  1. Eeee! I love a good thriller! I was “thrilled” to come across this post (tee-hee!). I am particularly drawn to the romantic thriller genre. I read an awesome one recently called “To Have and To Hold” by Ketley Allison. The book follows the kidnapping of Emme and it really puts the reader in her position. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time thinking “What would I do if I was Emme?” Little does she know that someone from her past is doing everything he can to find her. Not only did I LOVE this book I’m thrilled I happened upon the author because she has other books out that I’m excited to read as well. Check out her website: https://ketleyallison.com/
    Hope you check her out! She’s a great thriller writer for sure. Thanks again for your list!
