I would have to agree with the other reviewer. Proceed With Caution starts off great and it really does hold the reader's attention until the end. I am not sure what happened but the ending does not flow with the rest of the story.

The plot is based on a single woman having an affair with a well-known, married congressman who based his election on morality. The relationship takes a strange turn when the mistress finds out she is pregnant and congressman lies by saying he had a vasectomy and can no longer have children. While realistically most people in prominent positions would have encouraged the mistress to have an abortion, this congressman decides to pay her $25,000 to keep silent. Meanwhile, a close friend (who has a gambling problem) of the mistress decides there is much more money to be made by blackmailing the congressman. This is where the story started to lose me. It moves from a love affair between two adults to secretly planting video cameras in the mistress house as well as bugging her phone. Then the congressman's bodyguard starts to intimidate and physically harm other parties all at the direction of the congressman.

Without giving away the ending, I will just say that no one will see the path this book takes. While I like surprise endings, I also like for the ending to make sense within the context of the storyline. The ending in this book was totally out of place and left me wondering what the author was thinking when she chose that particular ending. This is definitely not one of Pat Tucker's better books and I would not recommend it.

I know a few writers personally, and one thing that I know is that it's sometimes hard to write a story where an MC or protagonist has differing ideals than the author themselves, i.e. a non-racist author writing from the POV of a racist individual. I say that because here it seems as though there was no bias on the part of the author. It seems as though she holds a personal grudge against women who are or have been mistresses. That can be the only explanation for the downward spiral and subsequent abhorrent ending. It started the uphill climb to "Over the Top Mountain" and then quickly barreled into Nonsense Valley. I would not read this again and would not recommend it to anyone else. This was my first time with this author's work, and I got a bad first impression.

I had to read other reviewers to make sure I wasnt the only one baffled by the ending. The book was definately a page turner but the ending just made no sense whatsoever. I really enjoy Pat Turners books but this one was a tad different than the rest.

This book was crazy. Pat Tucker really had you in there from the very start. The book was very well written, and the characters were great. But the ending, i hated it. The main character Naomi could have made some better decisions.
