Don’t Get Wrongfully Accused

At first I saw Lethal on the rack and wondered if I would want to pick it up. After Tough Customer I was hesitant and not because it was a bad book which is far from the truth, but I wasn’t sure if it would be a roller coaster. Lethal had its ups and downs but there was not so much betrayal on the main characters which I liked.

Honor Gillette and her daughter Emily lived alone after her husband was killed in a fatal car accident. Her world will get turned upside down though when she encounters a man who just killed seven people.

Lee Corban is wanted for murder but he wouldn’t go down without a fight. He is looking for something which will tie everything together and he hopes that Eddie Gillette’s widow, Honor, will provide him with the answers.

With cops and FBI agents looking everywhere, Corban must make a decision and that is to take Honor and Emily with him before anyone else has to die.

This novel was fantastic. I loved it and did not want to put it down. Sandra Brown delivers books which are sometimes tough to read because they are not always romance but mystery or action adventure where the characters are not always at a happy ending.

Her characters were well written and intriguing to read about. I loved the twist and the betrayal as you were not sure who did what and who the person really was. The ending I thought wasn’t going to go how you wanted but it left it open and to a happy ending a reader can imagine which I liked.

I can’t wait for the next novel by Sandra Brown.

The two book series Breakfast in Bed are two shorter novels which are a delight to read for any romance reader. Sandra Brown creates these three friends and splits them up only to see how there lives change with a single action.

Carter and Sloane are instantly attracted but they know it is impossible until they give in. Love blossoms but guilt is strong as both are cheating their best friend. Neither knows how they can live without the other but they know they can’t stay together.

The book was touching to read and very steamy in Carter and Sloane’s relationship. You felt for both characters as how they could not end up together but the end will surprise the reader as a happy ending will come out for all three parties involved.

Send No Flowers

Pierce seemed like the guy but as you find out what is wrong your heart will drop. Sandra Brown keeps you in suspense until the very end which makes the ending that much more exciting.

Rainwater by Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown is one of the authors that I have been reading and was one of my first romance author I started to read.  Her latest book is “Rainwater”.  I was excited to pick up the book and read it since she always has interesting plots but as I started to read the book I knew that it was going to be a tear-jerker.  Finishing up the book I was crying, I was happy but still sad.  It was not a perfect ending but an ending that lead to the characters future in a way.

“The year is 1934.  With the country in the stranglehold of drought and economic boardinghouse with an efficiency that ensures her life will be kept in balance.  Between chores of cooking and cleaning for her residents, she cares for her ten-year-old son, Solly, a sweet but challenging child whose misunderstood behavior finds Ella on the receiving end of pity, derision, and suspicion.

When David Rainwater arrives at the house looking for lodging, he comes recommended by a trusted friend as “a man of impeccable character.” But Ella senses that admitting Mr. Rainwater will bring about unsettling changes.

However, times are hard, and in order to make ends meet, Ella’s house must remain on hundred percent occupied.  So Mr. Rainwater moves into her house…and impacts her life in ways Ella could have forseen.

The changes are echoed by the turbulence beyond the house walls.  Friends and neighbors who’ve thus far maintained a tenuous grip on their meager livelihoods now face foreclosure and financial ruin.  In an effort to save their families from homeless and hunger, farmers and cattlemen are forced to make choices that come with heartaching consequences.

The climate of desperation creates a fertile atmosphere for racial tensions and social unrest.  Conrad Ellis, privileged and spoiled and Ella’s nemesis since childhood, steps into this area of teeming hostility to exact his vengeance and demonstrate the extent of his blind hatred and unlimited cruelty.  He and his gang of hoodlums come to embody the rule of law, and no one in Gilead, Texas, is safe.  Particularly Ella and Solly.

In this hotbed of uncertainty, Ella finds Mr. Rainwater a calming presence.  She is moved by the kindness he shows other boarders, Solly…and Ella herself.  Slowly, she begins to rely on his soft-spoken, his restraint, and the steely resolve of his convictions.

And on the hottest, most violent night of the summer, those principles will be put to the ultimate test.”

In the very beginning I knew what was going to happen.  I had a sense of it but still at the end I was a little surprised and ended up crying a little but crying happy.  The characters of Mr. Rainwater and Ella were delightful to read about.  There story should have been a happy one under different circumstances but for what they had it was true.

This book was another enjoyable romance book to read with feeling, true characters with problems, heartache, friendship, finding love and a story behind them.
