Book Review

From #1 New York Times best-selling 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, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion.

As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead - and from heartbreak.

Combining the nail-biting suspense and potent storytelling that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best loved authors, MEAN STREAK is a wildly compelling novel about love, deceit, and the choices we must make in order to survive.

    I’ve never read a book in my life that left me feeling like I did after this one. The endless amount of twists and turns kept making me grab for more pages. This book was well composed; so much so that I’m not sure I’ll be able to read another book anytime soon because it won’t measure up to this!

    This is the first book I’ve read by Sandra Brown. I loved it and will definitely be getting her others. The suspense was almost unbearable. My only beef is that half way through I felt like it kept repeating the same old lines as to questions of what happened in Virginia and who was the mystery man in the cabin that had Emory. I almost got to the point I didn’t care . It almost ruined the story. I was really interested about the book because it’s set in Nantahala, a place that’s about 20 minutes from me. I hate how people sometimes make it look like people from Nantahala are ignorant or even incestuous. There always has to be mention of a hunting dog. But Sandra Brown didn’t make it too bad. It’s so beat in the ground about the mention of Eric Roudolph here. I live in the town he is from and my hubby was a cop at the police department who caught him. But this book worked it in perfectly, even without mentioning his name. But I do want to point out, and I’m sure that’s where the author got her idea of making people from Nantahala ignorant and having coon dogs, it was the media that created this image. The newsmen told the people to get in their pickup trucks with guns and dogs. Of course, there are people who have hunting dogs and stuff, they are also working men. Not at all like they’re portrayed. But when the news crews came to Nantahala and Murphy, NC when Eric Roudolph was caught, they did get a guy who lived in town and is also a little off due to his parents being related, and they filmed him along with the picture they wanted to paint. Anyway, I’m getting away from the book. I have to say, this was one of the most suspenseful books I’ve read. The price is a little high and I’m not so sure about how the bad guy’s story lines up with the way it was told along the way. I was so flabbergasted at the end that I really need to read it again to get it in my head. I sort of suspected the culprit but not in the way it happened. Not the part I’m thinking. Oh shoot, I can’t say what I want because that would spoil it. Read it, you won’t regret it. And if you like audiobooks, you would love this narrator. I am so amazed at his talent.

    Somehow found myself in a romance novel. The teaser isn't anywhere near the actual plot. Pretty bad.

    I started to read this at 11am one night and then looked down and I was on page 300 and it was 1am. If I didn't have to work the next day I would have finished it that night. Awesome book, highly recommended and I will be telling all my friends/family to read this book. Time to look at other titles from Sandra Brown. If her other books are like this I will be losing a lot of sleep!
