Meet today’s guest, Carolyn Arnold.

She is an international bestselling and award-winning author, as well as a speaker, teacher, and inspirational mentor. She has four continuing fiction series and has written nearly thirty books. Both her female detective and FBI profiler series have been praised by those in law enforcement as being accurate and entertaining, leading her to adopt the trademark, POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT™.

Today, she answers a few questions for us and gives us insight into her life and journey as a mystery author.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?I don’t remember back as far as a young child, but as a young adult, I either wanted to be a defense attorney, a police officer, or a journalist. As a crime author, I’ve really become a blend of all three. LOL

If you had one wish, what would that be?That people would use their energy for building other people up and that the world could unite, accepting each other’s differences, even when there’s not the threat of an alien invasion or global destruction. ;)

How do you develop your plots and your characters? Do you use any set formula?I write organically or go with the flow. Writing in this manner is also known as panster-style. If I set out to write an outline—even a brief one—my creativity stops.

When I start writing a book, I normally only have the concept of the plot. Most times I don’t even know who the killer is and I never know in advance how I’m getting my investigators to their door.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a published author?It will take a lot of hard work, likely more than you can imagine until you’re immersed in the process, but there is no need to get overwhelmed. Take one day at a time and keep your focus on how much you enjoy writing and how you are writing for the readers who will love to read you.

I received this book to give an honest review.

I have to say I think I found a new author to read. Though this book is number 5 I didn't feel as though I was missing anything by not reading the previous books. For that I am very grateful for! 
A vacation to California for Agent Paige turns into something else and it will be up to the FBI to believe one of their own and solve the murder that has happened. 
I really liked how teamwork played a really good part in this. No one just went off on their own to find answers, no ones idea was too crazy. 
As far as characters go they felt well developed and even with the small feelings that were going on between Agent Paige and Agent Brandon it felt real.
The way everything was written and handled in solving the case and clearing Agent Paige's name you can tell the author did her research on the procurers.
As far as the killer I was very surprised that the killer was an individual I wouldn't have thought of. You always think either male or female in a case especially one that kills as graphic as this was done. So having that twist was awesome, and with Agent Zach giving some information was nice. 
I will be reading more by this author not only because of her ability to pull you into the story but her writing style is on point.
