REVIEW: Rainwater

Title: Rainwater
Author: Sandra Brown
Finished: January 9, 2011
Pages: 247
Published: 2009
Format: First Edition

I’m playing catch up with my Sandra Brown books and was excited for this one specifically since it’s been awhile since she’s written a romance, plus this was so different from her other stories that it was like getting to know her all over again.

Rainwater is the story a woman running a boarding house, taking care of her disabled son and trying to survive in a time when women weren’t strong enough to do a mans work.

The story was so captivating and I kept wanting more, even at the end. Brown did an amazing job creating a forbidden world that the reader would fall in love with along with the characters.

I have been waiting to get to this book since the day it was released and I’m so glad to have finished it.

When a brutal and unexpected murder takes place in an elevator, no one is above suspicion in the Wheeler family, most of all the nephew of the deceased who makes no qualms about wanting the family fortune without having to work for it.

Julie Rutledge finds herself in the midst of all the chaos of the wheeler family and under suspicion as well as she was with Paul when he died. The only person who can’t be blamed for the death is the attorney who is hired by the Wheeler Family to make sure their best interests are represented.

Derek Mitchell finds himself at a crossroads when his professional and personal judgment is compromised and he is unable to represent anyone without casting doubt and suspicion at every turn.

I loved this mystery and can’t wait to read her other most recent books.

Another mystery, another city. In this new book, a reporter and a former fire fighter are thrown together by life threatening circumstances. Britt Shelley was a rising star, until she woke up next to the naked and dead body of a former fling. Now she’s accused of murder, and the only person who can save her is Raley Gannon, who experienced the same exact thing, five years prior.

Together, the two go on the run to save their lives and try and find out how their situations, three mysterious deaths and a police station fire are all attached.

Very entertaining, keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen, not trusting anyone, and thoroughly surprised in they last moments.
