Welcome contemporary romance author, Emily Mims...

Hi Emily! It's great to have you here and to be a part of your ongoing tour - wishing you lots of sales and success with your latest release, MIST. Let's start with my questions...

1.)              What is the strangest talent you have?
I can find things no one else can.  If you’ve misplaced your keys, I’m your girl.
2.)              What is the best Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
Wonder Woman
3.)              Are the titles of your books important?
Hopefully they set the tone for the story.
4.)              If you’re struggling with a scene or difficult character, what methods help you through it?
I walk away for a bit and then go back.
5.)              Do you prefer dog, cats or none of the above?
6.)              Who’s your favourite author? Why?
I hate to name just one, but I guess it would have to be Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Robb.  I also love her paranormal trilogies.
7.)              Do you have a pet peeve?
I get aggravated with those who have a ‘glass half empty and it’s leaking’ mentality.  Life is beautiful, it’s grand, even when it’s not quite perfect.  Find something to do that gives you joy!
8.)              Do you remember your dreams when you wake up in the morning?
On occasion.

GENRE: Romance/romantic suspense



The widow of a lying drug dealer, dulcimer-player Kylie Barstow Richards finds herself struggling to see through the mist of the Smoky Mountains to the truth-about her life, about the nightclub where she works, and about the bluegrass-playing musician who has arrived to steal her heart.



Ren got a soda out of the fridge and scrolled down to Sawyer Ellison’s number.  “So what did you learn over the weekend?” Sawyer demanded without preamble.

“Damn little.  There was one odd incident but the rest of the weekend was on the up and up.”

“So tell me about the odd incident.”

Ren recounted Royce’s remark and Kylie’s reaction to it.  “I wouldn’t have thought so much about the crack if it hadn’t been for her reaction.  What he said, it really got to her.”

“Interesting.  And then there’s the question of whether he just made a random nasty crack that inadvertently hit the nail on the head or whether he really knows something.  So give me his name, the clown who made the crack, and I’ll see what I can find out about him.”

Ren gave Sawyer both Royce and Archer’s names.  “But again, except for her reaction to that crack out of Royce, I saw absolutely nothing amiss all weekend, and we were together most of the time.  She did nothing even remotely suspicious.  So I have to ask:is Kylie the only one responsible, or is somebody else involved?”
