Cezanne's Ghost by Rolynn Anderson @rolynnanderson #RLFblog #suspenseWelcome Rolynn Anderson, author of Cezanne’s Ghost, a new Romantic Suspense.

Why did you write this book?

Cezanne’s Ghost actually helped me launch this story. My husband and I spent a month in an apartment Paul Cezanne (1836-1906) occupied when he lived in Aix-en-Provence, France. The city of Aix is brimming with reminders of the artist, including his workshop, his favorite restaurants, and, of course, displays of his art, everywhere. When I was on the train to Aix, a woman caught my eye, and she became Aline, my heroine in the novel

Cezanne’s Ghost

Three young American women vanish in Aix-en-Provence, France. Is their tour guide, Leon Beaudet to blame? When the American Consulate collars Leon as a suspect, his only recourse is to clear his name. Danger comes when his new tour group includes Aline Kerig, as beautiful and carefree as the three missing tourists. Leon is fascinated and puzzled by Aline even while he fears for her safety. When she refuses to go back to the States, Leon, the FBI, and the French police must include Aline on a hunt for the lost women. Can Leon guard Aline, find his lost tourists, and save his reputation?
Genre: Romantic Suspense, International mystery, FBI agent, Contemporary

For a sample of these two characters, I have a free short story (Christmas theme) on my website: https://www.rolynnanderson.com
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy escaping into an intriguing suspense novel, spiked with romance. That’s why I write stories in the genre. But I also enjoy brilliantly-written literary fiction.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Ethan from James Michener’s Winter of Our Discontent. A well-drawn character beset with moral dilemmas; one of Michener’s best.
What are you working on at the moment?
Fire is Nice is set in Sequoia/Kings National Park. The problem is poaching; my Law Enforcement Ranger, Sable Chisholm, is determined to collar the robbers, but she’s suffered an unusual injury while on duty that complicates her life and makes us wonder if she’s up to the job.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Expect Fire is Nice in early 2018.

Guest post written by Rolynn Anderson
As this blog goes live, I’m involved in the Women’s March in
San Luis Obispo, California, along with 5,000 other women. I’ll be proudly wearing
the pink hat my sister made for me. In 400 locations across the world, a
million or more women will be marching to support the precepts of equity,
diversity and inclusion. I grew up in a period when women writer/activists like
Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug and others worked hard on these issues, making huge
strides; I want the momentum to continue, using my writing to help our causes.
I remember wondering where the women were in
suspense/mystery best-selling novels I read in the 1960’s. Detectives, cops,
agents, and villains got the word count; women were wives or lovers playing
secondary parts. In fact, research tells us the last time women characters got
the most ink in novels was in the late 1800’s. That’s probably why when I
started writing in 2001, I gave leading status to the heroine, figuring female
readers needed all the examples they could get of how a woman handles her
position on a precipice. My heroes have almost equal footing with the heroine,
but the spotlight is generally on her.
My novels are contemporary page-turners. Unique settings and
clever villains create havoc for my heroine and hero, spiking the suspense and
the romance. Humor, complex plots, and flawed characters with steep learning
curves are bound to take the reader in new, exciting places. And, yes, women
dominate the word count. On this Women’s March Day, I salute the courageous
women who came before me!

About Fear Land

Tally hates to hear rants from people’s brains. What does
she do when those mind-screams threaten the man she loves?
Tally Rosella, an acclaimed psychiatrist who helps children
fraught with anxiety, avoids adults because their brains rant at her. But the
chance to start a second child study and connect her findings to PTSD, sets her
squarely among devious colleagues at a big California university.
Army Major Cole Messer, Tally’s new neighbor, won’t admit
that trauma from combat tours in Afghanistan destroyed his marriage and
hampered his ability to lead. As a teacher of college ROTC and single parent,
he’s focused on enrolling his highly anxious son in Tally’s study and getting
back to active duty.
Someone is dead set against Tally’s presence at the
university, and blowback from her battles with co-workers put Cole and his son
in jeopardy. Watch what happens when people struggling with shades of anxiety
collide with corrupt, revengeful foes.

Swoon 
Cover Love at Romance Lives Forever is a short intro to a book
and includes a cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author.
Today’s featured book is Swoon by Rolynn Anderson.
Her dead clients won’t rest in peace.
When the dead tell tales, Jan Solvang’s first reaction is to
RUN! But then she gets caught up in their mysteries.
Jan’s a boutique funeral planner, new to risk, hired to bury
a missing woman and memorialize an infamous man. Yet when she digs for clues to
write their eulogies, she disturbs f

amily secrets and unmasks killers.

Roman Keller, hard-driving documentary writer, is in complete
control of his life and his stories, until he falls for Jan, a woman who trusts
her dog, her faint-dreams, and her instincts more than she trusts him.
Can they make the sacrifices necessary to cement their relationship
or will the mayhem caused by the dead ruin their second chance at love?
“Don’t miss Swoon by Rolynn Anderson! If you like an interesting
cast of characters, a heavy dose of mystery and a lot of fabulous surprises, you’ll
be happily turning pages late into the night.ˮ
~ Brenda Novak, NYT and USA Bestselling Author of When Lightning
