    I know I must sound like a broken record right but I truly enjoy all of the Sandra Brown books that I have read so far Well, there was one that fell a little short for me but all the others have been such fantastic reads for me.The Alibi is one of my top three SB books This one takes us to Charlotte, South Carolina where we meet the sexy Hammond Cross and the stunning Alex Ladd With each book I have read, there is something a little extra that I end up loving Whether it is the location, the side characters or even the writing style based on the date of publication, I fall in love with something different The little extra I loved in this one was that things got shaking between the sheets within the first 20% That is almost unheard of in SB books And I have to say she can write some pretty sexy cabins scenes Hammond and Alex find each other at a local fair He was her knight in shining armor, saving her from some persistent men A ride on Ferris wheel, a walk on the pier and a flirtatious dance has Hammond wanting But Alex resist and leaves alone only to find herself in Hammonds arms a short time later Hammond is feeling things that he knows he shouldn t but he has to have her They head to Hammond s cabin and share a night of heated passion, indulging in their desires But when the morning comes, so does a sense of dread, when Hammond finds himself alone The allusive romantic connection between the two main characters created a different type of conspiracy that made the story even captivating The mystery and suspense in this one centers around the murder of Lute Pettijohn, who is a ruthless businessman and cheating husband Many would have reasons for wanting him dead but nothing appeared to be clear cut I had so many questions, a few theories but each time I thought I was getting somewhere, a twist was thrown in and I was back to wondering I didn t know who to trust, the good guys or the bad guysThe all around push and pull with this one was fantastic I loved the depth in character SB gave to Hammond and Alex Both were perfectly flawed which made them so appealing And it never fails that she serves up a plot that has been thickened by intriguing side character Rory, Steffi, Davee and Loretta all brought something different to this story Rory was a bit of an ass You ll struggle with liking him or not but I think in the end you will like him just like I did Steffi was your classic bitch with a capital B Davee was fabulous Her personality was so colorful And Loretta, she didn t have a huge part in the story but there was just something about her.Without doubt this one comes highly recommended I think I say this with every SB book review I write Even though the romance takes a back seat to the mystery and suspense, every sexy morsel you get is truly delicious You will love Hammond and Alex.

    5 STARSWow It s been a while since I ve read a Sandra Brown book And damn, have I missed them And l have to say that this is a difficult book to review, as I don t want to slip up and give anything away Trust me, with this one Just go in blind Don t read any reviews or even plot descriptions Just start reading Hammond CrossJust know that there are some incredibly juicy characters that await you The writing is fabulous as usual, and the intrigue undeniable Alex Ladd The dense air was redolent with the tantalizing aromas of cooking food junk food. Where up north are you from Why Because you are obviously ill bred and very rude But this one has a little treat yes, we get the sexy stuff right upfront No slow build on this baby How to describe that burst of clarity when one knows that his life has only just now begun, that everything that s happened before was rot compared to this, and that nothing will ever be the same again It takes place in Charleston, South Carolina A town that I ve visited many times And there is no better place for a murder mystery thriller romance if you ask me He had met her less than a week ago less than a week but he had never been sure of anything in his life Never before had he been so physically attracted to a woman He had never felt such a cerebral, spiritual, and emotional connection to anyone. I sort of predicted the outcome quite early, but the story kept me guessing until the end I always knew how I wanted it to end and lets just say that that s all I m going to say Don t be a Boy Scout LOL Loved the book Go read it

    I do enjoy a good romantic suspense with an engaging mystery and this one fit the bill Hammond Cross, a prosecutor with the Charleston DA s office finds himself stopping at a county fair en route to his cabin for the weekend Rescuing a beautiful women from some unwanted male admirers, he spend a few hours with her enjoying the treats of the fair and later running in to her on the way to the cabin, spends the night with her But in the morning she is gone and he never even got her name Returning to Charleston, he discovers that real estate magnate and cheating husband Lute Pettijohn was murdered in his hotel suite around the time Hammond was leaving for his cabin There are a number of suspects for Lute s death including his wife Davee and an unknown woman Even Hammond saw him briefly that evening This is my first book by this author but I very much enjoyed her characters and the twists in the plot that made it difficult to guess who committed the murder the perpetrator was a complete surprise Even the side characters were all rich and interesting Davee Lute s wife and Hammond s childhood friend , Rory Smilow, the police detective, Lorretta, the ex cop and recovering alcoholic who does undercover work for Hammond and Steffi, Hammond s colleague and ex lover and a total bitch and the town of Charleston was charming and an excellent location for a murder mystery.

    I really enjoyed this book, as I have enjoyed every Sandra Brown book I have read Out here, he wasn t a professional, or a colleague Or a son Tension, anger and the weight of responsibility began to melt off him The sense of freedom was heady It s on the suspense and mystery than on the romance but don t let that put you off There are still some hot scenes Dispensing with the frivolity, he kissed her meaningfully When at last he pulled away, her troubled expression alarmed him What Be careful, Hammond No one will know I was here She shook her head Not that Then what You may have to put me on trial for my life Please be careful that you don t make me fall in love with you first How could one, anyone, describe the instant when it all comes together How to describe that burst of clarity when one knows that his life has only just now begun, that everything that s happened before was rot compared to this and that nothing will ever be the same again He had never felt like this in his life For one horrifying moment, she feared she had gasped out loud, echoing her orgasm Even horrifying, she had unintentionally turned and was looking at Hammond His eyes were hot, as though he had been following her thoughts A blood vessel in his temple was distended and ticking

    After checking the book out by mistake, the plot once again was intriguing but looooooooooooooooooong The romance was silly.The culprit was well disguised A good few ideas for mystery authors.

    One night of escaping reality turns into a long, ominous nightmare for Prosecutor Hammond Cross A spur of the moment decision turned into a night of passion with a mysterious woman who was gone by dawn s light Hammond doesn t even know her name He will before long, and it just may be his downfall.Intriguing characters flaunt their way through The Alibi At first they didn t seem to have any connection to one another, leaving me wondering where it all was leading It soon becomes apparent as the i s are dotted and the t s are crossed, and their paths intertwine The characterizations are masterfully written each character is unique, working their own agenda I found myself fascinated with them all as the story played out, and I racked my brain trying to figure out their motives and connections to one another Hammond appears to be on a suicide mission as his actions belied his position, threatening to destroy his future My heart raced through the last few chapters and I may have screamed NO out loud a time or two Another Must Read by Sandra Brown

    I loved this slow building character driven murder mystery by the Queen of romantic suspense, Sandra Brown In fact for me the motives of each of the characters involved in the murder of shady business man Lute Pettijohn on both sides of the law and the way they intersected were of a page turner than finding out who actually did the murder It s become a bit of a goal when reading a Brown to try and tease out her multiple threads and work out whodunnit I didn t in this particular case but the way she crafts and manipulates her characters and the reader always ensures much reading enjoyment and again she didn t disappoint 4.5 stars.
