Secret Crush by Victoria Pinder

Romantic Suspense
For some, joining the FBI is a long-term goal. For billionaire John Morgan, joining the Bureau is a stepping stone to proving his father is culpable for his sister’s death. After his estranged father dies, John is forced to return home and face the ghosts of his past. That proves to be more difficult than he could have ever imagined.

Alice Collins lives a peaceful life. As a farmer’s daughter, she knows what it’s like to work hard for what you want. After losing her best friend under inexplicable circumstances, her world viewpoint shifted until her small town sensibilities convinced her to attend Mr. Morgan’s funeral.

Soon, the past and the present collide and Alice is caught in the crosshairs. John comes to her aid, complicating matters for both of them.

Can a handsome billionaire on a vendetta truly fall for a small town girl or does he have something else in mind? Can a small town girl, if she gives her heart to him, ever fit in the House of Morgan?

A former teacher, Lynette gave up her career in education a
few years ago in order to focus on her writing and thus fulfil her childhood
dream. She writes contemporary women’s fiction, often involving romance with
suspense or a supernatural twist. She claims ‘Killing Jenna Crane’, a romantic
thriller and ‘Unworkers’ a modern ghost story/women’s fiction are her personal
favourites to date. Her latest release ‘The Nightclub’ is a romance packed with
suspense.

Cocktails and Lies

Genre Cozy Mystery
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
When Hannah’s house is burgled, she gains as much as she
loses: she meets Jan, her reserved Dutch neighbour and successful antiques
dealer, and Callum, the detective in charge of the case, then finds some hidden
letters to her dead grandmother that take her on an emotional journey of
discovery.
As Hannah juggles the attentions of the two men now firmly
in her life, she works to uncover the secrets of the past, only to find these
encroach on the present in unexpected ways.
And then there are the two men in her life, both vying for
her attention, both hiding things from her and each other. What does Callum
really know about Jan? What is Jan hiding from everyone? And what did her
grandmother—whose house it once was—hide from the world?
As if Hannah doesn’t have enough mysteries to solve, her
best friend Rachel enlists her help in solving her marital crisis, while her
pleasure-seeking mother seems intent on finding her a husband.
With so many skeletons rattling the door of Hannah’s house,
can she unravel these mysterious threads and reveal the truth, changing her
life forever?

About the Author

A former teacher, Lynette gave up her career in education a few years ago in order to focus on her writing and thus fulfil her childhood dream.  She writes contemporary women’s fiction, usually involving romance, and often with suspense or a supernatural twist.  She claims ‘Killing Jenna Crane’, a romantic thriller is her personal favorite to date.
Lynette currently lives in an early Victorian cottage (the inspiration for her latest story ‘Cocktails and Lies’) in a picturesque Surrey village. When she’s not reading or writing, she enjoys catching up with friends, visiting the theatre or cinema, and occasionally trying to tame her out-of-control garden and the family’s eccentric cat.
You can find more details of her novels on her website or Amazon author page.

Interview with Lynette Sofras

Why did you write this book?
I wanted to write a story that focused more on mystery than romance. I live in a Victorian Cottage (built 1849) and I often wonder what people it sheltered in the past, what secrets it protected, and what it might tell me if it could only speak. Since it remains forever silent, I thought I’d give it a special story of its own. Apart from the house and its setting, however, everything in the story is fictional.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love the classics and never tire of re-reading them, but in terms of modern novels, I enjoy any story that draws me into its fictional realms and allows me to wander among realistic characters in situations with which I can strongly identify.  I also enjoy a story that makes me do some work as I read, and I find psychological dramas do that best for me.  Throw in a little romance, and I’m in reader heaven.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Elizabeth Bennet: she has wit, beauty, energy, talent, confidence, and she landed Mr Darcy and the beautiful Pemberley. She’s the perfect heroine, and we’re forever trying to re-create some part of her in our stories.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
My next story is more of a psychological mystery (I seem to be heading in that direction lately) concerning a couple who have reached a crossroads in their marriage due to their inability to conceive.  The wife (an historian with an interest in genealogy) throws herself into her latest project, researching an eighteenth century nobleman and his family, while the husband does what men all too often do in this situation – he embarks on an affair… with dire consequences.
Please tell us about your latest book.
