(128)Low Pressure by Sandra Brown

Low Pressure

Publication Date: September 18, 2012
Pages: 480

Bellamy Price is still haunted by the death of her sister eighteen years ago.  She was murdered during a tornado that ripped through the heart of Austin, Texas.  Even though Bellamy was only twelve, she has blocked out many of the events of that day.  To try and reclaim those memories Bellamy has written a nearly true fictional novel under a pseudonym.  Bellamy has every intention of staying anonymous, but a pesky tabloid reporter has made it his mission to reveal Bellamy and publicly bringing all the pain of that time to the surface.

Bellamy does not expect her late sister's boyfriend, Dent to read the book and raise all sorts of hell with her.  And she certainly doesn't expect to find herself attracted to the handsome Flyboy. With her father rapidly declining with cancer, this whole mess certainly could not have come at a worse time.  Will she ever be able to fill in the gaps of her memory and what will happen if/when she does remember?

Sandra Brown has been on my "must read" list ever since high school. Her books always seemed so scandalous to me.  The sex scenes that once seemed so salacious, now seem a bit repetitive to me. The story was a little fresh in terms of the tornado, but for the most part it seemed like a story that I had read before.  Beautiful woman is trying to solve some sort of crime and a handsome, yet roguish man gets in her way, then becomes indisposable to her. Crime solved and they live happily ever after. 

Bottom line, Low Pressure is an okay book if you are just looking for a mindless love/suspense story.  I think that I am tired of the old Sandra Brown formula and it might be time for me to move on.  Are you a fan of Sandra Brown's?  Let me know what you think of Low Pressure.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
