No one does romantic suspense better than New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels. Southern Comfort, set in the steamy Florida Keys, provides that perfect combination of intrigue and passion Michaels’ fans have come to expect.
Five years ago Patrick “Tick” Kelly was a hotshot Atlanta detective whose loving wife and kids brought peace to his otherwise stressful life. Then his family was brutally murdered and he became a recluse in a small coastal town in Florida, his only companion a bottle of scotch. Getting sober took enormous determination for Tick, who now spends his time writing bestselling novels. But when DEA special agent Kate Rush arrives expressing her belief that a mysterious compound down the beach harbors illicit activities, Tick finds himself fascinated by Kate’s investigation—and by her inviting mix of courage and kindness. Tick and Kate soon discover they make a great team when, capitalizing on their combined expertise, they uncover a tangled web of betrayal, blackmail and ruthless greed. And as danger mounts, Tick realizes how far he’ll go to protect the rare and surprising gift that’s come his way: a second chance at a happy ending.

This was not up to Ferns normal style. The book had a decent plot but did little to excite the reader. It just did not develop the story very well or concentrate on the plot. If I had never read her books before I would not have been as disppointed as I am about the book. I had to make myself finish it and it was very anti-climatic.
This was not like what the brief excerpt lead to believe. It hardly centered on Patrick and Kate except in the end. I was more of what was going on down the beach. I usually enjoy Ms. Michaels' books but this one was just ok.
I agree with reviewer it dragged on and on. usually I like her books but this one I was disappointed with. Sorry
Usually I read Fern Michaels books in one day, this one has dragged on and on. I haven't enjoyed this one at all.
I read this yesterday and I was very disappointed. The story seems disjointed and incomplete. The characters are unbelievable. Not a book I would recommend and I am sorry that I purchased it instead of borrowing it from the library.
