"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

Deadline by Sandra Brown is a Grand Central Publication and will be released on September 24, 2013. Amelia is a widow with two children. She has removed herself from public life as much as possible. Her deceased husband, Jeremy, was murdered by his lover's husband and now Amelia is having to testify at his trial. This has brought out reporters and other media, causing Amelia to attempt to keep a low profile. However, she never suspects someone would go so far as to move in right next door and break in to her home and spy on her. Which is exactly what Dawson did, and he got he caught- by Amelia. Dawson, like Amelia's former husband, is suffering for PTSD. Dawson was a reporter covering the war effort. He came home with horrible nightmares and has resorted to popping pills and drinking too much. When he gets a phone call about covering this trial, he has other reasons for agreeing to it. He never expected to be so drawn to Amelia or her two boys. Amelia is furious at being spied on, so she and Dawson get off to a rather rocky start. But, Amelia's boys just love Dawson and before long, Amelia grudgingly opens up to Dawson a little. However, there have been some rather odd occurrences going on around Amelia's home. She suspects Dawson at first, but he swears he knows nothing about it. Then during a storm, when Amelia's nanny goes into to town for some supplies and never comes back, the investigation opens up the possibility that Jeremy may not have been murdered by his lover's husband after all. While we are pondering on all that, we are given excepts into Jeremy's childhood through a diary his mother kept. Jeremy's parents were vigilantes and his father was particularly cruel. Jeremy didn't fit in with that lifestyle so his parents gave him to a friend to raise. Things might have been alright with Jeremy, but he came back from the war a changed man. Or did he? Since Jeremy's father, Carl, was never found, was it possibly the two of them finally met after Jeremy became an adult? What impact would it have on him to know his father was a killer? Amelia never knew anything about Jeremy's past, but she is quickly getting a lesson from Dawson of all people. This would have to be one of the most different novels by Sandra Brown that I have read. This one called attention to the horrors and realities of war. The PTSD suffered by men and women who see things we couldn't possibly imagine and the effect that has on their coping mechanism. The plot is twisted. So many lives were manipulated by one hard, cold, killer. A man hunt that has lasted for years, the danger Amelia and her sons are in, and the secrets Dawson are keeping, has the suspense mounting. The feelings that develop between Dawson and Amelia can only grow once Dawson is able to come to some kind of peace in regards to his past. Not only about his PTSD, but about his heritage. I loved the way he managed to use his gifts as a reporter to bring about closure, not only for himself, but for many others as well. This is a multi-layered story with Brown's usual twist and turn type romantic suspense, but there were many other issues at hand in this one. I recommend this one to all the lovers of romantic suspense and mysteries, but this one could also appeal to those that like women's fiction and contemporary romance. Another solid effort by Sandra Brown. This one is an A.
Dawson Scott an investigative reporter returns from Afghanistan with PTSD. He goes to Savannah at the request of FBI Agent Headly, his godfather, to check out the trial of a man accused of killing Jeremy Wesson, the son of Carl Wingert, the criminal who got away from him decades ago. Agent Headly has hunted this man for decades and wants the case solved before he retires. Dawson sees Amelia, Jeremy Wesson's ex wife; falls in lust kind of. Although the prosecutor did not have a body, it appears he had a good case that Jeremy had been murdered. Following starts a story of murder, stalking, snipers, and bumbling local police with over large egos getting in the way of apprehending Carl Wingert, a megalomaniac sociopath with thoughts to destroy anything and anyone who gets in his way. I'll not go into any further description of the story because I don't want to ruin it for others.
The book was well written with a lot of twist and turns, but I did not see a great connection/chemistry between Dawson and Amelia, the supposed heroine. All the characters were good, but none was outstanding. I was disappointed in the ending because I didn't really see a HEA but maybe others might.
Good reading all.
