Vicki Tyley: an introduction


??????????????????????????????? The women in Tyley’s books are many women we know. At times confident, strong, and capable. And at times disillusioned, doubtful and insecure. One way or another they work their way through life finding their path through discovery and need, and rising to the necessity of challenges. They exhibit bravery and fearfulness, at times in equal measure for the same event.

Mystery, murder and suspense are all part of Vicki Tyley’s books but let’s not forget romance. Something sweet, longing and juicy that builds over time. There isn’t any bed-hopping by Tyley’s protagonists, at their core they know who they are. They believe in romance no matter how they have arrived at this place and time in their lives.

Overall, these women are determined. If someone they care about is in trouble they will help them. If they are missing they will find them, with or without the help of local authorities. If they discover a thread they will tug on it until the unravelling provokes a response. Often the result is unanticipated and sometimes calamitous.

Her books (five to date) are the kind of easy reads that win awards, Thin Blood having made Amazon’s 2010 best reads list. They are just what you need to take a break after a convoluted and exhausting novel. Go ahead, let Tyley take you where you need to be.
