It’s always a pleasure to welcome author Cate Beauman back to Thoughts in Progress. Today she visits to tell us about the latest release in her Bodyguards of L.A. County series, WAITING FOR WREN.
As an added bonus, Cate is sharing an excerpt from the new release and offering 3 eBook copies as giveaways. Please see the end of the post for more details.
Here’s a brief synopsis of WAITING FOR WREN…
When the past and present collide…
Wren Cooke has everything she’s ever wanted—a thriving career as one of LA’s top interior designers and a home she loves. Business trips, mockups, and her demanding clientele keep her busy, almost too busy to notice Ethan Cooke Security’s gorgeous Close Protection Agent, Tucker Campbell.
Jaded by love and relationships in general, Wren wants nothing to do with the hazel-eyed stunner and his heart-stopping grins, but Tucker is always in her way. When Wren suddenly finds herself bombarded by a mysterious man’s unwanted affections, she’s forced to turn to Tucker for help.
As Wren’s case turns from disturbing to deadly, Tucker whisks her away to his mountain home in Utah. Haunted by memories and long-ago tragedies, Tucker soon realizes his past and Wren’s present are colliding. With a killer on the loose and time running out, Tucker must discover a madman’s motives before Wren becomes his next victim.
Here’s Cate to tell us about working on WAITING FOR WREN.
As I have discussed with previous book launches, music plays a huge part in my writing process. I typically listen to Pandora or YouTube and compile a collection of songs that I feel represent my characters or the situations they face as the novel unfolds.
Here are a few of the songs that I had on “repeat” while I created Tucker and Wren’s story!
The soundtrack, of sorts, for WAITING FOR WREN:
· Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips
· Lego House by Ed Sheeran
· Wanted by Hunter Hayes
· What Would Happen If We Kissed by Meredith Brooks
· Trying Not to Love You by Nickelback
· Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth Ft. Emeli Sande
· I Hate How Much I Love You by Rhianna Ft. NeYo
· Be Still by The Fray
· All Along by Remedy Drive
· Clarity by Zedd
· Mirrors by Justin Timberlake
· To Build A Home by Cinematic Orchestra
