Today I am so happy to welcome author Nike Chillemi. Thanks for visiting and welcome!
To my mind, the holidays are the perfect time to give a murder mystery as a gift. Veterans Day just passed and my debut novel BURNING HEARTS (historical romantic suspense with lots of action) was very topical for that day.
It’s hero, Lorne Kincade fought under General Patton in France in World War II. By all appearances, he was a motorcycle courier riding a military Harley Davidson. In reality, Lt. Lorne Kincade carried out covert mission that dove tailed with Operation Marseilles. Many times while on assignment, Lorne and his best buddy Grady Carter hid in the catacombs beneath Marseilles wondering if their cover had been blown. Grady died in an explosion set by Nazi troops and their French Underground contact was found dead, tortured.
Lorne returned to the states disillusioned by the horrors he witnessed, but when he met Erica Brogna, a gal with hair the color of mink, things started looking up for him. Of course, they first had to catch an arsonist and murderer.
With Thanksgiving around the corner, I can’t help but think of the warmth of the Brogna family in BURNING HEARTS. Their house always has the aroma of something good coming from the kitchen. And Mrs. B is known throughout the entire village of Sanctuary Point for her strudel.
If you are not the type to rush out the day after Thanksgiving for “black Friday shopping,” as I’m not…I have a few recommendations for making that day “Forensics Friday.” Here are a few suspense novels you might consider curling up with. Of course, I hope you consider BURNING HEARTS first.
J. Mark Bertrand wrote an outstanding detective novel with his first in the Roland March series. He’s outdone himself with book two, PATTERN OF WOUNDS. Amazon.
If you like reading about the Secret Service, Tammy Doherty’s historical suspense novel CELTIC KNOT takes you back to the origins of the agency.
If you like a sweet romance in your suspense novels and have a hankering for strawberry shortcake, try LAST RESORT by BJ Robinson. Amazon. http://tinyurl.com/73rt8bb Barners & Noble. http://tinyurl.com/7fwxyw9
