Publisher's Summary

Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments.

Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, best-selling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But when an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal.

Moreover, Bellamy becomes the target of an unnamed assailant who either wants the truth about Susan's murder to remain unknown or, even more threatening, is determined to get vengeance for a man wrongfully accused and punished.

In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Dent Carter, Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend - and an original suspect in the murder case. Dent, with this and other stains on his past, is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's sealed memory to do it. But her safeguarded recollections - once unlocked - pose dangers that neither could foresee and put both their lives in peril.

As Bellamy delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Susan's slaying, she discovers disturbing elements of the crime which call into question the people she holds most dear. Haunted by partial memories, conflicted over her feelings for Dent, but determined to learn the truth, she won't stop until she reveals Susan's killer.

That is, unless Susan's killer strikes her first....

Sandra Brown - A Truly Awesome Talent

Low Pressure by Sandra Brown is another example of her awesome talent. Wow. I just marvel at her ability to set scenes and develop characters, and I love her use of the English language.
Stephen Lang is an amazing narrator. I had no trouble at all differentiating his voices between characters.
Another credit worthy novel…Enjoy!

Excellent!

After listening to, and really enjoying, "Envy" by Sandra Brown, I thought I would try this book. I reserve five stars for those books that I would definitely listen to again. This is one of those books. Both the story and the narrator kept me listening to the point where I hated to stop. I did not find the outcome to be predictable. I will definitely be looking for more of this author's work.

Kept us awake

My husband and I had to drive from Florida to New Jersey a few weeks ago, so I downloaded Low Pressure to listen to in the car. I wanted a story we both would be interested in, so I looked for a mystery. We listened to most of it on the way up and then finished it on the way back home. We stopped it and discussed the facts from time to time and made our predictions. It kept us awake and interested as we drove along I95 for hours and it was fun listening to it together!! I would read more of her books.

selling out

I have read many of Brown's books because the plots are intriguing any vary. Too many writers find one formula and the books are repetitive. Her use of the language and research into settings and details are informative. However, she misses being really good by having every hero a man whose eats, thinks, and dreams lustfully and tries to make him acceptable because he tells women they are only valuable to satisfied him then bye. Enter the heroine for whom he has real feelings and he "changes" wanting to prove this great love by having sex at every opportunity (no condums). I t has reached the point I fast forward through most of these - on the table, the floor, the car, the stairs, the fields, etc. They are well written, but
put too many of the sex encounters and it distracts the reader from the story and suspense. Having some is spice, too many and it is almost trash. But I still read some for the plot s.

Bad sex, creepy sexual politics

This book had a great mystery plot, but the romance was really offputting. I couldn’t find anything appealing in the male character, who seemed to have a juvenile sexuality and really few other characteristics. Rapey sex scenes that I found really offputting but was supposed to find appealing...yuck.

Good Story but sometimes annoying

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes I would recommend it. The story was good and you get a few ideas of the "who dunnit" but you don't have any solid evidence until the end. I found myself going back and forth between 3 characters.

Any additional comments?

The writing at some points got kind of cheesy and I thought Dent was overly persistent and cannot imagine many if any guys being that persistent.

An example of cheesy:
Dent: That looks good on you.
Bellamy: Your shirt?
Dent: No debauchery.

Boring

Book was so boring I didn’t finish. The characters were one-note and the storyline went nowhere.

Predictable

You can figure out the ending early on in the story. After that, the story was predictable. The rash of almost gotya's is too much to take. The sex scenes are too detailed in certain ways. Is that really how women think about sex? Or is she writing how she thinks men thinks about sex? Whatever it is, I didnt find it exciting, but kind of nauseating. The details about flying were incorrect.

Almost good

This book reads like earlier Brown , the only thing that brings it into the present is the mention of an IPad. it has the twists that she does so well, but predictable. Marginally worth your time cash credit.

Narrator cannot do women’s voices!

Story good. The ending was predictable. Not my favorite. I had a hard time understanding why someone so sexually repressed suddenly overcame 20 years of history because she found the “right guy”.
