Q & A with Elizabeth...

Q:  This is the first book in the "Uncommon Justice" series. How many books are proposed for the series, and when will the next one release?
A:  I'm so glad you asked! Three books have been proposed, and the second book is slated to release in Fall 2019.

Q:  What was the inspiration behind Never Let Go?
A:  I read an article about a forensic genealogist and the missing persons case she solved for the police. It intrigued me enough that I saved it, hoping I'd have a chance to use this particular kind of character in a story. Add to that, I grew up in a family of genealogists. Setting always serves as an inspiration for me as well, and I had hoped to set a series in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Q:  What do you hope readers gain from reading this book?
A:  My goal is always to deliver a powerful emotional experience, but more than that, I hope readers take away a sense of satisfaction as well as the feeling that all is right with the world when justice is served, relationships are mended, and romance is delivered.

Q:  What's next on your writing to-do list?
A:  I'm currently working on book two in the "Uncommon Justice" series.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm sure my readers will enjoy learning a bit more about your latest release.

My review...

After Willow Anderson’s grandfather dies, she is determined to close out the forensic genealogist case he’d been working on before he’d died. It’s a cold case of a baby abduction twenty years ago. While working on the case, Willow learns that her ex-fiancé Austin was helping her grandfather. Austin broke her heart when he left her, but she must find a way to work with him to solve the mystery of the missing baby. In doing so, they’ll need to confront their past, as well as stay alive. Someone wants to prevent them from finding out the truth. What lengths will they go to in order to keep Willow and Austin from uncovering the mystery?

Romantic suspense stories are some of my favorite books. The prologue grabs the readers’ interest. There are a few parts in the story where the pacing stalls with a bit too much backstory, but things balance out as the story unfolds.  The characters remind the reader that things aren't always as they seem, and it's easy to root for Austin as he battles his demons.The genealogy angle is a nice addition to story. The romance is woven in, but it doesn’t overwhelm the suspense. It’s the first in Goddard’s “Uncommon Justice” series. I look forward to seeing the characters, particularly Heath, in future installments.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy, but I wasn’t required to leave a positive review.
