Jaime Lynn Hendricks’ debut novel, FINDING TESSA, was called “an anxiety fueled ride rife with unexpected left turns” by Publishers Weekly, and won a “Best of 2021” in the debut category from Suspense Magazine. It is also available in UK & Commonwealth under the title HIS MISSING WIFE.

IT COULD BE ANYONE, published in 2022, was described as “Riveting from its opening scene” by bestselling author Robyn Harding. New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica said it “starts with a bang and never lets up.” Publishers Weekly says, “Hendricks maximizes the suspense of her Clue-style premise, smoothly manipulating and misdirecting readers… Those who want the voyeuristic fun of crashing an over-the-top wedding --- without any of the hangover --- will be rewarded.” It is also available in UK & Commonwealth under the title HER HUSBAND'S MURDER.

Before writing thrillers, Jaime spent two decades in print media and marketing. She lives with her husband in Florida.
