Elizabeth McKenna's love of books reaches back to her childhood, where her tastes ranged from Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys to Stephen King's horror stories.

She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).

Then I was watching one of my favorite movies, BBC's version of And Then There Was None, and something just clicked. The story will be a departure from my other books, as it will be more murder mystery than romance, but there will definitely be romance and a satisfying ending.(less)
