Is It True: Targeted by @kelownawriter #romanticsuspense #RLFblog

Play Is It True with today's guest Beverley Bateman, author of Targeted, a Romantic Suspense. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
After and eleven-year absence Janna Kincaid inherits a ranch and is forced to return to a town she only remembers with unhappiness, a man to whom she was briefly married and never wants to see again, and someone is trying to kill her.
Kye Hawkins has loved Janna since he first met her. They were married but a few weeks later she ran away, without an explanation. He still hasn't figured out why. Now she's coming back. Does she still love him? Can he rekindle the romance and also prevent her from being killed?

Beverley Bateman started writing when the locked room murders were popular and loved to write a few of them. Recently she left the beautiful Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada with her husband and two Shiba Inu dogs for Medicine Hat, Alberta. It's smaller and more friendly. She lives there in the summer, and winters in Tucson, AZ away from the snow and cold. She writes in both places. Hunted, Missing and the newest – Targeted are part of her Montana series. She also has her Holly Devine series; A Cruise to Remember, and a Murder to Forget. Don't Go is her darker romantic suspense. And By Design, a medical thriller will be out soon.
