This book has a good plot. However, the characters are not developed very well. It jumps back and forth between current events and the past. Hard to follow at times and some of the story does not add up. The book has this big 'secret' that is constantly built up. After awhile you really just want them to spill it already. Finally when you get to the end and see what the big secret is.....well sad to say..it is what you have suspected through the whole book. A BIG LET DOWN at the end. Then the epilouge ties things into a neat little bow..the ending is a little to perfect. Would not recommend you waste your time on this book. Read the first few chapters and you will clearly see what the BIG SECRET is. Skip this one or at least buy it used.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I'm sad to say that I thought this book was AWFUL. It's the first of Fern Michaels' books that I've read, purchased because of the good reviews here, and will likely be the last. While the premise is good and the mystery interesting, the writing style is jumpy and disjointed and the plot hard to follow. The main characters lack chemistry and there seems to be no development of their relationship, they meet in one chapter and by the next it is understood that they are deeply involved somehow. I actually went back to check the copyright to see if this could be a re-release of some very early work of the author (which might explain the lack of finesse)!Was this review helpful?

Another great book from a great author! About Face is somewhat of a different style, yet this book kept me on the edge of my seat, and I like this refreshing style from a favorite author.Great characters, lots of suspense and a nice romance. Readers of Fern Michaels can expect another winner with About Face!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is fantastic...it has all the elements of a wonderful love story but at the same time is a compelling mystery ...it has characters that become so real to the reader. It grabs the reader on the very first page & hold them until the very last page...the setting of the book is described in picture perfect details & I liked that . this book is a keeper & the characters stay with you as friends.I feel as if I really know them. I loved this book !!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Casey Edwards spent the last decade as a resident of a mental institution, but recently was released to wander Sweetwater, Georgia. Casey¿s memory before her confinement is limited, but she knows her former home is Swan House. She begins to walk home, but Dr. Blake Hunter sees her hiking and gives her a lift to the house where her mother Evie lives with John Worthington............................... However, Casey¿s return is not celebrated. In Sweetwater, the townsfolk treat her with disdain, that is those whom even react towards her, because everyone believes she is a fratricide killer. At home, she is treated like an intruder. Someone wants her dead before she recalls all she lost. Only Blake supports her, but is he and his love enough to keep her safe as she unravels the elusive past?............................... Though loaded with suspense and starring a heroine that readers will empathize with, the actions of the secondary characters (especially mommy dearest) seem too malevolent to believe. Their cartoon-like evil essence takes away from the tale. Still, the audience will like the lead couple and root for them to succeed as an entry against overwhelming odds. Fern Michaels provides a terse romantic suspense that her fans will enjoy....................... Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
