A DIFFERENT TWIST

One contest ends and a new one begins, but the new one has a different twist. Winners usually choose from books I've reviewed, but the winner for June will receive one I've written.

The winners of the May Wish List contest have been chosen. They are Scott Gail and Ann Mooney. Congratulations! Scott Gail commented on my review of The Alias on Meridian and Ann Mooney is a follower. Each winner should send me a list of five or more LDS novels he/she would like to own and I'll choose one of them to send to each winner. Contact me at bhansen22 at msn dot com before Monday. Please include your mailing address.

Now for the new contest. First the prize. Instead of asking for a wish list this month, the winners will each receive a copy of If I Should Die, my new romantic suspense novel which should appear on bookstore shelves within the next week. It is available for e-readers beginning June 6. (If you win and want a different book that's okay, just let me know.) Same rules as before; comment on any blog, become a follower, comment on my blogs on the V-Formation, or comment on a book review I write for Meridian Magazine anytime in June.

Here is the back liner blurb:

IF I SHOULD DIE
One morning on a routine jog, Kallene’s running partner, Linda, confides that she’s filing for divorce. The next morning, she’s gone without a trace, leaving behind her frightened young daughter. Since Linda’s enraged husband refuses to notify the police, Kallene steps in to initiate a missing person search, not knowing it would soon become a murder investigation—or that she’d soon fall for the charming lead detective. With Linda’s handsome brother also on her mind, Kallene must navigate the rapids of a double romance as well as the deepening suspicion in her upscale Utah neighborhood. Intrigue turns to danger as Kallene faces the consequences of hasty judgments. And when startling new evidence casts Linda’s murder as the work of a determined killer, Kallene needs the intervention of unlikely heroes to avoid being the next victim.

This book sounds so Interesting and Exciting.
My favorite books are Suspence, and romance, and this book has both! I also know that I can trust these romance books not to be nasty, but still be romantic and fun.
Congrats!

I really liked this book. I like that it took me a little longer than usual to figure it out. I think it could have benefited from an epilogue. I always like to know more of what happened later. Anyway, thank you for another great read.

I wanted to share this thought that it truly is a small world. I met you a few years back, soon after Code Red was released at our Ward's Literary "Homemaking" meeting. Your Sister in Law arranged for you to come and talk to all of us. Suzanne was also my Visiting Teacher, and though she has passed on now, I still remember her with fondness! What got me thinking was, I was sitting in my new ward, in the same town, and an older man that shares the same pew had your newest book. I mentioned that I was excited that it had been released. His wife, a sweet and dear woman, told me that he was once your teacher. You can't get much smaller than that, at least for me! Thank you so much for your books! You are a true talent!
