Review
  • Rendezvous Review: After suffering a serious head injury Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti heads for his uncle's home. While at the airport Tom sees an international terrorist who has supposedly been dead for years. When he finds out that his Uncle Joe, and Joe's boss, Mr. Ashton, will be feted at a bash which includes many political figures he begins to wonder if that is why the terrorist is in town. Mr. Ashton's daughter Kelly, a doctor, is taking care of her father as he suffers from cancer. She has loved Tom since childhood and, even though he had left town without telling her, she feels all the old feelings creeping on her again. Joe and Mr. Ashton's adventures during the war thoroughly relate to this story. At first I caught myself feeling bogged down from the two thinking about the past so much, but soon realized there was a reason for this. Ms. Brockmann has put together a tightly woven story that had me hanging onto each word. A thrilling ride for these great characters. Virginia A. Deweese
  • Four plot lines are expertly interwoven to create a love story-cum-thriller in the latest work by veteran romance author Brockmann (Bodyguard), winner of two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards and a two-time RITA finalist. Navy SEAL Lt. Tom Paoletti, on medical leave after a near-fatal head injury, returns to his New England hometown and is drawn into an unresolved relationship with the girl he left behind. Kelly Ashton, now a pediatrician, is caring for her dying father when Tom returns to disrupt--and enrich--her life. Then Tom glimpses a terrorist he once pursued who's supposed to be dead, but his antagonistic superiors attribute the unlikely sighting to his head injury. Brockmann keeps the tension high, while also revealing the heartbreaking wartime secret shared by Kelly's father and Tom's beloved uncle. Another subplot involving Tom's niece also plays nicely into the dramatic finale as Tom and a makeshift team must take on terrorist bombers unaided. With its shift in focus from romance to the action subplot, this novel would make a terrific movie. (June) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
