Release day: Murder Most Unusual
Today is the official release of Murder Most Unusual by Michelle Somers (ebook and print, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Romance novelist Stacey Holland doesn’t believe in love; marriage to a manipulator taught her as much. So she hides away in her fictional world, penning the perfect romance, intertwining the perfect crime. Excitement is for her books – worlds where the mortality of her characters is governed by a tap on her keyboard and the heroine always gets her happy ever after.
Homicide detective Chase Durant’s cases are real and gritty and one wrong move could be his last. The Force is his life – he doesn’t have room for more. Love and relationships hold no place for a man whose fate is predetermined by the genetic roll of a dice. With uncertainty on the horizon, he won’t promise a future he can’t guarantee.
Then a sadistic killer breathes Stacey’s gruesome murders to life and the pair are thrown together in a sick game of murder and lies.
When tempers flare, and the murders get personal, can author and detective fight their growing attraction all-the-while fighting the killer determined to destroy them both?
Set in Melbourne, Australia, Murder Most Unusual is a thrilling seductive suspense by the author of Lethal in Love, winner of RWA’s 2016 Romantic Book of the Year (RuBY) for long romance.
Michelle dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I had a lot of fun writing Stacey and Chase’s story. Particularly in relation to Stacey and her writing processes. I found myself asking a lot of ‘what if’ questions and coming up with answers that I’m so glad belong to fiction rather than fact! I’d love to know what readers think? How far would you go to write a good story? And what would happen if those stories suddenly sprang to life?
