Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Stellar Stella

The course of love never ran smooth, but for the heroine of Stella Cameron's newest romantic thriller, it runs deep, down twisting corridors of memory. Key West, her latest, is sure to be one of the bestsellers of autumn -- and a perfect escape into suspense for all of us.

Author Stella Cameron got her start writing historical romances set in Regency England, and with her wonderfully drawn characters and highly evocative sense of place, she quickly built up a loyal following. With last year's release of French Quarter, Cameron made the leap from historical to contemporary and from romance to romantic suspense. Not surprisingly, her fan following made the leap right along with her and has been steadily increasing ever since. It's likely to make another geometric leap when readers get their hands on Key West.

As the title implies, the story takes place in Key West, and Cameron's trademark ability for bringing a place alive is well at work here -- if you've never been to Key West, you'll think you have by the time you finish the book. The story follows the plight of Sonnie Keith Giacano, who starts out as a five-months-pregnant tennis widow who hasn't heard from her philandering, on-the-circuit husband, Frank, in two months. When he does call, it triggers a series of tragic events that will change Frank and Sonnie's lives forever.

Eight months later, Sonnie's memory of the exact events is muddled at best, and she keeps having disturbing flashbacks. She begins to suspect that she is either losing her mind or the events that occurred that fateful night were not as accidental as they seemed. Determined to find some answers, she hooks up with a former police detective named Chris Talon. Chris has his own memories from which to escape, and he's reluctant at first to help Sonnie unearth her past. But soon, both their lives will change in ways they had not imagined -- and the thrills are just beginning.

With Key West, Cameron utilizes all the best elements from her previous works and spices things up a notch. The end result is stellar Stella -- the best of her best and a perfect mix of passion, suspense, and action-packed story.

Ready for your vacation to Key West?

Romantic Times
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Steamy, atmospheric and fast-paced, Cameron's romantic suspense novel delivers on all fronts. Wealthy Key West doormat Sonnie Giacano can't remember exactly what happened eight months ago, the night her brash, tennis star husband, Frank, was apparently kidnapped, because she wrecked her car and miscarried her unborn child. Although Frank had just declared his intention to leave her, saying, "I do not find pregnant women sexy," the loss of her baby torments Sonnie. Emotionally scarred, she bartends at a local dive under the caring eyes of Roy Talon. Roy knows Sonnie's tragedy is tangled up with murderous deceptions, and, luckily for her, Roy's brother Chris is a disillusioned former NYPD police officer who retreated to Key West to escape his own nightmarish past. A reluctant Chris is dragged into investigating the case after Sonnie starts hearing voices singing a lullaby, "Hush little baby, don't you cry.... " When her husband's brother and her own sister show up on the island with a shrink in tow, it seems the family is conspiring to wangle control of Frank and Sonnie's considerable fortune. Whether the plot is to get Sonnie committed or killed, Chris fights for her life, now believing that Sonnie is both sane and the perfect woman for him. The mysterious voices persist as a fire at Sonnie's house reveals a body, hinting that Sonnie may be more unhinged than her new lover thinks she is. Cameron (French Quarter) makes Sonnie's sanity more questionable with every turn of the page, while depicting Chris's growing conviction that his emotions can't be denied. Subplots involving missing cad Frank, his Jag-driving look-alike brother and Sonnie's cruel sexpot sibling add strength to a solid plot. The elysian Key West setting is dramatized by the hurricane season's menace, but readers will most enjoy the good-guy/good-girl romance that blossoms amid an evil family's convoluted schemes.

Kirkus Reviews
Cameron, who moved from romance paperbacks to romantic-suspense hardcovers with French Quarter (1998), changes her setting from New Orleans to Key West to tell the story of young Sonnie Keith Giacano, a tennis widow married to ever-away star Frank Giacano. The self-centered Frank (babies bore him), now in his 12th year on the circuit (he usually wipes out early at Wimbledon), has been away for two months without a single call to Sonnie. She's in her fifth month of pregnancy when he phones her somewhat mysteriously, saying he'll be flying in. But when Frank's brother, Romano, says Frank has been kidnaped, perhaps by Italian terrorists, Sonnie apparently goes berserk (or actually has been set up for murder), drives into a wall, and suffers cuts and scarring, a miscarriage, and amnesia. She tries to regain her memory yet clearly suppresses something terrifying. Maybe a violent Key West hurricane will help jog her memory? She signs on ex-detective Chris Talon to find out whether she's a wife or a widow. Despite rather endless arguing between them, in large part because Sonnie feels she's lost her mind and can't be understood by anyone, the two grow cozy while trying to discover what happened to Frank, with a backdrop of evocatively depicted Key West haunts. Cameron keeps the suspense fairly high, but one feels the romance writer spinning and spinning out the scenes after the plot starts moving.

Read an Excerpt

"Hush little baby, don't you cry..."

Tropical wind in the night reminded her of times when she'd made the mistake of pretending to be happy, safe, although she'd known she was fooling herself.

That kind of wind slapped banana leaves against the jalousies and sent warm, frangipani-scented air across the skin. Lulled you--even in hurricane season. Mostly even the big storms never really hit, but eventually one did. Even if it was a long time coming, you could take one thing to the bank: another hurricane would hit Key West. And the less prepared you were, the more devastating the onslaught.

Sonnie Kieth Giacano's personal storm had arrived eight months ago, on just such a wild night. It had changed her forever. She hadn't expected what happened, and she'd almost snapped under the horror of it. But driven by her need to discover the truth she was convinced had been hidden from her, she'd started the long trail back from despondency. That trail had led her here again, to Key West and the place where everything she'd like to forget had taken place.

    Love the writing and the plot

    Sonnie and Chris are wonderful together. She goes through some dangerous times and he's an ex-cop who doesn't want to get involved, but just knowing Sonnie puts him on the run from danger, too. All the way through you want the bad people to be found and it's a cliff hanger through every page. The love story tears at you.

    Really enjoyed it

    From the start you know there is so much at stake in this book. You want to take Sonnie and do something to make it all work out yourself. That's why I just loved it when Chris was there and he's worldly, and has loads of guts--and he can't stop himself from going to Sonnie's aid. It was really nice that although there's so much tension, some of the things people say make you laugh.

    A Guilty Pleasure

    I read Cameron's novel in two great afternoons at the beach. It brought back the feeling of the Keys. Buy it! And while you're at it, another guilty pleasure is 'Key West: A Story Sequence' by Jon Michael Miller. These stories are as tangy as Key lime pie. Its characters will keep you amused as you wait in airports, lie on the beach, and lounge by the pool. I give it five stars also, for capturing the flavor of my favorite place, Key West. These two books are zesty companions!

    Not Very Believable

    I'm a new Stella Cameron reader and liked the few books I've read. However, this one was a chore to get through. Sonnie Giacano is a wimpy, winey, 'heroine' who is the target of a fantastic plot to have her put into an asylum. The plot is outlandish, the characters completely off the wall. The only thing that rates it two stars instead of one is Chris Talon and his brother Roy and Roy's life parner Bo. They, at least, are good solid fairly sensible characters who have a little sense.

    Interesting Romance

    This was my first bool by Stella Cameron, I am sure not the last! Eight monthes ago Sonnie's husband is supposedly abducted by terrists and she suffers from a horrible crash.Convinced that she is going crazy she has to find out what happened the last time she spoke to Frank. When she meets her boss Roy's brother Christian Talon who i s an ex-NYPD cop things get alittle toasty.Frist he does not want to help the fragil Sonnie but the more she pushes the more he is drug into her dagerous world. When I first started reading this book I was convinced she was probably nuts but the more I read I was convinced her half sister Billy and brother in-law Ramono had something to do with it. I couldn't put it down.I recommend this book to anyone who loves dangerous romance novels.

    AN INTERESTING STORY

    I was not very hooked on the plot that Sonnies relatives were trying to make her crazy to take her money, but Chris Talon makes an interesting twist to it. It shows how far you're willing to go for love. Definetly one you will not want to put down.

    An excellent romantic suspense!

    I couldn't put it down. Stella Cameron's one of my favorite authors. And with this story, she proved me right. Her writing could enhance her readers' minds by making every details in the story seemed real. The characters and the plot were intriguing with a lot of twists and turns. Don't missed this one.
