Debut Novel Party for PM Kavanaugh!!

Guess what? Two of my best friends have debut novels coming out this week! So we are celebrating it up on my blog!! It's virtual party time all week. :)

I'm thrilled to kick-off the celebrations by presenting Die Run Hide, a fast-paced thriller, oozing with romance, written by PM Kavanaugh and published through Crimson Romance!

First, grab a cup of coffee (or tea or water!). PM is secret code for "Patrice," so from here on out, I'll be referring to Patrice. And since I happen to know she has a wee obsession with Starbucks, our  beverages will be served in lovely white and green cups. :)

Also, this party needs some chocolate in the form of an ooey-gooey bar. Go on, have a slice! They are calorie free after all.

Now that we're all snacked up, let's get to the good stuff.



I met Patrice a few years ago at my local writer's group, MVRWA. She's one of those super cool people who combines elegance and intelligence with a wicked sense of humor. She's the other half in my success team (success team has a better ring to it than accountability partners!). It came as no surprise to me when she called to tell me Crimson Romance wanted to publish her book. I had the pleasure to read Die Run Hide, and let me tell you, it rocks!!



Die Run Hide

Follow orders or die. Anika Washington knows the rules laid down by the counterterrorist agency that owns her. When she aborts a mission in order to spare a young girl, she’s given an ultimatum: take on a new mission that requires betraying her fellow operative, and lover, or forfeit her own life.

After discovering that her lover, Gianni, has chosen another, Anika accepts the mission. In the aftermath, she learns that Gianni was faithful to her and she’d been tricked into thinking otherwise. The knowledge comes too late and she’s almost killed in an agency double-cross.

Now she must run—battling time, former enemies and the agency itself to stay alive and save the man she loves.

Now that you know what the book is about, here is my review!

(I received an advanced reader copy of this book with no obligation to review it. All opinions are my own.)

Jill's review:

Buckle up! This fast-paced thriller had me on edge from the first sentence to the very end. I couldn't put it down! Indeed, I read it in one sitting--it's THAT good.

Set in the near future, Anika is a federal operative, but not by choice. She's trying to escape a life of no privacy, forced dangerous missions, and few choices. But her love of fellow operative, Gianni, threatens everything, and she makes a desperate decision that forces her on the run. Along the way, she learns the freedom she yearns for means nothing unless she's with her heart's desire.

I loved this book. Each action-packed, emotional chapter had me guessing, and I love guessing. Who can she trust? How will she react? Can she escape? Will she get what she longs for? And as the plot progressed to the end, I was left with a deep satisfaction and my own longing--for a sequel!
If you enjoy the Jason Bourne series or Mr. and Mrs. Smith, you'll love this book!
