Another book by #1 New York Times bestselling author whose books I pick out from the shelves without even having to read the blurb! Garwood is a critically acclaimed author with thirty-six million copies of books in print. I’ve enjoyed several of her previous books, including Hotshot, Sweet Talk, The Ideal Man, Sizzle, Fire and Ice, Shadow Music, Shadow Dance, Killjoy and Mercy.
Fast Track is a story about a high school chemistry teacher in Chicago called Cordelia Kane. She was raised by her father from the time she was two years old becuse her mother died in a car crash. When he dies of a heart attack, she is devastated and is even more shocked to discover the truth about her mother. To find out more, she travels to Sydney. She is then drawn into a volatile family drama. To prevent Cordelia from telling the truth about her mother, attempts are made to silence her. Yet it is a surprise when the real culprit behind these devious plots is revealed.
Being a romantic suspense thriller, there is of course a sub-plot involving Cordelia and one of her best friends’ brothers. So, besides famiily secrets and an attempted murder, the book is also about the friendship of three girls and their relationships with their brothers and husbands.
Garwood’s novels are easy to read and light-hearted, a good way to relax and recharge. I look forward to her next book.
