Though tracing a red Mustang does not seem so difficult, readers will enjoy RECORD TIME, an amusing romantic suspense novel that is a top ten hit for Beverly Brandt. The lead couple is a delightful pair and the support cast, especially her sister, propel the story line forward. As the plot moves briskly between industry intrigue and humorous romantic interludes, both sides of the tale blend nicely together to provide an enjoyable novel.
