Deadline by Sandra Brown

Dawson Scott is a well-respected journalist recently returned from Afghanistan. Haunted by everything he experienced, he's privately suffering from battle fatigue which is a threat to every aspect of his life. But then he gets a call from a source within the FBI. A new development has come to light in a story that began 40 years ago. It could be the BIG story of Dawson's career one in which he has a vested interest.

Soon, Dawson is covering the disappearance and presumed murder of former Marine Jeremy Wesson, the biological son of the pair of terrorists who remain on the FBI's Most Wanted list. As Dawson delves into the story, he finds himself developing feelings for Wesson's ex-wife, Amelia, and her two young sons. But when Amelia's nanny turns up dead, the case takes a stunning new turn, with Dawson himself becoming a suspect. Haunted by his own demons, Dawson takes up the chase for the notorious outlaws. . .and the secret, startling truth about himself.

I've read all of Sandra Brown's romantic suspense novels and enjoy her twists in the plots. I liked that there were fewer sex scenes and that they were less explicit. Even knowing how ms. Brown can weave scandal into her novels, I didn't guess the ending, which makes a book rank high in my estimation. I gave the book four stars because it is hard for me to believe any human could be as evil as Carl or as pitiable as Fiona who gave up her children and her self-respect to be with Carl. Perhaps I'm naive...Thank Goodness. As expected, her main characters are strong and like able, with enough personal issues to make them believable. Ms. Brown plants many clues and red herrings in the book then as the story unwinds she unravels all of them. I hate it when an author leaves clues/red herrings dangling. Over all 'Deadline' is worthy of reading. Give it try, i'm sure you will like it.

Seriously one of her best books! I haven't been a huge fan of Sandra's in awhile. He last few books have been "okay", but nothing I have wanted to re-read.  This books is amazing! It took me a few chapters to really get hooked, but then it grabbed me by the throat and I couldn't stop reading until I hit the last page! Get it! You won't regret!

This book great!!! I have read Sandra Brown's books before so I expected this to be good read but this was even better then I expected. This book was great from the beginning to the end. Sandra Brown keeps you on a wild Roller Coaster ride through out the entire book.In the book itself you find journalist Dawson Scott’s recent return from a tour of investigative reporting in Afghanistan. After being entrenched with the military for so long and seeing the horrors of war, he is suffering from PTSD. He is a broken and lonely man. He ends up meeting and caring for a family that he is to afraid to let into his life, Will he be able to refuse to help them? Will he be able to deny his attraction to the beautiful Amelia? Deadline is another great dramatic read from Sandra Brown. you will not be disappointed in this book.

Well. This has cemented it. I now have a book crush on Sandra Brown. This is THE best book from her yet. I absolutely loved it. I have read sooo many books that I can pick out most "surprises" or twists and turns but I was totally thrown for a loop!! There were so many twisties that my head was spinning. The depth that Dawson Scott was written with was just ... character development genius. I don't know that Brown has ever delved that deep into a character before. Now, this could be because I adored the character of Dawson Scott. But the reason I adored him was because he was almost real to me. I also really connected with the way that Amelia's boys were written. Most of the time, the quarrels and conversations really reminded me of our two boys. It brought a smile to my face to see such insignificant characters given as much author love as the main ones. Usually I have more stuff to pick apart but Brown has been at this for so long that she's got it down to a science. She probably writes in her sleep. Ugh. I wish I had something to pick apart so I could use one of my weird analogies that I've grown to love but alas, I've got nothing. Great book ... pick it up if you like romantic suspense!

It was a great read, one of her best. My husband even read it, might have skipped the last of Chapter 29 with all the love parts (that I enjoyed) and then on to Chapter 30 and Epilogue. We both enjoyed and was nice to have a book we both read and could talk about.

Like all Sandra Brown's book the attraction of the two main characters take front and center. This book starts out with a great prelude in introduce the back drop of the book and continues to thread more information and bits and pieces via back flash which adds to the story. This twisted and unexpected ending really ends the book with a bang. Sandra fans will enjoy this page turner and not want to put it down till the en.
