Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments.
Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, bestselling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But when an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal.
Moreover, Bellamy becomes the target of an unnamed assailant who either wants the truth about Susan's murder to remain unknown or, even more threatening, is determined to get vengeance for a man wrongfully accused and punished.
In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Dent Carter, Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend -- and an original suspect in the murder case. Dent, with this and other stains on his past, is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's sealed memory to do it. But her safeguarded recollections -once unlocked-pose dangers that neither could foresee and puts both their lives in peril.
As Bellamy delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Susan's slaying, she discovers disturbing elements of the crime which call into question the people she holds most dear. Haunted by partial memories, conflicted over her feelings for Dent, but determined to learn the truth, she won't stop until she reveals Susan's killer.
That is, unless Susan's killer strikes her first...

Low Pressure is a highly entertaining, suspenseful novel that will having you guessing until the very end!
Sandra Brown has created a fantastic set of likable characters in this newest novel. Unpretentious rich girl Bellamy has repressed childhood memories of the day her sister was murdered. She's written a novel, Low Pressure, in an effort to bring those memories to the forefront and bring the suspicion she has that the wrong man was accused and found guilty of the murder. She teams up with her sister's then boyfriend, Dent, an airplane pilot and self-proclaimed bad boy, to solve the mystery that still surrounds her sister's death.
There are many twists and turns during Bellamy and Dent's investigation. Bellamy has to face some nasty truths about her sister and by digging up the past she's put both her and Dent's lives in danger from quite a few shady characters.
Many chapters end with a cliff hanging sentence which made me not want to put the book down. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen in the next chapter. There's a nice steamy love scene in this one which does not disappoint.
For me the best thing about this book was I had no idea who the real murderer was. I knew who I thought didn't do it but didn't figure out who did until it was disclosed in the book...a very rare thing.
One request from the author...I want to read Bellamy's Low Pressure!
As a reader of all of Sandra Brown's books, I have to say that I was disappointed in this one. It was difficult to get into and as I plugged away, it didn't really improve. Her other books are definitely worth reading though.
Boring, boring ,boring
I am confused by the high ratings.
