TV reporter Tiel McCoy is driving down Interstate 20 on her way to New Mexico for a well-earned vacation. But her itinerary is rewritten when she hears on the radio that the teenage daughter of a well-known Fort Worth multi-millionaire has been kidnapped, at least that's the official report. In truth, she is pregnant and has run away with her boyfriend. After calling her editor, Tiel abandons her holiday plans in favor of pursuing the story.

During an innocuous visit to a convenience store in Rojo Flats, Tiel gets up close and personal with the barrel of a gun, two desperate young lovers -- and the scoop of a lifetime.

In the electrifying standoff that follows, she learns why the two young runaways fear the wealthy father of one of them even more than the FBI...and why she must defend them against a world bent on their destruction.

Poignant and riveting, Standoff is suspense at its best, as only Sandra Brown can create it.

Review:

Some reporters have all the luck--especially plucky, ambitious, determined Texas TV news reporter Tiel McCoy, who walks into a convenience store on her long-postponed vacation and finds herself smack in the middle of the biggest story of her life. A couple of scared kids--an all-American boy and his very pregnant girlfriend, on the lam from her powerful, wealthy father who's determined to keep them apart--hold Tiel and a handful of other customers hostage. While Ronnie's brandishing the gun, Sabra goes into labor, and a mysterious, handsome stranger known as "Doc" takes over what soon turns into a life-threatening delivery. Only Tiel knows who Doc is: a brilliant, innovative physician who disappeared after a scandal involving the death of his wife. And only Tiel knows the identity of the gun-wielding boy and his girl, who are at the center of a manhunt the size of Texas. But there are some secrets she doesn't know, including the murderous reputation of two men trapped in the store with the rest of the hostages. As the drama unfolds, it becomes apparent that the kids would rather die than surrender, and the police, the FBI, and Sabra's father will precipitate a volatile end to the standoff.

Brown is a skillful writer, able to sustain suspense while fleshing out her characters. She saves the obligatory sex scene for the very end, but makes it worth waiting for. Tiel McCoy is an engaging heroine, and Brown fans will look forward to her return in another adventure after she wins the coveted promotion this dramatic exclusive will no doubt earn her.

From the Inside Flap:

A fearless reporter trapped in a volatile siege, two young lovers turned fugitive, and a holdup that transforms a small desert town into a powder keg.... Now #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown demonstrates her unparalleled powers of invention to once again tell a story that combines deep emotion with edge-of-the-seat suspense.

TV reporter Tiel McCoy is driving down Interstate 20 on her way to New Mexico for a well-earned vacation. But her itinerary is rewritten when she hears on the radio that the teenage daughter of well-known Fort Worth multimillionaire Russell Dendy has been kidnapped. At least that's the official report. In truth Sabra Dendy is pregnant and has run away with her boyfriend, Ronnie Davison. After calling her editor, Tiel abandons her holiday plans in favor of pursuing the story.

Then, in a town called Rojo Flats, during an innocuous visit to a convenience store, Tiel will come up close and personal with the barrel of a gun, the desperate young lovers -- and the scoop of a lifetime.

In the electrifying standoff that follows, she will meet and grow to trust a strangely familiar local rancher whom fate has also sent to the scene of the crime. She will learn why the two young runaways fear the wealthy father of one of them even more than the FBI ... and why, casting off a reporter's impartiality, she must defend them against a world bent on their destruction.

Poignant, riveting, and offering a new twist or turn on every page, STANDOFF is suspense at its best, as only Sandra Brown can create it.
