5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE by Suzanne Johnson

5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE by Suzanne Johnson

Posted December 2, 2016 by Jennifer in Blog Tour, Giveaway | 4 Comments

  5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE   Scenes are hard-working things. They all serve a function in a novel: to move the story along from one point to the next. They are the building blocks upon which any work of fiction is created. If they don’t do their job properly, the story stalls or heads off in the wrong direction. They have to be herded like sheep. But like any flock of sheep, some scenes are the favorites of the shepherd—or border collie, or novelist, in this case. Here are five of my favorites from BELLE CHASSE (sans spoilers), in no particular order. 1) Surgery by Dr. Strangepirate. Heroine DJ has a bullet in her thigh that needs removing. There is no anesthesia. There is […]

    It’s Halloween and this day is a challenge for both Annalyse Reynolds and Holt Miller but for different reasons. She’s emerging from a 5-year hibernation following a personal tragedy and he’s still a bit stuck following his. Their chance encounter has seismic results.   I won’t tell you any of the details of this story because the journey and discoveries are frankly delicious. This isn’t a predictable story by any measure and that kept me eagerly turning the pages. I loved their relationship, which begins tentatively and cautiously for very good reasons. Annalyse’s blog posts are deftly interspersed throughout, creating a perfect emotional pitch and communication crutch that made the story even more interesting. Holt’s gradual growth was realistic and authentic.   There […]

Deceiving Bella by Cate Beauman: Excerpt & Giveaway

    The Inspiration Behind Deceiving Bella   It’s no secret that I’m a crime television junky. I love watching anything that might bring about an idea for another story. Several months ago, I found a series on Netflix about La Cosa Nostra—or the five mafia families of New York. I was immediately drawn to the information I was observing. Within minutes, I knew I wanted to weave together an adventure that would bring Isabella Colby and Reed McKinley face to face with organized crime. I hope you’ll enjoy reading Deceiving Bella as much as I loved writing it.     Excerpt     Chapter 1: Bella drew a heart on the back of a pale pink envelope while she sat at the small table […]

   I love the Bloodbound series. I adore the battles, the romance, the humor and the characters. It surprised me because of the historical feel. I don’t always enjoy historical. Read this series in order. Here is my review of the second book, BloodForged.  I found myself almost hopeless after this book, everything was so dire – a matter of life and death. So I was afraid to read this final book of the trilogy. TERRIFIED.  I worried my favorite characters would be hurt or die.  I worried the romances would end up with couples I didn’t ship. I was a mess! The story began as frightening as I expected. My anxiety continued at high levels. I even peeked at the end to just see if […]
