The second Kate Jones Thriller
The next novella in the Kate Jones thriller Series, DEAD OF WINTER, picks up where BAD SPIRITS leaves off-
Kate Jones is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar's men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.
What she gets is Sam, an enigmatic officer with a mysterious past who's been assigned to watch over her as the hunt for the killers deepens.
Sam and Kate's obvious attraction to each other becomes a dangerous complication as Kate realizes the only way she can stay alive is to leave Alaska, trying to keep one step ahead of Salazar.
Review by Vicki Drake, author: "...I love the Kate Jones series. Kate is a woman I can identify with and in this installment we are treated to a bit of a romance between her and Sam. I can't say enough about Sam's character. This is a short story not focused on him, but his character development is superb. He's not the typical hunky hero who feels a bit like a cardboard cut out, he's three dimensional and believable. I wanted these two people to get it on!
D.V. Berkom does a fantastic job keeping Kate level headed and focused on keeping herself alive while developing the doomed romance. Add to that the non-stop action and you have a story that's impossible to put down. Excellent! More, give me more!" Vicki Drake, author
Review by T.M. Hobbs, author: "The continuation of the Kate Jones Adventure Series in Dead of Winter was just as good, if not better, than Bad Spirits.
Ms. Berkom captures the readers attention from the beginning and maintains that captivating tension throughout the entire story. Kate is a brave and self-reliant person, but life on the run can be lonely.
She has made it a point never to get too close to anyone, until she meets Sam. Ms. Berkom's characterization of Sam is perfect and I found myself as taken by his character as Kate was.
The imagery in Dead of Winter was amazing with the location being in Alaska and the research I'm certain Ms. Berkom put into this book was extensive. She described the trees, shrubbery, and details of Kate's surroundings in this beautiful, though harsh territory, with such detail and vividness that I could almost smell the surroundings.
What is in store for Kate next, as she continues her life on the run looking over her shoulder in hopes that she can see death coming and avoid it at all costs.
I look forward to the next instalment of these wonderful stories from Ms. Berkom."
