FOR PARANORMAL THRILLER LOVERS

Questions for all you paranormal lovers out there.
1. Do you love paranormal thrillers?
2. Do you love paranormal romance?



How about mystical Gypsy lore?

Well, I have a fast paced novel just for you.
Previously titled Gypsy Crystal, republished now as GYPSY BLOOD, this novel has been on the best seller list for months for BooksWeLove.
WILL GYPSY MAGIC HELP STOP A SERIAL KILLER?


Let me take you into the world of gypsy mysticism and an odd serial killer.

My detective, Rita Muldova, is of pure Roma blood. Her mother, Anna, is a great seer, and Uncle Dragus can bend spoons, but his greatest talents are playing the violin and baking. Yes, he loves to bake so much that he and Anna opened a restaurant/bakery at a quaint theme mall. He makes the best brownies in the area.

When Rita decided on a police career, Anna gave her an heirloom that had been handed down through their maternal bloodline. She gave the amulet to Rita for her daughter’s protection and to help with her career. Not an ordinary amulet, mind you, but a pure crystal star she wears around her neck. When Rita holds the star in her hand, she feels a warm pulse run up her arm, and she can see in a dead person’s eye the last person they had seen before they died. It also sends out pulses of warm for a safe sign and then ice cold for danger.

What a boost for her career. But now there is a serial killer staking prostitutes in her city and, to Rita’s horror, the amulet has stopped working.

Agent Matt Boulet has been trailing this killer from New Orleans to Rita’s city. The tall, dark, and dangerous looking agent leads the newly formed task force to catch this killer.

He works closely with Rita. Maybe too close with the sparks of attraction between them, and they face the dangerous waters together with all the inherent gifts of Rita’s family.

Will they win the battle ahead?

I think it would be all of the above, particularly the relationship between Rita and the detective, who is undoubtedly skeptical of her abilities. Watching them become attracted, and him become a believer so we can all go booya in his face lol

Of course the mystery aspect is great too. So yeah, all of the above :)

I love when genres are blended because it really comes down to good storytelling, not labels, and you do it so well, Lorrie!

Great blog post!

I agree with Julie, a great blog post, Lorrie.

To tell the truth, I'm not a lover of paranormal(ducks and runs), nor romance (well, in book form), but I loved Gypsy Blood. It was the Gypsy lore that intrigued me, the mystery and the humor. Yes, humor. Rita's sidekick in the investigation is hillarious and this lightens the tension.

A great read.

Gotta run. There's a strange, slimey thing oozing around the corner and...

Lorrie said...

Thanks Julie for stopping by.

Maria, a big slimy thing? Better tell us what it is. Ewww.

Marva Dasef said...

I want to hear more about Maria's big slimy thing.

But for Gypsy, it's the gypsies for me. There are no new plots, but there's a great need for new ways to present those plots. Make it fresh and unique and you've got yourself an audience.

In Lorrie's novella, you don't get your paper cutout gypsy curses. You get a modern gypsy woman dealing with the real world in her own way. Rita is an inspiration.

J Q Rose said...

All those elements in this one story? Now I am curious!! I love reading Lorrie's humorous stories.

Lorrie said...

Thanks, Marva. I glad you liked the book. I want to know about Maria's slimy thing too.

Yep, JQ, we have all that and a lot more in this book. A few surprises.

I like mysteries so finding out who the killer is would appeal to me. And it being paranormal is a bonus.

lo said...

The two I would pick: The paranormal aspect and the romantic Hunk and the tale about that. Who wouldn't want an amulet and a gorgeous hunk? Think about it?

Lorrie said...

So, anon, you like paranormal mysteries. I think you'd like this one.

Yep, Lo, Matt is a gorgeou hunk. But then, Rita's not so bad herself. lol.

Margaret West said...

I love paranomral romance. But i have read gypsy blood and loved it. So I say, try what you think you won't like. You might be pleasently suprised.

Lorrie said...

Good advice, Margaret. You never know what will hook you unless you try.

Darla said...

I loved all aspects in this book. What pulled me was the paranormal, mystery/suspense and romance aspects of the book.
I love love love the paranormal. Since a ghost currently resides with me and my husband, the supernatural/paranormal truly intrigues me.
The Gypsy lore was a bonus for me also.

So not only did I get a great read, I learned also. :)

Lorrie said...

I want to meet your ghost. Now that sounds like a story by itself. When are you going to write it?

Nightly Cafe said...

Loved the post. I have to agree with most above, that I would love all aspects :).

Great job Lorrie :)
