BACK COVER: As Danielle Kemp walks out of her downtown Nashville condominium, she gets the eerie feeling someone is watching her.

3. I want it to be a clean read but exciting, holding interest till the end.

Mary, that's exactly what I look for in a book!

I love the smoky hazy uncertainty of the cover as well as the eye-pleasing blue-green cover.

Thanks, MJSH! As the author, I'm thrilled with the way the cover conveys the story. 

I look for characters that have an odd sense of humor, a hero and heroine that are willing to die for each other, a conflict, dead body and a resolution.

That's an interesting list, Sonnetta! It kind of sounds like a book plot in the making!

When I'm looking for a romantic suspense, I want something with no vulgar language or explicit sexual scenes.  I also look for books that are not cliff hangers. I hate feeling that I've read only half a story and have to purchase an additional book or books in order to read an ending.

I'm with you on the cliff hangers, Cathy. Deadly Commitment is the first book in a three-book series but each book has a distinct ending. If you read it, I hope you will enjoy it!

Our family spent a vacation in Nashville when our kids were much younger. We enjoyed the walking tour and got to see lots of interesting things.

I just finished reading No Turning Back by Katie Vorreiter. A great suspense about a church group going to San Quentin to lead worship and play baseball against the inmates. Shortly after arriving a riot breaks out and several church members are taken by the inmates and held hostage. One of them is a serial killer! Nail biting suspense until the very end.

Gail, I hope you can visit Nashville again sometime. I've lived here since right after college, and the city has changed a lot during that time. There's even more to see now!

I love this book cover - the colors and the hazyness and the dark shadow of the woman.  Sounds wonderful!  

When I'm looking for a suspense, romantic thriller I look first at the publisher or on the inside page to see if there is a Bible reference.  If not, I usually won't read it because I find so often they aren't "clean" and I really don't want to fill my head with more junk than it has to have.

Thanks for your thought on that, Kris! My writer tagline is Writing to the Rhythm of a New Song, which references Psalm 96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. (kjv) It's my hope that my stories will inspire and remind readers about our God Who loves them. He is the reason for the 'new song' in our lives.
