It took me a while to find my groove for Dark Past. I originally started by listening to Hamilton, but anyone who's ever heard that soundtrack knows you just can't listen without singing along, so as much as I loved it I had to try something else. I used the Braveheart soundtrack for my last Highlander book, but that didn't feel right for a Romantic Suspense.
Then I heard a Sam Hunt song on the radio one day, and I knew that was it. Sam Hunt's "Break Up In A Small Town" was the one.
My new release Dark Past is set in a small town in Northern California, and I'd love to share what was running in the background as I wrote!
So let's do a quick playlist of what I've been writing to (I linked each song to youtube because it was easiest).
Sam Hunt's "Break Up In A Small Town" was on repeat for me for a while.
And one scene is absolutely perfect for "Ex to See" also by Sam Hunt.
Brantley Gilbert's "Bottom's Up"
Luke Bryan and Karen Fairchild's duet "Home Alone Tonight"
Luke Bryan's "Someone Else Calling You Baby"
Sam Hunt "Make You Miss Me"
Some more Sam Hunt with "Take Your Time"
Carrie Underwood's "Heartbeat"
Luke Bryan "Strip It Down"
Fallout Boy "My Song Knows What You Did in the Dark"
Sam Hunt "Leave the Night On" I mean really it was almost every single Sam Hunt song lol
During the climax and action scenes I actually went for instrumental selections with the How to Train Your Dragon 2 soundtrack.

But someone is following Kate...
Kyle worries he brought trouble to her door, while Kate worries her dark past is coming after her.
