Bombshell Susan Boyer

Susan Boyer sat down with me in a fun interview to celebrate her upcoming book, Lowcountry Bombshell. She explains what Lowcountry is, gives us her favorite “Boil” recipe and shares a ton of laughs. Please note, Susan actually WON the Agatha after filming. (I introduced her as an Agatha finalist in the tape). Not only that, but this USA Today bestselling author (and my friend, yay!!) has also been nominated for the Daphne and the MacCavity awards, too!

I’m so proud I could burst.

On Thursday, please stop by for more about the book, a blooper reel, Susan’s Agatha speech, and a special message from HARLAN COBEN to Susan. Oh, and even better, you’ll find out who won a copy of the first book in the series: Lowcountry Boil, which will be given away to anyone leaving a comment here (or at  (Note there is only one prize for both blogs, but you can leave a comment in both places for an extra chance to win.)

In the meantime, here is Susan’s Top Ten List of things that make her feel like a bomshell.



10. Finding the perfect shade of lipstick

9. Movie star sunglasses

8. Getting a bit blonder at the hands of my fabulous stylist, who is Italian and calls me beautiful with an awesome accent

7. Mani/pedis at my favorite salon, where they pour me a glass of champagne when I walk in (they do that for everyone, but still)

6. Slipping on a new dress in the dressing room and discovering it compliments my curves

5. Mango margaritas with the girls

4. Driving up to Starbucks and they already know my order (even if it’s because I’m that crazy woman who drives through in her pajamas with bed hair and sometimes talks to herself)

3. Singing karaoke in heels so high they only get worn for singing (well, and maybe one other thing)

2. Getting dolled up to go out with Sugar

1. The way Sugar looks at me when I get dolled up (even though we’ve been married for a way long time and my curves have fluffed out quite a bit over the years)

So to win a copy of Susan’s Lowcountry Boil, please leave a comment and let us know what makes YOU feel like a bombshell!

  1. Diana, thank you so much for doing this interview and for having me here on Kiss and Thrill today! This was SO much fun! It’s a thrill to be here! 🙂

  2. Congrats on your book Diana. It sounds great and would love to read it. The time I felt most like a bombshell was when still young my friend and I was walking down the side of a busy street and a guy stuck his head out the window of a back seat yelling how good we looked. The driver was also staring. We turned to ignore them and heard this big crash. Sure enough, they had hit a car in front of them. LOL. Thanks for sharing your time with us readers.

  3. Getting all dressed up to go out for a night on the town.

  4. Wearing false eyelashes to a publisher party! Great interview Diana! Congrats Susan and thanks so much for joining us at Kiss and Thrill. I can’t wait to read your books!

  5. Fabulous interview as always, Diana (you must have been a crack reporter in a past life.) And welcome Susan, congratulations on the Agatha!

    What makes me feel like a bombshell…Hmmm.
    An evening gown, high heels, full makeup, the ‘good’ jewelry. Said evening requires valet parking, a coat check claim, tuxedoed waiters holding trays of champagne/wine and that first moment you walk into the crowded room, knowing everyone just turned to look at the ‘new arrivals’.

    I posted an Oscar De La Renta ad on my FB page: b/w photo of the back of a striking woman with an up-do and a drop-dead gown. She’s walking sensuously down a hall. Ad copy: “Walk like you have three men walking behind you.”

    Yeah, that’s bombshell to me. 🙂

  6. Love it Sarah. I think Bombshell is in the way you feel about yourself, so I think that advice is right on target. Thanks for all the compliments. Just wait until Thursday!


  7. Great interview, Ladies! I loved Lowcountry Boil and can’t wait to read Bombshell! And on those days I want to be a bombshell I wear a pair of silver glitter stilettos. I just love them with a little black dress!

  8. Thanks for joining us at K&T, Susan! I used to work with a bunch of Italians. They weren’t very PC, but they were the best at making a woman feel good about herself. Like greeting me with, “Hey, pretty lady,” every day. (And that was my boss…) 😉

    Great interview, as always, Diana. Hmm, bombshell? I’m a super casual girl, but when you find a gown that makes you feel like a million bucks, it’s worth it to don heels and get dressed up.

  9. Susan, welcome to Kiss and Thrill! I loved loved loved Lowcountry Boil and can’t wait to read the sequel. (And I hear there will be sexytimes! 😉 I can’t wait to find out who Liz chooses and please let it be the guy I want her to choose…)

    Since I only rarely wear makeup, it doesn’t take much for me to feel like I’m releasing my inner (and deeply hidden) bombshell… just some eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick.

    • Rachel, thank you so much! Oh, yes, there are sexytimes. 🙂 And I predict you will be pleased with Liz’s choice. I can’t wait to find out!

      Since I work in my pajamas most days, I can relate to it not taking much to release your inner bombshell. 🙂

  10. A fun interview and a great list. What makes me feel like a bombshell is a glass of great wine and a bubble bath. And a book. I’ll have to add BOMBSHELL to my bath-time reading.

Thrill us with your wit...
