Balkan Echo Locked and Loaded

Everything is GO for my new Romantic Suspense novel, Balkan Echo. You can order the ebook or paperback here.

An anonymous tipster warns investigative TV journalist Meredith Montgomery that a Bosnian Serb terrorist is walking the streets of Chicago. The informant fears that the man’s target is the Bosnian Muslims who have found refuge at the northside Islamic Community Center.
The FBI is not interested in an unconfirmed sighting of a man who committed war crimes twenty-five years ago, but Meredith feels there is a big story here. And a threat. It becomes her job to warn the public. But first, she must uncover the facts.
She is not without baggage of her own—vulnerabilities and traumas that she is hesitant to reveal to the inscrutable research analyst, Aubrey Kettering, who teams up with her. Surprisingly, he discloses that he speaks Serbo-Croatian and has ties to the Serbian community. When Meredith’s life is threatened, he will not leave her side. The investigation carries them on a terrifying ride into the life and mind of Zoran Duric whom they fear is a ticking time bomb.
When the story leads them to Sarajevo, they barely escape with their lives. But their peril is only beginning. The twenty-five-year-old war is still simmering beneath the surface. Will its hatreds spill over into America?
As they dodge assassination attempts, Meredith and Aubrey forge a tight emotional bond. Despite the chaos around them, her heart is healing. Aubrey has long since fallen in love with her. But will they survive the danger that stalks them?
