It gives me great pleasure to introduce a book to you, written by Linda Hall who’s also a member of the Alexandria Publishing Group. It’s a mystery. No, it’s not a mystery that I introduce a book, it’s the genre of the book. I’ve read it. It’s really a good book, but don’t take my word for it. Let me show you what Linda has to say about it:
I am pleased to announce that NIGHT WATCH, the first in my new mystery series (#emridgemysteries) is finally available. This book has been a part of my life and planning for a long, long time. Before I wrote six books for Harlequin, I wanted to write a series of mysteries which featured a female boat captain. She was in my thoughts during the first Bouchercon mystery conference I ever attended. I had the idea for Em Ridge (and her name and her backstory have gone through various permutations through the years.) The character was there in my mind, begging to come out, asking me over and over to tell her story, get it down, and out there for the readers.
But other things got in the way and it’s only now – now that I’m an author/publisher, that I am getting her story out.
Em Ridge is a boat captain. She’s not a huge container ship captain taking goods all over the world, nor does she helm ferries or tugboats (although she could – and maybe in a future book she will.). She’s not in the military or Coast Guard. She’s not a police force boat captain. What she does is deliver boats. She’s someone who gets hired by people to take their boats (usually luxury yachts) from Point A to Point B.
Normally, a fun job. You get to spend time on other people’s fancy boats! But in Em’s life, mystery always ensues.
In Night Watch, having the billionaire’s daughter go overboard on her first captaining job is not a good beginning. The sailboat is new, state of the art, her crew on this trip include two close sailing friends. But an unknown fourth, who can’t even tie a bowline, and the unruly owner’s daughter turn the idyllic trip into an adventure not wanted.
Two years ago Em buried her husband, her soulmate, her sailing buddy, and with him she buried a secret. As hours on the open seas slide by, secrets are resurrected tying Em’s past to a present, awash with murder and deception.
