Though a lifelong fangirl of Ms. Garwood’s work, I found this one below her usual standards.

When Special Agent Grayson Kincaid first encounters Olivia MacKenzie, she makes quite an impression. The beautiful, tough young attorney has stumbled into the middle of an FBI sting operation and reduced it to chaos. Olivia has ticked off the wrong guy. He’s FBI.

But Olivia is even more intimidating. She’s IRS. Olivia is on the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme for her own very personal reasons, and her investigation has enraged some ruthless people and endangered her life. She’s no stranger to tight situations, but she’s smart enough to know when to call for help, especially if that help is tall, dark, and handsome.

Together, Grayson and Olivia make a great team to fight corruption, but they’re also fighting an intense attraction—the one battle they’re bound to lose.

This book did not meet my expectations. I will pick up the next Pips book in hopes that she is back on track.

The supporting characters add depth to the story and I really hope we'll be seeing more of the Pips in future books. There were multiple suspense elements that kept me guessing until the very end.

It was an odd relationship, and while at times it didn’t work for me, there were other times it seemed to even all out. All in all this isn’t my favorite Garwood read

Sweet Talk is nonetheless something that anyone who is not a diehard Julie Garwood fan should leave on the shelf unless they are on a desert island with only Sweet Talk and Last of the Mohicans to choose from.

Ms. Garwood is a master at creating two believable likable characters, putting them in an untenable situation and letting them figure the rest of it out...thats the brilliance in her writing.

I loved how Garwood kept the friends together, standing by one another. There was even a mystery in that part of the story. Very well done. Great story & wonderful romance.
