Book Review and Giveaway: The Line Between Here and Gone

by Andrea Kane

Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child. Or was he?

One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches onto for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.

Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.

The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further the team digs into Paul’s past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all.

Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the Congressional halls of Washington D.C. to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.

Little do they realize that once Forensic Instincts takes the case, nothing will stop them from uncovering the shocking truth that transcends THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE.

And make sure to also check out this great Q&A with the author, Andrea Kane:
1. Q: What is your daily routine as a writer?
A: My day doesn't begin until I've had my morning cup of coffee. I love my new Keurig. It lets me brew one cup at a time so I can keep the fresh caffeine stream coming. Then I check emails and look at social media (Facebook, Twitter) before I start writing. I take frequent breaks to play with my Pomeranian or Google something for research.
2. Q: What is your favorite part of the writing process?
A: My favorite part is getting fan mail from my readers, letting me know my characters are as real to them as they are to me. I especially enjoy receiving feedback on my animal characters, since I’m such an animal lover. With the FI team, I’m thrilled that so many readers are attached to Hero. I have a feeling he will be center stage in future Forensic Instincts novels.
3. Q: Describe your latest book in 15 words or fewer.
A: A mother is desperately searching for the father of her newborn baby – hoping that he’s alive and is a donor match to save her critically ill son.
4. What inspired you to write THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE?
A: As with all my books, THE LINE, started out as flashes of the characters' lives playing out in my head. I saw a flash of an important male character who vanished without a trace and a critically ill infant whose life was integrally tied to his. But I didn't know why or how that would factor into FI's caseload. Those answers came later, after the baby’s mother crystallized in my mind.
5. Q: What sort of attachment do you have to your characters?
A: They become part of me, like family. The ending of a book is bittersweet. My characters are fully formed, have achieved some resolution in battling the trials and tribulations of life. Just when I’m ready to enjoy their creation, it’s time to say goodbye. Fortunately with Forensic Instincts, I get the chance to stay attached and further the FI team’s characters and stories in their next book.
