Spotlight & Giveaway: When All The Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz

Posted November 30th, 2016 by in Blog, Spotlight / 56 comments

Today it is my pleasure to Welcome author Jayne Ann Krentz to HJ!


Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth…



In which I answer the twelve questions that I am most frequently asked and recommend a book for that hard-to-shop-for person on your holiday list.

Question # 1: Why do you write romantic-suspense?

when-all-the-girls-have-goneThis question usually comes in a slightly different way. People who are curious about my chosen genre usually ask me what it’s like writing in three different genres (or sub-genres, if they want to get more specific). They are referring to the fact that I write in three different fictional landscapes – historical, contemporary and futuristic. The answer is that I have never thought of the three worlds as genres, although I suppose that is the appropriate way to think of them. But the truth is, as far as I’m concerned, I write one genre – romantic suspense. I set my stories in three different worlds because the various fictional landscapes give me enormous freedom when it comes to creating plots and characters. But at the core, my stories are always a blend of suspense and romance.
As far as I’m concerned romantic-suspense is a genre unto itself. It is defined, as my writer pal, Elizabeth Lowell, has observed, by the fact that in a novel of romantic-suspense every twist in the suspense creates a turn in the plot and vice-versa. The two elements are so closely linked that removing either the suspense element or the romance element would cause the entire story to fall apart. I love writing romantic-suspense. It’s my core story – and, yes, every author has one.

Day 1 Book Recommendation for Holiday Gifting.

Considering the fact that I mentioned my friend, Elizabeth Lowell, above, it seems only right that I recommend one of her novels for the reader on your list who enjoys well-crafted, well-researched romantic-suspense infused with atmosphere:
PERFECT TOUCH by Elizabeth Lowell.

Book Info: 

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling…

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way…

    I’ve never considered historical romances could fall into the romantic suspense genre, but they definitely can and do sometimes! (I know the book featured isn’t a historical romance, but I thought that was the most interesting part of this post :P)

  11. Mood Reader

    I love Jayne Ann’s books. Hers was one of the first romantic suspense books I read! 🙂

  12. Terrill R.

    I’ve heard that all of JAK’s books are inter-connected regardless of sub-genre. I am only familiar with her sci-fi/fantasy books and yet now I’m interested in seeing how all the books connect – even if very subtle.
