Living a successful life in Charleston, South Carolina, Kate MacKenna has always been able to turn her challenges into triumphs. But now the fates seem to be lining up against her in a lethal fashion.

While attending a reception at a friend's estate for a controversial artist, Kate is nearly killed by an explosion. Once home, Kate is hit with the news that the prosperous fragrance company she has nurtured from the ground up is in jeopardy: It turns out that her late mother used the business as collateral for a huge loan, and full payment is due in three weeks. Kate's still reeling from this devastating news when her younger sister's volatile ex-boyfriend shows up and threatens her.

Then Kate receives a call from her best friend, Jordan Buchanan, who is hospitalized and scheduled for surgery in Boston. Though stretched to the limit, Kate immediately rushes to her side. Once she knows that Jordan is going to be fine, Kate abandons her calm façade and allows herself a major meltdown, doing something that is totally uncharacteristic: She has a one-night stand with Jordan's brother Dylan.

Coming to her senses, Kate returns home determined to get back on track and save her business. But the mishaps keep coming.

At Jordan's insistence, Dylan checks up on Kate. He's convinced that she's merely having a spell of bad luck - until he discovers how many people want Kate MacKenna dead.

    " dylan and kate... hm.. quite a couple, don't you think ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/13/2014

    " I just love me some Buchanan brothers. I thought Dylan was great and Kate was a strong vibrant lead. I love how Julie Garwood's books tend to intertwine and laughed when Glen McKenna was mentioned. This story kept me on my toes the entire time and was full of great suspense. It was a great ending to a great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime Atkins | 2/5/2014

    " Julie Garwood is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This was no disapointment. I couldn't read through it fast enough. The only thing I didn't like was the very end. I think it could have been much better, however, it didn't change my opinion of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 1/29/2014

    " Slow Burn is like those Sunday roasts your mother used to cook. It falls more into the category of satisfying than surprising or challenging. Personally I think there is a lot to be said for satisfying and I enjoyed this book a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella Bryndís | 1/21/2014

    " Yet again, Julie Garwood has proved to be a fantastic author, writing such wonderful thrillers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 1/18/2014

    " This was a really quick read - trash, but enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 1/16/2014

    " I liked this book so far the best out of all of them. It seemed more real and the long-time friendship that turned into more was something most of us want or have. I loved Isabel's southern charm, she was hilarious. Maybe she'll hook up with one of the younger Buchanan brother's, but I'm sure that would be pushing it and not very creative. Overall I was surprised at who the accomplice was, but I kinda figured put who it was about the same time Dylan did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/13/2014

    " Garwood's crime novels are always predictable. You can bet the bad guy is the one who was mentioned in a single sentence at the beginning of the book. But you really can't beat her for light reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brittany | 1/7/2014

    " i've read and liked a few of julie garwood's books before but this one really disappointed me. the dialogue was inadequate and just all over the place.. the romance was downright ridiculous and kate is one of the most idiotic protagonists i've ever read about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Journeywoman | 12/25/2013

    " I usually really enjoy Ms. Garwood's work, but this one was just meh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 12/15/2013

    " I love how Julie Garwood puts a sprinkling of romance into her thrillers. It's not too mushy and has just enough to make you dream/wish that you could meet a man like Dylan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 12/14/2013

    " Another great addition to the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anju Lakhansingh | 10/12/2013

    " Yet another great read...... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 8/19/2013

    " Adding books to my list. I will have to go back and reread to write an accurate review. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi | 8/18/2013

    " another of the buchanan series, but with a totally unexpected bad guy. Very good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 7/26/2013

    " I love the Buchanan's! Julie Garwood's Buchanan series is my guilty pleasure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianna | 6/18/2013

    " People get killed! Things blow up! Millions get given away! What's not to like?? :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 4/28/2013

    " One of my vacation books. Easy to get into. A quick paced book that draws you in immediately. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cyndi | 4/25/2013

    " Pulp fiction, not my taste. But if you like a little mystery, romance,good vs evil, and its laying around in your vacation cabin, its a complete waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R*beth*h Hart | 3/18/2013

    " I do have to say that backtracking in this series is kind of funny. This story line is pretty close to her book Mercy. That said I still love them both and get a real kick out of all the characters in the Buchanan series ; ) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blake | 12/30/2012

    " Liked the plan of the book here. It was interesting and had a good story line. personally.. I don't think it even was credible to think the main character would have been so stupid as to just let it all go. but hey that's me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felicia Rogers | 7/30/2012

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this read and read in two days. Again disappointed that the books don't have a number so you know which order to read them. I LOVED the little thing at the end with "The Florist", that was priceless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sayi | 5/6/2012

    " first Julie Garwood i ever read and i can honestly say it was one of the best by Julie. Slow Burns what got me hooked to Julie. Im glad my friend suggested this, it started me in a whole new direction and i discovered my love for romantic suspense novels. "

    " How I have missed reading a suspense novel, the last one I read was 'Black Hills' by: Nora Roberts a few years ago. I really enjoyed reading this book. The last chapter though, when he explained how he came to love pickles and why he started to call her that. lol. Truly cute. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/2/2011

    " It was okay. Just one of those "fluffy" reads that you can kind of skim thru. Not a bad story line. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 12/26/2010

    " I admit that I'm kind of burned out of romantic suspense books, but this was actually good. I liked the humor that was added, and while the plot was pretty simple, it was definitely interesting, and there was a surprising twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 12/15/2010

    " Julie Garwood is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This was no disapointment. I couldn't read through it fast enough. The only thing I didn't like was the very end. I think it could have been much better, however, it didn't change my opinion of the book. "

    " Just could not get into this book. got about half way and gave up.Cant even give a review as I cant remember the story/plot..nor did the characters stand out..way too much going on..left me scratching my head..thinking Huh?? who's this? Im going to stick to her historicals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 10/26/2010

    " Oh, those Buchanan's are HOT! Quick easy read between the "heavies". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 nancy | 9/22/2010

    " I thought the idea of falling in love for the wrong person at the wrong time is good and Dylan’s character is remarkable, in addition to the familiarity between the two main characters but the ending could be better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/15/2010

    " It's a nice book...but I didn't enjoy it much I'm expecting more update about Nick and Theo but I just got a little... "
