Welcome to 'Not Your Usual Suspects' Blog
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me …a super cool, hip new blog to share with fans, family and friends!
Welcome to our new blog run by a group of seasoned and debut authors of romantic suspense and mystery. We’re an eclectic group with diverse interests and a thrilling range of stories including procedural, humorous, sexy, nail-biting, romantic and cozy. For the next twelve days leading up to Christmas, each one of us will blog on a topic near and dear to our hearts. After that, we’ll be blogging three days a week, offering you interviews, freebies, writing insights, thoughts on the different sub-genres within mystery and romantic suspense, and tidbits from our past and forthcoming novels. Take a minute and peruse our bios, current novels and forthcoming releases. Several of us also have audio books available for your listening enjoyment.
To start things off, I’m interested in finding out what romantic suspense or mystery books were your favorites in 2010. I’m always on the lookout for new authors to read and I love to give books as presents for Christmas. I’m hoping one of you will suggest something perfect I can buy as a last minute present. As a thank you, I will randomly choose one winner from the comments to win a copy of my latest novel, No One Lives Twice, a humorous cyber-sleuthing mystery caper released by Carina Press in August 2010.
Here are a few of my favorite romantic suspense/mystery reads for 2010: Fantasy in Death and Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb, The First Rule by Robert Crais, The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner, In Plain View by J. Wachowski (one of the bloggers on this site – woot!) and Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen. What great mystery and romantic suspense book(s) did you read this year that you would wholeheartedly recommend?
Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see a lot of you in the next year. Happy Holidays to all!
