Mean Streak by Sandra Brown

April 15, 2016

Hello everyone.  It's been a while since I've read a book that I really enjoyed, and I'd love to share it with you.

I was at a friend's house recently, when I noticed that she had so many mystery books on her huge bookshelf.  I told her that I enjoy reading those type of books and she said that I could help myself to any of them I'd like to read.  Well, I spotted this book and I thought that it looked good.

Summary from Back of the Book:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown comes a heart-pounding story of survival that takes the age-old question "Does the end justify the means?" and turns it on its head.  

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina.  By the time her husband, Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold.  Literally.  Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.  While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory finds herself held captive by a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't tell her his name.  She's determined to escape from him and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.  As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the unnamed man is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead-and from heartbreak.

My Thoughts:

I was right!  I was so happy to have found a book to relax and enjoy reading.  I liked the book so much that I read it going on the train into the city, waiting in doctor's offices, during the afternoon, and reading right before bed time.

I enjoyed reading this fast paced book, that had so many twists and turns to the story.  What I liked about this book is that it was full of action, it has a little bit of drama, suspense, and romance mixed in.  This was an enjoyable, suspenseful, thriller and I thought I had the story all figured out at the end, but I was wrong.     

 It's the first time I've ever read a book by this author and I look forward to reading more of her mystery books.  

Have you read any good books lately?  If you do read this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.  See you all back here Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up.
