Do You Love Thrillers?

When I was Annette Lyon's critique partner, she shared her idea with me for a suspense novel with two timelines. Two women who are tied together by murder with so many twists you can hardly catch a breath! It was such a brilliant idea, but I knew it would be tough to pull it off. As she wrote the manuscript and I got to read and critique the chapters, I was amazed at how it all came together. 

That manuscript was picked up by a national publisher and the release date is TOMORROW! I'm so happy for her and am thrilled that all of her hard work paid off. She is having a launch party and if you are local, you should totally go!

A librarian investigates her husband’s dark past and winds up dead. Now it’s up to her best friend to uncover the truth.

Becca’s life is turned upside down when she finds Jenn dead in the bathtub. Soon she begins to unspool the secrets Jenn kept in life, including a troubled marriage to Rick and two dead wives in his past. The more Becca learns, the more determined she becomes to get justice for Jenn, even if the clues surrounding her death aren’t quite adding up.…

Over a year before her death, Jenn begins to notice her husband acting strangely. Using her skills as a librarian, she digs into Rick’s past—and falls down a rabbit hole far deeper and darker than she bargained for. She’s already beaten the odds by living longer than his other dead wives. But now she fears her time is up.

This page-turning story of marriage, friendship, and motherhood is a first foray into thriller by USA Today bestseller Annette Lyon.

Here's the back copy:

An arranged marriage was never what Callum Darrington, future Duke of Edinbane, imagined for himself. But with the well-being of his uncle's family hanging in the balance, Callum strikes a bargain with his father and reluctantly agrees to tie himself to a stranger. The reality of the lovely Lady Katherine is more than he could have hoped for, and their wedding heralds a bright new future for the couple—until Callum discovers his father deliberately deceived him. Callum lashes out, setting in motion heartbreak not even he could have foreseen.

Four years later, Callum is ready to piece together the marriage he so carelessly destroyed. But their years apart have hardened Kate: she is not the naive and trusting young woman she once was, and she has no intention of allowing Callum a foothold in her life or her heart. Despite her coldness, Callum works to regain her trust and rebuild their marriage, not realizing Kate harbors a secret that could change everything—and this time, there is much more at stake than just her heart.
