REVIEW- FAST TRACK BY JULIE GARWOOD

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy’s girl—her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother.
Cordelia can’t suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them.
Hotel magnate Aiden Madison is Cordelia’s best friend’s older brother. He’s oblivious to the fact that she’s had a crush on him for years. When he gets railroaded into taking her along to Sydney on his company jet, he’s unwittingly drawn into a volatile family drama.
Aiden wants to help Cordelia get answers about her mother, but threats from her wealthy, high-powered family are quickly becoming dangerous. Sparks are flying between Cordelia and Aiden, but after multiple attempts are made on Cordelia’s life, Aiden realizes he must put a stop to the madness before he loses the thing he values most.

FAST TRACK WILL BE RELEASED 29JULY14

MY REVIEW: (MAY CONTAIN SOME LIGHT SPOILERS)
A special thank you to NetGalley (and the publisher) for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for my honest review. 
I've only read a handful of Ms. Garwood's books over the years and each time I do, I kick myself in the butt a bit for not reading ALL OF THEM.
Although Fast Track is linked to her other books (the main and secondary characters appear specifically in Murder List and Fire and Ice - if I'm not mistaken- I had too look and now I'll have to go read both of those!) AND if you don't mind knowing about those other characters, you can read this as a stand alone.
THE NOT SO GOOD:
I was a bit disappointed about the whole explanation (or lack of) concerning Cordie's father and biological mother's relationship - especially her father's feelings. 
I was also disappointed with the resolution of the conflict/major plot point. I though it was weak and actually left unresolved.  The ending was extremely abrupt and I felt  I bit cut off. 
THE GOOD: 
LIAM.
I always love Ms. Garwood's books because she writes the best characters. Her style is fast paced and engaging. 
LIAM.
Fast Track was extremely emotional (at the beginning) and made me cry(again at the beginning).  
LIAM. 
I really did enjoy this book overall(and recommend it)even if it was a bit predictable overall. It was still fun, and you'll want to read it in one sitting and you'll be wondering who her next book is about.
