Q&A with Rebecca Zanetti, Author of Deadly Silence

Rebecca Zanetti is the author of over twenty-five romantic suspense, dark paranormal, and contemporary romances. Her new Blood Brothers romantic suspense series has elements of mysteries and thrillers that make this a great crossover hit!

Rebecca has taken time out of her busy schedule to answer some of CrimeHQ's questions about what she's currently reading, what stories inspired her as a child, and why her new book will resonate well with mystery fans.

What do you want readers to think or feel after finishing this book?

Truly entertained and looking forward to the next book in the series. I hope they’ve been surprised by a couple of the plot twists, and I hope they’re happy with the way the book was wrapped up.

What would be your murder weapon of choice?

That’s such an intriguing question. Probably a cliff.

What are you currently reading?

Right now, I’m reading Sting by Sandra Brown.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

Fun question! I just started watching Season 3 of The Black List. I’m getting caught up while recording season 4.

Describe Deadly Silence in five words.

Intriguing, sexy, twisted, surprising, sweet

What crime and mystery writers did you grow up reading? 

I hate to date myself here, but Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Hardy Boys, and Dean Koontz come instantly to mind. I also read my share of Agatha Christie. These days, I like to read Mary Burton, John Grisham, Lisa Jackson, and Karin Slaughter.

Who is your favorite fictional crime solving sleuth?

That’s a tough one, but I’m going with Nancy Drew. Her independence and ability to fight crime on her own inspired me as a kid.

A lot of the books you write could be classified as romance. What makes Deadly Silence a good fit for mystery fans?

There’s a question in Deadly Silence of who the bad guy ultimately is, and that’s often the heart of any good mystery. The how and why are important as well, but I love a book where the who isn’t clear until the twist-filled plot leads to an ending.
