DON'T MESS WITH DADDY'S GIRL is her second novel in her romantic suspense venue. In the author's words, `This book is a dramatic tale of passion and love mixed with a classic cop story. It is a novel that can be enjoyed by both genders; whether the reader wants a whodunnit-style mystery, an edge-of-your-seat thrill, or a heart-warming conclusion, they'll find it here.' And even the Prologue of this sets the mood for an intense state of atmosphere that pleads explanation. Michael and Jessica enjoy an intense romance: Michael is a stockbroker with solid grounding in a company called Saigon; Jessica happens to be the daughter of the Chief of Police Mark Tame. These three characters become immersed in a peculiar (and well orchestrated!) triangle - Michael's ties to Saigon are threatened when a serial killer enters the stage and Mark Tame enters to investigate the threats Michael receives. The plot thickens considerably when Jessica is abducted form a family wedding and the danger engulfs Michael, Jessica, and Mark Tame. Sandy Appleyard is able to manipulate the clues and leads and dead-end ideas so well that the reader is compelled to stay with this novel to the very well written (and satisfying) end.
This is one of those mystery novels, well tempered with passion and romance that gives the reader the feeling that reflection after completing the story actually reveals how cleverly the author has planted the seeds of the mystery through out the book. That is a sign of a talent with a very promising career. Grady Harp November 14
This book is incredibly well written and edited. There are no grammatical errors, misspellings or typos. The characters are all well developed (and there are many) and their own stories and sub-plots are well crafted to tie beautifully into the main storyline. There is a lot of dialogue that allows the reader to really feel as though they are a part of the scene and gives tremendous insight into the mind of personality of the characters. I was not expecting the intensity and suspense in the second half of the book. The story truly has all the makings of a made for TV crime drama. The author delivered an amazing ending with a surprise twist that couldn't be more perfect. I strongly dislike cliff hangers and the ending wraps things up in a way that will make all the suspense worthwhile.
Sandy Appleyard has created a true multi-genre story with romance, crime, drama and suspense. "Don't Mess With Daddy's Girl" is a great read from an immensely talented author.
Michael’s life is pretty great: Great job as a stockbroker, financially secure, and he is madly in love with his girlfriend, Jessica. Until, that is, Jessica is abducted. Then his whole world is turned upside down. When Jessica’s father, Police Chief Mark Tame, starts working the case (conflict-of-interest much?), he starts digging into MIchael’s business dealings, which become more and more apparent are directly linked to Jessica’s disappearance. The tension and suspense only build from there, and the excitement grows, as well.
This story is a perfect balance of action, drama, and suspense, as well as a romance storyline that doesn’t feel tacked on and superfluous. The characters are very well rounded and fleshed out, and the unlikely team of Michael and Mark is a compelling one to read. The most surprising part of this book, is that it is one book. That is, it’s not a Book 1 of a planned series of books with the same characters. In this era of every new movie being the first of an “epic trilogy” and every video game being another iteration on the same game again and again, it is nice to see a self contained story, that gets neatly wrapped up in the end. Oops, I mean…. maybe they don’t find Jessica!?! Sorry…
A really good one off story, well worth the read.
