Throwback Thursday: Charade by Sandra Brown

Author: Sandra Brown
First published in 1995 by Hachette Books

A medical miracle gives TV personality Cat Delaney more than a new heart. With her second chance at life Cat trades Hollywood for San Antonio, where she hosts a TV show for children with special needs. Here she meets Alex Pierce, an ex-cop turned crime writer-and the first man to see her as a woman since her surgery. But her new world turns sinister when fatal "accidents" begin killing other heart recipients, and a mysterious stalker starts shadowing her every move. Soon Cat realizes Alex may-or may not-be her most important ally and that her new heart comes at a terrible price: a tangled web of secrets and someone determined to take her life.

This was a great book!  Just when I thought I had the whole story figured out, Ms. Brown threw another curve my way.  I have to admit that the beginning as a bit confusing.  The story begins by hopping around to a few different stories and they seem be disconnected.  I always try to trust in the author and I was glad I did.  Stick with it because it all makes sense in the end.  

I liked Cat's character.  She is a survivor and turns her sucess into something for the good.  I loved her and Alex together.  Their attraction was instant and steamy from the start.  I loved Alex.  He is so the typical writer and is the first person to like Cat for who she is, not because she is a star or a transplantee.  

I listened to the audiobook and I loved the narrator! This one will keep you guessing.  Try it out!
