SPIRITED Away with Mary Behre

A Tidewater Novel
Berkley Sensation

She’s running from who she is…

All Jules Scott wants is to live a normal, quiet life–preferably one that doesn’t include ghosts. Jules’s ability for communicating with the dead has brought her nothing but trouble. Despite her best efforts, needy spirits always find her and draw her into their otherworldly drama. When one implicates her in a series of deadly crimes, she may need to entrust her secrets to the person least likely to believe her…

He’ll do whatever it takes to catch her.

Detective Seth English can’t get distracted from the big case he’s working on, not even by his alluring new neighbor. He doesn’t believe that Jules had anything to do with the string of robberies-turned-murders that he’s investigating, but when she keeps showing up in all the wrong places, his gut tells him she knows more than she’s letting on. To solve his case, he’ll need to expose what the sexy redhead is hiding–no matter how impossible the truth may be…

Read a little, Buy the book

MARY BEHRE is the lone female in a house full of males and the undisputed queen of her domain. She even has the glittery tiara to prove it. She loves stories with humor, ghosts, mysteries and above all else, a good romance. When not writing, she enjoys reading, gluten-free baking, and hanging out at the beach with the most important men in her life, her family.

Her debut paranormal romance, SPIRITED (Tidewater Novel #1) was an award-winning manuscript before it sold to Berkley Sensation. The Tidewater Series is mix of humor, suspense, and a psychic love-connection. The first three stories are about three sisters separated years before in the foster care system. As they search for love, each other, and a way to live with their psychic abilities, they're tossed into the middle of mysteries that only their unique gifts can help solve.

ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
MARY: Every chance I get! J If I’m not writing, I’m reading. Even if I’m driving, I’m reading…well, listening to a book.
ANGI: What’s the first book you remember reading? 
MARY: HORTON HATCHES THE EGG…Dr. Seuss was my hero.

ANGI: What’s your favorite “love” word?
MARY: Love. I’m a traditionalist. I want to hear those three words. In my house we say them often because real love never gets old.

ANGI: Can you tell us about a real-life hero you’ve met?
MARY: I worked for the American Red Cross for years. On May 25, 2001, the movie PEARL HARBOR released in theaters. I was invited to dress as WWII Red Cross nurse and greet actual veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack at the movie’s screening. I met a Marine who enlisted at age 16 (he lied about his age to get into the military) who went from being the new man on the ship to a gunner in the space of a few hours. It was the most moving experience of my life.
ANGI: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
MARY: Horton the Elephant.

ANGI: What sound or noise do you love?
MARY: The sound of my children laughing. They have such great laughs.

ANGI: Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
MARY: Action Adventure, definitely.

ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
MARY: It’s A Wonderful Life by Frank Capra. There’s so much in that movie that you can watch it every year for twenty years and still catch something new each time.

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: What is your favorite, favorite thing about SPIRITED?
MARY's GOTTA ANSWER:   The hallway scene after Seth and Jules meet for the first time. Cracks me up every time.

Book 2 in the Tidewater Series
releases August 5, 2014

This book is about Shelley, Jules’s middle sister.
She’s given up on finding love…
Veterinarian Shelley Morgan has always preferred animals to humans, and not simply because she can communicate with them psychically. Unlike most people she’s known, animals have never broken her heart. But after six months in her new town, some of her favorite four-legged companions begin disappearing from the local zoo. Determined to track down the animals and their thief, the telepathic vet decides to investigate, unknowingly delving into a deadly mystery…

He’s ready to make her heart go wild…
Although his bear-like physique has been an advantage in the Tidewater Police Department, Dev Jones’s size often intimidates people. Only Shelley has seen past his massive build to the intelligent man inside, but that was years ago. So when she contacts him requesting his help to solve a series of animal kidnappings, he’s eager to reconnect with her. But the thefts escalate to murder and all the evidence points to Shelley as the killer, and Dev faces a devastating choice: forsake his career or risk losing the woman he’s grown to love…
