Review & Giveaway: MEAN STREAK by Sandra Brown

In Mean Streak by Sandra Brown, Dr. Emory Charbonneau is a well known pediatrician, marathon runner, and philanthropist.  Her current cause combines the latter two and in preparation for running the marathon, Emory decides to train by running part of the Appalachian Trail in rural North Carolina.  Things don’t exactly go as planned and Emory wakes up in a strange man’s cabin with a concussion and no recollection of how she got there  Worse still, is the stranger her savoir or someone bent on causing her harm?
