I’m very pleased to welcome back Jerri Hines, writing as Colleen Connally. Jerri has a brand new and pulse-pounding romantic suspense just hitting the shelves this week, and she’s here to tell us about it.
The Allure of Romantic Suspense
What’s your favorite genre to read? When you read romance you enter into a world of fantasy where you know there will be a happy ending. Usually it means a few hours of escape from the real world around us. But what happens when you add a bit of mystery and suspense?
Doesn’t a good mystery make you want to cuddle up under a blanket? Who doesn’t like the suspense of a whodunit? Adding a bit of suspense keeps the reader entertained until the end. From a young age, we strive to figure out the mysteries surrounding us. From a young age, we are presented with puzzles to solve. We are teased with information that makes us such for answers. Think about when you struggle to figure out how to make the pieces fit to your puzzle or even doing a crossword puzzle. Our minds love to be engaged and challenged. That’s what a good mystery does. It captures our imagination.
Fragmented delivers— a challenging mystery, intrigue, danger and romance. Fragmented holds an enthralling storyline that will grip you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the end. What would you do to protect the ones you love? What extremes would you go to?
