Received too late for a full review, Bradford's newest romantic suspense yarn (Her Own Rules, 1996, etc. etc.) begins during one Thanksgiving in Connecticut and ends, some months later, in the Grill Room of the Dorchester Hotel in London. Center-stage, betweentimes, is the title's woman of power: the late-40ish, super-rich (thanks to her British in-laws' silversmith business) Stevie Jardine--married at 16, widowed at 23, and now with three grown children, one of whom may be a good deal more devious than anyone (most especially his mother) ever knew. By the close, though, Stevie will have gone from a ""sense of foreboding"" to finding (no surprise) love and forgiveness all around. For Bradford's devoted fans, which by now number in the millions.
