Romance Suspense


Forensic artist Fiona Glass is the best in the business—which is precisely why she’s quitting. Her skill at mining victims’ memories to re-create the faces of sadistic criminals has left her haunted and wary, and only Jack Bowman’s dogged persistence convinces her to help him. The rugged police chief is hunting a serial killer who’s targeting teenage girls. But what seems like a simple assignment is fraught with complications, including a searing attraction to Jack that’s tempting Fiona to let her guard down in potentially dangerous ways.

Jack never intended for Fiona to become so deeply involved in the case—or his life. And now that she’s right in the killer’s crosshairs, the only way to keep her safe is to unravel a small town’s darkest secrets, one terrifying thread at a time…

Re: Thread of Fear

I totally enjoyed your first two books, Laura. You do such a great job of building suspense AND creating powerful love stories. How do you balance the two?
I'm really looking forward to THREAD OF FEAR.
(Jane Sevier 11:23am October 8, 2008)

Hi, Laura! I look forward to reading your book.
I really enjoyed your article in October's
Romantic Times, too, which gave some insight
into the real-life forensic artist who inspired
your heroine. Can't wait to see what (or who)
your next inspiration is...
Anne Marie Becker 12:47pm October 8, 2008)

Hey Laura, well shoot, I missed your article in RT...are you going to post it on your site?

Can't wait to get into THREAD OF FEAR . . .
Kit Frazier 1:25pm October 8, 2008)

Hey, Sandi!

I made a couple of resolutions this year that I hope will help me and my obsessions. One is that I have to clear ten books out of the house before I can buy another book. My TBR pile numbers in the thousands, and at the rate of 150 or so books a year, there's no way I'll ever read everything. Well, not at that pace, anyway...

I also resolved not to take any more books from the various swap shelves I visit unless I'm actually swapping 1 for 1. I've already broken that one, though. Sigh.

My final book resolution of the year is to finish the books I started and put aside. I have at least three stacks of them taking up space on my TBR case, and it's been driving me crazy. I've had to trick myself into this one, though, so what I've been doing is reading two books at a time. I alternate a chapter in one then a chapter in the other until one of the books really grabs me, then I finish that one and add something new into the rotation. I still have my bathroom book, my purse book, and an audiobook in the car, so I have lots of choices. I actually started the alternating chapter thing at work (I'm a substitute teacher) because it helps me remember to look up and walk around in the classroom when the teachers have left seat work for the kids.
Mellanie Crowther 12:57pm January 4, 2009)

Okay I have a 2009 New Year's resolution and so far so good! It's going to bring about boos from the writing community but I have to do this. I will not buy more than four books per month and I must read four that are in my TBR pile. So four in four out and more to be read monthly if I can get up to reading speed again. The other half of that same resolution is to hold on to nothing. Either they go to PBS or get passed on to reader friends. These days I have read very few that are truly keepers so there is no point in loading up my closet. As I read they go! Bottom line there will be some room on my book shelves at the end of the year.

Livia Holton 1:26pm January 4, 2009)

My only New Year's reading resolution is to try more new authors and maybe try to get into more ebooks. I keep seeing some that look really really intersting.
Debbie Beverley 1:39pm January 4, 2009)

Eeek. Thanks for the reminder. I need to read a book by this month's author. As for resolutions, I'm gonna go with the classic of getting healthy. It is soo happening this year. I even took the icky "before" pictures on Friday.
Summer Sharp 1:59pm January 4, 2009)

I joined many reading challenges and I'm hoping that will keep me focused on reading the books in my TBR.
Yvonne Hering 3:01pm January 4, 2009)

Hi Sandi, Please tell me where to find the challenge for the Word of the Month. I would like to join. Thanks.
Val Valleau 3:13pm January 4, 2009)

Hi Sandi, I like your resolutions and they do sound fun! I was reading at my normal rate until moving, then I slowed down and then stopped. So for me I just need to find the time to read again. I still love books and add new/used ones all the time to the TBR. But looking at them isn't enough, now, is it! I hope you will keep us up to date w/ your word of the month books, that is a fun challenge!
Pam Nolan 5:21pm January 4, 2009)

Several years ago I gave up making resolutions! That said I am going to try to loose some weight & be as healthy as possible. My weight is way more than I like & my blood pressure is a bit high! That was a surprise as it has always been "really good" normal reading. Since I know how to be & stay healthy there is really no good excuse except bad habits!
Sandi, is the word "snow" in the 2009 Challenge for H/S?
Donna McClure 6:58pm January 4, 2009)

I work full time and have only a few hours to read so I read whatever I am in the mood to read.
Joyce Mandle 7:21pm January 4, 2009)

Thanks to everyone who posted! It's amazing to think that so many of use really have basically the same resolutions. I
have broken the no new book one already....but I have had an amazon g.c. since before Christmas that I was waiting to
spend, and now am trying to spend it down....so did I really break the resolution since it's not my money?

As for the word challenge. That's something that is happening in one of the yahoo groups I belong to. Each month the
challenge is to read a book that has the preselected word in the title. It's not in any way tied to the 100,000 challenge
that Harlequin is doing. It's simply a challenge the group started to help generate some book discussions, and I thought
sounded fun especially because I had a book that fit the word on my shelf, and miracle of miracles even knew exactly

Thank you all again for checking out the blog and once more I hope everyone has a great 2009!
Sandi Shilhanek 7:58pm January 4, 2009)

Great blog as always, Sandi! I've never made reading resolutions before. Frankly, I don't make resolutions at all, but do hope to take better care of myself physically and try to lose some of the stress in my life in the coming year. I suppose that could lead to more reading time if done properly!

Happy New Year, Sandi - I hope it's a great one!!

Hugs to you!
Laurie Damron 10:06pm January 4, 2009)

My reading resolution is simple...keep finding new authors to read...There is nothing as fun as discovering a new author! Happy New Years!

Tina Sporer 10:11pm January 4, 2009)

My reading goals are pretty simple also. I will continue to try to read 100 books in the year. I, too, would like to find some new to me authors. I plan to read more from my TBR stack, and I'm doing some of the book site challenges.
Love reading your blog!
Gail In Alabama
Gail Pace 11:17pm January 4, 2009)

to read as many of my TBR pile as possible before going out and buying more!!
Shauna George 7:42pm January 7, 2009)

Even as a child, I loved mysteries. I read all the Nancy Drew books, of course!
Gwendolyn Bruno 12:02pm January 21, 2009)

The book that made the biggest impression on me was "The Chrysalids" by John Wyndham, which I read in the 5th grade. It set off a love of fantasy that remains to this day :)
Zita Hildebrandt 12:04pm January 21, 2009)

I read and re-read the complete Chronicles of Narnia - they have been the only books I could re-read. C.S. Lewis meant for you to read them at different ages - because you really do get a different meaning out of them every time you read them. I have LOVED seeing them come to the big screen - they follow the books VERY closesly. Also, all the Judy Blume/Beverly Cleary books.
Kelli Jo Calvert 12:28pm January 21, 2009)

I am an only child and I always remembering having a book in my hand. My most vivid memory was reading Christine by Stephen King. I had a hard time imagining a car coming to life. However, I still read his books and anything else I can get my hands on.
Roberta Harwell 1:06pm January 21, 2009)

My fave childhood read was "The Secret Garden". Another fave was the one about the kids living in the "boxcar"....I use to try and act that one out.....my poor mother!
Thanks for the great tips too!
Darby Lohrding 2:27pm January 21, 2009)

My favorite childhood reads were the Laura Ingalls Wilder series. I loved reading those books over and over.
Leslie Gladnick 3:41pm January 21, 2009)

Nancy Drew was a favorite. In high
school I found Mary O'Hara' trilogy MY
lot of time reading books on
archeology and scientific discoveries
and exploration.
Patricia Barraclough 8:58pm January 21, 2009)

My favorite book as a child was Grimm's Fair Tales. This was before they were edited with light endings. These were dark fairy tales - and written for school age children. The match girl danced til her feet were bloody, the stepsister of Cinderella cut off their toes to fit in the slipper! etc.
Wanda Sissle 5:28am January 22, 2009)

Nancy Drew was also a favorite of mine, Great minds think alike.
Teresa Miller 1:04pm January 23, 2009)

I work at a small county library. We do
have a book club use our meeting
room. I, however, participate in sort of
an running book club with our
patrons. We share books we've read,
suggest what others may like, and
patrons suggest new authors they'd
like us to get. I get to pick up new
authors and introduce them to
patrons. It's a lot of fun and since
there is no meeting time we are
including a lot of people that would
never join a "real" reading group.
We've all discovered some good new
books. I like being able to talk with
people with a wide variety of tastes in
books. Through us they are sharing
with people they've never met. It's
great fun. I love my job!
Patricia Barraclough 4:10pm January 24, 2009)

Well, being a part of the book club that has dinner at your house I have to say how much I enjoy it. The part about book converts
is oh so true! I had never read or thought I had an interest in reading Eileen Dreyer, and then talked to her and now all but one of
her books resides in my TBR.

Would I have read Laura Griffin as soon as I did? Probably not...but I read it, enjoyed it, and have even convinced my friend
Yvonne she has to read it!

Lastly the group discussed an author for a phone in, and I said ooops there goes my resolution to read the author each month.
However, you all convinced me that there would be one book by the author that I would enjoy, so I went home, and that book is
now part of my Kindle library.

For those of you who don't have a book club...hope you find one, and I hope it clicks as well as our does, because even when we
argue it's all in good spirit!
Sandi Shilhanek 5:07pm January 24, 2009)

I attend several book clubs a month. Two at different libraries and three at s book store. The ones at the library are diverse. There is a mixture of ages with very few men. At the bookstore, one group has a few women and one man but the other is often me and the manager of the bookstore. Another one is all women. We read a variety of books. Not much is off limits. We've done romance, current fiction, classics, current events, history, movie tie-ins. There's something for everyone and I have to admit I wouldn't have read some of the books had it not been for a book club. I've discovered many new books and authors.
Sheila Gallagher 7:40pm January 24, 2009)

We have an on again off again book club
at work, fun at lunch to discuss and walk
and talk.
Mary McCoy 10:39pm January 24, 2009)

I could have sworn I did this yesterday but it doesn't show. Well anyways, I belong to the Real Simple (mag) book club. We vote on a book and then the person in charge emails everyone after so many days to start discussing the chapter. I have never belonged to a "real", meet in person book club but would love to try it sometime.
Vicki Hancock 10:19am January 25, 2009)

I miss being in a book club now! This might be just the push I need to get our online "club" active. I have found there are about as many ways to have a book club as there are clubs. It really adds something to the group when you feel that you "know" the author. That's why I love reading these blogs and author's web site posts
Deborah Oller 9:10pm January 25, 2009)

No books clubs here. But I belong to several author loops and discuss books with other readers. I find it neat to be able to talk to the author about her books and finding out about her. It makes the author seem more like a friend and that they care about us readers.
