Arriving at her secluded cabin to find her brother missing, Olivia Kendricks follows his trail into the woods—until two shooters take aim at her. She only escapes when ex-detective Zachary Long, her brother’s friend—and Olivia’s first love—comes to her rescue. Now as they run for their lives in the snowbound wilderness, they must search for her brother while figuring out why someone wants them dead. And though Zach’s police force training may be what will save them, it’s also what once drove them apart when he gave Olivia up to chase his dream. In a freezing landscape as deadly as it is beautiful, they’ll have to let go of the past…and face down powerful men willing to kill to keep secrets buried.
Bestselling author, Elizabeth Goddard, recently took time out of her busy schedule to discuss writing FALSE SECURITY with The Big Thrill:
What do you hope readers will take away from this book?
Never give up.
Was there anything new you discovered, or surprised you, as you wrote this book?
I learned a lot about drones and what our future might look like. A bit terrifying.
No spoilers, but what can you tell us about your book that we won’t find in the jacket copy or the PR material?
I started writing the book while I sat in the hospital with my dying mother—finishing the book after she died was brutal! But readers have shared that it was one of my best books—the characters were more raw and vulnerable than ever.
Elizabeth Goddard is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than 25 romance novels and counting, including the romantic mystery, The Camera Never Lies—a 2011 Carol Award winner.
