The Real Enemy by Kathy Herman

Upon reading the description of The Real Enemy by Kathy Herman, I was immediately intrigued. A female police chief isn't seen too often in Christian fiction, and I was curious how Herman would handle her character, Brill Jessup. She did a good job of creating a complex, strong female character.

Here's a short summary of the story:

Brill Jessup is the first female police chief in Sophie Trace, Tennessee. She's a pro at solving cases---but personally insecure. Work has become her favorite distraction from trying to forgive her husband Kurt's infidelity. But when seven people go missing, her tireless investigation threatens her family and she's forced to confront the real enemy.

Read the first chapter here.

Guess what? I'm giving away a copy of The Real Enemy! Leave me a comment with your response to this question: "What do you most want to see in an author website?" and I'll draw a winner next week from everyone who responds.

I like a good bio. Who are they? Why do they write? When did their writing journey begin? What is their writing life like?

I guess I like to know the story behind the stories. :)

How did your first sale happen? How long did it take? This is what I like to read about.

I want to know what led them to write, what journey prompted them to share stories with the world. Something to make readers relate to the author. Thanks!

I liked to see why they chose the genre they did, what compelled them to write it instead of just romance, sci-fi so to say.

I like a little "behind the scenes" about the books. What inspired the book? What was tough to write? What surprised the author about the book? This also of course makes the book more intriguing too. Angela Hunt does this with her blog about once a month and it's a lot of fun.
