I am happy to host author Brenda Whiteside today so she can tell you about her new book, which is part of a four-book series. I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s on my TBR list. I love this cover!
Thank you, Jan, for inviting me to share my new book with your followers. I am deeply grateful.
TURNING BITS OF MY LIFE INTO FICTION
Wild Horse Peaks is a four-book romantic suspense series set in Arizona, my home state, with the sequel set in Austria, a country I loved visiting. The characters in each book are either related or friends. The stories follow twisty paths of danger and suspense: a search to learn about birth parents who died…or were murdered, a mystery writer stalked by someone acting out her murder scenes, a politically driven madman chasing the last member of a family, her rockstar boyfriend, and a good old western land grab turned nasty. The sequel is an Austrian fairytale turned nightmare. And in the midst of all the mayhem—love
Each book holds a piece of my life. I think authors often weave in facets of themselves into their stories. The Art of Love and Murder has a Native American thread (I’m proud of my Indian blood) and a tie to the art community (my first idea for a career and why I went to college). In the second book, Southwest of Love and Murder, the heroine is a lusty, free-spirited author (my alter-ego). The hero in The Power of Love and Murder is a rocker and just might resemble my son years back, while one of the hero’s exploits is taken from the pages of my brother’s life. In the fourth book of the series, The Deep Well of Love and Murder, the only tie to the real me is the dog, Perro. He looks like my beloved Rusty, who died a few years ago.
Although the books are all connected, you can read them as standalones.
The Art of Love and Murder, Wild Horse Peaks book 1
A woman searching for her past. A sheriff hiding in his present. Their future together threatened by murder.
Forty-three years after the airplane crash she survived killed her parents, Lacy Dahl is looking for answers. When her research uncovers secrets about the mother she never knew and disputes the identity of her father, someone is willing to murder to keep her discoveries hidden.
Sheriff Chance Meadowlark is still haunted by the death of his wife and the revenge he unleashed in the name of justice. When he meets Lacy, he is determined not to become involved, but their pasts make that impossible. Saving Lacy may be his only redemption.
Just as she begins to believe the present is more important than her past, Chance’s connection and a murder spin her deeper into danger and further from love. When the truth is revealed, will the revelations free Lacy and Chance…or destroy them?
