FRENCH SILK is a typical Sandra Brown novel, a little too long and, at the mid-part of the story, a bit repetitive. The venue is New Orleans where televangelist, Jackson Wilde, publicly attacks Claire Laurent’s seasonal lingerie mail order catalog, French Silk, as tasteless and pornographic. Shortly thereafter Wilde is found in his hotel room with three appropriately placed bullet holes in his body. Handsome and dedicated Robert Cassidy, who gave up a lucrative legal defense practice to become assistant district attorney for New Orleans, is assigned the case. At the top of his suspect list is Wilde’s young second wife, Ariel, and his son, Josh, who have for some time concealed their affair. Later the prime suspect becomes Clair Laurent and Cassidy is forced to confront his professional integrity having fallen for this beautiful and talented suspect. When his D.A. boss finds out about Cassidy’s emotional entanglement, he threatens to take him off the case. Claire is extremely loyal to her French Silk Company employees and to her drop-dead gorgeous model and business partner, Yasmine. Claire also has a mother who lives in a fantasy world further complicating the plot and requiring much of Claire’s time. The local and married United States Congressman, Alister Petrie, who has a pattern of frequent affairs is also thrown into the mix and threatens to destroy the district attorney’s establishment if his affairs are exposed. Brown keeps the first and last parts of the novel moving at a fast pace. The story is a page turner. The novel is one of Brown’s better thrillers with just enough romance to keep it interesting. I give the story a 4 ½- star rating.
Rolling Flipper
This book has a Sidney Sheldon feel, with a heroine who has become successful despite a disturbed and difficult childhood leaving a bundle of secrets that she doesn't want to disclose. Sandra Brown has written a very easy-reading book made more entertaining by a few steamy relationships.

Claire Laurent has moved from a difficult childhood to build a lingerie catalogue empire from scratch. Her successful business is being targeted by a powerful and unscrupulous fiery TV preacher Jackson Wilde who believes that her skimpy lingerie are the work of the devil. When Wilde is found murdered, because of his fierce crusade against her business Claire becomes a prime suspect.

Assistant District Attorney Robert Cassidy is driven to find the murderer and does everything he can to prove that Claire is involved. To protect her secrets, her mentally unbalanced mother and her closest friends, Claire is not able to tell Cassidy the whole truth. The big problem is that Cassidy is rapidly falling for Claire and can't pick out what is the truth and the lies.

Other suspects are Wilde's young wife, Ariel, and her stepson, Josh, who have been having an affair. Ariel decides to take over and build the family business and continues to stir up her flock against Claire's business.

I had difficulty in understanding why someone from the District Attorney's office and not the police was given the prime investigatory role when the police had not arrested any suspect for the murder. The plot was pretty complex and the killer turned out to be the last person you would expect and the reason was hardly explained.

This is one of several early books by Sandra Brown (this one is circa 1992) that are currently being released on Kindle. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars.

I haven't read any Sandra Brown novels for a while and I am still wondering why, because most of her books I've liked. This book was no exception. A lovely, young, successful woman with a troubled past suspected of murder by a handsome assistant DA with a troubled past of his own.

I agree mostly with the reviewer who said, "... (as with all Sandra Brown's books) the endings come way to quickly, and you have to shift your imagination into overdrive to keep the story going in your mind past the final chapter." You do have to use your imagination at the end, but the ending didn't come too soon. I was glad to finally get there. The problem was the ending was rushed: this book needed one more chapter with the killer brought into the NOPD in handcuffs and booked. A trial with ALL the dirty little secrets brought out would have been really nice. The Jackson Wilde ministry should have been exposed for that it was ... a mockery of true faith and religion.

I believe Ms. Brown should have taken a bit out of the middle, toned down the repetition ... Claire's lying got annoying, and added more to the end. I guessed the killer the first time the killer's name is mentioned. That is reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. If there were half stars, I probably would have given it a 3 ½ stars, but the book is well worth the kindle price. If you're a Sandra Brown fan, you'll probably love it.

I have been a big fan of Sandra Brown for years, and was surprised there was a book-French Silk-that I had missed. Bought it with the anticipation of another great read. Well, it was in a way. Wonderful characters, plenty of believable suspects, good feel for New Orleans. I just had a terrible time with the "hero" Cassidy. I found him to be arrogant, obnoxious, and an unprofessional bully. I liked Claire a lot but she lost points with me for falling for this jerk. I would expect a woman of her intelligence to tell this creep to take a hike! Yeah, I know, it's just a story, but if it's not believable, what's the point?? Sorry I wasted my money on this one

Been a long time I have read a book without figuring out the mystery. I enjoyed this book. I wanted to finish book quickly.
Thank you Sandra Brown.
