MEAN STREAK by Sandra Brown - Sarah's Review
Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.
While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.
Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law.
As the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer.
This was my first Sandra Brown book and I can definitely say it will NOT be my last! I don't want to say too much and give the story away but I can say that I had no idea what to expect, and right up until the very end, I still had no idea how it would all play out. I was so engaged from the first page and loved the chemistry the couple had, and the suspense was perfect. You think you know where its going and then things turn on a dime leaving you reading way into the night to find out what will happen next!
Great writing, I wouldn't change a thing about it! I loved how easy to follow it was and how there weren't so many characters that you forget who's who. I Can't wait to try some of her other romantic suspense novels. I encourage anyone who loves that genre or even just regular romance (because she started out writing romance novels) to check out her site at: http://www.sandrabrown.net/
MY RATING: 5 BOOK BOYFRIENDS!
