Kate is hiding out in Alaska. Of course she will stumble upon a murder, that is her luck. She is smart enough to look for help and hooks up with dishy detective Sam. I am not going to classify it as a romance, down and dirty time on the sheets does not equal love. I do see great potential for them in the future.

The story is engaging and connects with the first book. I am anticipating this will be a thread through this series. Kate hoping from location to location running from the bad guys. I ca

The continuation of the Kate Jones Adventure Series in Dead of Winter was just as good, if not better, than the first five.

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

Dead of Winter: A Kate Jones Thriller – A Book Review

Kate is still on the run. Anyone who helps her ends up dead. She has to keep running to survive. She has found a place she can call home, but it seems that they have found her again. She has to run, but will she make it out alive?

Like the other books in the series, this is a very fast paced story. There are moments where the story slows down for reflection or description,

Author DV Berkom with her Kate Jones stories delivers another action packed thrill ride. Poor Kate gets knee high in more than just snow as she escapes to Alaska to out run her ex Mexican cartel boyfriend. DV keeps her foot on full throttle for the whole story. You won't be able to catch your breath until you've finished it! Great read! Dead of Winter (The Kate Jones Adventure Series) by D.V. Berkom
Oct 20, 2012 Thomas rated it it was ok
This was well-written, but I felt I got gypped. It was a 15 minute read and doesn't even qualify as a short story in my opinion, let alone a book. There was no background and no character or story development. I found out aftere reading, that this was the second in a series. Maybe if I had read the first "chapter", I would have liked the second one better!
