First, the River Road tour update–only one stop today. There’s a promo over at She Wolf Reads, with another chance to enter for the tour-wide eBook and gift card prizes (see the righthand column for a list of giveaways), and the commenter prizes of $25 gift cards. Check back on Saturday and Sunday for more dates. Saturday’s is a promo stop, but on Sunday I finally get DJ to sit down for a rare interview. She’s been letting the guys do the talking but now she’s going to dish on them!
Now, today I’m happy to welcome one of my, er, Susannah Sandlin’s fellow Montlake Romance authors, Toni Anderson. Toni’s new romantic suspense, Dangerous Waters, is burning up the Kindles over at Amazon so if you want a break from All Things Paranormal, check it out! Also, Toni is generously offering one commenter a copy of her book Sea of Suspicion. Read on for details….
Toni was born and raised in Shropshire, England, did her PhD in marine biology in St. Andrews, Scotland, and now lives in Canada. Dangerous Waters is her fourth novel. You can learn more about Toni at her website…and by reading the Q&A, of course!
And now, welcome, Toni!
Give us the “elevator pitch” for your latest work? Sergeant Holly Rudd arrives in the coastal community of Bamfield after local divers discover a body with a knife jutting from its chest in the waters of Barkley Sound. As she investigates the crime, Holly soon realizes the sleepy town is rife with secrets. But what unsettles her most is the residents’ insistence that she bears a striking resemblance to the victim of a murder from three decades earlier. She shrugs off the uncanny likeness as a coincidence. But her simmering attraction to Finn Carver, one of the divers who discovered the corpse, isn’t so easy to ignore.
DANGEROUS WATERS is a sexy murder mystery/romantic suspense set in a beautiful remote region of Canada. Insomnia meets Prime Suspect. I suck at elevator pitches J. (Suz: I thought it sounded good–I’m a sucker for “small town rife with secrets.”)

Thanks so much for having me here today, Suzanne. To help celebrate the release of my new book, DANGEROUS WATERS, I’m giving away a copy of one of my backlist titles to one of your commenters. SEA OF SUSPICION is another Romantic Suspense/ Mystery but this time set in Scotland, where I used to live.
Thanks, Toni! To be entered for the giveaway, just leave a comment. Have you read any romantic suspense lately (or an emerging genre, paranormal romantic suspense)? This contest will run through Saturday, December 1. Now….comment!
