Friday, November 7, 2014




This is the second book I have read by this author-the first being Fair Disclosure Click on the link and see what I had to say--yes, I liked it! This is another great mystery which I had trouble putting down once I started reading it. There are 2 more books in this series I have not yet read-but had no trouble at all reading this as a stand alone.

Brynn Bancroft and one of her co-workers had been brutally attacked by a former employee where they work. They have just been informed that the woman has been seen back in the area. Brynn, who is getting ready to leave her job for another one is also trying to help her ex husband start his winery. This was an amicable divorce and they have remained very good friends.

When the stalker manages to get into Brynn's home things to heat up. How does this woman know Brynn's whereabouts? Will Brynn be able to put her past behind her and learn what emotions are. Will she end up in Alabama or will she opt for working at the winery? You know I'm going to leave you hanging and yes I really really think you should read this book-the entire series actually. I do have two more I have to get my hands on!!



NEW RELEASE.....

A mystery set in wine country pitting financial exec Brynn Bancroft against a
determined stalker, a troubled love interest, and career clashes.



Brynn Bancroft learns that a former employee who beat her nearly to death
has returned to stalk her and her friend, Jillian Hillcrest, also a former victim.



Recently divorced, Brynn turns to a new love interest only to encounter additional unwelcome issues. Meanwhile, short-timer Brynn, who has resigned from her Silicon Valley company, becomes bored fulfilling her remaining responsibilities there. She begins to prefer supporting the launch of her ex-husband’s new hilltop winery while waiting to move to her next position. Between her stalker and her new love interest, Brynn faces a series of life-changing events.

About Brynn Bancroft
Brynn Bancroft evolved from the Jillian Hillcrest mysteries where she served as Jillian’s manager while Chief Financial Officer of Harmonia Therapeutics in Silicon Valley. A shapely blonde with a MENSA IQ, she had an affair with the CEO of the company. Unfortunately for Brynn, the CEO’s wife figured out that the two were involved and asked Brynn to leave the company, which she agreed to do. In the meantime, her husband, Liam—not unfamiliar with extramarital affairs himself but also understanding that Brynn grew up in an abusive household- grew tired of waiting for Brynn to commit to their relationship and asked for a divorce. At the same time, he solicited her assistance in developing his new winery in Sonoma County, Calif. Much like Jillian--who does appear in the Brynn Bancroft mysteries--Brynn, too, attracts mystery and murders as she grows to enjoy life at her ex-husband’s Hilltop Sunset Winery.

About the Author
Joyce Strand, much like her fictional character Jillian Hillcrest, served as head of corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing articles and press releases and delivering presentations to publicize her companies.



Joyce has been a mystery fan since she read her first Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy stories as a teen-ager. She has always enjoyed the challenge of following clues to solve a mystery before it is revealed. Therefore Joyce relished the transition from writing press releases to writing fiction.



Joyce received her Ph.D. from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA.   She lives with her two cats in Southern California near San Diego.

It sounds like Brynn really doesn't know what she wants, and is so self-centered. I'd want to throw something at her!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review Hilltop Sunset. As an author, I learn from your insight. Most of all, I know how long it takes to read and write about a book--and I value that time. And I trust that you'll enjoy the next Brynn Bancroft mystery as she continues to "grow up."
