    1. Desire, such as he’s never felt before pulsed through himI really enjoyed this one. The last SB book I read was a bit of a letdown so I was a tad wary of starting another one by her."Do you play?"Love her male characters. Duncan is a cop. Dedicated to the job. Tough, gruff, grouchy. Loved his partner too, Dee Dee – would love her to get a HEA."I don’t believe we get to choose who we fall in love with, do you?"As with a lot of suspense/mystery novels, we are better off knowing less about th [...]

    2. My love affair continues with yet another fantastic book by Sandra Brown. I will say though for this one it took a little longer for me to lock in to the love but it happened and that is all that is important! :)In Ricochet we are taken to beautiful Savannah, Georgia and Lady’s Island, South Carolina. SB writes so descriptively that you can close your eyes for a moment and imagine that you were there.The main characters were awesome. I really enjoyed both Duncan and Elise. The secondary charac [...]

    3. 4.5 starsIn what police procedural novels are concerned, Sandra Brown can do no wrong, and Ricochet is yet another winner. Definitely a page-turner, dynamic, intense, perfectly plotted, well researched, with equally believable good guys and villains, and displaying once more the astounding dialogue and the cop banter I have always loved this author for. I cannot say I really liked the sound and detached heroine, but that was probably me, I have never been too fond of the premise of a lady (view [...]

    4. Things get started when Detective Duncan Hatcher is called to the home of Judge Cato Laird's home where his wife, Elise had shot and killed an intruder. What follows during the investigation is lots of intrigue and subterfuge. It's an interesting story with a slow start and an exciting second half. The ending had me in a twist and confused so that's a plus. However, I found it difficult to connect with anyone, especially Elise and Hatcher's partner, Dee Dee. He also ran hot and cold so often he [...]

    5. 2 ½ stars. It was not fun. I was angry at Elise for more than half the book.Elise asks Duncan for help and says her husband wants to kill her. When Duncan asks what her husband’s motive is, she won’t tell him. Therefore, he has no reason to believe or help her. Finally at about the 3/4 mark, she tells him “why.” Then Duncan helps her and the story becomes interesting. I would cut a lot of the first 2/3 or so of the book. There was too much hypothesizing, pondering, and wondering. I did [...]

    6. A very good and interesting story. I love how Ms. Brown's stories are complicated and how she resolves the complications! :)So, why only 4 stars?It's because the romantic part of the story seemed rushed. I couldn't feel the connection between Duncan and Elise. I couldn't understand, besides the insta-lust, why Duncan fell in love with Elisa.They didn't have very much contact, they didn't interact enough, he hated her, didn't trust her, suspected her of murder and of being a money-grabbing cold w [...]

    7. Overall rating: 4 stars!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ This was one book where the heroine's husband (albeit, he was a terrible human being) was not shown to have cheated on Elise. Now, in regards to the hero and heroine. Duncan is attracted to Elise from the start. That turns into feelings which turns into love. He is fighting these feelings for a few reasons - all very understandable. First, she is married. Second, she is married to a man he despises! Third, she is the lead suspect in a mu [...]

    8. ENGLISH REVIEW DOWN BELOWSandra Brown nos trae de nuevo un thriller imposible de soltar, que te mantiene enganchado hasta la última página y que te deja sin aliento.En esta ocasión nos plantea un conflicto a simple vista como bien lo detalla la sinopsis: El detective Duncan tiene que ir a la casa del juez Cato Laird porque su esposa, Elise, mató en defensa a un ladrón que quiso dispararle primero.Hasta ahí todo viene bien, la premisa es sencilla y nos presentan a los personajes a grandes r [...]

    9. I picked this up in an airport last weekend, and I believe it's the first Sandra Brown novel I've read. Which is impressive, because she's got more than 70 novels in print under a couple of different names. Ricochet is a character-driven mystery novel centering on Duncan, a detective with a rock-solid moral core and Elise, a beautiful trophy wife who may or may not have committed murder. As Duncan investigates the shooting, he is increasingly attracted to and drawn in by the lovely and mysteriou [...]

    10. 3.5 starsThis signed book was won in a First Reads giveaway. Ricochet takes place in Savannah, Georgia. Detective Duncan Hatcher is investigating a murder at a prominent judge’s home. The judge’s wife Elise admits to killing an intruder but Duncan wants to investigate further. To make matters worse, Duncan is attracted to Elise. I must admit that I really enjoyed reading Ricochet. Ricochet was a very readable book, full of mystery and suspense, sexual tension, and many plot twists. I loved [...]

    11. *Esta opinião contém alguns spoilers*Ricochete foi a minha estreia com Sandra Brown. E que dizer deste livro? Bem, ele certamente teve capacidade para me entreter mas não me conquistou.Sandra Brown presenteia-nos com um a leitura agradável e com um leque diversificado de personagens, sendo que a minha personagem preferida foi sem sombra de dúvida a parceira de Duncan, DeeDee. Ela é honesta, sarcástica, mordaz, perspicaz e terra-a-terra e protagonizou vários momentos hilariantes no livro. [...]

    12. This wasn’t Sandra Brown’s best, but it’s not her worst, either. The good was Brown’s ability to build suspense – she’s one of the best. But not all of the characters worked for me. Duncan was a little too ruled by his hormones, and sometimes had mood swings that didn’t make much sense. His partner, DeeDee, was essentially the stereotypical homely girl who automatically hates anyone who is pretty whether she has a reason to or not. Elise is intended to be a mystery. You’re never [...]

    13. My first book from Sandra Brown. I loved this story. The twists and turns were engaging and the chemistry between Duncan and Elise was delicious. Elise was my favorite character. She was regarded as a brainless piece of arm candy by everyone even Duncan, but she was so much more. I enjoyed watching her quiet strength unfold and her fight to get her life back.

    14. Duncan adalah gambaran polisi yang banyak kita lihat di film. Seksi dengan gaya peselancar ugal-ugalan berantakannya, mulut ceplas ceplos, kelakuan semau gue tapi itu justru jadi pesona utamanya. Elise heroinenya adalah tipikal karakter trophy wife SB yang sejujurnya ngebosenin banget karena udah tampil beberapa kali. Wanita yang luar biasa cantik, sempurna, misterius dan di salah pahami pembaca. Sayangnya Dee Dee partner Duncan yang lugas dan seru banget justru mencuri spotlight dari Elise yang [...]

    15. Relistening. Terrific story but narration leaves a lot to be desired. Still thoroughly enjoying this second listen. But in the end, I didn't care for it as much as the first time around. That terrific feeling lessened. The narrator is average at best and it is sometimes difficult to tell if the hero or heroine is speaking - a particular that will cause my opinion of an audio to plunge. Also saw some real plot holes this time around. Content 4 stars and narration 3 stars. 8/2015AudioGals review:N [...]

    16. Ricochet is a moderately enjoyable thriller (rating it between 2 and 3). The plot's just interesting enough to keep on reading. There’s a mystery in this novel about the major female character, Elise Laird, and about whether her motives are good or not. I found that aspect of the mystery intriguing, but I thought the author took too long in developing it. In my opinion there are too many long passages in the middle of this book where the police characters speculate about who did what, and why. [...]

    17. I don't know why, but the whole time i was reading this book I kept thinking that Sandra Brown has some kind of patter with her mystery/thrillers: murder some people, place the blame on some faulty character who insists is innocent and that someone is framing them/trying to murder them, confuse reader about the moral code of all the characters & finally conclude the story with the most ovbious solution that one of the morally-inept characters was trying to push off on us from the beginning. [...]

    18. Acho que me vou repetir…Adorei, adorei, adorei! Mais uma vez Sandra Brown conseguiu cativar-me com mais um romance policial. Já adorava esta autora desde que lia os seus romances da Harlequin, mas esta vertente tem-me completamente cativada. São poucas as pessoas que conseguem escrever um romance policial com tanta essência de mistério e suspense e apesar de os vilões não serem muito surpreendentes, muitas vezes dei por mim a pensar o que seria ou não correcto naquela trama. Gostei da E [...]

    19. I've been reading mostly suspense lately, including a lot of romantic suspense, or "suspense with romantic elements". Unfortunately, too much of it has been mediocre to virtually unreadable. Then I came across a copy of Sandra Brown's "Ricochet" on our shelves at home. I hadn't read anything by Brown yet, but my wife had read "Ricochet" several years ago and enjoyed it, adding it to our "keeper" collection. I picked it up and was hooked in the first few pages. The pacing in the book is just righ [...]

    20. I normally love Sandra Brown books but I thought this one was poor. The plot, storyline and characters were incredibly weak. It was utterly boring and so full of stupidity that I was hardly able to read it all the way through. A downer all the way. The worst part was Elise's character. I had not simpathy for her. She was unpleasant, deceptive and dishonest. A pain in the neck. And don't even get me started on the unrealistic romance and the infidelity angle. Sorry, I absolutely hate cheating in [...]

    21. Every strength has a weakness.Duncan: I’ve fallen into instant lustI didn’t know that getting struck by lightning could feel so good.”What I like most about this novel is Duncan character. He has been a man of integrity until he met Elise.How Ms. Brown methodically shapes MCs into moral grey areas makes this book a page-turner.Elise’s plan for vengeance is somewhat unrealistic. It is a good RS with multi-layered characters and the mystery that hooked me from the start.

    22. This book wasn't bad, but I just found some aspects of this book to be unbelievable. Sandra Brown did manage to keep me interested, and I wanted to know what was going to happen. I was able to figure out some of the twists, but I would definitely check out some of her other books!

    23. Blah Blah Blah - summer easy peasy read. I'm onto the formula now so I need to take a Sandra Brown break. Plus this narrator was not my favorite, unlike Slezak and Stephen Lang who are my favorites.

    24. Sandra Brown é uma das minhas autoras predilectas. Conquistou-me logo à primeira linha, sem me dar a possibilidade de pensar duas vezes no assunto. Hoje em dia quando penso em romances policiais, um dos primeiros nomes que me vem à cabeça é ela. Assim sendo, os policiais românticos que Sandra Brown escreve tornaram-se leituras obrigatórias para mim. Ambas as características (a parte policial e a parte romântica) estão bastante equilibradas, o que faz com que os livros da autora sejam u [...]
