Interview with NY Times Bestselling Author, Elizabeth Lowell (Part 2)

With: Elizabeth Lowell

Elizabeth Lowell has been writing since the early seventies, counting over seventy novels to her name (many co-written with her husband Evan Maxwell) with over thirty million copies of her books in print in thirty foreign languages. One of her best-represented fields is romance and romantic suspense, which she helped create in the late eighties with her book TELL ME NO LIES. And she hasn't stopped since then, continuing to tell stories of romance and action that thrill readers of both genres.

Her latest book is PERFECT TOUCH, featuring an ill-fated romance set against both the world of high-stakes Western art and the stark beauty of the Wyoming wilderness. PERFECT TOUCH comes out July 28, and previews of the book are available at her website: elizabethlowell.com.

PERFECT TOUCH

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell plunges into the world of Sara Medina, who lifted herself from a childhood of poverty to become a successful art dealer. Sara provides the perfect touch for the homes of her wealthy clients. After watching her mother cope with too many children and too little money, Sara vowed never to make the mistake of marriage.

Jay Vermilion has recently inherited the family’s Wyoming cattle ranch, and with it the wars his father had fought with his second wife. The heart of the battle is a collection of paintings by Armstrong “Custer” Harris.

When Sara and Jay meet over the paintings, their mutual attraction is an unhappy surprise. They know they are wrong for each other. Then two murders happen on the Vermillion ranch. When it appears that Sara is next on the deadly list, Jay goes hunting for the killers as she works desperately to find the secret the murders were meant to hide.
