Reviews

Interior designer Sayre Lynch vowed never to return to her hometown of Destiny, LA, yet she finds herself on a plane headed there after learning about her little brother Danny's suicide. Wanting nothing to do with her ruthless family, she plans on attending the funeral only. But Sayre stays when the new deputy sheriff tells her Danny was murdered, perhaps by Chris, his own brother. Sayre also learns about past family crimes, gets involved with a labor dispute at the family-owned foundry, confronts her father for meddling in her affairs, and finds herself attracted to Beck Merchant, the family lawyer/lackey. Brown's (Hello, Darkness) latest plods along at times but is helped by its human, realistic characters and exciting ending. This should be a popular late-summer public library choice. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/04.]-Samantha J. Gust, Niagara Univ. Lib., NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

White-hot labor disputes, family conflict, murder and romance are ablaze in bestselling Brown's latest romantic thriller (after Hello, Darkness), when Sayre Lynch returns to Destiny, La., for her brother Danny's funeral. Estranged from her family for 10 years, Sayre arrives in town believing Danny committed suicide, but suspects otherwise after a surprise encounter at the cemetery and a disquieting interview with the sheriff's deputy. The Bayou-born firebrand now San Francisco interior decorator stays to investigate her brother's last days, confronting her father, Huff Hoyle, the powerful owner of the foundry that provides most of the town's jobs and all its corruption; defying her brother Chris, Huff's heir apparent and OSHA's worst nightmare; and becoming the first woman on the floor of the hellish factory that fuels the family fortune. At every turn, Sayre crosses paths with Huff's handsome lawyer henchman, Beck Merchant, irresistible although he represents everything she despises. The steamy pair cannot escape each other or their conclusions about Hoyle Enterprises. Brown makes up in pace and intensity what she lacks in prose style, guaranteeing readers a brain vacation in print, much like watching a favorite movie: an exciting yet familiar experience, the satisfactory resolution never in doubt.
