Julie Garwood was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1946. Her writing career began when the last of her three children entered school. Her first novel, Gentle Warrior, was published in 1985. She has written over 25 romance novels since then including Shadow Dance, Slow Burn, Murder List, Killjoy, Mercy, Heartbreaker, Ransom, Come the Spring, and The Ideal Man. Her novel For the Roses was adapted into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.
She also wrote a children's book, What's a Girl to Do?, and has also begun writing a novel for young adults under the pseudonym of Emily Chase. Her title Sweet Talk made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.
A survivor of childhood cancer and parental neglect, attorney Olivia MacKenzie advocates for children, works for the IRS, and secretly plans to send her corrupt, charismatic father to prison. A job interview explodes in violence, throwing Olivia into the orbit of magnetic FBI agent Grayson Kincaid, and suddenly she is forced to deal with an instantaneous, passionate attraction that is far more threatening to her peace of mind than the villain who wants her dead.
A valiant heroine with her own agenda clashes with a hero who won't take no for an answer in this dynamic mystery that tantalizes fans with plenty of red herrings, complex plot lines, and a delicious romantic relationship that isn't quickly resolved.
Verdict: Don't be fooled by the sweet title! This riveting page-turner draws readers into a character-rich adventure that sensitively addresses family issues and highlights the importance of loyalty and long-term friendship. Garwood (The Ideal Man) lives near Kansas City.
