Book Review: Fast Track, by Julie Garwood

I've never read a book by Julie Garwood before, and Fast Track was an entertaining introduction to her writing.

When Cordelia's father is on his deathbed he tells Cordelia that her mother, who supposedly died when Cordelia was a baby, is still alive. Cordelia decides to find her mother to see why she just gave up on Cordelia and her father.

Her quest takes her to the upper echelons of Australia. Her mother is very wealthy and has a whole new family.

Cordelia's adventure is helped by her two life-time best friends and the brother of one of them, Aiden, who owns hotels all around the world. Cordelia used to have a crush on Aiden -- or does she still?

The romance is very slow burning and doesn't take over the story, but it's still exciting. Cordelia's discoveries about her family also put her in danger, which ramps up the suspense factor.

So Fast Track has romance, danger, friendship, and a lot more to keep your interest. Fast Track is an adult book, and contains some pretty explicit sex scenes, so be warned if recommending this to teens.  It's all very well paced and easy to read. Fast Track doesn't really break any new ground, and it probably won't be one of those books that sticks with me forever, but I really enjoyed my time, and I would recommend it to fans of adventure/romance books.

  1. Annette, our thoughts on this book are very similar, and my review is very much along the same lines as yours. It was my first experience with Julie Garwood as well, and the Australian publisher is really pushing the Sydney angle, which I thought was a bit misleading.

    Great review!
