Review

Praise for Sandra Brown
 
“A masterful storyteller.”—USA Today
 
“A novelist who can’t write them fast enough.”—San Antonio Express-News
 
“Brown’s storytelling gift [is] surprisingly rare.”—Toronto Sun

From the Publisher

From the heat of an Acapulco night...

Cyn McCall knew she could always count on her late husband's friend and business partner, Worth Lansing. He could make her laugh and forget her problems. She could tease him about his many romantic entanglements. The last thing Cyn expected was to find herself longing for a man who could never settle down. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The type of books Sandra Brown writes today are comprehensive with character development and detailed plots lines. Before that, she used to write the smaller novels under different pseudonyms, where the plot line was a simple "boy and girl fall in love" formula, and that's what this book is, so you have to judge it on it's own merit, not on the books that she writes today. Having said that, this was just a delightful book, one that I read in under two hours, and one that I enjoyed so much, that I pick it up from time to time and read it again, because it just reads so quickly.

The basic storyline is that Cyn, Tim and Worth were best friends through college, and Cyn and Tim married and had a son. When their son was two years old, Tim was killed in a car accident. Worth was always there for Cyn and her son -- as a dear friend. They had the type of comfortable male-female relationship that Cyn could always pop in on Worth at his home, lean on his shoulder for advice about coping and just having a good friend to hang out with. Worth was a handsome ladies man, and would tell Cyn about his exploits with women. Two years after Tim's death, things change between them. Worth gets invited to spend the weekend in Alcapulco with his latest girlfriend, a travel agent, but at the last minute, she can't go, but the tickets and room are bought and paid for, so she tells him to go anyway w/o him. Worth decides to go, to get away from the stress of his job as a stockbroker, but that evening before he leaves, Cyn pops in to tell him her woes at work as a social worker at a hospital, about how her life is stressed out, too, with having to care for a 4 year old, and about a handsome doctor who keeps asking her out, that she has no interest in.

Format: Audio CD
It's hot in Acapulco - hot on the beaches, hot in the discos, and hot between the pages of A Whole New Light as read by Texas actress Staci Snell. This voice performer who also read Sandra Brown's Demon Rumm has a young, often soft voice that is nevertheless distinct. Her articulation is pin perfect. With this story of Cyn McCall she imbues the character with both vulnerability and strength. Amazing what a gifted voice performer can do!

In Brown's latest steamy scenario Cyn is beautiful, of course, but very much alone since her husband's untimely death. His business partner, Worth Lansing, has been a support to her throughout her grieving process. Above all, he was a friend, one in whom she could confide and rely upon.

However, there was one thing about Worth and that was his way with women. He is, to use an old saw, a love `em and leave `m kind of guy. The relationship between Cyn and Worth is so close that she can smile and give him a hard time about his lengthy list of romances.

The time comes when Worth invites Cyn to spend a weekend in Acapulco, get away from the routine and relax. Little did either of them know that fate would step in and they'd find themselves sharing a room - an unexpected occurrence with the expected outcome in a book by Brown.

What will come of a night of unbridled ardor - is it a one time thing or the beginning of a lasting relationship?

Romance fans, get in line for this one!

Format: Paperback
Very impressed with this early book from Ms. Brown. Showing us that love can bloom again, and sometimes even brighter than before in the least likely place...
Cyn lost her husband 2 years ago and she is finally getting her life together and dedicating it to her son when her husband's best friend and her best friend sexy heartthrob Worth asks her to use the ticket meant for his weekend fling with him because he doesn't want to go alone to Acapoco, Mexico.
His sexy 'fling' can't go at the last minute and Worth knows Cyn needs a break. Finally talking her into leaving her life behind for some innocent fun and sun with his best friend things can't seem to get any better...until Worth finds himself looking at Cyn in a whole new light once they arrive in the tropical paradise. Then he wonders if things can go from great to bad in so short a time... and they do.
An innocent kiss causes shockwaves and causes a chain of events that leads them to make some very risky choices.
Riddled with guilt for ruining her husband's memory, Cyn packs up early and things only turn further for the worse when the two best friends realize it wasn't just the tropical sun that caused the crazy attraction that night...its in their blood now.
Can they save their friendship before its ruined? Can Cyn admit she can love again? Will they let their hearts heal finally?
Very emotional and touching. I loved it. Worth was amazing and a true hero. Definately worth the read...

Unlike the many other Sandra Brown book that I have read, this is one of the best. It is very romantic, and exciting. I had a hard time putting this book down. As soon as I read the first two pages I was hooked. I think Acapulco was a great setting for this story. It set the mood in many parts, and gave the book a certain mystery to it. I myself would read it over and over again
