The Lullaby Girl by Loreth Anne White Release Day #Giveaway


Title: The Lullaby Girl
Author: Loreth Anne White
Release Date: November 14, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense / Thriller
Series: Angie Pallorino, Book #2

Summary

Detective Angie Pallorino took down a serial killer permanently and, according to her superiors, with excessive force. Benched on a desk assignment for twelve months, Angie struggles to maintain her sense of identity—if she’s not a detective, who is she? Then a decades-old cold case washes ashore, pulling her into an investigation she recognizes as deeply personal.

Angie’s lover and partner, James Maddocks, sees it, too. But spearheading an ongoing probe into a sex-trafficking ring while keeping Angie’s increasing obsession with her case in check is taking its toll. As startling connections between the parallel investigations emerge, Maddocks realizes he has even more than Angie’s emotional state to worry about.

Driven and desperate to solve her case, Angie goes rogue, risking her relationship, career, and very life in pursuit of answers. She’ll learn that some truths are too painful to bear, and some sacrifices include collateral damage.

But Angie Pallorino won’t let it go. She can’t. It’s not in her blood.

Interview with Author Loreth Anne White 
1)    Coffee or tea?
Both! Coffee in the morning. With lunch, a huge mug of English Breakfast tea spiked with slices of fresh ginger and a sprig of fresh mint from the garden. And after my daily hike or ski in the woods with my Black Beast, aka Hudson the Labradog, I love a cappuccino break.
2)    Walk on the beach or skiing at a remote chalet?
I’d have to say beach. But I live in the cold, wet, snowy mountains, so I ski. I know, it’s a tough life, but we make do :)
3)    Comedy or drama?
Drama. Most of the time. Scary. Dark. Suspenseful. If it has an existential theme—something Nordic Noirish--so much the better!
4)    TV or books?
Half-half. I enjoy both immensely.
5)    Best movie you have watched in 2017 (so far)?
I’ve been glomming some very good television series this past year—thank you Netflix, Acorn, Amazon--and have hardly watched any movies, and I can’t say that I’ve truly loved any of the movies I have watched so far. 
6)    Best romance you read in 2017 (so far)?
It’s not a book that was published in 2017 but it’s one I read in 2017. Me Before You, by JoJo Moyes. You need to read this one with a box of tissues on the side. 
7)    A book you wish you had written?
This changes all the time. But at the moment it would be The Nightingale, or The Dry. 
8)    Favorite romance trope to read? 
I utterly adore the complexity of a powerful love triangle, where a seemingly impossible choice must be made.
9)    Favorite romance trope to write?
Reunion, I think. There is so much emotion woven into backstory that helps underscore romantic conflict from the get-go.
10) Favorite place to write?
My office. I’m lucky to have one. It has a view of trees and the mountains which are covered with snow in the winter, and in summer a basket of blooms hangs outside and I can glance up to watch birds and squirrels. My dog lies at my feet, and my cat on footrest under my desk while I work.
11) Your heroine that most closely resembles you?
Hmmm. Maybe Sarah/Olivia in A DARK LURE. Plus we share the same loner spirit, love for the outdoors, and love for a dog - a tracking dog :) 
12) A trait that all of your heroes must have?
Compassion. The courage to be gentle in their strength, or strong in their gentleness. They must always support my heroines but without trying to save them, because I want my heroines to save themselves.
13) A setting (city/region) you want to write about in the future?
The Dutch East Indies.
14) The actor and actress you used to physically model your H/h after in The Lullaby Girl?
I don’t really use models in that way. My characters are built inside my imagination. But … hey, I wouldn’t say no to a red-headed Jessica Chastain playing Angie.
15) Your favorite scene from The Lullaby Girl?
I don’t have one favorite scene.
16) A song that encapsulates the emotion of The Lullaby Girl?
A Goodreads reviewer posted her thoughts on The Lullaby Girl at the time Tom Petty died, and she said Petty wrote a song for Angie: I Won’t Back Down. I think I can live with that, because yes, it sums Angie Pallorino up.
17) What’s next?
Questions still linger around my Detective Kjel Holgersen, one of the supporting characters in my Angie Pallorino series. I’d like to deliver his story. But The Girl in The Moss, Angie Pallorino Book 3, is still to launch in June next year, and over these next few months I’ll be tackling an exciting project that promises to challenge me in new ways. There is an epic love story—a love triangle—at the core, where my characters face impossible, but very human choices against extraordinary circumstances. It’s something that is pushing me beyond my traditional comfort zone. Which is both a good thing and scary! I’m terribly excited about it so far, but the perennial writerly struggle remains: How to meet one’s own vision for an idea.
