Yeah…this is probably what B.E. is doing right about now–freaking out. Not only is Friday the 13th (and a very fitting day for the excitement!), B.E.’s debut suspense novel releases today. I was lucky. I got to beta read DYING EMBERS. I chortled over the car-b-que, the “old flames,” and enjoyed the hell out of the twisty-turns at the end of the book. NO SPOILERS! You have to read it for yourself. This is a damn fine book. And yes, I bought a copy and plan to reread it because…hello! Beta read. That’s like even before an ARC. I know there have been a few changes, though probably small. I still want to enjoy the story and the characters all over again.
If I were doing a high concept of this book, it would be: “Criminal Minds” takes a road trip with “The Mentalist” to find a whacked-out serial killer. It’s psychological police procedural at it’s best. Here’s the blurb:
Good girls don’t play with fire.
But Emma Sweet is tired of being a good girl. When she catches her husband cheating, she hits on the perfect plan to pay back all the men who ever broke her heart. Revenge isn’t as simple as seducing her old lovers and tossing a match, but watching them burn is deliciously satisfying.
The one time in her life Agent Jace Douglas wasn’t a good girl, she lost her family. Now she would rather run far and fast when it comes to fire. Too bad for her, she can’t walk away from a case where fire is the killer’s signature. Jace needs to face her fears and catch this murderer before the flames of her past—and the smoldering heat she feels for Detective Ben Yancy—reduce her life, her career and her self-control to ash.
Now go forth and get your copy! It’s available now for KINDLE and will be available in print soon!
Congrats, B.E. You done good, kiddo!
