Enjoy Thrilling Stories with New Romantic Suspense Reads
by Karen Green
There’s no doubt that autumn is a romantic season, with the beauty of the natural world bringing us joy but also nudging us inside, where we start to nest for the winter and incorporate all things cozy back into our life. It’s the season to cuddle up and keep warm, as the shadows grow longer…
Shadows that also signify fall’s other grand characteristic: the undeniably spooky pall that casts its net over the season. Autumn is transitional, bringing to mind the transition between light and dark, this world and perhaps another. And of course we celebrate both of these aspects of our favorite season with festivals and fairs, pumpkin patches and Halloween.
We lucky readers have the perfect way to welcome the transitional season, with books that bring together the very best of fall. Take a look at these stories that bridge all of the romance of the season with the more mysterious aspects that seem to occur in the shadows.
Risk Everything (The Risk Series: A Bree and Tanner Thriller) by Janie Crouch
Autumn can feel very mysterious, with questions that seem to have no answers and the natural world keeping us on our toes with changes and moods it can be hard to predict.
Match that unpredictable mood with this story about a mysterious fire, an unknown threat and a couple trying to unravel a dangerous plot that has more twists and turns than a corn maze in October.
Killer Amnesia by Sherri Shackelford
Is there anything more chilling than not remembering who you are and feeling vulnerable to every manner of unknown threat?
For one small-town deputy, keeping an amnesiac safe while she tries to rediscover who she is leads them both to a trail of secrets that a killer will do anything to keep hidden.
Reunited by the Badge (To Serve and Seduce) by Deborah Fletcher Mello
Does anything send a chill up the spine faster than a threat from something that we can’t see or identify? Something that seems big, abstract and indestructible?
So there’s nothing more chilling than the prospect of a large, faceless corporation working to harm the very people they are supposed to help, as a doctor and his ex, a lawyer, have discovered. Can they uncover the reason that patients are dying before putting themselves right into the path of danger?
The Stalking (Krewe of Hunters) by Heather Graham
Autumn certainly likes to show off her mysteries and thrills and there is no more perfect vehicle for paranormal possibilities than Halloween, when, just for a moment, we once again believe in ghosts.
For the Krewe of Hunters, ghosts are always present, sometimes looking to harm and sometimes offering to help. In New Orleans, where ghosts inhabit every corner of the bayou, a killer emerges. Are dark spirits the perpetrators or just the inspiration?
