BEHIND THE BOOK: Dana Haynes

Doing research for my latest novel on the island of Cyprus led me to a strange paradox. The island may be split by rival military forces. But most Cypriots just don’t care that much. Those I spoke to found the division of their island to be, at worst, a bit annoying. What passes back and forth isn’t bullets or shells, these days, but snarky tweets. I was reminded of this in November when the island celebrated the first new open route between the Greek and Turkish sides in about eight years.  “Today is good day for Cyprus,”...

REVIEW OF STROKE OF LUCK

REVIEW OF STROKE OF LUCK

STROKE OF LUCKby B.J. Daniels is the first of three in this new series.  Known for mixing romance and danger this one concentrates more on the relationship than the danger, a slight change from her past novels.  “I wrote it as more of a romance than a mystery.  My editor suggested I do this.  I tried it but feel it is not what I really want to do.  I think people read me for the suspense.  If people want a true romance they can find it elsewhere.  In this novel, it worked well to have the relationship more up front...
