“Tough Customer” by Sandra Brown

“Tough Customer” (Simon & Schuster, 2010)  is a pleasant and reliable romantic thriller from Sandra Brown.  If you are a fan of hers, you will enjoy this one very much.

Dodge Hanley is a gruff former cop turned private investigator who receives a call from the love of his life, Carolyn King, whom he has not seen for thirty years, asking for his help. A deranged stalker is trying to kill their daughter, Berry, whom he has also never met. Reluctantly he feels compelled to assist, even though this necessitates dredging up old feelings of guilt and passion that he has tried to put behind himt.   He partners up with local deputy sheriff  Ski Nyland  to chase after this killer who is leaving a trail of corpses in his wake.

The author maintains a good balance between the action and suspense and the romantic parts of the story, so it should be satisfying to fans of both types of plot.  There is, of course, a twist at the end, but I must admit, although I knew one must be coming, I hadn’t quite figured it out until shortly before it was revealed.

All in all, a very good effort from this author.

P.S.   I am not crazy about her website which requires loading a bunch of music and graphics for which I have little patience.  Maybe I need a faster computer!
