What a Great Suspense Novel Looks Like

Tuesday and Thursday, Liliian Duncan, author of Pursued, shared some tips for writing great suspense novels. (You can read both articles here: part I, part II.) Today I wanted to highlight her novel so you could see what the end product looks like.

PURSUED by Lillian Duncan

Reggie Meyers has spent her life pursing the American Dream, but now she’s the one being pursued— by an unknown killer. Putting her trust in Dylan Monroe, a man she barely knows, will either be the best decision she ever made or the last.

Reggie’s a big city lawyer and Dylan’s a country farmer. In the normal course of events, their lives would never intersect but some accidents just aren’t meant to be avoided. When Reggie crashes into Dylan, it makes a bad day even worse or so she thinks. Dylan, on the other hand, is intrigued by the feisty lady lawyer and wrangles a way to spend a bit more time with her by offering to drive her home after the accident. And so the journey that will change both their lives begins…

What others are saying about Pursued:

“The ultimate test of a good novel is the story told, and Lillian Duncan created a powerful story with Pursued.”

“I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I read it in a few hours since it was hard to put down!”

“Combining a good mix of suspense, mystery, and romance, Lillian Duncan’s new novel, Pursued, is sure to please!”

***

Lillian Duncan lives in a small town in the middle of Ohio Amish country with her husband, four parrots, one Jack Russell, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Whether as a speech-language pathologist, an educator, or as a writer, she believes in the power of words to change lives, especially God’s Word.

Lillian believes books can be entertaining without being trashy. She writes the types of books she loves to read, suspense with a touch of romance. Her newest release is PURSUED and her fifth novel, DECEPTION, will be released later this year. Her website is: www.lillianduncan.net and her blog is www.lillianduncan.wordpress.com.
