Book Review: Mean Streak

Mean Streak by Sandra Brown: Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law.

As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer.

Lori's thoughts: It's been awhile since I've read anything by Sandra Brown. Now, I'm wondering what took me so long. Romance, suspense, action, you name it. This book was riveting and I only put it down when I had to. Twisty and turny and even when I thought I had it all wrapped up in a neat little bow, I was wrong. I like that in my reads. This one had enough heat to keep me rooting for the unlikely couple and enough questions to keep me flipping through the pages. The heroine was someone I really liked. The setting was perfect for the tale. If you haven't read anything by Sandra Brown lately, or at all, I highly suggest you give her a try ... starting with this book.
