Awaiting the sequel
1 March 2000 | by (Ventura, California) – See all my reviews



Since this movie aired three years ago, I've waited for the sequel to be made.

I hadn't planned to watch this "Mini Series" feeling that it was going to be the same old, same old... I found myself quite surprised at the twisting,turning plot that kept you jumping in your seat and you bet I didn't miss the conclusion two nights later.

Not only was this an excellent TV movie, but Valerie B. did a great job as the lead character Megan and Harry Hamlin was good in the lead of the tough cop with a heart of gold. I ran out and bought the book and enjoyed it so much, that I've got Tami Hoag's entire collection of books. If you get a chance to see this movie, Do Watch it, you won't be disappointed and Read her books, you'll be hooked just like me and my co-workers!
