Canelo has acquired two compelling, edge-of-your-seat thrillers by Jaime Lynn Hendricks

April 29, 2021

Commissioning editor Leodora Darlington has acquired UK & Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) to two gripping new thrillers by debut author Jaime Lynn Hendricks from Linda Biagi at Biagi Rights Management in a two-book deal.

The first of the newly acquired novels, His Missing Wife, is an unputdownable thriller that reviewers have described as ‘everything I wanted Gone Girl to be’. In Jaime Lynn’s sparkling debut, James comes home one day to discover that his wife, Tessa, is missing, her blood on the kitchen floor. It seems clear that something terrible has happened to her. But what he doesn’t know is that not only is his wife very much alive, she’s out for revenge, too. The only question is whose secrets will destroy them first.

Jaime Lynn Hendricks is an author with nearly 20 years’ experience in print media and marketing. His Missing Wife is her first novel. She lives with her husband in New Jersey.

Leodora Darlington says: ‘Jaime’s debut novel is already receiving rave reviews, and it’s easy to see why. His Missing Wife is a ‘just one more chapter’, twist-filled, jaw-dropping, mind-blowingly good thriller. Jaime Lynn has a unique talent for keeping readers on their toes, and I’m thrilled to be working with her on her first novels.’

Jaime Lynn Hendricks says: ‘Just when I thought 2020 was going to be a blip in the radar in the world, I signed with Scarlet Suspense for distribution of my debut novel. Fast forward to 2021, their amazing team was able to secure a deal for UK distribution with Canelo. For a debut novelist, this is a dream come true and I can’t wait for readers to fall in love with my characters and the tricky situations they get themselves into… and out of.’

His Missing Wife will be published on 11th May 2021 in ebook format. For more information please contact
