Bellamy stood frozen, her gaze fixed on Moody as he hauled himself up out of his chair, wove his way over to the screened door, pushed it open, and stepped out onto his sorry excuse for a porch. ing his face skyward, he remarked, Looks like we finally may get some rain. Dent glanced out the nearest window and noticed that clouds had gathered in the west, blocking out the setting sun. The atmosphere inside the cabin was gloomy, but due less to the weather than to Moody’s disturbing disclosure. When he came back inside, the screened door shut behind him with a loud clap.

Talk about Low Pressure


Detenta
I bought this book after finishing another Sandra Brown book, Envy, which I loved. The main thing I liked about Envy was the likability of the characters. For some reason I never connected to the characters in this story. They seemed one-dimensional and boring. I figured out who the killer was about halfway through the book, so there wasn't much suspense. I also found the sex scenes rather distasteful, but that might be because I just didn't care for the lead character and her weird intimacy issues. It seems like Sandra Brown likes to use the formulaic goody two-shoes shy girl and the bad boy as her romantic leads. It's predictable.

But the book is an easy read, it moves at a good pace, and it held my attention enough to finish it. If you like Sandra Brown, you may enjoy it, but it's definitely not her best book.

One of the finest storytellers in the business, Sandra Brown, builds tension from the very first page to the very end of Low Pressure. She delivers an exciting novel about a wealthy Texas family whose seventeen-year-old daughter is murdered at a Memorial Day company picnic in the midst of a tornado that killed nine other people. A young local boy last seen with her is eventually convicted of the crime, based only on circumstantial evidence, and sent to prison. Over the years there emerged credible rumors that the legal system might have convicted the wrong person. Some eighteen years after the murder, Bellamy, the younger daughter, now in her thirties, continued to have repressed memories of the tornado and the murder and constantly wondered if the real killer was still at large. In an attempt to come to terms with these stressful memories, she wrote a New York Times best-selling novel titled Low Pressure based on the murder under the pseudonym, T.J. David. Soon it was discovered that the author was not T.J. David but the younger sister of the slain girl, Bellamy Lyston Price. This discovery not only lent more intrigue to the rumors but doubled book sales. However, the disclosure also focused a spotlight on those who were involved from the district attorney and chief homicide detective to the boyfriend, (flyboy) Denton Carter, and all members of the Lyston family. Death threats and accusations of fraud and irresponsible—if not felonious—legal proceedings were publically leveled. Bellamy, and now “sometime” friend, Dent Carter, received the bulk of these threats.
Low Pressure, with its intrigue, sex, brutality and surprises, will keep you turning pages well into the night. I could not guess the murderer until the end. Sandra Brown also knows how to wrap-up a story with a surprise ending—she’s done a masterful job in Low Pressure.
I rate the novel a 5 out of 5. You won’t be disappointed.

The mystery was mystifying and believable. The hero was heartwrenching. The other character were All selfish, self absorbed and mean......including the heroine. I really did Not see why the hero fell in love with her. As far as I could glean she wasn't at all lovable. I found it a challenge to finish the story because I was so totally fed up with our Berlin's selfishness and mean, Snotty attitude. The story and the mystery were well written but this book is really only a 3.5 in my opinion because dent and gall were the only characters you could invest in.

Eighteen years ago Bellamy Lyston Price was only 12 years old when she was involved in a family trauma from which she had never fully recovered. The day started with a Memorial Day party staged by her parents at a local park and ended in tragedy when a Tornado struck the park and her elder sister Susan was found dead under a fallen tree. The real tragedy was that Susan had been killed before the storm struck.

Denton Carter, Susan's boyfriend at the time of her death, had quarrelled with her that day. Despite being the most probable suspect he is cleared by the police. Another boy at the party who had been chasing Susan was charged and convicted. Bellamy suspects that the wrong person may have been found guilty of the murder.

Eighteen years on Bellamy writes a "fictional" novel based on the murder in an attempt to reopen the case and find the murderer. As her book becomes popular strange things happen and she realises that she has opened up things from the past that some people don't want exposed. Surprisingly Dent gets drawn into the action and helps Bellamy to uncover the truth.

This book shows why Sandra Brown is such a successful suspense novelist. The plot has many twists and turns and distractions and includes some enjoyable romantic tension between the Bellamy and Dent. The only things that become clear before the ending is who didn't murder Susan.

As usual I liked this book. However, I just was not feeling the attraction between Bellamy and Dent. I also didn't like their names, as Bellamy is a strange woman's name and Dent is even stranger. However the plot was interesting, with a real twist at the end. I was not expecting it!! Good book, I recommend it.

Great read. One thing Brown gets right - sexy male leads. They are strong without being jerks and funny without being crude. And the female characters are strong without being insufferable and unlikable. The story was thoroughly enjoyable although I did hurt for several characters. No spoilers, though. I recommend this so much.

Sexual abuse, miscarriage of justice and the damage it causes. This story is compelling but not enjoyable given the nature of the story. Believable characters, dialogue and twisting plot line.

Great description:
His father, the wizard of indifference, had taught him one thing: People could affect you only if you allowed them to.

Interesting thought regarding Stearman biplane:
“And boy, did I. It’s as fast and nimble as a waterfront whore.”

The repeated typo: A.k.a. is a continual distraction throughout the story.

I may re-read this story and always look forward to other works by this author.
