‘Blind Curve’ is a romantic suspense novel written by Annie Solomon, a New York Times bestselling author. This 366-page book was published by Warner Books in February 2005. This novel won the Holt Medallion Award for best romantic suspense novel of 2005! Two lives come together after an unfortunate tragedy, bringing both unexpected danger and romance into their self-induced single lives.
Danny Sinofsky is a handsome undercover cop. In the middle of an undercover sting operation, shots are fired and Danny suddenly finds himself unable to see. Cortical blindness is the diagnosis from the neurologist. As there is only a slim possibility of regaining his sight, Danny is assigned a rehab, orientation and mobility instructor, Martha Crowe. A man who has always done everything for himself is now forced to depend on someone else.
Martha, on the other hand, is a plain girl, tall, skinny, and with big feet. She lives with her wheelchair-bound father. She remembers Danny from high school, whom she had a major crush on. As she begins Danny’s rehab, he fights her every step of the way. She returns to his home when she witnesses someone going into his house. She witnesses a botched attack on Danny and gets injured when the suspect flees.
As a target and a witness, both Danny and Martha are placed into a safe house. Yet, they find themselves on the run when an unexpected intruder arrives at the safe house. They soon find themselves working together to elude an unknown predator. With Danny’s sharp detective skills and Martha’s eyes, the two manage to work as a team to survive, while at the same time enjoying the adventure. Eventually, they come together after overcoming an extremely emotional journey.
Annie Solomon gave this reader a thrilling story charged with lots of humor, mystery and suspense. The reader got so absorbed in the events as they unfolded that it made it hard to put the book down until finished.
It was especially refreshing to read a romance where both main characters have issues that reveal that they are not perfect. Their relationship is not based on their looks, but who they are on the inside. She clearly defined how the characters assumed their current lifestyles. As many do, they had to go through the process of learning to trust before they could move forward.
An excellent point is made showing how one’s life does not always go as planned and you have to learn to adapt to the changes and make the best of what you are given. Very realistic and well-defined characters that one quickly falls in love with.
This author presented an extremely well-written story with great details on how the blind learn to function. She also provided many details on police activities. It was a very fast-paced read. A highly recommended read for anyone who loves romance combined with suspense and comedy.
