Review

If you want romantic suspense that has teeth . . . Sandra Brown is your gal. (Stephen King)

Praise for Sandra Brown:

Get your page-turning finger ready for Sandra Brown's latest (New Woman on CHILL FACTOR)

THE CRUSH delivers a menacing villain and page-turning suspense (Booklist)

'If you want romantic suspense that's got teeth . . . Sandra Brown is your gal' (Stephen King)

From the Inside Flap

A fearless reporter trapped in a volatile siege, two young lovers turned fugitive, and a holdup that transforms a small desert town into a powder keg.... Now #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown demonstrates her unparalleled powers of invention to once again tell a story that combines deep emotion with edge-of-the-seat suspense.

TV reporter Tiel McCoy is driving down Interstate 20 on her way to New Mexico for a well-earned vacation. But her itinerary is rewritten when she hears on the radio that the teenage daughter of well-known Fort Worth multimillionaire Russell Dendy has been kidnapped. At least that's the official report. In truth Sabra Dendy is pregnant and has run away with her boyfriend, Ronnie Davison. After calling her editor, Tiel abandons her holiday plans in favor of pursuing the story.

Then, in a town called Rojo Flats, during an innocuous visit to a convenience store, Tiel will come up close and personal with the barrel of a gun, the desperate young lovers -- and the scoop of a lifetime.

In the electrifying standoff that follows, she will meet and grow to trust a strangely familiar local rancher whom fate has also sent to the scene of the crime. She will learn why the two young runaways fear the wealthy father of one of them even more than the FBI ... and why, casting off a reporter's impartiality, she must defend them against a world bent on their destruction.

Poignant, riveting, and offering a new twist or turn on every page, STANDOFF is suspense at its best, as only Sandra Brown can create it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This lacks Sandra's usual detailed plot. I finished the book quite quickly, but I cannot say I was gripped by the storyline, even thought it was a hostage situation. A fairly predictable conclusion, with fairly transparent characters.

It's a cute short read. Not her best but I got it for free and it was enjoyable.

TV reporter Tiel McCoy is driving to New Mexico for a well-earned vacation when she hears the news on the radio: The teenage daughter of Fort Worth tycoon Russell Dendy has been a kidnapped. Immediately, she abandons her holiday plans to chase down what could be the scoop of a lifetime. But in a town called Rojo Flats an innocuous stop at a convenience store thrusts her directly into the dramatic story--and a dangerous drama. For inside the shop two desperate young lovers are holding a half dozen frightened hostages ... and a powder keg of a standoff is about to test Tiel's courage, journalistic objectivity, and everything she has ever believed

A considerbly shorter novel than usual Sandra Brown ones, but it works due to the story line.
Meant to be going on holiday, TV news reporter Tiel McCoy is caught up in a hostage situation at a gas station. The story is focused on the tale of the two hostage takers, and the people who are caught up in their personal vendetta. It is a fast paced novel, but it is still a short story, and whilst some of the story is believable being in the fast paced nature, other parts don't work so well. There are a couple of lucky coincidences that are a little contribed but overall it works well as a short story.

This is the first book I have read by Sandra Brown and right from the start absolutely loved the storyline. So well written I felt as if I was in the convenience store when it was happening. Great characters and a hit from page one. Highly recommended.
