Deadline by Sandra Brown

Dawson Scott is a reporter that just returned from Afghanistan. He has come home with some emotional issues and despises his boss. This has caused him problems with his job. He gets a call from a family friend and FBI agent. He is informed about the murder trial of former marine Jeremy Wesson. This is a way for Dawson to get out of town and away from his boss, so he heads down to Savannah to observe the trial. Once down there, he sees Jeremy’s ex-wife, Amelia, and knows that his life is changed forever. He feels an emotional attachment to Amelia but this attachment may cost them both their lives and put them in danger.

I enjoyed this book. It kept me entertained throughout the story. I found each of the characters fascinating and I wanted to know more about them. The characters alone made me want to continue to read the book. The story line was fascinating and kept my interest as well. I was glad that there was action and suspense without the story dragging on or seeming too unrealistic. Sandra Brown does a fantastic job at writing intimate tension and also leaving some things to the imagination and not making the reader too uncomfortable.

Overall, I would recommend this book to my fellow mystery readers. It has a little romance, great characters, and an interesting story line. I feel that this is a book that I can re-read and enjoy again. I’m glad that Sandra Brown is continuing to write good books and I look forward to reading her next one.
