Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes the first book in a new romantic suspense trilogy: Lightning Strikes. In these connected novels, a lightning strike leads to love, danger, and the unraveling of a family mystery that'll change the past and the future....

When her father's plane mysteriously disappeared in the middle of an electrical storm, Alicia Monroe became obsessed with lightning. Now a news photographer in Miami, Alicia covers local stories by day and chases storms at night. In a flash of lightning, she sees what appears to be a murder, but when she gets to the scene, there is no body - only a military tag belonging to Liliana Valdez, a woman who has been missing for over a year.

While the police use the tag to jump-start their stalled investigation, Alicia sets off on her own to find the missing woman. Her search takes her into the heart of Miami's Cuban American community where she meets the attractive but brooding Michael Cordero, who has his own demons to vanquish.

Soon Alicia and Michael are trying to save Liliana's life as well as their own, as someone will do anything to protect a dark secret....

    "Proper mystery come love story - bit long"

    If you like a modern love story with a mystery - this is a good read/listen. Some sections were a bit long and predictable, but you can skim/fast forward. I sometimes found the narrator 's voice a bit grating, particularly when speaking male dialogue, but overall I was absorbed and enjoyed it.

    "Don't"
    What disappointed you about Beautiful Storm?

    The story was unconvincing and predictable, the characters boring, the narration poor... Probably the worse audiobook I have ever listened to. Barely managed to finish it.

    "Was a great book"

    Was it fate, what an amazing story. The mystery and romance between Alicia and Michael. I couldn't put this book down. Wondering what they would find next. Would they find Michaels friend dead or alive. The family rekindling. Then finally the news came, and along with it was more trouble. The fact that Alicia thought she could trust an old friend. Turned into trouble. Then again mystery. Lightning comes down from the sky to show you what you need to see! Was it fate, what an amazing story. The mystery and romance between Alicia and Michael.

    "Just Ok"

    I felt the story had enough to keep me interested but I did not enjoy the narrator. Having a woman's voice fill in the male roles was not pleasant. It sounded bad and that detracted from the story for me.
