About Paula Graves

Down here in the American South, we don't hide our crazy people. We showcase them. I've always thought it was because eccentric people make for the best stories, and we Southerners love our stories. Faulkner, McCullers, O'Connor, Porter—these are our chroniclers, writers steeped in the slow, steady pulse of the South's pride, suffering, honor, madness, venality and redemption. I grew up in Alabama, the heart of the South, and live here still. The need to tell stories has been a driving force in my life from a very young age.

As a child, my favorite books were Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries and Harlequin Romances. When I realized there were books that featured both romance and mystery, I knew I'd found my calling. Now I write for Harlequin Intrigue, where I get to play both matchmaker and murderer and get paid for it.

In addition, I work a full-time day job at a Birmingham ad agency, where I'm a copywriter and graphic designer, a background that comes in handy when it's time to redesign my website and create promotional materials for my books. I'm also known among certain circles as the Cat Whisperer, but that's a whole other story.

Loved this book, and was surprised how the plot twisted. The story was great, and each character added something to the story. I couldn't stop reading once I picked it up. I went and got more books from the author after reading this one.
