My First Review ... EVER
I've never gotten a professional review of my work, so as you might imagine, I was sweating it—especially Publisher’s Weekly. But I received my PW review this weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be compared to the likes of some of my favorite authors—Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner and Tami Hoag. I couldn’t wait to share the good news.

No One Heard Her Scream Jordan Dane. Avon, $6.99 (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-125278-5
In a dynamite debut from Dane, San Antonio Det. Rebecca Montgomery fears the worst when her little sister, Danielle, is abducted during summer break on the Texas Gulf’s South Padre Island. Five months later, the discovery of a crime scene saturated with Dani’s blood indicates she’s been murdered. As more college co-eds go missing, Becca wants to stay on the case, but the department hands her a puzzler involving a young woman’s remains found within a wall of the torched Imperial Theater. They belong to Isabel Marquez, who’s been missing for almost seven years. Becca finds a surprising ally, and mutual attraction, in Diego Galvan, who works for slimy Hunter Cavanaugh, former owner of the Imperial and a prime suspect. Dane’s smooth style, believable characters and intense pacing will remind readers of Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner and Tami Hoag. While Dane’s debut is being marketed as romantic suspense, it crosses over into plain thriller country: the tight plotting and the male characters are exceptional, bad guys and good. (Apr.)
