This book was okay It is a reprint of 2 of Brockmann s earlier titles which were ublished in
1995THE FIRST WAS NOT WITHOUT RISK THE HERO JIM first was Not Without Risk The hero Jim and the heroine Emily Marshall had been lovers 7 years before When she found out that her current boyfriend Alex was a drug runner she agrees to have a The Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons police officer go undercover as her brother to catch him Thatolice officer turns out to be Jim This is a type of lot that I don t articulary care for in that I like to read about characters from their first meeting not while they are reuniting but I realize that s just me The author did a good job with the story though and I found I DIDN T MIND TOO MUCH didn t mind too much way they worked through their The Purposeful Graduate problems seemed believable The suspenselot was fairly light and not explored in great detail This is romance than suspense It does that job Inscriptions for Headstones pretty wellThe second book was A Man to Die For The suspenseart of the Thailand's Sickest - Hell To Pay plot was better developed than the first novel It started well with undercover cop Felipe Salazar locking Carrie Brooks in the trunk of her car to save her from some bad guys and to keep his cover going Later they are on the run together But in this book there was alot device that I absolutely hate not just sorta don t like SPOILERSThey are on the run and she thinks he s a bad guy and doesn t believe he s a cop Everytime he convinces her to believe him something happens to bring up some doubt and she doesn t believe him This happens 3 times even after she has said she loves him and will marry him I hate it when the heroine doubts the hero This is overused Huumetsaarin jouluyö plot device in my opinion I want to see a woman standing by a man even in the face of apparentroof he is a bad guy That s a moving love story to me And it happened at least 3 times in this book Felipe was a wonderful character The way he loved her was very well written He deserves better than Carrie This is a common failing with Brockmann s books in my opinion Her male characters are usually fully developed and sympathetic than the females and I many times wonder why exactly the hero fell in love with her Still it was an okay read Just 3 stars because I m grading her against herself and her recent books are much better This was an entertaining mystery set in Florida with heavy romance laced thru it But not too much to ruin the suspense Two short stories the first one Not Without Risk A love story that started while Emily Marshall was in college and met the Hanson Jim Keegan a detective that is helping to catch a rapist in campus Emily will be in love of the officer who ll have an instant attraction for the freshman in college But because of the terrible ghost from the Retail.

In Exchange For Aexchange for a of Patricia Cornwells I knew that she was a big fan of Brockman so I was circumstantial about how I thought the eople behaved and their lack of emotional intelligence To my surprise my friend was even cynical about Brockman s writing than I was She simply enjoyed it for what it was Good for her Nowhere To Run is a double reissue of two of Brockmann s earlier titles. Had once torn her heart to shredsJim Keegan was sure he was over this woman until a Corazones solitarios passionate interlude at an isolated beach house showed him the truth he’d been hiding from for so long Now he knew exactly what he had lost when he walked away from her and what he would lose forever if he couldn’t save herA Man to Die ForWHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR LOVECarrie Brooks’ answer leave her home her job her very existence to run. Both were originallyublished in 1995 but stand up retty well today there s nothing super pretty well today There s nothing super about either of these stories but it is Brockmann so you know the writings above average and while they re fairly simple in the lot department they re also credible romantic and ultimately satisfying She always manages to add these little details to her characters that make them relatable and damn if she doesn
