ONE SCREAM AWAY
Brady weaves a tight and gripping mystery in One Scream Away. The romance builds slowly and releases in an emotionally satisfying conclusion, which is both endearing and intense. While traditionally romantic suspense novels have relied on the hero saving the day and the grateful heroine falling into his arms, Brady's heroine isn't one to wait for a man to save her -- not that she'd mind if he did.
Neil is running from a past full of mistakes and death. No way does he want to get involved in a case linked to his past. Yet something about Beth offers redemption. If he can just get her to tell him why Chevy wants her dead and reveal her deepest secrets, he's sure he can save her and, in the process, save himself. (FOREVER, Jul., 464 pp., $6.99)
