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. 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.… (lisätietoja)

This review was originally posted on Once Upon a Chapter





Mean Streak by Sandra Brown was a fantastic break for me. It's been such a long time since I've read a romantic suspense and Mean Streak really brought it. I read this book during a busy time period for me. Work has been hectic for sure. It took me about 25% through the book to really get invested but once I was I couldn't put it down. This kind of surprised me because I've only read two other books by Brown and they fell flat for me. I wasn't sure what to expect and I think that worked to my advantage.

What I loved about Mean Streak by Sandra Brown is that I was constantly guessing. I didn't know what to think. For a romantic suspense or mystery that is the number two priority. I don't want to know who the bad guy is or what's hiding around the corner. I want to discover that as the characters discover it. That happened for me in this book. I really enjoyed having that because it takes a crafty writer to be able to do that for me.

If that was my second priority, what is my first? Characters. If I don't connect with the characters, I just do not enjoy the book. Unless of course I'm supposed to hate them and then I kinda love to hate them. Either way I didn't have a problem with that. I really enjoyed Emory's character. I enjoyed all of the characters. There were two that I hated but that was what was supposed to happen. I can't really go in to any more detail about the characters without giving the story away.

So far it sounds like this book should be a five star read but it wasn't. It lost a star for me when at the end a hot button topic was revealed. I don't really enjoy having those topics in my fiction. Reading for me is an escape so when the real world comes knocking in my escape I tend to get a little cranky. This was a minor problem for me. Brown's writing style, her characters, and the way she revealed it all to the reader is what made me really enjoy Mean Streak by Sandra Brown!

Although the book had its faults, the way it was written kept you wanting to continue reading. Emory is suppose to be such a smart dr. yet due to bring so involved in her work, she misses key facts of her personal life. Her husband fights with her, cheats on her with her coworker who pretends to be her BF, she falls immediately in love with her captor. Yet the way the info is presented kept this reader wanting to figure out more answers. Surprised to find the connection to the FBI. ( )

Marathonloper Emory Charbonneau verdwijnt tijdens een training in de bergen van North Carolina. Als haar man Jeff, boos na de zoveelste ruzie, veel te laat alarm slaat, is het spoor koud. Letterlijk: mist en zware sneeuwval isoleren de wildernis en maken een zoektocht onmogelijk.

Terwijl de politie Jeff als verdachte begint te zien, komt Emory met hoofdletsel bij in een blokhut. Haar redder beweert dat hij haar in de sneeuw heeft gevonden, maar weigert zijn naam te geven. Wie is deze mysterieuze vreemdeling? Waarom heeft hij haar hier gebracht? Is ze ontvoerd? Kan ze ontsnappen? Wil ze wel weg?

Oh man. Mean Streak is a sexy, heart pounding thriller with so many twists and turns it'll keep you on the edge of your seat. It's full of danger, drama and intrigue and not only does it have incredible main characters but a pretty great cast of secondary characters as well.

This is the first book I've read by Sandra Brown but it certainly won't be the last! I own Lethal already so I'm gonna have to read that soon. ( )
