marathon. Her husband doesn't immediately report her missing. Meanwhile, Emory awakes in a strangers company.

What follows is a story that is not always what it seems. Brown delivers a fast-paced read with believable characters {sometimes so believable I was ready to throttle them myself}. Wait until you get to the final twist. I for one didn't see it coming. I love it when I think I've got it all figured out and the author throws in that last surprise!

A fantastic read that will appeal to all mystery/thriller readers who like a little romance thrown in.

Mark your calendars for August 19, 2014. You'll want to grab Mean Streak as soon as it hits shelves!

Mean Streak is the newest novel from author Sandra Brown and a novel I was beyond lucky to have read early. I was intrigued from the synopsis and by the end of the book I was completely in love with every single aspect of this story. Amazing doesn’t even begin to do it justice.
Pediatrician Emory Charbonneau’s love for long distance running has been a bone of contention in her marriage for quite some time now but that won’t deter her from heading off a hundred miles into the mountains on a training run. In fact, it’s just the weekend break she needs to take a breather from the latest argument she had with her husband. Things were looking more and more bleak in her marriage and she would deal with it…when she got back. Unfortunately that wouldn’t be on Sunday as she had planned. Emory sets off on her run and wakes in a small cabin with a gash on her head, a headache from hell, and a stranger taking care of her. Her immediate reaction is one of fear and confusion but almost as quickly as those feelings settle in she senses this stranger wouldn’t hurt her and with bad weather rolling in and no way to contact her husband or friends, she would be stuck with him for a day or two. Hopefully her second set of emotions ring true and this stranger won’t be putting her in danger while she recovers a bit and tries to figure out how she ended up in this situation in the first place. Was she attacked? By this man? Did she fall? By the time her stay in the mountain cabin is over she will be warring with too many emotions to name and will have to reconcile with the fact that maybe the people she has trusted aren’t the ones she should and maybe this stranger was….
You all know I read. A lot. And every once in a while a book comes along that touches me on a different level and when it happens it’s magic.

If you are looking for an edge of your seat, up all night reading, suspenseful romance; then look no further, Mean Streak by Sandra Brown should be your next read! With endless twists and turns, this book reminded me of one of my all-time favorites, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

This is the type of read where you must question everything, dissect every line, and be cautious not to be tantalized by the low hanging fruit. Moreover, it makes the passion all the more decadent and raw, when you're constantly questioning the characters' mores and motivations, making your heart and passion fall for what should be forbidden and undoubtedly what common sense tells you to be wary of. But in fiction like in life, you can't help who you fall in love with. Sandra Brown is a wiz at this writing style, which is one of my all-time favorites.

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, is in a relatively loveless marriage. A pediatrician and marathon runner, she is a Type A personality who approaches everything in life with her incredible drive and motivation. The fact that she is heiress also allows her to support numerous charitable causes and she is very well liked and respected in the community.

When she disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina, while training alone for a marathon, it launches a massive manhunt. Bad weather conditions, however, make finding her difficult, and form the perfect excuse, or is it motivation, for the loner who finds her to keep her in his secluded cabin.

The authorities question why Emory's husband, Jeff, took so long to report her missing. Soon motives abound, but they still can't find her due to the inclement weather.

Format: Hardcover
I did not care for this book. I hate Harlequin romance books and this is what it was like to me. It is one of those where the two main characters are drawn to each other but have to "fight their passion for each other". A few pages of this wouldn't be bad but it went on for the whole book and I wanted to scream go again and go to bed together and get it over and concentrate more on the story. I also figured out the "bad guy" by the second chapter. The reason the main male character was hiding out once it was revealed was unrealistic I thought. This is just my opinion and I am sure by the good reviews that are posted that a lot of people like this kind of book and more power to them but it is not for me.
