    Found Sandra Brown’s work sometime during high school and have loved reading her stuff ever since, when I first read Mirror Image which has kept me hooked ever since.

    She has so many great novels to choose from, and it is hard to even pick one single favorite. The Alibi, Deadline, Where There is Smoke, and Envy would have to be up at the top.

    Slow Heat in Heaven is another great one for when you just want to get lost in a steamy romantic thriller that hooks you quickly and makes it seem like you’re there in Heaven, LA.

    Brown published her first book in 1981. The latest on her book list was published in 2021. That’s forty years of writing and she continues to put out high quality thrillers and romantic suspense. Her output is honestly amazing.

    If you’re looking for one of her underrated books, check out Smoke Screen. It starts with a newswoman waking up in bed with a detective and he’s dead. If that doesn’t hook you, you don’t like books!

    I love authors like Sandra Brown, that have refused to bow to the limitations of genre labels. I suppose she writes suspenseful romance (romantic suspense?). But her books have a little bit of everything, from mystery to action and a decent amount of sex.

    Sandra reeled me in after I learned that she had written ‘French Silk.’ The book (and movie adaptation) sounded so familiar that I had to check Sandra out. To this day, I still don’t know what ‘French Silk’ is and whether or not I watched/read it. And it doesn’t really matter.

    I am slowly making my way through all the books on this list. At some point, I will get to it.

    Can’t wait for her latest novel, Out of Nowhere. Brown never fails to deliver an excellent book with great characters and a good story.

    Started with her writing under Erin St. Claire on Harlequin and never stopped. She is one of a small handful that I will pre-order. Her writing is always crisp and clear.
