I’ve been writing suspense novels for almost 20 years now. While they’re technically branded “thrillers,” they aren’t about super spies or daring globetrotters, the sort of larger than life characters who might expect to find themselves in a perilous situation on any given day. No, I write psychological domestic suspense novels about ordinary people who are going about their daily business, close to home, when they find themselves plunged into extraordinary circumstances. To me, and to my loyal readers who can easily picture themselves in my protagonists’ shoes, nothing is more frightening than life-threatening danger crossing the threshold into your safe haven.
This week’s best new releases are pulse pounding thrillers that will leave you on the edge of your seat!
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
Touted as the new Gone Girl, this debut novel has enough twists and turns to keep us satisfied. Colin Thatcher was supposed to follow the plan, kidnap and deliver Mia Dennett, the daughter of prominent Chicago socialites.
Last weekend, I found myself sleeping under a super moon, on a sailboat anchored in the river near the Chesapeake. The boat belongs to my guy, Ted, and I’m trying to learn how to sail with him. While upon it, I found myself trying to apply information I had recently read in a couple articles.
Recently Amazon announced its new feature Kindle Unlimited which has been aptly named the ‘Netflix for Books.” For the price of $9.99 per month, you have access to over 600,000 books that you check-out from Amazon but don’t necessarily own.
When this feature was announced I was rather impressed. I had the mental image of a digital version of Belle’s library from Beauty and the Beast. Who wouldn’t love that?
