    1. Another great AK read, though it did drag a little in the first 20 chapters or so, and the initial reason for the story (the concern for the well-being of a little boy) got on a little too long. Once that “connection” was made, it would’ve been better to go on to the romantic suspense part of the story, instead of the continued psychoanalysis of the kid, who, in my opinion, was just a tad too spoiled and resenting not being at the center of attention anymore.Okay, let’s thrust that issue [...]

    2. Julia Talbot has noticed the sudden change in one of her pupil's behavior. Little Brian Stratford is completely different from the whirlwind boy she knows and loves. He's withdrawn, quiet, and yes, a little depressed, and Julia knows it has something to do with his home life. Especially now, that his father, the mayor, is running for state senator.Julia is right, but even she doesn't know the extent of trouble, that's plaguing the Stratford family. And Brian's uncle, venture capitalist, Connor S [...]

    3. I got this audiobook for a couple of dollars at a used book sale. It's actually a pretty good story. I appreciated the fact that it was realistic in the way that information was passed on freely and didn't have that soap opera hesitation of having to see someone in person or for some other reason information was delayed. The characters picked up the phone and called, maybe missing each other but did connect to share what they had learned. It did go soap opera/Harlequin novel in the end, but anyt [...]

    4. I'm not sure how I acquired this book, but it wasn't something that I purchased. The plot is rather tenuous, and it is a romance novel. It did somewhat pick up towards the end, which is why I have given it 3 stars.

    5. This book is one of Andrea Kane's early romantic suspense novels. I had read several of her historical romances and have been enjoying her more recent rom/sus ones and wanted to check this one out. It is very good. It is long--448 pages but moves at a steady pace throughout. The last 100 pages move very quickly.Conner Stratford and Julia Talbot are featured in this story. They fall very quickly for each other but face several obstacles to a happy ending. Julia teaches second grade and has Conner [...]

    6. Talk about a dedicated teacher! Our heroine is calling home to parents as soon as little Brian shows just a little bit of depression. And she's willing to argue with the uncle about it. The romance aspect of this is pretty good too - lot of chemistry between these two but I don't like how he starts out simply trying to distract her feels like he approaches it dishonestly. And she sees it that way too when she finds out, but eventually things get worked out as they always must.

    7. I couldn't put the book down. Fast-paced, with lots of twists and turns, suspects and romance, this book has it all.A politically aspiring mayor is being blackmailed into offering a corrupt business man a parking lot contract. His family is threatened, his son, Brian, ultimatley kidnapped.His uncle, Connor, and teacher, Julia, try to help Brian in there own ways. Eventually romance develops between the two.This book will keep you guessing until the end.

    8. I am nor reading this book. The computer added it by mistake and I can not delete it. I was trying to add a different book Please remove from my list I do not plan to ever read it and I am not happy

    9. Read about 300 pages and could not finish, the entire premise was so weak. It seemed very circular with repeated information over and over until I was so sick of the obsession with Brian and analyzing of his mood.

    10. I would give the first 25 chapters of this book a 2 and the rest of the book a 4. That would put my rating around a 2.67, but that's not an option. The book could have gotten a 4 if the first 26 chapters had been about half as long.

    11. Teacher Julia Talbot becomes concerned when the mayor's son Brian, her favorite second-grader, becomes increasingly anxious and withdrawn, but her attempts to find out what is bothering the child lead her into a dangerous web of intrigue that threatens both his life and her own.

    12. This was definitely not a book for me. My family and I did read it to it's entirety. it's not bad but, wanted more than what was delivered by Andrea Kane. There's possibly great potential in her. I look forward to trying another novel from her in the future.

    13. I made it to page 55 before giving up on this one. I found that I didn't care for the main family who the trouble it looks revolves around. Connor, the uncle, just seems like bastard and the dad uncaring, while the mom hides her head in the sand. This one just isn't for me.

    14. It picked up at chapter 14. This is not one of the better books. And the Brady Bunch ending was a let down, I don't much like easy ending. A character had a name spelling dilemma through out the book.

    15. Not great literature, but sure shows how difficult it is to maintain any sort of private life while running for political office.

    16. the family drama is well written. the characters are nicely drawn and the suspense is there. lots is going on. I liked it. even with the “old“ feel of outdated technology.
