TWO LETHAL LIES BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
TWO LETHAL LIES
BY ANNIE SOLOMON


ABOUT THE BOOK:

A love to die for... On the run since his daughter was born, Mitch Turner has concealed a truth so dangerous, its discovery could jeopardize both their lives. But when a series of shocking murders hits their new found home, the trail leads straight to Mitch. With the police out for blood and his daughter ripped from his arms, he has nowhere to turn--until a beautiful stranger offers her help. Neesy Brown has made mistakes in her life, yet she refuses to believe this mysterious man is a killer. There's a strength in his broad shoulders that draws her to him and a weariness in his eyes that she longs to ease.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

A native New Yorker, RITA-winning author Annie Solomon has been dreaming up stories since she was ten. After a twelve-year career in advertising, where she rose to Vice President and Head Writer at a mid-size agency, she abandoned the air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps of her professional life for her first love—romance. An avid knitter, she now lives in Nashville with her husband and daughter. www.anniesolomon.com

AUTHOR ARTICLE:
Annie Solomon answers a common question from fans and I hope you find her article as interesting as I did.

One of the questions readers...

By Annie Solomon

One of the questions readers always ask a writer is “Where do you get your ideas?” If you write suspense, like I do, the query is often accompanied by a narrow-eyed but expectant look, as though the questioner is hoping I’ll lean over and whisper, “From my former life in the CIA,” or “Back when I was undercover for the NYPD,” or “I'd tell you but then I’d have to kill you.” So I quickly change the subject before I have to confess that I get my ideas from newspapers, the latest Radiohead song, or a dream I once had.

My current book, Tell Me No Lies, is no exception. I’ve never been a cop in a small city in the Hudson Valley, or an international business wheeler dealer. I’ve never been to Russia or met Donald Trump.

But I did read a book of firsthand accounts by cops on the job. One guy talked about being afraid. That underneath the uniform, cops always wear a thin layer of fear. I got to wondering: What happens when someone’s job puts him in life-and-death situations of which he’s secretly terrified? And so homicide detective Hank Bonner was born.

And how did I get to my heroine, the wealthy, mysterious, and bent-on-revenge Alexandra Jane Baker? Through research for my previous suspense novel, Dead Ringer. In a book about the new Russian robber barons, I read a small tidbit about a couple of suicides and some missing Russian millions. Sasha Baker and Tell Me No Lies sprouted from there.And if you’re wondering about that Hudson Valley city, it’s called Sokanan. To save myself more research, I just made it up. It’s my own twisted version of someplace like Poughkeepsie, where my daughter went to college. (And it’s one of the worst-run cities on the planet. Why else do so many people keep dying there?) The name, by the way, is Algonquin and means “rain.”Well, I’ve said all I can. There’s more—but if I told you everything, my editor would kill me.

I've read most of Annie's books, but I haven't read "Tell Me No Lies." Hank seems likes an interesting hero.

I am interested, but not intrigued, by the combination of romance and mystery - always thought that mystery goes better with reality.

I can't wait to read this book! I loved One Deadly Sin, so I'm sure this will also be a hit.

I'm interested to hear about Mitch's secret. The longer it's kept, chances are the more danger he'll be in!

I've read a couple of Solomon's books, but Blind Curve sounds good and I haven't read it yet!

Thanks for hosting!
