So, I have a bit of a challenge going on. Romantic suspense is not generally the first thing you think of in relation to Christmas spirit. Cosy crime seems to get away with it, and ghost stories are part of the Christmas tradition, but thrillers? We're back to that body count again. I'm also determined that it will be a novella - 30,000 to 40,000 words, as I have other stuff I want to do, like getting back to a full length romantic suspense, not to mention the day job. But I'm wondering if that is enough for a thriller? I have a gut feeling that a true thriller takes a bit longer to develop. A novella? Too much menace too soon and it's horror, not enough and its crime rather than suspense?
Anyway. I am going to have a go. I have an interesting hero and heroine and a four year old, and a cat, and a lot of snow, which is a surprise to them as it was to me.
And Devlin from Never Coming Home is going to make a cameo appearance.
And there is going to be a helicopter ...
