    DON'T DO IT...Written 15 Years ago.

    I am a great fan of Suzanne Brockmann.I have read all of the Troubleshooters books, several of them multiple times. I love the characters & lives that come alive for me in her stories. The banter between them and the storyline always keep me hooked. I have even turned to audio books a lot of the time so I don't have to wait to actually read the print. I can have the story while I do chores, drive, etc.
    SOOO I grabbed this book only because of her name on the cover. It took only several pages before I knew I should have checked it out more closely. The copyright for both stories is 1995. It is definitely from early in her publishing career. The first story "Not Without Risk" is 277 pgs long. I gave it til pg 118 before I had to put it down. I was pushing myself to read it. I plan to return the book today. The characters, their internal/actual dialog, & the plot were uninteresting & superficial. No development of any aspect to actually draw me into either the lives of the characters or the storyline. It wasn't even FLUFF reading. I was very disappointed.I hate when publishers try to fool us into thinking we're getting somethine new when they slap a new cover/title on old material. At least my bookstore will refund my money. The disappointment though is mine to keep.

    So So

    I was not really impressed by this book which was a shame since I am a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann and have read many of her novels and always loved them.

    could be better

    I love all the other books from the author, but this one needed more. There was too much on the characters thinking the same thing over and over. There needed to be more to the stories.

    OK if you skim

    Not Without Risk is trite but OK (skip over the repetitive parts). A Man to Die For is pretty dumb - the main man's character is much more likeable in Not Without Risk - and the main woman is really stupid despite possessing a lot of intelligence. Overall, plan to skim this book and enjoy it just for what it's worth. Not one of Brockmann's crowning achievements, but it's great for when you are stressed out and just need to relax with a dose of unreality.

    SUZANNE BROCKMANN ALWAYS WRITES A GOOD STORY

    I really enjoy all of Suzanne Brockman's books I look for total entertainment, not the deeper meaning. and she pulls it off.

    I purchase every Brockmann. Love her books.

    One Brockmann is not enough. When they come two page tyurners between the covers it's going to be a dou ble fun read.
