Kendra Elliot

Kendra Elliot is the award-winning author of numerous books, including the Bone Secrets and Callahan & McLane series. Elliot won the 2015 and 2014 Daphne du Maurier awards for Best Romantic Suspense, and she was an International Thriller Writers finalist for Best Paperback Original and a Romantic Times finalist for Best Romantic Suspense.

Elliot's new novel is A Merciful Truth.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
Over the last few weeks I read five fantasy books. I was finishing up my own book and needed something soothing for my brain. Since I write twisty suspense plots with murder, death, and violence, I often turn to historical romance to rest my neurons, but this time I got hooked on the Kingfountain series by Jeff Wheeler. I plowed through the first four and mentioned on Twitter that I was loving the series, and then the author pointed out that the fifth (unpublished) was available for review purposes. I took him up on that offer and devoured that one too. It’s a great series. Full of world building and heroes and magic.

Now that I’m getting ready to start my next suspense novel, I reach for authors in my own genre. I’m nearly finished with Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake. I’ve never read her before and it won’t be my last. This book makes me wish I’d written it. I can’t wait for the second in the series to release in December.
