A high-stakes romantic thriller by Suzy Accola, Janie Blue takes readers through a tangled web of excitement and mystery. The Idea Boutique worked with Suzy to proofread her novel and bring her story to the finish line. Its team of graphic designers and editors worked to promote this publication in every professional sense. Janie Blue’s cover art was designed by art director Sally Neal of The Idea Boutique and is a clever and creative take on a key component in the story.
When the Past Catches Up to You…
A sophisticated socialite, Ella Carmichael seems to have it all—Jackie O good looks, a handsome husband whose political career is on the rise, loving parents, and a beautiful home just outside Seattle. Still, the recesses of her mind hold a secret she is unaware of until a fateful bump to the head.
Janie Blue, on the other hand, is a free spirit open to adventure with a penchant for knocking the socks off any man she meets—including the charming Chase O’Leary, who comes to her rescue on his way to Sin City.
Between Chase’s line of work, Ella’s narcissistic husband, and Janie’s past, a tangled web of lies, fraud, and murder weaves through the Mojave Desert to the Pacific Northwest, daring anyone to cross its path.
“This high-stakes thriller offers a great balance of romance, mystery, and edge-of-your-seat action. It’s the perfect summer read!”
—Jordan Staggs, editor of VIE magazine / VIE Book Club
“Bourne meets Goodfellas meets Gone Girl. With vivid images of salty characters, Accola’s gripping debut novel makes an excellent non-fluffy beach read. It is also tailor-made for the big screen.”
—Susan Emack Alison, former copy chief of Southern Living, Cottage Living, and Coastal Living magazines
