It was a never-ending series of disappointment, especially as I really appreciate this author who’s able to do so much better than this. Brocmann this book seemed to tout a lot of her own political agenda and liberal views a bit too much I listened to this on audio.

REVIEW: Infamous by Suzanne Brockmann
It just got worse from there. Sep 20, Mary rated it did not like it. And I loved it. Like holy shit and sweet baby Jesus. Gallagher– can seeis out to redeem his name and restore his family’s reputation by communicatin Well I finally finished, and I’m asking myself–was this really a Suzanne Brockmann book?
During parts of the story the reader is being talked to by Gramps. A wonderful lively romping frolic, a great beach read.
However, if you hang in there, you won’t be sorry. Brockmann intertwines stories like this. Wh Infamous by Suzanne Brockman has got characters! J is being haunted – I use the term loosely because the grandfather has no malice – but wants A.
Not in a permanent way, but in a better-things-to-do-right-now kind of way. This ghost is not hokie in anyway. Fans of Suzanne Brockmann only. And the ghost can “travel” between different places related to his own and the hero’s life, except for when he suddenly and unexpected I think so highly of Suz’s stuff that this was a bit of a disappointment. The only saving grace this book had was the letters that were strategically placed throughout the story from the late Melody, written more than years earlier.
Brockmann has garnered the attention of magazines such as Out and Bay Windows both of which serve the gay communitydue to a subplot dealing with the romance of an openly gay character in her Troubleshooters, Inc. But when he confronts Alison, sparks fly. But when they find themselves on the run while trying to fit puzzle pieces together that started it all, Alison becomes a believer when Jamie is suddenly their lifeline.
I started getting really frustrated when there was a murder plot involved. I barely noticed why and didn’t care. The making of yet another movie about the perfect Quinn and the villainous Gallagher brings Jamie back to lovingly haunt his great-grandson A. I’m not sure quite whether it improved or detracted from my over-all impression of the novel to hear it on audio. I loved the tender story of Jamie and Melody, told through his reminiscences and her diary entries; it brings to mind Brockmann’s multistory romances in the beginning of the “Troubleshooter” series.
It seems effortless, seamlessly moving from to the other, adding another dimension to the entire story as it goes along. How can that not create humor when the two of them are trying to talk to each other at the same time?
But hero sees a ghost, and that ghost actually tells about a third of the story from his first-person POV. In she began writing a young adult paranormal trilogy, Night Sky, with her daughter Melanie Brockmann.
And after a long dry spell that spells trouble with a capital T. Unfortunately things are all fun and games for these three.
I was truly touched when she wrote about the rape from the Monster and then the resulting child. So many people complained about the ghost in this story and I can’t see how the story would have been anything without him! I’ll admit, the whole plot to kill Allison because she might be a loose end thing was a little slim, even though she didn’t actually witness a crime, but I think it worked well enough.
This book has a similar feel to Heartthrob and to the Unsung Hero and if you enjoyed those, I think you’ll like this, unless you are allergic to ghosts.
You have the present day romance between A.

Suzanne is such ifnamous great author, I wish she would have fleshed out Jamie and Melody’s tumultuous meeting and subsequent love affair and let me see the entire story instead of just the bits thrown into this book as a secondary plot.
