Remember last week how excited I was cause I got a whole box of books to review and not one of them was suspense? I spoke too soon. The very next day Violet Dawn arrived. This is the second book by Brandilyn Collins that has come my way.
With fear and trepidation (okay, I'm exaggerating--but not much) I opened the novel yesterday evening and read the first few chapters. The question is: what would YOU do if you couldn't sleep at two in the morning and decided to relax in your hot tub...and discovered a dead body in it? And if, for some reason (which I'm sure I'll eventually figure out) you don't want to call the police, don't want your picture on the news? What would you do? Well, I can tell you what Paige would do but it would be more fun if you read the book yourself!
For the record, Brandilyn has written something like eleven novels with the trademark Seatbelt Suspense. Read her books, but don't forget to breathe. In her publishing journey, she's learned a few tricks of the trade as far as web promotion goes. (I mean, look at me promoting her books, and they're not even my favorite genre!) Later this week I want to have a closer look at her promotion because I think there's a lot we can all learn from it. For now, though--if you're curious--head over to Scenes and Beans, the virtual blog for the fictional characters from this series of novels about the small town of Kanner Lake, Idaho.
