    One thought on “Tough Customer

    1. Mo

      This was the second book in the series. We met Dodge in the previous book but didn’t know a lot about him. He seemed to live a lonely existence so I was interested in reading about him.Hard-living detective-turned-P.I Dodge Hanley tries not to dwell on the past. But when he gets a call from Caroline King, “the one” who got away, there’s no time for looking back; their daughter is in trouble.I was dying to know what happened between Dodge and Caroline and their story was told in a series [...]

      The perfect book if you like tough, taciturn, Western cops with manly one syllable action names: we get two for the price of one. Dodge -- older guy reunited with his lost love Caroline, and Ski -- hunky deputy who falls for Caroline’s daughter Berry, during a manhunt to find a maniac obsessed with her. (I assumed while listening that her name was Barrie -- "Berry" is pretty weird. If it was ever explained, I missed it.)My favorite part of this was Dodge and Caroline’s story, revealed slowly [...]

    3. Lynsey A

      I'm a fan of Sandra Brown. I enjoy her books and I think she does a great job of reeling readers into her stories. This one was no exception. I liked the idea of lovers reuniting after 30 years apart but I knew there was a painful reason as to why the two split up 30 years ago when they were deeply in love.I liked the story but I didn't like it. As I mentioned, I liked the idea of lovers reuniting after 30 years but I don't like the reason they split up. I was hoping it wasn't what I thought but [...]

      4.5 StarsI loved Dodge, his dry humour and wit and the character came alive by Victor Slezak's narrationHis story of losing Caroline was very sad and I shed a tear even though he was a stupid idiot and deserved what he got, but my heart still broke for him and for Caroline who loved and lost the love of her life30 years is a long time to live without that person!Great story with a surprising twist at the end.

    5. Lisa - (Aussie Girl)

      Another great Sandra Brown. I loved the characters in this one especially the "Tough Customer" Dodge Hanley a wise cracking, ex lawman who has kept the mistakes of his past buried deeply inside but now must use all his skills to save the daughter he has never met from being a stalker's next victim. 4.5 stars.

      Excelente libro!!! Definitivamente soy fan de Sandra BrownEn el libro anterior Smash Cut conocemos a la dupla Derek Michell/ Dodge Hanley; si bien ese libro está focalizado en Derek, Dodge es parte esencial de la historia también. Pero en éste libro Dodge se tiene que hacer cargo de decisiones tomadas en el pasado y ayudar a una persona muy especial que es el blanco de un acosadorDodge Hanley - Caroline King.Una de las parejas protagónicas. Por contexto a lo largo de ambos libros sabemos que [...]

      Two reviews of this winner for me - AudioGals and Speaking of AudiobooksNarrated by Victor SlezakGlomming Sandra Brown’s romantic suspense audio backlist in 2010, I met Dodge Hanley, the hero of Tough Customer, in Smash Cut. It never dawned on me at the time that Dodge was a potential hero meant to carry his own book. He’s a middle aged, hard-talking, chain-smoking investigator for attorney Derek Mitchell (the hero of Smash Cut).Thirty years ago, Dodge and the love of his life, Caroline, div [...]

    8. Jacqueline

      This one was kind of hard to categorize. The mystery wasn't very mysterious and the end was a bit of a cop out and there weren't any clues dropped that I could see to help the reader figure it out. Some of the police stuff wasn't real realistic. The story of Berry and the man stalking her was interrupted quite often by flashbacks of her parents affair 30 years ago. At first the flashbacks were a little disruptive and then you realized that the real story was happening in the flashbacks and becau [...]

    9. Pamela(AllHoney)

      The second book in Sandra Brown's Mitchell & Associates series. Realtor Caroline King calls her old lover P.I Dodge Hanley for help. Their daughter, Berry Malone, has a stalker who is threatening her. Thirty years ago Caroline and Dodge were lovers and mistakes made tore them apart but now Caroline needs his help to keep their daughter safe and to find the stalker. Dodge teams up with the local police and the chase is on. I did not realize this was a series when I found it in the library but [...]

He's taken by surprise when gets a call from Caroline asking for his help.

    12. Katherine 黄爱芬

      Saya agak kecewa dgn novel ini. Memang agak berbeda dgn suspense romance author lainnya, tetapi malah saya merasa diberi suguhan suspense yg lebih jelek drpd biasanya. Belum lagi alur ceritanya cenderung lambat membuat bosan dan mata mengantuk.Tidak seperti biasanya, hero di novel ini sudah gaek, Dodge Hanley. Bayangkan saja Harrison Ford tua sedang beraksi, didampingi deputi yg jauh lebih muda, Ski Nyland (bayangkan saja Chris Hemsworth). Demi menolong anaknya yg sedang dirundung dan dikuntit p [...]

    13. Linda D

      I love Sandra Brown but not this one. Dodge is a good character but the "Sue Me' got old, as did the fat references. It was chock full of clichés, I expect better from Ms. Brown. Guess they can't all be winners.

    14. Marcie

      I haven't read a Sandra Brown in years. She used to be one of my faves. I saw this new one on the library shelf and thought, why not? 639 pages of large print, I've got a few days to walk down memory lane with an old friend.I kept cringing at the awkward logic forcing the action and the odd word choices in dialogue that really didn't fit the charactere "F" bomb flying in from nowhere, and frankly, there is not enough sex in this book. Seriously. Nobody does the nasty til the last 100 pages. I ha [...]

    15. Shea

      I've read most of Sandra Brown's books, and usually I'm excited when they come out and read through them really quickly (as in, maybe takes me 3 days to finish one). This one took me almost a whole week to get through. It was a little sad and disapointing that this book did not live up to Sandra Brown's usual standards.First of all, I didn't like Berry, one of the main characters. She came across as selfish, kind of mean, and overall just not a very good person. But, most of the book revolved ar [...]

    16. Tetty Marlinda

      #50 for 2017 RCGenre : SuspenseAntagonis di buku ini tipenya sama dengan tokoh antagonis di buku SB sebelumnya "Smash Cut". Mungkin karena dua buku itu berseri. Twist di akhir cerita benar-benar agak mengejutkan. But itu ciri khas SB.

    17. Britt

      If anyone had read my review of Smash Cut I spent many sentences describing just how much I loved Dodge in that book and wished that perhaps we had seen more into them. I was definitely pleasantly surprised to start this book (I've been collecting Brown books and tend to just randomly pick one off my shelf and go for it) and realise that my favourite man was there again!I really liked this book, particularly how it slowly told us Caroline and Dodge's story from the past and how everything went s [...]

    18. Lady Jaye

      Somewhere between 3.5 and 4 starsI won this book from a GoodReads Giveaway - my first time ever to win any book! - and I really enjoyed it. Berry Malone's coworker is stalking her and now he's escalated to violence. Caroline King, Berry's mother, calls in Dodge Hanley, a private investigator to ask him to help. she's been estranged from dodge for thirty years. Beery is their daughter, but Dodge has never met her. Although I didn't feel it was very suspenseful, I will say that this novel is more [...]

    19. Jeanne

      I was a little disappointed in the latest from Sandra Brown. Dodge Hanley is called to help his daughter Berry, whom he abandoned at birth. The flashbacks to the relationship between Berry's mother, Caroline and Dodge were distracting and the overall story was disorganized. Most of the characters were unlikable and the mystery was undeveloped, with an ending that had no development in the story. I get the feeling that this was a rushed project. Definitely not up to the author's earlier books.

    20. Lee Anne

      It was ok. I find myself not liking her characters. They just aren't relatable to me. The ending was good, and unexpected.

    21. Jennifer

      Another incredible story written by Sandra Brown. It had a great storyline, and like-able characters. Dodge was a riot, I really enjoyed his character. I'd rate this book with more than 5 stars if I could. I would highly recommend giving 'Tough Customer' a go.

    22. Judy Churchill

      This is more like the Brown style of complicated police work. I still didn’t get the solution before it was revealed in the book. I failed to bond with these characters and can’t quite figure out why when I liked the basic story. Oh well. Sometimes it’s like that.

    23. Maria

      I'm not sure what attracted me to this book beyond the need to read some romantic suspense. In this regard, the book does deliver, but the double romance diluted the impact of plot developments and weakened the strength of story.The book opens with Caroline King (a doppelganger of the author) calling private investigator Dodge Hanley for help. Dodge reminds me of NCIS's Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon)if Gibbs was a foul-mouthed chain smoker-- he's an older, acerbic, been there-done that former law en [...]

    24. Patricia Rockwell

      As a fan of Sandra Brown, I really looked forward to this book. The title "Tough Customer" suggested someone who would be hard to convince. I'm not really sure which of the four major characters the title refers to, maybe all four, but certainly all of them are tough, and their interactions are gripping. First, Dodge Hanley, a middle-aged former detective, who is suddenly called to a small Texas town by the love of his live, Caroline King, hot-shot real estate agent, to assist their daughter Ber [...]

    25. Gossymotto

      This was a very light read. Predictable story and shallow characters. If you just want something to breeze through without having to give it much thought, this one works, but I found the little inaccuracies started to get to me. Dodge (who could be Yosemite Sam, pulls his "Revolver" out of it's holster at one point, only to put his "Pistol" back in. I know that they's a both shootin' irons, but there is a difference so either he's got a pistol or a revolver, which is it? Then when the girl claim [...]

      Tough Customer by Sandra BrownCarolyn King calls upon him, Dodge Hambley again. Barre Malone's co worker wants to kill her and Dodge hopes he can save her.Dodge Hambley is her father. Warren Stocks had killed and continues to follow her.The story goes back in time to when Dodge was a street cop and he and his partner had been called to her house where her husband had beat her up.Barre had another worker drop paperwork off and stay so they could finalize the report for Monday. They had gone for a [...]

      When a crazed stalker attempts to kill her daughter Caroline King reaches out to the only person she trusts, a man she hasn't laid eyes on for 30 years. Dodge Hanley has tried, and failed, to forget Caroline King over the past 30 years. But when she reveals that the daughter born to them needs help he can't resist her pleas. I liked that this thriller focused more on the story than on playing up a romance and I also liked very learning through bits and pieces the truth about what happened betwee [...]

    28. Dale Safford

      I really liked this story, but the main character Berry Malone is a slut! She led on the murderer, and led on a married man who gets shot whom she once had an affair with and has invited to an overnight "work bee"! Otherwise the action moves right along, with a surprise twist before it is all concluded. Also, the title of the book makes no sense whatsoever - it should have been named better.30 years ago, Dodge Hanley was in love with Caroline King, who had their daughter and invited him out of h [...]

    29. Wendy Soliman

      I hate giving Sandra Brown three stars. Never given her such a low rating before but this one just didn't work for me. The hero meets his daughter thirty years after she was born because her mother called him to say she was in trouble. He runs to her rescue and I like the way he's an addicted smoker. The odd fault in a hero, especially one so politically incorrect, makes a nice change. My main beef was that there's too much back story. Yes, some was necessary to let the reader know why the coupl [...]

    30. Cindy ~ SnS Reviews

      This books starts off with Dodge Hanley getting a call from Caroline King stating their daughter is in trouble. Problem is he hasnt heard from Caroline in 30 years and the last time he saw his daughter was the day she was born 30 years ago I coudnt quite figure out exactly what age that made Dodge and Caroline but they had to at least be in there late 50 or early 60's. But you certainly couldnt tell it from they way they thought or acted There story is told through flashbacks. Berry (there daugh [...]
