I picked up my first Sandra Brown book early in October It was Envy and I absolutely loved it Charade is my 8th book and I guess it is safe to say she is now one of my favorite authors She is so creative with her characters which lends to a captivating story.In Charade we meet Cat Delaney She has been given a second chance at life and wanting something tangible, something that allows her to give back she leaves her acting career behind and makes a move to San Antonio to lead a project that will [...]
I must say since I read my first Sandra Brown book not so long ago, I have been hooked She is a fantastic author I am rarely disappointed A medical miracle gave TV personality Cat Delaney than a new heart It gave her a second chance at life After leaving Hollywood to host a San Antonio TV show spotlighting children with special needs, Cat fights to gain respect as a newscaster She meets Alex Pierce, an ex cop turned crime writer, who regards her as a woman, not as a heart patient.As with a lot [...]
Good but not my favorite of Sandra Brown The beginning was slow and took me a while to get into the story because it was the setup for the main story to come, and that was fine I was glued to the pages but I found myself upping the speed of the narration to get to reveals It seems this Sandra Brown was slow in releasing them The last few chapters were a whirlwind of info and discoveries, one which I guessed and then set aside only to have it come true in the end I have to say it colored the roma [...]
The soul would search endlessly and in vain for its home, while the still beating heart continued to mock the sanctity of death Well, Ms Brown never fails to entertain me and keep me on my toes This was a really great read with a thrilling mystery, danger and romance I was still figuring it out till practically the very end Cat Delaney famed soap opera star gets a new lease on life thanks to a heart transplant With her new heart, she also has a change of heart about her life and up and leaves LA [...]
Es el primer libro que leo de esta autora y con seguridad volver a leer otro Aunque el argumento no es original del todo, Sandra Brown a logrado enfocarlo desde un punto de vista muy interesante qu pasar a si alguien matara a aquellas personas que tal d a recibieron un coraz n nuevo La manera en que la autora te sumerge en la historia es fascinante te muestra los ltimos minutos de vida que tuvieron los donantes de dichos corazones, y despu s juega con el lector para ver si es capaz de encontrar [...]
Leitura agrad vel mas sinceramente esperava mais suspense, mais mist rio, mais ansiedade.
2.5 starsI really love the premise of this book, and the pace is excellent But I feel Cat character sometimes seems forced, irritated and exaggerated Her backstory and a lot of difficulties she has gone through aren t layered in a way that help me connect to the character The romance between Alex and Cat goes from sizzle to fizzle The plotline is crowded with many secondary characters that none of them stand out Suspense, mystery, and romance all fall flat in Charade, imo.
Loved it, review to come.
What can I say I love Sandra Brown Great book
2.5 starsThe couple in this story could have been interesting than it actually was, I guess, but beggars can t be choosers The writing style with regard to characterisation has not aged well, but the energy of the plot as it is the case in most Sandra Brown books does make the reader turn the pages without putting the book down I guessed the identity of the killer almost from the word go but could not identify the person until towards the end if you read this book you ll know why guessing who a [...]
Esta no es la primera novela que leo de la autora y despu s de Imagen en el espejo ten a las expectativas altas, que por cierto, ha cumplido.Es m s una novela de suspense que de romance, al menos as lo veo yo Me ha recordado a esas pel culas que echan por las tardes los fines de semana, pero lo digo como algo positivo Hay que reconocer que es una lectura totalmente adictiva, de esas que tienes ganas de retomar en cada momento libro.Se toca el tema de los trasplantes, del que no se mucho, y me ha [...]

Mais um livro da Sandra Brown que nos deixa o tempo todo em suspense, sempre a querer saber o que vai acontecer a seguir Confesso que de todos os intervenientes na trama, n o tinha imaginado nada que seria este o culpado, algo que eu gosto bastante no livro O que me irritou um pouco que a protagonista boazinha demais, bolas ningu m assim, que irritante Mas gostei do livro, o balan o final muito positivo
The one thing about some of the sandra brown books I have read is that you don t get the everything tied in a bow at 85%, not you get every last drop of the story up until the very last page You are still questioning everything and everyone up until 98% and wondering who in your list of suspects is the real killer Can t say again how much I love this woman s writing, but the proof is in the pudding
no es de los mejores libros que he leido de esta autora, pero ha estado muy entretenido y me ha sorprendido bastante7.5 10

My sister owned a copy of this book for forever it seemed And while I love reading suspense novels I never got around to read this one before we had to read it for our book club a few years ago I probably don t have to say than this It wasn t the last book of Sandra Brown that I read since She got me hooked by the way she was weaving characters and words.The author had me falling into the world of Charade since the first page I emerged only at the last line of the book Needless to say it was a [...]
I won Charade through the First Reads Giveaway on 12 15 2010 and received it on 12 27 2010 I love all of the Sandra Brown books that I have been able to get my hands on, so if you are a Brown fan, you will love this book along with all of the others She really didn t disappoint at all The story never had any slow or draggy parts and of course it was very well written.My only issue with Charade is that for once with a Sandra Brown book, I had picked out who the villan was by about a quarter of th [...]
This is the first book by Sandra Brown I ve read It s been on my shelves of books to read for years, but I ve delayed reading one of hers because I know myself well enough to know that if I liked it I d need to read every one It was very good so I guess I will spend the next couple of years catching up with her mountain of books
I found this book in a box of stuff from middle high school and thought I d give it a reread Wow the cutting edge of organ transplants, people named Judy and some wild sex scenes Probably awesome if you re in 8th grade not so great as an adult.
Another great read by Sandra Brown Very intriguing storyline about Cat Delaney Cat was an orphan and due to illness gets a heart transplant Transplant recipients that received a heart transplant on the same day as Cat start dying on the anniversary date of Cat s transplant Can Cat or anyone figure out who is doing the killings before Cat ends up being the next victim You ll think you know who the killer is several times before it is revealved in the last few pages of the book A page turner and g [...]
Compelling enough to finish, but not my favorite Sandra Brown Too many coincidences and even with a plethora of suspects, I guessed who it was by the middle of the book Also, Cat did way too many dumb things, though she got out of them all right I suppose she had nine lives, like her namesake, har har Sorry Enjoyed the ruminations on the life of a novelist
Este foi o primeiro livro que li da autora e s posso dizer que superou as minhas melhores expectativas Este um romance policial, mas tamb m muito mais do que isso uma hist ria comovente de dor, de perda, de esperan a e do milagre que a vida.Ao ver se entre a vida e a morte Cat Delaney, uma estrela da televis o, toma a consci ncia que a vida lhe deu uma segunda oportunidade Cabe lhe a ela usar essa segunda oportunidade para ajudar os outros crian as traumatizadas que, como ela, tinham perdido os [...]
Peguei v rias vezes neste livro antes de o come ar a ler a s rio, o facto dos primeiros cap tulos serem todos sobre o mesmo dia 10 de Outubro de 1990 era confuso para mim N o conseguia entrar na hist ria e decidi fazer uma pausa de uma semana Quando peguei nele novamente n o consegui larg lo e li cerca de 300 p ginas num dia, n o consegui deitar me sem o acabar A sede de saber quem era o assassino estava a deixar me em nsias e li sem conseguir parar.Extremamente bem conseguido, Obsess o tem a o, [...]
We ll preface this one and say that there s not much that beats a really great Sandra Brown novel She includes all of my favorite things a Southern setting, a tortured but sarcastic hero, a mouthy heroine, a sparkling sexual connection, and a plot that twists itself one way and then the other leaving you breathless until the end She s the queen when it works It sings This one fell flat The whole organ transplant thing had the bare bones to be interesting THe first couple of chapters had me intri [...]
At 11 discs, this was about the longest book on CD that I have listened to, but it held my interest all the way through The characters are solid, and the story moves right along.Cat Delaney is a soap opera star, an orphan who had not been healthy since she was 8 years old After receiving a heart transplant, her focus on life changes and she moves to San Antonio, where she has a specialty TV shows Kat s Kids which tries to get foster kids adopted But the story tells us that on the anniversary of [...]
Such an excellent book I can t put down this book until I finished it The story is well written The suspense is just killing me that it kept me on edge I like how the book can make me guessing who is the culprit Brown gave clues here and there that make my brain working to find the culprit The three stories background for the heart transplant make me guessing, what become of them now So much to speculate and mull over that I never get bored in the middle of the story.It s quite easy for me to gu [...]
