Pub Date: May 20, 2014

Genre: NA Contemporary Suspense
Format: Ebook, 230 pages

There is something to be said for letting go. Ryland Roberts knows that better than anyone. He'd let go of his ambitions, of his family and—most of all—of her. He'd perfected the art of putting his past behind him and accepted the fact that the town he wanted to leave in his rearview was the place where he was going to live out his days. But sometimes the past doesn't just go away. Sometimes it comes back to haunt you.

Piper Jameson convinced herself that she left for all the right reasons. She'd saved people by leaving—made sure that they weren't tainted by her rebellious ways. When her little sister asks her to come home and say goodbye to their ailing mother, she's forced to see that things aren't always as they seem. The people who she'd left behind might not have been saved at all.

In the amount of time it takes a bullet to travel from point A to point B, Piper and Ryland will have to put their feelings for each other aside and make a choice. Forced on the run with Piper's sister, they begin to understand that the future they thought was gone was never really lost.

Mickey: Hey, Elizabeth Lee! Welcome to the blog! Feel free to introduce yourself.
Elizabeth: Hey all! I'm just a girl from the Midwest that likes to tell stories.

Mickey: WHERE THERE'S SMOKE just released. It's very different from your other novels—a lot darker, more serious. Tell us what WTS is about and what readers can expect from this new series.
Elizabeth: It is a little different for me, but I think it's still got the heart that readers expect when they pick up one of my books. There's steam, suspense, and a second chance at love!

Mickey: The main characters in WHERE THERE'S SMOKE have sketchy pasts. Were you able to draw from any personal experience (that you can tell us about. Haha!) to write this one?
Elizabeth: Haha! I may or may not have done a couple of things described in this novel! I'll never tell! :-) As far as the legal stuff, my settings and characters are always loosely based on some place I've been or someone I've met.

Mickey: The dedication of WHERE THERE'S SMOKE reads, "For the Belles..." *tears up* Who are these amazing Belles you speak of? *winks*
Elizabeth: The Backwoods Belles, of course! The super sweet, super supportive street team I share with Caisey Quinn! Love those girls!!

Mickey: I know your readers are probably dying for FINDING YOU too. Any dates or teasers you can give us about that one?
Elizabeth: I'm hoping for later this year! Mallory definitely has a story to tell!

Mickey: I think most people know that you also write the Broken Heartland series with Caisey Quinn. Those readers are absolutely dying for book 2! Any news you can share? *begs*
Elizabeth: Just like a storm, it could strike at any time! ;-)

Mickey: Readers loved seeing you and all of the other amazing authors at the Chicago Author Event! What other events will you be signing at or attending this year?
Elizabeth: I'll be in Knoxville for the TN Valley Author Event and in St. Louis later this summer.

Mickey: Moment of truth: Do you eat your vegetables?
Elizabeth: Come on. You know the answer. I'm carbs and candy all the way.

Mickey: Thank you so much for being on the blog, Elizabeth! Any parting words?
Elizabeth: Thank you for having me! A pleasure as always, Mickey!

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand. Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination! Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
