Celebrating Mystery/Thriller Week!

description










I’ve read mysteries since I was a child. Nancy Drew comes to mind immediately. And I read those books to my children and to my grandchildren. There’s something about trying to figure out who did it, and about looking for clues, that’s fun and inspires imagination.

As I got older I found a love of Sherlock Holmes, Robert Ludlum’s Bourne series, Laurie R King’s Mary Russell series and so many other wonderful mystery and thrillers. I write with Karen Rose who is an amazing thriller writer and love how evil her villains are.

I consider my books to be thrillers even though they are paranormal romance. To me, a “thriller” is a story that causes your heart to race and adrenaline to flow. You may know who the bad guy is, but you don’t know what he’s going to do next. I love stories like that.

This year I have a thriller coming out May 25th - Shadow Storm. With assassins that can travel using shadows you can see where the thriller aspect would come in, but more than that, I have some surprises in this novel that skirt the dark side of the genre and hope to keep readers on edge while the hero and heroine fight the mob, a family secret and deal with their Romeo/Juliette style relationship.

On the “Mystery” side I’ve written Murder at Sunrise Lake which challenges readers to put the clues together and guess who the villain is. I had such a great time with this. I just hope no one sees my search history because I had to find clever ways to kill people! Lol

I’d love to know what mystery or thriller novels or writers you love! Let’s see what we have in common!

Maureen Gianinio I love the thriller/suspense plot threads in your novels! You come up with some amazing evil antagonists, along with edge of the seat moments!
Read Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew with my dad, along with Sherlock Holmes. So they will always be special to me. And thanks to you i discovered The Mary Russell Series, Karen Rose. I enjoy the CS Harris' Sebastian St Cyr series. Just read The Business of Blood by Kerrigan Byrne! The Alienist and The Dante Club. Stephen King and Dean Koontz, Some Gillian Flynn...i really have a long list😄

Leslie Ford I have to agree with you Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes was what I would read growing up for a good mystery, now for a good Thriller I read and reread the Torpedo Ink series, they get my heart a racing everytime I read them.

It's interesting how our tastes change. Do you ever go back and read any Sherlock Holmes? Have you tried the Mary Russell series?

Jacqueline I've read two of the "Nuala" series by Harriet Steele and I'm currently getting my echo dot to read me book 6 in the mornings. Since they're stand alone they don't have to be read in order. They cantre around Inspecter Shanti De Silva of the small police station in a fictional hill town in 1930s Ceylon, and his English wife. They remind me of a cross between Agatha Christie and a book of short stories I once read by Somerset Maughn. Murder mysteries with a touch of oriental spice!

That sounds like a wonderful series!

EJ Wake I used to read and watch the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen mysteries as a kid. My mom also got us the Clue board game. I don't read much mystery anymore, but I do love a good detective drama and movie every now and then. I also played Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter video game that challenged my way of thinking. Still, I'm a huge fan of the paranormal and fantasy genres of books, and action movies. So part of me wants Murder at Sunrise Lake to tie into the Dark Series through family (like the Scarletti Curse), though having it tied to a different series or no series at all is not bad either. I and my grandmother love your books and she is a huge fan of mystery books (i.e. James Patterson), and I know that if I got this for her for Christmas, she would love it!

Jean Morgan I started out with the Bobbsie Twins, then to Nancy Drew. Dick Francis was/is my first love, he and his wife Mary crafted some amazing thrillers based in the horse racing world in England. I love Patricia Briggs, her Mercy novels and Omega novels are awesome. But Christine, no one writes like you. Love all your series and I hope you have a long, healthy and prosperous life!
