Have you ever shivered for no reason? Not cold. Not scared. Just shivered.
My Grandma used to say that was someone walking over your grave. Did you shiver at that? I know it sounds pretty macabre. Especially for a grandmother to say to a child. But she was from a different generation. One that had all kinds of superstitious sayings.
Fated Love has a more subtle paranormal element than many books It touches on those déjà vu moments. And those shivers-for-no-reason.
… the feeling that makes you look over your shoulder. Even when you know no one is there.
What is it about the unknown that fascinates us so much? And in a way that we can’t run from? We watch the movie with a pillow or blanket for comfort….and to hide our eyes. But we peek anyway. I do the same thing when reading a paranormal book. I have my ‘safety zone’ set up before I start reading. But read I do. A lot.
Circumstance bring Sarah and Jake together. Memphis is a big city. And Fate brought them together in a spectacular way. The minute they meet, we know something is going on above and beyond the arson investigation. Something that could change them forever.
In the playlist I created for Fated Love, one of my song choices is Superstition. Do you know the words?
“Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say
Very superstitious, the Devils’ o his way..”
Can you spot the Devil in Fated Love?
Sarah Cameron’s life changes forever the night her art gallery burns to the ground under suspicious circumstances. She’s picking up the pieces and trying to understand what happened with the help of arson investigator, Jake Riordan – who’s far too attractive for her to concentrate and gave her that undeniable sense of deja vu. Then the stalking incidents begin. Who could want her dead? And is it tied to the fire at the gallery?
Jake is convinced he knows who’s responsible for the fire. But is he too close to Sarah to see the truth? After he’s pulled off the case for being too personally involved, Jake convinces Sarah to travel to New Orleans with him to escape the stalker and investigate some mysteries from his own past. In New Orleans, a diary and a set of old pictures reveal long hidden secrets that are coming home to roost.
Can Jake save Sarah before fire consumes them and the wheel of fate turns yet again?
Susan Boles Bio
Susan calls McNairy County, TN her home ground even though she has moved away. It was here, at Bethel Springs Junior High School that she began her writing career with two friends. They formed their own little writers group that was so secret they were the only ones who knew it existed. She still has some of the stories they wrote carefully preserved in a loose leaf binder and tucked away for safety.
She has worked in retail management, briefly for the Census Bureau and for many years in the investment/insurance industry in the regulatory compliance arena. All of which are left brain activities. So she exercises her right brain activity with reading and writing…just to keep both sides even.
Reading has been a passion since she was very young. As a toddler, her mother read to her from her ‘baby books’ and her Mother tells a story about her holding one of them upsidedown and ‘reading’ by repeating the story verbatim from memory.
Susan is a multi-genre hybrid author. Her first novel, Kate’s Pride, is a historical women’s fiction set in West Tennessee in the aftermath of the Civil War. The novel is loosely based on her own Great Grandmother and published under the pen name Renee Russell.
Her second novel, Fated Love, is a contemporary paranormal romantic suspense (with a twist of paranormal) set in Memphis, TN.
Book number three is the first in a cozy mystery series. Death of a Wolfman, A Lily Gayle Lambert Mystery, is set for release mid-August 2016. It’s Murder, She Wrote meets Dukes of Hazzard.
