basic escapism ( )

It never changes with Sandra Brown - you are hooked by the first chapter or or two of any novel she writes, then you can barely put then book down until completion. It's really impossible to guess who the bad guy is - ever, because when it comes to writing intrigue, Ms. Brown just about holds the patent.

WHITE HOT is the story of one man's success in owning a manufacturing company that is the livelihood of a town called Destiny, Louisiana. All of the men in the story seem nefarious in one way or another. When Danny Hoyle is dead of apparent suicide, Sayre Holye Lynch - living in San Francisco - returns home for the first time in a decade. Her plans to leave immediately after the funeral services are derailed as quite a few things are not quite right, and Sayre's not leaving without answers. One man that could give her at least some insight is her enemy to the best of her knowledge, but that does not stop the passionate feelings that begin to grow between the two. Pick up (or download) a copy of WHITE HOT and you will be kept on your toes literally to the very end. ( )

White Hot
3.5 Stars

A solid romantic suspense.

While the plot is entertaining, it is not extraordinary and the supposedly surprising twist is actually predictable.

The characters are quite stereotypical: the patriarch, the prodigal daughter, the favorite son, the corrupt layer, the town bad boy, etc.

Overall, the romance is better than the mystery. ( )

mystery @ Hoyle family — controlling father — death of her brother — okay

When she hears that her younger brother Danny has committed suicide, Sayre Lynch relents from her vow never to return to Destiny, the small Louisiana town in which she grew up. She plans to leave immediately after the funeral, but instead soon finds herself drawn into the web cast by Huff Hoyle, her controlling and tyrannical father, the man who owns the town's sole industry, an iron foundry, and in effect runs the lives of everyone who lives there.As she feared, Sayre learns that nothing has changed. Her father and older brother, Chris, are as devious as ever, and now they have a new partner-in-crime, a canny and disarming lawyer named Beck Merchant, who appears to be their equal in corruption.

A very good murder mystery, set in a truly dysfunctional family in the swamplands of Louisiana. The growing up life of the main character, Sayre, must have been horrible indeed was my frequent thought, especially as the character of her brother Chris was pulled and woven in the plot. I am very impressed by the character development, especially that of the patriarch, Huff Hoyle. Sandra Brown does a very good job with showing how some brutes are made, not born, and how the anger of a single act can have repercussions through the decades. ( )
