Fault Lines starts off with a premise that readers would (erroneously) think as rose-y: a wedding coordinator meets a photographer. But it is not a cotton candy romance, far from it. I was curious and intrigued so I had to ask Rebecca:
How did the idea come to you to mix the usually pastel colours and fluffy frosting world of wedding planners with haunted characters and a darker romance? What were the challenges of venturing away from the beaten path? Weren't you afraid you might shock or scare readers away?
Fault Lines by Rebecca Rogers Maher
Sarah Murphy plans other people’s weddings. She’s gorgeous and successful, but she also carries a dark secret.
At one of her events, she meets Joe Sullivan, a sexy photographer with a difficult past of his own. When he snaps a rare unguarded photograph of her and captures the real person hiding behind the facade, she feels exposed. To restore the upper hand, she tries to do what she always does: use sex to defuse the situation.
While Joe is eager to deepen his relationship with Sarah,
he’s aware of her emotional shield and the way she disconnects from her body. Seeing her at her most vulnerable doesn’t scare him off, but he needs to know what she’s hiding.
Sarah has a tough decision to make. Does she want to go on living a lonely, emotionally frozen life? Or can she finally risk revealing the truth and move forward with Joe?
