Suzanne Ferrell tops today’s Buffet with Kidnapped, the first installment in her “Edgars Family” romantic suspense series.
Suzanne discovered romance novels in her aunt’s hidden stash one summer as a teenager. From that moment on she knew two things: she loved romance stories and someday she’d be writing her own. It took her a number of years and a secondary career as a nurse to finally start writing her own stories.
A double finalist in the Romance Writer’s of America’s 2006 Golden Heart with Kidnapped and Hunted, Suzanne has also won The Beacon Unpublished and the CTRWA’s contests in the erotica categories with her book The Surrender Of Lacy Morgan.

Mexico, Maine, 1963: The Wood family is much like its close, Catholic, immigrant neighbors, all dependent on the fathers’ wages from the Oxford Paper Company. But when Dad suddenly dies on his way to work, Mum and the four deeply connected Wood girls are set adrift. When We Were the Kennedys is the story of how a family, a town, and then a nation mourns and finds the strength to move on.
