Book Description

Between the responsibility for the care of her injured mother and straightening out her muddled finances, public health researcher Sarah Wright hasn't a minute to herself, much less time to repair a fractured romance. After a much loved aunt goes missing, Sarah is convinced it's a kidnapping but the police refuse to investigate. Former fiancé Dan flies to Sarah's side to help—and it looks like things might come back together for the two of them—until Sarah is arrested for her aunt's murder. As evidence stacks up against her, Sarah must find the real culprits as well as unravel decades old family secrets along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging read November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 stars! When I picked up Some Other Child I was pleasantly surprised to find out it is actually a prequel to Sharon Buchbinder's erotic suspense, Desire and Deception.

I read the latter recently and the combination of mystery, thriller and highly erotic romance was well deserving of its RT Book Reviews' nomination for Best Erotic Fiction Book of 2011.

While Some Other Child does not have the erotic/romantic element I usually enjoy in my reading, the mystery, suspense and humor in this story is top-notch, and Ms. Buchbinder tackles the difficult subject of child abuse and its aftermath with compassion.

Whether you have already met Sarah Wright-Rosen in Desire and Deception, or whether you are meeting her for the first time in Some Other Child before she and Dan Rosen get together, her story - and that of her mother and "aunt" - will grip and hold you from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend! December 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
SOME OTHER CHILD grabbed me at page one and didn't let me go until the very end. Sharon Buchbinder has created a cast of compelling and relatable characters in a story filled with suspense, family drama, and carefully buried secrets. A captivating read laced with humor and heart, in which even the most painful subjects are tackled with sensitivity and grace, and an ending that leaves the reader feeling uplifted.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story of love and inflatable bikinis November 25, 2012
By HCL
Format:Paperback
Sharon Buchbinder's most recent print novel tells a story of adventure, love, family, and inflatable bikinis (seriously! I had no idea this was a real thing, but Google says that it is). At several points in the story, I laughed out loud (causing my poor husband to request an explanation). The impressive thing about this story is that the plot revolved around something depressing (child abuse) but the story itself is actually uplifting. A delicate subject, handled with care, made for a very enjoyable book that I can wholeheartedly recommend. (P.S. Don't read the back cover because it gives away a little too much of the plot, a little too early.)

I also enjoyed this author's collection of short stories, Killer Kisses, and I am getting ready to read Desire and Deception. If you like warm, funny romance stories, I recommend that you head down to your local bookstore and pick up a copy of one of Sharon's books. (If you're in Punta Gorda, Florida you can easily get a signed copy.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo for Some Other Child November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When a book draws me in and takes me away from my own world, I consider it a book worth sharing. Sharon Buchbinder's, Some Other Child kept me engrossed from the moment the heroine had to make the choice between the love of a good man and the care of her ill mother. But when life becomes even more complicated and distorted for Sarah Wright, her family and close friends, the world she knows narrows and becomes intricately entwined. The author handles the subject matter with a professional and yet delicate manner, letting the characters unveil their darkest secrets, with strength and love.

Though this story wasn't a traditional 'love story', there was romance. This story is about love and life,forgiveness and trust and friendships that run deeper than blood. It's a story about Love in its truest form.
I laughed, I cried, I cheered and I learned a thing or two along the way...just what any good book should do for it's reader. I highly recommend this as a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL STORY October 11, 2012
By linda
Format:Kindle Edition
Thirty year old Sarah Wright lives in Chicago, Illinois with her fiance Dan Rosen. Sarah is in a doctoral program and everything in her life is going well until she receives a phone call from her mother Ethel. Ethel is in her seventies and is an alcoholic who has just had a car accident and has broken both her legs. Although Sarah has a brother and a sister they both refuse to do anything to help their mother who they consider to be more trouble than she is worth. Unable to turn down Ethel's plea for help Sarah leaves behind everything she loves, especially Dan and returns to Baltimore where her mother lives.

It has been a year since Sarah moved in with her mother and once again after finally recovering from her injury Ethel has gone back to drinking. One night returning from work Sarah is greeted by police cars in her mother's driveway. She is informed that her mother was found near dead outside in the freezing cold and if it wasn't for her dog she would definitely be dead. While lying in a coma Sarah makes many discoveries about her mother and her Aunt Ida, her mom's best friend. First, Ethel has not been paying her bills, a thousand dollars a month is automatically withdrawn from her checking account and it is sent to aTelevangelist named Bobby Moore. In addition to all of that her mom's supplemental medical insurance has lapsed due to lack of payment. Sarah is convinced that things couldn't get any worse. But of course she was wrong. Someone tries to run Sarah over and notes are left near her office written in blood.

Sarah's Aunt Ida confesses to her how she met her mother. They both met at a home for unwed mothers. Ida was twelve years old and pregnant by her drunken abusive step-father.

More About the Author

After working in health care delivery for years, Sharon Buchbinder became an association executive, a health care researcher, and an academic in higher education. She had it all--a terrific, supportive husband, an amazing son and a wonderful job. But that itch to write (some call it an obsession) kept beckoning her to "come on back" to writing fiction. Thanks to the kindness of family, friends, critique partners, and beta readers, she is published in contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and romantic suspense--as well as textbooks! When not attempting to make students, colleagues, and babies laugh, she can be found herding cats, waiting on a large gray dog, fishing, dining with good friends, or writing.
