Q&A with author Melissa Foster.Q: How is TRACES OF KARA different than your suspense novel, CHASING AMANDA?.MF: TRACES OF KARA is a much darker book than any of my others. I allowed Roland Greer to take me to his dark side, and I delve into his motivations in a much more complex way than I had with CHASING AMANDA. This is not just a women's fiction novel, this novel will satisfy men and women, and lovers of dark thrillers--some readers say a few scenes border on horror, but I'm not sure I agree with that. .Q: Is this book a stand-alone novel?.MF: I have had readers request a second book, to see what happens with Kara and Roland. I'm thinking about it. .Q: Does this book offer readers your typical emotionally compelling read?.MF: Definitely. This is more than a thriller. TRACES OF KARA delves into the mother-daughter relationship, the relationship between spouses, and between siblings. The emotions of the characters are raw and riveting..Q: What authors do you think this book is similar to?.MF: I think this book will resonate with readers who enjoy Tess Gerritsen, CJ Lyons, Lisa Gardner, and even readers of Lisa Scottoline and other women's fiction authors will enjoy the mother-daughter storyline. .Q: What's next for you?.MF: I've just published HAVE NO SHAME,  a book about forbidden love in the civil rights era. HAVE NO SHAME is not a thriller, like TRACES OF KARA. HAVE NO SHAME is a historical fiction/romantic suspense. ******

Kara Knight can't wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future--leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the twin she doesn't know exists is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget.

Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor's delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara's mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as her captor plays out his plan--to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again.
