Suspicion (Private Series #10) by Kate Brian

Forbidden fruit...

Reed, Noelle, and former Billings Girls Kiran and Taylor have been living it up on St. Barths over winter break. The tropical sun has melted away all the tensions of last semester, and for the first time in months, Reed is happy. She's got her best friends by her side, she has a palatial suite with an ocean view, and she's landed Upton, the most sought-after guy on the island.

Reed is falling in love.

But dating Upton makes Reed St. Barths' highest-profile guest -- and not in a good way. Upton has a dark past, and he's broken a lot of hearts. One of his exes still wants him. And she'll do whatever it takes to get Reed out of the picture.

i luv these books! first i would like to say kate brian is not the authors real name. its kieran scott. i found out looking up suspicion. two- i think taylor pushed her off. u may think thats dumb but ive got reasoning. she blond and its the last person youll ever think of. maybe she liked upton and sawyer or she liked upton,reed took him so she liked sawyer but sawyer gave her the necklace. i dont think its sawyer i like him and poppy is too obvious. i want josh and reed to get back together cus i dont really like ivy for sum reason. alot of reviewers are going around saying that upton had an affair with mrs ryan. ew gross but that probably could be true with all of the twists. u no every 4 books is like a section so the next book would probably be about reed trying to find her killer. the fourth book would be the resolution or sum ppl are saying that there are only two books left which i hope not! srry to talk my head off but im really a big fan! 1 hour later: okay new theory. maybe it was daniel. they did say there was a musky smell and he could have been getting back at reed for his sister or for ariana which was his ex-girlfriend, now somewhat an ex-convict in a new a-list school. sorry i read privilege too 1 minute later: okay maybe its mrs ryan. i mean its not hard to guess. she hates reed and what happened just a few minutes earlier (not going to type) really got that woman mad. whoo! 30 seconds later: okay i have a strong feeling towards daniel. the bird seed probably killed the bird with poison...probably from the poisonous trees! oh new discovery! Two minutes later: okay i really think its daniel. you know daniel is in love with poppy and would kill for her. so daniel is violent too. so my final answer is daniel ryan. I LOVE THESE BOOKS! 1 hour and 30 minutes later: It was definitely Taylor scratch out daniel. Taylor's blond. shes jealous from the upton game. she was so obsessed she stalked reed. she saw sawyer give reed the necklace. she was sweating at the party on the boat. she took what she knew from ariana and pushed reed off. daniel was auburn. so i now go wit Taylor Bell. I LOVE THESE BOOKS!

Believe it or not, SUSPICION is the tenth novel in Kate Brian's PRIVATE series. And SUSPICION picks up where PARADISE LOST ended. The girls are still holidaying on St. Barths. The story begins with Reed stranded in the water. She's positive someone purposely pushed her off the Ryans' boat with the hopes that Reed would drown. Reed rips off her dress as it was dragging her down. She tries to remain calm in the water, but freaks out when something floats over her feet. Just when she's about to go under the final time, she is rescued. With such a heart-pounding start to the novel, the tension never lets up until the end of the book. Poor Reed can't seem to catch a break. How many people are going to try to kill her? After her rescue, she's visited by island cops at the hospital, but neither wants to believe that she was intentionally pushed. Even her friends are doubtful that someone they know on the boat would want Reed dead. All Reed wants to do is go home to Croton. But Noelle convinces Reed to stay one more day so she doesn't have to fly commercial. Mrs. Lange is currently using their private jet, but will be back on the island in a day. Reed agrees, but she may soon regret that decision. Reed spends her remaining time quietly with Noelle and Upton. She doesn't want to do much else, but then Kiran decides that a New Year's Eve party is in order, and that Sawyer should be celebrated as the hero he was for rescuing Reed out of the water. Reed agrees Sawyer should be the center of attention and the party is held on a private island. Upton and Reed have their own private plans for after the party. Upton leaves early and charters a private boat to bring Reed back to the main island once he's ready. But as is now typical with Reed, the employees on the boat aren't what they seem and have kidnapping plans in mind. The reader will definitely feel sorry for all the misfortunes that befall Reed Brennan. Her friends don't want to really believe that someone they've grown up with could be behind all the "accidents" that Reed has experienced on her winter break on St. Barths. But there are far too many of them occurring. Pick up SUSPICION to find out how Reed manages to survive even more hardships. The book ends with another bang as is expected from Ms. Brian. It will leave you anxious for SCANDAL, which isn't due out until March 2010!

has anyone else noticed that on the "Beautiful Disaster" and "Suspicion" covers, that the center girl on "suspicion" and, well, the cover girl on beautiful disaster are wearing the same bracelet?! could it be...?! i cannot wait for suspicion. I've already read the 2 teasers (one is posted on kate/kieran's myspace, the other on simon&schuster), and have preordered it! Since it's already available on (so I've heard...), hopefully it'll be shipped out soon!

I think its someone you will never expect. Someone who seems like a good person. So i think it is Sawyer. Think about it, he has no albi (he was at the casino party however so was everyone else other people suspect). He might have a motive... I believe his sister's death has to do with reed. This is a little out there but i think Melissa -the girl ariana killed because she was in ariana and thomas's way- was sawyers sister. Ok its a crazy theory but it could be what happened! PS i love kirean scott aka kate brian and her writing!!!!

Ok, so i have yet to read suspicion but i've read the first two chapters from the features tab. I think that sawyer and reed should be together and not upton cuz upton left her and that's why reed got pushed...this is the only series that has had not four, not eight, but TEN books in the series with a prequel!!! and it doesn't lag on and on, it's still interesting!!! Paradise lost had me over the edge and i can't wait to get my hands on suspicion!!!

I loved SUSPICION!!!! it was so dramatic and witty. I CANNOT wait for the next one to come out. i hate waiting so long for the books, but its completely worth it. i have been reading the series since it first came out and i am completely hooked. the only problem is i HATE the web show and i feel as if its ruining the books. the actors are so wrong for the characters and its just horrible. Also the book was really short and MARCH IS SOO FAR AWAY!!!

okay so i am totally in love with the private series. cant wait for this book to come outt. okay so my first thoughts when i read the first chapters(which i found kate's myspace was JOSH! he came back. But then again it could bee Sawyer or ever Upton(not really though).

I think that people are going ot think that someone tried to kill reed out of jelousy becasue of Upton. I think that it was Poppy or one of the other girls who were ealous and had threatened reed. I don't know who saved Reed but im guessing it was Sawyer or Josh who ight have come back to see her. I can't wait and if u go to Kate Brian's myspace you can get the first chapter of suspicion!!!

I don't think Taylor did it. She doesn't have the guts. Number one on my list is Mrs. Ryan. Then Daniel. The whole Ryan family has anger manegement issues. Mrs Ryan because she is having a secret affair with Upton, and Daniel because of the Ariana fiasco. When Reed's jetski crashed, the last person who touched it was probably Daniel because it was his, and he had one to spare so he tampred with it before Reed rode it.

Reeds island experience was not that realistic. I mean after three days with no water, you get really sick and possibly die. Also this book is boring and i ended up skipping to the end of it.
