"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

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. This was one of those books. While there are a few things I can’t give away, I can tell you that this is without a doubt a book you need to have in your library. Emory’s story starts off with quite a bang and doesn’t let up until the very end. There were so many twists and turns and questions along the way and it all had me glued to this book. Emory’s husband was suspect from the start and I didn’t know if he was the one behind her accident or even if it was an accident. Ms. Brown did an amazing job with giving the reader warring emotions when it came to him. There was also the stranger to consider. Emory’s savior…or was he? I will tell you that from the time we meet him you just know the story behind him is going to be emotional…good or bad, it was going to be rough. He is one of the most memorable and incredible characters I’ve ever read. No, he doesn’t speak a whole lot. No, we don’t know his name until the last few chapters. No, we don’t find out his story until the very end but that didn’t make one bit of difference. His actions and mannerisms said more than words. He is rigid and tough, living simply but has a soft side he shows only a few times in this story. But still we are left to wonder if he’s dangerous or if he’s one of the good guys. We are lead to believe from the hints he gives of himself that he isn’t exactly one of the good guys but it didn’t matter to me…I loved him anyway.
Of course, while Emory is in the woods, her husband and friends are looking for her and that leads to more than a few revelations that had me gasping audibly more than a few times. I can’t give anything away but be ready for a heaping spoonful of “I never saw THAT coming”!
Just trust me when I say this is a book you need to read. Suspense, mystery, and high emotion are just a few of the facets that make Mean Streak one of the best books I have ever read. Thank you, Ms. Brown, for a phenomenal story that will stay with me for a very long time.
At first him and Emory are like oil and oil they do not do well together. emory is fearful since she knows nothing about him. But in 4 days things can change and this definitely does. The most entertaining characters for me are the detectives Knight and Grange. they were a hoot. And will have you smile and laugh during their investigation.
A tangle web of intrigue, danger, egos and figuring out how to forgive yourself and find a way to reconcile things in your mind so you can go forward is a part of this never ending twisty and riveting tale that has you wondering who was out to get Emory and why and what the heck was going on with Hayes.
I wasn't a big fan of her earlier works, but I do feel I'm enjoying more and more with every new book. Mean Streak was another expemple of a great work. I believe it was the first time I didn't skip a page - there were no "dead zones", evey character (friend or foul) was interesting and intriguing, The hero and heroine here are far from perfect - which makes them very easy to relate to. the plot was fast paced and much more shophisiticarted than I expected, and I was acutally surprised a number of time throughout the book. I really felt like the author respects me as a reader and doesn't take her readers for fools like other authors in this genre do.
there are a few imperfections - some of the characters are too evil or too good, thus somewhat cliches. in addition, some small plot items are a bit far-fetched. this, however, in no way damages the reading experience of this book.
all in all - great reading experience (I really didn't want this book to end). I definiately recomend.
