Review:

When Ph.D. candidate Sandra Rutledge holes up in her parents' isolated Pocono Mountain cabin, all she plans to do is study for her upcoming oral exams. That is until she finds a handsome stranger bleeding to death in the snow. She drags him back to the cabin, and with help over the telephone from her mother, a world-renowned heart surgeon, Sandra administers first aid. Then she realizes the wounded man is Senator Wyatt Randolph who's name has been plastered all over the news for days. It turns out the senator came to the cabin looking for Sandra's father, the most powerful African American politician in the country, and head of the Senate Defense Committee. But why Wyatt showed up on their doorstep nearly dead from a stab wound and carrying millions of dollars worth of diamonds, Sandra can't understand. When Wyatt wakes up, he is disappointed to learn Senator Rutledge is not at the cabin. And he can hardly tell Senator Rutledge's daughter the truth, that Wyatt suspects the senator of stealing defense secrets and selling them to the highest bidder. And even worse, he suspects the Senator ordered the death of Wyatt's best friend as part of a cover-up. But Wyatt knows he has to get Sandra out of the cabin before the hired thugs who murdered his best friend and tried to kill him break in. And he's going to have to tell Sandra the truth about her father, even if she doesn't believe him, and even if it means destroying the growing attraction between them. Chased out of the cabin by the determined killers, Wyatt and Sandra embark on a wild chase through the halls of government, including the White House itself. Along the way, both learn how to trust. But trust can be a deadly game. One confidence in the wrong ear and both of them could be dead.While Ms. Hailstock has crafted a tale chock full of action and suspense, I wish the characters had been more complex and the mystery a bit less predictable. Shirley Hailstock knows how to plot real page-turners! White Diamonds is a quick read, full of suspense, action, and lots of glitz and glamour! Ms. Hailstock has a talent for hooking a reader! She writes for anyone longing for lots of action and suspense along with their romance! White Diamonds takes romantic suspense to the next level!Annette Carney -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
