Jeanette Levellie said...

Oooh, this sounds great, Susan! Happy Blogiversary, and please include me in the drawing.

I love mysteries more than suspense--I don't like the stress! I'm reading Bonnie Calhoun's Cooking the Books right now, and it's a hilarious, well-written mystery.

Melanie N. Brasher said...

I would love to have the chance to read one of his novels. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Susan!

Sarah Forgrave said...

I'll admit I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to suspense. I love a good plot, but if it's too suspenseful, I've learned to read it only during the day. :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sarah -

I love suspense, but often put it down when it gets too frightening. When my heart returns to a normal rate, I go back for more. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Maria I. Morgan said...

Susan Panzica - EternityCafe said...

I love suspense!! Unfortunately I tend to get so wrapped up reading for what comes next, I am useless for anything else! Just as my husband ;D

Would love to read it!
See you soon dear friend.

Hi Susan -

My Mom and I laugh because we both get so engrossed in a book that we forget the time.

See you in a couple of weeks. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Nezzy - Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I think Granny Clampett is a hoot!

Marja Meijers said...

Mystery or suspense? Is there a big difference? I never gave that a thought :) Well, you made me think today, thanks!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Marja -

Yes, there's a difference. Mysteries are mostly the whodunit variety. Suspense keeps the adrenaline flowing until its almost unbearable.

Anyone have a different definition?

Blessings,
Susan :)

Diane Estrella said...

I love a good mystery with some suspense. No thrillers here though, I need to sleep! :O)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Diane -

I'll occasionally read a thriller, but prefer mystery/suspense.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Janette Dolores said...

Hi, Susan:

I'm throwing my hat in the ring for this book. As to mysteries versus suspense, I tend to prefer the former. Suspense can make me anxious, but it provides all the more reason to snuggle up to my hubby after I'm done reading. :-)

Blessings.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Janette Dolores - This book is action packed. Your hubby would also like it since the MC is a man.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Marja Meijers said...

Interesting comments, thanks everyone, thanks Susan!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Marja -

Thanks for commenting. It's nice to see you in the blogosphere again.

Blessings,
Susan :)

DenaNetherton said...

I much prefer suspense to mystery/who dun it. I love that delicious tingling can't-put-it-down feeling when the author has really grabbed me with the characters and the fascinating circumstances.

Happy blog-o-birthday!

Hi Kathleen -

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Right now, I'm reading four books. :)

Gabrielle Meyer said...

Hello, Susan! Thanks for stopping by my blog today and following me.

Hmm... I like mysteries because you are engaged in collecting clues and putting all the pieces together and then left wondering if your conclusion is correct - it makes for a good read!

Faith Imagined said...

I really like Jerry B. Jenkins's web presence. I haven't read any of his books, so I'll have to check this one out!

Thanks!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Gabrielle - Thanks for becoming a Follower. Playing amateur sleuth is a fun part of reading whodunits.

Hi Alisa - I'll have to check out his website. I'm familiar with his work from the Left Behind series.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I like both. A good mystery with lots of action! Happy Blogoversary!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Stephen -

You'd like the action in this book.

Blessings,
Susan :)
