Publisher's Summary

A medical miracle gave TV personality Cat Delaney more than a new heart. It gave her a second chance at life. After leaving Hollywood to host a San Antonio TV show spotlighting children with special needs, Cat fights to gain respect as a newscaster. She meets Alex Pierce, an ex-cop turned crime writer, who regards her as a woman, not as a heart patient. When fatal “accidents” begin killing the other heart recipients, Alex may – or may not – be her most important ally.
With her new world turning sinister and a mysterious stalker shadowing her every move, Cat is caught in a dark maze of betrayal and secrets…and perhaps sees too late the mask hiding a killer’s face.

Keeps you guessing to the very end.

Many books you can figure out the killer in the very beginning but this book had many twist and turns that were very unexpected. Loved it.

Not Sandra Browns best work.

I am disappointed. This is the first S.B. book that I not only figured out who the bad guy was halfway through but I also couldn't get into the story. I couldn't bond with the characters as I normally could. This book I will definitely be returning. Awful!!! Natalie Ross who narrates the book did a phenomenal job like always. She was the only highlight of a book I never got into. The only reason I finished the book was to see if I had pegged the bad guy correctly. Cat was by far the worst SB heroine out of all her books. Horrible book. Save your credit.

Completely ruined by the ending

What did you like best about Charade? What did you like least?

The narration was brilliant - the best ever. Really brought the book to life. This was a great story totally destroyed, for me, by the final chapters

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was irritated at the ending. The whole romance and plot was ruined for me. Difficult to say why without spoiling the plot. I think the Hero was fixated with his dead love obsessively and never got over her. His reasons for going after the heroine, and the way he did it - which was only really revealed in the last chapters, was just icky. And the neat tidying up of the "who got whose heart" storyline, by inserting another character in the final pages was just silly and an insult to the reader who had spent the entire book trying to figure out the puzzle.

Was Charade worth the listening time?

I really enjoyed listening to this book - until the final chapters. But the ending leaves a bitter taste and I will happily delete from my library.

Any additional comments?

I actually initially filled out my rating for this book at 4 stars for the story and overall (I almost never give 5 stars). This was because I was almost at the end and was enjoying it so much. Then I finished those final chapters and downgraded to one star - I was so angry at the way it ended!
