Review quotes for SUSPICIOUS MINDS:

"5 Stars!...Will keep you reading right to the end. Kim Cox's characters are so well developed that you feel like you know them. The plot contains enough red herrings and spine-tingling chills to keep you rooted in the story."—Cathy Gladstone,

"4 ½ Daggers...This is an action-packed read with no time to catch a breath, no place to lay the book aside. There isn't a page you can afford not to turn. All the characters are vivid and alive. The plot is tight and engrossing. The ending is spectacular."—Lyn Lawrence, All About Murder

Liz Hello, Kim,

Thanks for the invitation to add you as a friend. I'm a romance/intrigue writer, too, and I've written a mystery series.

And...this is chainsaw carving territory, too. And Tarheel territory. In the 1930's a lot of people migrated from North Carolina to areas along the Skagit River to work i the timber industry. They brought a lot of their customs, too, and it has really added to the flavor of our county.

I look forward to continued interaction.

All best,
