How a character changes through a series

I’m often asked by readers if it’s possible to read the Kay Hunter books as standalones, or whether it’s best to start at the beginning with book one, Scared to Death.

In truth, each of the stories can be read separately and any order because the main crime is always solved, but I think to get a real sense of how Kay Hunter’s character has developed over five books, it is better to start at the beginning.

She had no idea of the imminent horror she was about to witness as she heard someone shout for help. A brilliantly tense opening chapter. Continue reading

Spotlight, Q&A by #Author @RachelAmphlett #ScaredtoDeath Blog Tour

Welcome to my stop on Rachel’s blog tour for her new crime thriller Scared To Death.
