DARKEST HOUR by Nike Chillemi



My WRITER OF THE DAY is Nike Chillemi.  Nike and I go way back….we’ve never met in person, but we’re in some of the same writing groups and we’ve often helped each other out. So, I’m very excited to have her here. Nike has put together a great giveaway for one of my readers.  She’s going to give away a copy of each of her earlier novels in the Sanctuary Point series–that’s three books!  These are ebooks,, just so you know. To win the books, leave a comment. The winner will be chosen on April 1.

Like so many writers, Nike started writing at a very young age. She still has the Crayola, fully illustrated book she penned (penciled might be more accurate) as a little girl about her then off-the-chart love of horses. Today, you might call her a crime fictionista. Her passion is crime fiction. She likes her bad guys really bad and her good guys smarter and better.

Her latest release, Darkest Hour is the fourth in the Sanctuary Point series, a murder mystery sent in the  late-1940s and, of course, there’s a touch of romance. A widow is framed by powerful people but she didn’t pull the trigger. Can she find out who?

Here are the opening lines from DARKEST HOUR:

Lucinda Byrne backed further away from the dead body of her boss, the sides of his suit jacket wide open. Blood oozed from a hole in the center of his chest and spread over the front of his white dress shirt and yellow tie. Dark, angry red… sticky…

OOOH…sounds good to me!

DON’T FORGET, leave a comment if you want to be entered to win the book package.  And here’s a question to answer if you can’t think of anything to write: What do you enjoy most when reading historical fictions?

By the way, if you’re wondering, DEE was the winner of Matthew R. Horn’s book from last week’s giveaway.  Congratulations, DEE.
