Please welcome my guest, Leanna Sain.
Leanna, why did you write Red Curtains?
Dead bodies, fake money and falling in love were NOT part of the assignment.
Cleo Davis must find a model for her senior art project or she won’t graduate. When she discovers Lily Telfair-Gordon, she gets more than just an eccentric old woman who spouts famous quotes, talks to ghosts, and wears a weird hat. Lily has unwittingly stumbled upon a counterfeiting ring, and Cleo gets dragged right into the middle of it.
Jonas Holmes, an investigative reporter for the local paper, is asking the question: why do bodies of homeless men keep showing up in the river? But the homeless are scared and won’t talk to him. When he finds Cleo and Lily, he thinks his problems are solved; he doesn’t realize that they’re just
While romance blossoms between Cleo and Jonas, they work together to see how the two things are connected, but will they find out before it’s too late?
North Carolina native, Leanna Sain, earned her BA from the University of South Carolina, then moved back to her beloved mountains of western NC with her husband. Her “Gate” books have stacked up numerous awards, from Foreword Magazine’s Book-of-the-Year to the Clark Cox Historical Fiction Award from the North Carolina Society of Historians. Sain’s fourth novel, WISH, is a stand-alone, YA crossover.
Her Southern romantic suspense or “GRIT-lit,” showcases her plot-driven method of writing that successfully rolls the styles of best-selling authors Mary Kay Andrews, Nicholas Sparks, and Jan Karon into a delightfully hybrid style that is all her own. Regional fiction lovers and readers who enjoy suspense with a magical twist will want her books.

Savannah is such a fascinating Southern city! Great setting for just about any story,but yours sounds so compelling. Homelessness is a growing social problem and the more aware of it we are, the more we can do to alleviate it. Best wishes!
Thanks! Hope you’ll try Red Curtains and share it with your friends.
Savannah is my new favorite place. I’m fascinated by the history of it. Love all the old homes. So glad Savannah wasn’t one of Sherman’s “burn towns.”
Welcome to my blog, Leanna. Your book sounds wonderful.
Thank you so much, Barbara. I so appreciate your having me on your blog. I’m excited you’re a part of launching my new baby out into the world.
