    2. STANDOFF by Sandra Brown was a bit disappointing The plot stretched my imagination.I couldn t really feel anything believable about it and seemed a bit too predictable.The characters were like cardboard caricaturesI couldn t engage with any of themeven the main characters.The dialogueilted.d not real.This was supposed to be a romantic suspense storybut where was the romance I ask I never felt any chemistry between Tiel McCoy and Dr Bradley Stanwick.I have read much better books by this author.

    4. I didn t think it was possible, folks I didn t think I ll ever find a book by Ms Brown that I didn t like In her defence, the book was shorter than usual, so perhaps therein lies the crux of my problem with this book I have even considered not reviewing this book at all, but I felt like writing one anyway because I want to show you that I can give bad reviews from authors that I greatly admire.This story is once again set in Texas This time, it features an ambitious reporter who found herself a [...]

    5. The car was in cruise control, but her brain was in overdrive The most cliched book I have ever read I do not recommend it Ambitious TV reporter just so happens to be in the convenience store where a young runaway couple she is investigating come in to rob the place Luckily, when the young pregnant teen goes into labor there is a handsome rugged doctor to deliver the baby He also has a dark past, of course, to draw in the heroine Don t forget the Hispanic man also in the store who is one the Ten [...]

    6. Kept my interest Enjoyable way to pass the time if you don t expect too much The negative it ended too soon.My main complaint is not knowing what happened to various characters at the end But the rest is good This author is a good writer and she does suspense well Although there is a little bit of romance at the end, don t read it for romance Read it as a suspense story with interesting characters It s about 1 2 the length of a regular novel.The narrator Enid Graham is a new favorite of mine Her [...]

    8. A friend of mine gave me this book I love Sandra Brown, the way she tells a story, along with her writing style, so I gladly excepted This story is as gripping as they come I was pulling for Ronnie and Sabra At times it was nail biting I thought I had the ending figured out With one minor twist I didn t see coming that I found shocking Great characters, great story I give this book 5 of 5 stars

    10. This novel was truly a page turner It had all the elements that keep the reader on the edge of his her seat Sandra Brown built the tension in the story from the first page she has a knack for drawing the reader into the story with her strong characters and complex situations.The twists in the story toward the end of the drama keep the reader guessing The close of the story may have been a little too tidy, but that is fine with romance junkies like me

    11. Sandra Brown is one of those authors whose books I generally buy new, sometimes even in hardback because I can t wait for the cheaper paperback to come out My introduction to her was through her romance novels, starting with HIDDEN FIRES, but THE WITNESS, a mystery suspense, put her on my list of favorite authors and it s still my favorite of her books STANDOFF is the length of the quick romance books at 261 pages, and not as deep or involved as some of her other suspense books The story moves [...]

    13. This was a novella than a usual Sandra Brown novel, and as such, was pretty blah The story never fully develops beyond the actual standoff situation, and we re never given a chance to really connect with our main characters Brown also uses a main character combo a successful tv reporter and the man she has mistakenly wronged that she returns to in a later novel, Smoke Screen We get the obligatory sexual tension between Tiel and Doc, followed by the obligatory sex scene, but it all feels very ob [...]

    14. Inkvotary4,5 starsWow, wow, wow This is as fast paced thriller where you never know what ll happen next I enjoyed every second while reading and had a really great afternoon with it Sandra Brown writes with elegance, blunt and brings her characters into situations you never thought could happen Tiel is a great woman, strong, and whenever she sees a story she does everything to get it and share it with the world.Not this time She starts to realize that sometimes the human behind the story is imp [...]

    15. This may be the worst audio book of all time.The story line is dumb, the characters are stupid and listening to it probably kills brains cells The narrator is okay but should have checked pronunciationsI ve read listened to books that I disliked so much, I wanted to slam them into a wall This one makes me feel that way but I also want to burn down the wall, campaign to make sure some folks never get published and, while I m at it, never get near a computer or typewriter.Did I tell you I hated th [...]

    18. Standoff was a fun, quick read that I finished in one day Tiel McCoy is a tv reporter heading on vacation when she takes a detour to cover a breaking story, and then gets caught in a convenience store when the story she is driving to finds her, and the standoff begins I really liked Tiel, although she did some things that were a little over the top including knocking out an FBI agent and sneaking a video camera to record the unfolding drama It was non stop action and kept me entertained through [...]
