From the beginning to end, If Tomorrow Comes catches the reader¿s attention. Sidney Sheldon created a strong female character named Tracy Whitney. She is faced with life-threatening conflicts throughout the novel and loses everyone she cares about. Sidney Sheldon makes it hard for the reader to set down the book. There is action and suspense that keeps you wanting more. Tracy Whitney encounters numerous conflicts all throughout the story. She spends her time getting revenge on the men that ruined her life. In the beginning Tracy has a fairytale life. She is about to be married to the man of her dreams and is pregnant. Due to the loss of a family member, she encounters the man who ruined her family¿s life, Joe Romano. He not only caused the death of her mother but also got her thrown into jail for robbery. Tracy Whitney serves time in jail and plans her escape. She rescues a young girl and is released early. This is when she starts to plot her retaliation upon everyone who made her life miserable. The story is thrilling from start to finish. I would not recommend this book to children under the age of thirteen because of obscene language and sexual content. In every chapter something happens that is life changing to young Tracy. She manages to get back at her enemies, without actually killing them herself. Tracy Whitney is not a realistic character, or stock. I don¿t believe that she could handle all of the things she went through especially, when it happens so drastically. She is unpredictable and doesn¿t do anything she seems to intend to do. This book is mysterious, Tracy Whitney keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspense. This book is remarkable because it shows how to remain strong through everything no matter what happens to you. The only person that is there for you is yourself, and no one else can make you happy or be there for you. Sidney Sheldon really knows how to keep you in suspense. I recommend this book to everyone over the age of 13.

Sheldon wrote many, many novels but this 1 ranks among the top 4 with me, coming in at #4. 'Master of the Game' is #1. Omg, Sheldon is such a master storyteller.

When I started reading this book, I immediately sensed the originality in it. The style in which Sheldon depicts Tracy Whitney is very pitiable. She is convicted for something that is in no way her fault. Then she has to go through all the atrocities of a prison and its inmates. The rest of the book is so vividly put down that it's actually very hard t o explain it unless it is read. From all the books of Sydney Sheldon that I've read-which are almost all, with the exception of two-I KNOW and not think that 'If Tomorrow Comes' is THE best Sheldon book ever.

I read this book when I was about 13 and more than a decade later, it's still my number one favorite. The plot is amazing and I have to come back to Sydney Sheldon any time I think my standards are slipping. The depth of his knowledge from travels to his character development were top-notch. I just read his biography and what an amazing man. Had to come back and give him credit for being my favorite.

i read this book when i was only 15 and still into all those cutesy romantic teen books. it was one of the first 'adult' books i ever read. ive now read it 3 times and it NEVER gets old. i absolutely love the quick thinking and exciting heists she pulls off to get her revenge. sydney sheldon has written some amazing books but this is by far the most exciting and BEST one.

I read this book more than ten years ago and it is still one of my favorites. Sidney Sheldon's travels speak volumes in his works. He brings in other cultures so naturally and the characters are more developed because of it. Tracy and Jeff are con artists who share a relationship that grows as they compete to get the next con job. Great personalities in this book and their stand offs are memorable. Great read!

I wasn't much of a book reader to begin with, but my mother read this book and told me that I absolutely must read it. So I gave it a chance and I could not find myself to put it down. It's was the first book we read by Sheldon, and now we have most of his other collections. If you like suspense, mystery and revenge, this is the book that's 'an absolute must have'.

I guess this has been one of the best books ive ever read. Sidney Sheldon has a really interesting way of keeping you in suspense, i think everyone one should get the chance to enjoy Sheldons writting.

After reading the other reviews I see that my opinion is in the majority! I have been a long time Sheldon fan and have re-read all of his books many times. This one is my favorite and I would just say this -- IF you love good fast moving fiction and IF you never read another book in your life -- READ THIS ONE!! I like Grisham but Sheldon far exceeds him. Only sad thing is that Sidney is past 85 now and slowing down with his writing. If you haven't already --visit his website for details of the next book and a picture.

Ever since the first page of this book, I haven't been able to put it down. I notice myself reading this at all hours of the night, just to see what is going to happen next. I'm almost at the end, I can't wait to see what the end brings!!

Sheldon wrote some good books, but this isn't one of them. The characters are one-dimensional, and the "one trick pony" plot is totally redundant and boring throughout the last half of the novel. by aj west

What a great story! How to make the impossible possible. I couldn't put it down.

Vacation reading was invented for this book. Absolute 80s epic-drama. Betrayal, sex and revenge in copius doses, what's not to love. If the Lifetime movie channel hasn't done this movie, albiet sanitised for network TV, they are not serious.Pick it up and enjoy.
