Love, Lust, and Prizes

Strange as it sounds, I don’t recall there being a previously declared rundown of nominees for the 2015 RT (Romantic Times) Reviewers Choice and Career Achievement Awards. Yet this week brings word of the prize recipients in … well, myriad categories. The one of greatest interest to Rap Sheet followers is presumably Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, which offers up the following winners:

Contemporary Mystery: The Forgotten Girls, by Sara Blaedel (Grand Central)
Historical Mystery: Jade Dragon Mountain, by Elsa Hart (Minotaur)
First Mystery: The Unquiet Dead, by Ausma Zehanat Khan (Minotaur)
Suspense: In a Dark, Dark Wood, by Ruth Ware (Galley)
Thriller: The Bone Labyrinth, by James Rollins (Morrow)
Amateur Sleuth: Gone But Knot Forgotten, by Mary Marks (Kensington)

In addition, three contributors to this genre were named as Career Achievement winners: Rhys Bowen (Historical Mystery), Janet Evanovich (Mystery), and Carla Neggers (Romantic Suspense).

These awards are set to be handed out during next month’s RT Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
