{Mini Review} Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood

Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood
Buchanan-Renard #10

Publication Date: August 7, 2012
Genre: Adult Contemporary


Attorney and IRS agent Olivia Mackenzie is the kind of tough, wise-cracking, powerful woman fans expect from a Garwood protagonist—but this time she has outdone herself. Olivia is not just any woman, she is every woman; flawed in the familiar ways so many of us are. 

On the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, one that threatens to ruin the lives of na├»ve and unsuspecting victims, Olivia suddenly finds her own life is in danger after she asks questions of the wrong people. She is accustomed to fighting for the underdog, but being vulnerable herself is a very different story. Smart enough to know when enough is enough, Olivia calls for reinforcements. 

When she meets FBI Agent Grayson Kincaid there is an immediate and obvious attraction, palpable on both sides. Together they make an excellent team to fight corruption but Olivia is also fighting the immediate and intense attraction she feels for Agent Kincaid, and that may be a battle she is bound to lose.

RATING: 3 out of 5 Stars
What I Felt
I seriously didn't know that this was the 10th book in the series. Anyway, that doesn't affect my reading experience as Sweet Talk do give some background information at the beginning. I enjoy reading Julie Garwood's books, especially her historical romance books but not so much for her contemporary ones. I'm trying to rectify the issue, hence Sweet Talk would be a start since I found it in the bookstore.

Characters are likable, except for Olivia's family. But they do serve their purpose in the book. I enjoy reading the interactions between the Olivia and Grayson and how Grayson became so protective of Olivia due to the dangerous situation she was in. He's such a darling! However, I do feel that there isn't much suspense in the book even though the book is still an enjoyable read.

An enjoyable read, but I'd prefer reading  her historical romance. Still, Sweet Talk is worth a read.

  1. I have never tried her contemporaries but do love her historical romances. While this wasn't perfect I am glad you enjoyed it.

    1. Hope she'll write more historical romances. :D Then we'll all be very happy.

  2. Oh no, I hate accidentally starting a series like that. Glad it didn't give you trouble though. I haven't read any of her books, know her historical books are popular.

    1. I'd recommend her historical romance! Try Ransom if you wanted to start on it. ;)

  3. I feel the same way about Lynsay Sands' books. I love her historical romances but I'm only so so with her attempts at other genres.
