Burning Hearts by Nike Chillemi, the Crime Fictionista

Guest Post by Jennifer Slattery

Nike Chillemi is the Crime Fictionista, combining crime, fiction and faith into gripping, page flipping stories that will send shivers up your spine. She has one of those instantly recognizable voices, presenting vivid imagery and witty dialogue throughout the novel perfectly suited to each character. When I read her work, I have a tough time deciding which I enjoy more, the story or the unique presentation.

Burning Hearts:

Can a sheltered young seamstress, disillusioned by the horrors of WWII, escape an arsonist/murderer who has killed her employer and mentor, while trying to decide if she can trust the dashing war hero who’s ridden into town on his Harley—who some say is the murderer?

Erica Brogna’s parents doted on her and taught her to think for herself. Many boys she grew up with have fallen in the war, shaking her childhood faith. In rides a handsome stranger, at the hour of her most desperate need. A woman who is her best friend and mentor is trapped in a burning house. After making an unsuccessful rescue attempt, Erica stands by as this man rushes into the inferno and carries her friend’s lifeless body out.

Lorne Kincade can’t out run his past on his Harley Davidson WLA, the civilian model of the motorcycle he rode in the war. He’s tried. He’s been a vagabond biker in the year since the war ended. His Uncle Ivar bequeathed him a ramshackle cottage in Sanctuary Point, on the Great South Bay of Long Island, NY and now he’d like to hope for a future again, repair the miniscule place, and settle down. The only problem is, a young woman with hair the color of mink is starting to get under his skin and that’s the last thing he needs.

"Right from the start, BURNING HEARTS captured my imagination and tweaked my curiosity. Nike Chillemi certainly knows how to set a scene and ignite excitement."

I'm thrilled to be featured on this blog. How nice to get to know everyone.

I ought to mention that BURNING HEARTS is an Ebook. So, what I wanted to do for a giveaway is give a $5 Starbucks card. That way those who don't have an e-device to read with won't be left out. Hope that's OK with everyone.
