Release day: Burning Lies
Today is the official release of Burning Lies by Helene Young (paperback, Penguin). Here’s the blurb:
Kaitlyn Scott is searching for the truth about her husband’s death, even if that means revisiting the most painful day of her life. But what she uncovers is a criminal willing to stop at nothing to keep his secret.
Ryan O’Donnell, an enigmatic undercover cop, is investigating arson attacks when he is drawn into Kaitlyn’s world. He tries to fight his attraction for her, hoping the case might put his own demons to rest, but it only threatens to push him over the edge.
With Kaitlyn and Ryan on a collision course, the arsonist seizes the chance to settle some old scores. As the Atherton Tableland burns, the three of them are caught in a fiery dance of danger and desire, and not everyone will come out alive.
Set in Australia’s tropical far north, this is an explosive story of peril and passion by the author voted by the Romance Writers of Australia as the most popular novelist of the year, and by the Australian Romance Readers Association as the most popular romantic suspense novelist two years running.
Helene dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Several years ago my husband and I were caught in a major bushfire south of Sydney. I’d never been so close to a wild fire before and it was terrifying. We felt powerless to help, with no resources, no local knowledge and no training for the situation. When the power went out and the community was cut off I could feel the anxiety in those around me. I could only imagine how the fire fighters felt trying to control it. An arsonist, who was later arrested, was also a volunteer fire fighter and that made me want to explore the psyche of someone who’s capable of doing such a brutal crime.
