Sizzle: A Novel

by Julie Garwood

Random House Publishing Group | December 29, 2009 | Hardcover

Sizzle: A Novel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Whether it's exhilarating historical romance or spine-tingling contemporary suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood weaves magnificent stories of passion, adventure, and intrigue. Now she raises the heat and spices up the action with a sexy, smart, daring new heroine and a smoldering thriller that's classic Garwood—and pure Sizzle.

Lyra Prescott, a Los Angeles film student, is closing in on graduation and facing important decisions about her future. She's already been offered a job at her hometown TV station, an opportunity that could ultimately launch her dream career as a film editor. But heading back home would also mean dealing with her overprotective brothers, social-climbing mother, and eccentric grandmother. Unsure of her future, Lyra dives into work on her final school assignment: a documentary transformed by a twist of fate into a real-life horror film.

After she unwittingly captures a shocking crime on camera, a rash of mysterious, treacherous incidents convince Lyra that she's trapped in a sinister scenario headed for a violent ending. Running scared, she turns to her best friend, Sidney Buchanan, whose connections bring dauntless and devilishly handsome FBI agent Sam Kincaid into Lyra's life. As the noose of deadly intrigue tightens and the feelings between them deepen, Lyra and Sam must place their faith in each other's hands—and stand together against the malevolent forces about to break loose.
 
No one mixes life-and-death suspense with feverish desire better than Julie Garwood. In Sizzle she burns hotter and brighter than ever, keeping the action and passion blazing till the incredible, unforgettable end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad but not her best I have read all of Garwoods books, I found this book to be lacking compared to her others. Her characters fell a little flat, and though the plot was good I don't think she executed it very well. And though it had a few laughs, it didn't have the same humor her other books have. Not one of her best, better to pay paperback, but is a decent read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so so.... I absolutely love Julie Garwood's books I have always looked forward to a great read. I found this book entertaining but it didn't have the "wow" factor of the original Buchanan series. It wasn't worth the price of hardcover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like the "Buchanan" series! I have liked all of the books in this series. I especially like that Garwood includes glimpses of past characters and hints at future ones. I recommend any of these books. I only hope that the author continues with these contemporary romances because I'm not a fan of historical ones.

Read from the Book

Chapter OneThey called him a hero for doing his job. And if that weren’t bad enough, damn if they weren’t making him talk about it.Special Agent Samuel Wellington Kincaid received a standing ovation when he finished his lecture. He gave a quick nod then tried to leave the podium and the auditorium, but he was pulled back by another FBI agent who insisted that, as soon as the cheering and clapping stopped, Sam answer questions.Knowing he should cooperate, he nodded again and waited for the audience of cadets and future FBI agents to quiet down. Like most people, Sam hated giving speeches, especially those concerning his work in intelligence, but this was a training seminar and a goodwill mission, and he had been ordered by his superiors to talk about his role in the dramatic capture of the notorious Edward Chester, a radical white supremacist and one of the most elusive criminals in many years.Despite his reluctance, Sam had been scheduled to conduct five of these seminars around the country. He’d already completed the first in D.C., and this one in Chicago was the second. Next week he would fly to Seattle for the third and then on to Los Angeles. His final stop would be at the naval base in San Diego where he would address Navy SEAL trainees. Inwardly, he groaned at the thought of three more appearances in front of inquisitive audiences who wanted only to hear sensational details of the capture.This particular audience, however, also wanted to hear how Sam, while helping out
