MIRA Monday: April is the Cruelest Month
by the Harlequin MIRA Editors
At MIRA, we are proud to publish outstanding women’s fiction and romance. But that’s not all we do—we also have thrilling, suspenseful stories that will remind you why “April is the cruelest month”—because you’re going to spend it on the edge of your seat!
We asked our editors to tell you about a few of the authors who write in this vein and the new books they have coming out this month.
WHIRLWIND by Rick Mofina
Not only is Rick Mofina a wonderful author to work with, but his books are fantastic. WHIRLWIND is no exception–the start of a new series, it’s a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride featuring an incredibly relatable heroine. Kate Page is just trying to make a life for herself and her young daughter, but as a reporter, she’s up against cutthroat ladder-climbers willing to stoop to any level to get a good story. What makes Kate exceptional is that she stands her ground, refusing to sacrifice her dignity or anyone else’s as she races to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of a baby after a tornado rips through Dallas, TX. I hope you’ll love Kate and WHIRLWIND as much as I do!
SAFE KEEPING by Barbara Taylor Sissel
The thing that I love about Barbara is that her stories always focus on the families at the heart of a crime. She seamlessly balances a taut suspense story with the compelling, emotional drama of a family in jeopardy. In SAFE KEEPING, Emily Lebay’s grown son Tucker is accused of a terrible crime. She’s certain there’s been a tragic misunderstanding, so she and her daughter Lissa set out to prove he’s innocent. But nothing could’ve prepared them for the long-hidden secrets they’ll uncover. If you’re a fan of Chevy Stevens or Tana French, you’re going to love reading Barbara’s work!
So whether it’s thrillers or literary suspense, remember—you can find it at MIRA among our brightest stars in fiction.
