Editorial Reviews

Review

The Good Daughter: A Romantic Times Indie Press/Self-Published Contemporary Romance nominee.

Praise for Diana Layne, a Golden Heart® Finalist
:

4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK!! : Calling this book "old-school Jackie Collins with a Gotti twist and enough heat to melt Alaska" still doesn't begin to describe how explosive it is. This is a turn-off-all-electronic-devices, one-sit read, with impressive characters, a transfixing plot and enough breathtaking action to knock your socks off! Layne has star power in spades.
~DIANE MORASCO, RT Book Reviews

There are two love stories in this book -- the budding one between Dave and Marisa, and the established relationship between Nia and Sandro. Both romantic story lines are well developed and engaging. But what really caught my attention in this book was the masterful depiction of the two female characters, Marisa and Nia. Both are strong, smart, and sympathetic, using their wits and whatever skills they have to survive in dangerous circumstances.
~VANESSA KELLY, Love Rocks Column


"With THE GOOD DAUGHTER, Diana Layne delivers all the elements of a classic romantic suspense--fast pace, a layered and twisty plot, memorable characters and the perfect balance of sensuality. An exceptionally well-executed element of Mafia culture combined with a high level of danger make the book fresh and impossible to put down."
~LINDA CASTILLO, New York Times bestselling author of BREAKING SILENCE

From the Author

Author Q&A:

Q. Which order should I read the Vista Security Series?
A. Each Vista Security Series book is stand alone, although there is an overarching suspense story that unites the Vista Security team a little more in each book as they come together to save the world and sometimes fall in love along the way. The Good Daughter: A Mafia Thriller introduces characters that have a huge role all through most of the series. Trust No One: A Spy Thriller introduces more characters that are important to the team, whereas Edge of Trust: A Spy Thriller has all the characters working together for the first time. As for Nia, Be Mine? I'll explain about that when answering the next question.

Q. Why does the cover of Nia, Be Mine look different than the other Vista Security Series books?
A. Nia, Be Mine, shown here as book 4 because of series numbering limitations, can be read at any time as well,  although this story takes place years before the Vista Security Series officially begins. I wrote it in response to readers wanting to know more about the characters in The Good Daughter: A Mafia Thriller. Nia, Be Mine is mainly a love story, telling the romance of two of the main characters, as well as introducing other characters who later appear in The Good Daughter: A Mafia Thriller and then throughout the Vista Security Series. As a romance, with only a touch of suspense, I opted for a different cover. But if you're like me, you'll love knowing more about the lives of these characters and you'll get a hint of how it all started.

Q. Do you have anything else to add?
A. Want to read more stories about the Vista Security team that gives a lot more background information on the characters? Sign up for my newsletter and receive a free book of exclusive bonus stories that adds depth and background to many of the characters that appear in the series, as well as deepens the suspense. (And as a *bonus* bonus, I have included a story with characters that appear in Pirate's Proposal.) This is a book of over 100 pages of exclusive stories. Go to dianalayne.com to sign up for my mailing list and receive your free copy.

Q. In addition to the free stories, what else will I get on your mailing list?
A.  You'll get:
*    Work in Progress updates
*    Sneak previews
*    Cover reveals
*    Tidbits about a writer's life
*    News of sales (my books and other writers' books I think you might like)
*    And an occasional survey so I will know what it is that you are most interested in.

Q. How can I follow you on social media?
A. I am everywhere!
If you are absolutely not interested in the free book of exclusive bonus stories or being on my mailing list, you can also get news of my new releases by following me on:
