Linda Juliano Cadence Beach Blog Tour with Q/A and Giveaway

I am so excited to have Linda Juliano here at Paranormal and Romantic Suspense Reviews with a Q/A Post.

Linda Juliano is currently touring to promote her newest release Cadence Beach.

Thanks so much Linda and Goddess Fish Promotions for allowing me to join your blog tour.

Please take it away Linda!

1. Why does the demented killer think his murdered wife's soul has returned in Josie?

Allan (the killer) believes he has the power to allow the return of his wife’s soul simply because he desires her return. He doesn’t follow any logical or substantiated reasoning for his belief in spite of being an educated man.

The fact that Josie Gianni has the unfortunate luck (or bad luck) to physically resemble Suzanne (Allan’s dead wife) to an uncanny degree fosters Allan’s unwavering belief that Josie is the vessel Suzanne has chosento inhabit for her return.

2. Why is the demented killer trying to reclaim his wife's soul?

Allan murdered his wife after discovering she had a lover, but he “allows” Suzanne to return from the grave so she can atone for her sin of adultery by once again becoming his faithful wife. In his own sick way, he actually loves and misses Suzanne to a painful and all-consuming degree.

In murdering Suzanne with his bare hands while also being the last man to be intimate with her, Allan believes he’s erasing the interference of Suzanne’s adulterous behavior, insuring their connection as husband and wife for eternity. If she returns and betrays him again, their connection will be severed, and that’s something Allan will not allow.

Cadence Beach
by Linda Juliano


Soon after Josie Gianni moves to Cadence Beach, Oregon, she’s immediately thrust into a strange and chilling interplay with a demented stalker who believes the soul of the wife he murdered has returned through Josie.

Fueled by jealousy and fear of betrayal, the stalker's intentions grow increasingly dangerous when Josie falls for Gordon Forrester, the aloof, attractive owner of the local bookstore.

Will Josie's wit and Gordon's love save her, or will Josie fall victim to the madman's destructive behavior as he attempts to reclaim his wife's soul?

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I spent the first 24 years of my life living in a suburb of Portland, Oregon until I was offered a job with United Airlines that took me to San Francisco, CA where I subsequently met my husband and accepted San Francisco as my new home. As strikingly different as Oregon and California (San Francisco, particularly) are from one another, I have a great deal of love for them both.

After the first of my two children was born, I left my job with the airline to become a full-time mother (what an adventure!). When both children were well into school, I began my pursuit of a writing career, following my lifetime love of the craft. I’ve done some children’s stories and several poems, three of which have been entered into a poetry anthology, but found my place as a novelist despite my initial fears and reservations about taking on such a demanding form of writing.

Like most writers (or any artists, really), I’m happiest when I’m engaged with my craft, and for me that means constantly tapping in to the endless supply of story ideas roaming the corridors of my mind.

Every day is a journey with writing (as with life), and with each bit of knowledge I gain, I feel a growing sense of strength and accomplishment. Perusing this as a career is not an easy road, but one of my favorite quotes (from Hebrews 11:1) helps to ease some of the angst. “Faith is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead”.

It sounds suspenseful but possibly violent. Is there a lot of violence in it?
