Books Ahoy! is a feature inspired by Entertainment Weekly‘s “Books of My Life” column. I wanted to go beyond the interview and ask authors (and even readers) about their favorite books. Reading is a personal, but shared experience and what a great way to know someone by asking them about the books that shaped their life.
No author or reader was forced to walk the plank.
I’m excited to welcome Cynthia Eden to Lit, etc.! Torn is now available and it’s the fourth book in the LOST series. If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, it’s not necessary to enjoy Torn.
Forensic anthropologist Victoria Palmer has always been better with the dead than the living. Shutting down her emotions, she lets few people in. But then Victoria’s latest investigation takes her and agent Wade Monroe to Savannah, Georgia. Handsome, dangerous, and more than ready to play dirty on any case, Wade weakens Victoria’s aloofness with just one glance.
Wade knows their recent cases have pushed Victoria beyond her limits. But her skills are crucial to finding a college student who went missing five years ago. Victoria is able to determine she was murdered, and that the killer is still on the loose.
And when the vicious murderer targets Victoria, Wade must do everything in his power to protect Victoria… because he refuses to let a woman he loves be torn from him…again.

As part of the blog tour, Cynthia was kind enough to agree to a Q&A and I hope you enjoy getting to know her better. By the way, woo-hoo for Christopher Pike and his books as well as Jayne Ann Krentz!
Q. Your favorite childhood book?
My absolute favorite book as a kid was REMEMBER ME by Christopher Pike.
Q. Classic book you’re embarrassed to admit you’ve never read?
Hmmmm…well, I guess that would be The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I LOVE the plot for this book, and I have no idea why I’ve never read the full story before this point!
Q. An author that is underrated?
I think Christopher Pike should receive a ton of horror-credit, and I worry that he is overlooked. His books were an addiction for me in my pre-teen years.
Q. A fictional character you’d want to be?
Q. A book that in some way cemented you as a writer?
That is a tough question! But you know what? I’m going to say HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT, the first book I ever published with Kensington Brava, cemented me. That book’s publication was my moment to say—this is real. I’m doing this. I am a writer.
Q. And finally, you’ve been given the task to host a last minute dinner party. Which authors are on your ultimate dinner invitation list? Alive or Dead.
I’d love to invite Edgar Allan Poe, Jayne Ann Krentz, Christoper Pike, and Julie Garwood. I think that would be a nice mix. 😉
Thanks so much for interviewing me!! It’s been fun!
