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.

What a fantastic book. First time I have read any of hers and I couldn't put it down. Read it in one day. Very easy to follow, great story, total page turner. I recommend to anyone who likes James Patterson etc

One of my favourite authors of all time - I would recommend her crime thrillers to anyone who loves this genre.

Sandra Brown has written some fantastic books but the last one was a decade ago and I have found all her recent books formulaic and rather boring. This one is readable but only just. No chemistry between the leads, the heroine (as so often a reporter) I found annoying and struggled to get to the end. Read her older stuff instead.
