Friday Finds [2]: Sandra Brown


So here we are again with another edition of Friday Finds, and wouldn’t you know it? It’s another batch of Sandra Brown’s books. I just really love this author! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of her writing. As you can tell from the covers, they look a little outdated. That’s because these books were published in 2007, 1998, and 1993 respectively. I’m going through a back list of all her works in the hopes that I’ll be able to have them all. That’s how much I love her!

I gave in and ordered The Witness from Amazon, but the other two I found at my go-to place when I’m looking for used books. So far, I have at least 13 unread books to keep me until her new one is out. I don’t know when that will be, to be honest. She just released a new one this year, so it looks like I have a long wait yet. Anyway, here are the summaries for each book:

The Witness

Publication Date: May 1st, 2007


Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn’t dare reveal her true identity or that of her amnesiac passenger to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.

The best public defender in Prosper, South Carolina, Kendall had stumbled upon the town’s chilling secret–and her marriage to one of the town’s most powerful men became a living hell. Her only hope for survival is to flee. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to save her child’s life…a reluctant witness who knows too much about an insidious evil…and a woman who knows too little about her own heart.

Fat Tuesday

Publication Date: June 1st, 1998


Burke Basile is a cop with nothing left to lose. Haunted by his partner’s death, his marriage and his career over, he focuses on his nemesis, Pinkie Duvall, a flamboyant attorney who helps killers evade justice. Burke’s shocking revenge centers around kidnapping Remy, the lawyer’s trophy wife. But Burke hasn’t planned on the electric attraction he’ll feel for this desperate woman, who rose from the slums of New Orleans to marry a man she can never love. Nor can he predict the fierce duel that will explode as the clock ticks toward midnight on Fat Tuesday, when all masks will be stripped away–and Burke must confront his own terrifying secret.

Where There’s Smoke

Publication Date: May 7th, 1993


No one knows why Dr. Lara Mallory came back home to Eden Pass, Texas to open up her medical practice after all these years. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. So when the iron-fisted matriarch of Tackett Oil uses every weapon in her arsenal to drive her out of town, Lara refuses to go quietly. Yet in this corruption-riddled town, nothing is as it seems. An explosive secret lurks beneath the surface, threatening Lara at every turn. Her unlikely ally: Key, the hell-raising youngest Tackett son. Thrown together, they’re on a dangerous quest to expose the one secret that can destroy the Tackett empire-and anyone who dares to challenge its power.

  • I’ve never read Sandra Brown, though I guess I shouldn’t be surprised
    because the Goodreads Choicr Awards has revealed that my reads have been purely in the Young Adult Category. I’ve read none of the books in the other categories!!! Must try Sandra soon.

    • I hear ya. I was like that a couple of years ago. Lately, I’ve becoming more disillusioned with YA, which is unfortunate, because I do have a lot of those books. :/

      Thanks for stopping by, Buona. ๐Ÿ™‚
