It’s very rare that a book keeps me up late reading and if it does then it’s definitely a good one. That was the case with Seeing Red by Sandra Brown. As the clock ticked closer to 12AM, I couldn’t stop until I knew everything.
Kerra Bailey is a TV journalist seeking an interview with Major Franklin Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, Major became a national icon when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors to safety after the bombing of a Dallas hotel. Kerra is willing to use any means necessary to get an exclusive with the Major–even if she must secure an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper. Still seething over his break with both the ATF and his father, Trapper wants no association with the bombing or the Major. Yet Kerra’s hints that there’s more to the story rouse Trapper’s interest despite himself. And when the interview ends with gun fire …
My one complaint about this book is no more than a small pet peeve of mine. The man and woman always end up falling for each other. It doesn’t quite ring true. Of course, I’ve never been in a situation even remotely close to this so it wouldn’t 😉 I love romance but just once I would like a mystery/suspense/thriller where the two running for their lives don’t have the hots for each other and fall into bed at the first opportunity.
Let’s forget that complaint and focus on the most important thing here – the suspense, which is off the charts! Seeing Red is full of eye popping, mouth hanging open reveals. I have a love/hate relationship with them. Here comes this big surprise and you must keep reading because that reveal couldn’t mean what you think it means. Could it? WOW! Page turning action all the way through. Never a dull moment. I thought I knew who was responsible, but I was wrong. Brown kept turning me in direction after direction. I love a surprise, last minute twist. And Brown delivers all of that and more in Seeing Red.
