Julie barely has time to delve deeper into the puz ...more

While I enjoyed Snow Blind parts of it left me dissatisfied, I wish those things had turned out differently. That said, I'm still going to miss this series and characters. It was a really enjoyable ride solving mysteries with Julie and watching her relationship with Tony progress.

ARC provided by author but that has not influenced my review

Wow! Julie and Tony really put out some heat. It's a wonder there was any snow on the ground. While the mystery was intriguing, the ending left me looking for more. I hope that there will be more Julie Collins books in the future, because there is so much more to her story.

Trying to write reviews about Lori Armstrong’s PI Julie Collins’ Series is challenging even though I love every book. The books are so similar in their complexity, character development, intrigue and relationships that I tend to use the same superlatives to describe them all. Armstrong creates page turners every time. I devoured the whole series within a few days completing one books and jumping right into the next.

Snow Blind is everything I expect from this series. I grew up in Wyoming, not fa

I really enjoyed all 4 Julie Collins books and I can't pick a favorite because they are all unique in their storyline. This series kept me guessing who the bad guy was up until the end of each book. I hate that this was the last one. I am going to miss Julie, Tony, Kevin and the rest of the motely cast of secondary characters.

Whether she is writing as Lori Armstrong or Lorelei James, L has the ability to put her readers right there in the story, all of her stories are fresh, different and addict

I absolutely loved this series. I only wish that Lori had written more about Julie. She was the toughest badass around and I loved her. These books gave me great pleasure and they made it to my list to read over and over again. Please bring Julie back. I want more!

As sorry as I am to see this series end, this book leaves things in a good place. There's room for another book if she comes back to it, but if not, the series is strong and solid with a satisfying conclusion. (I will, of course, hope that Julie Collins turns up again somewhere, sometime.)

This isn't the last one, is it??!! I want more Julie and Tony. I want a better resolution with Kevin. I want Julie to just once punch her dad in the face. :) Love this series!

This is the fourth book in the Julie Collins Series and it did not disappoint. The book follows a rather grumpy woman who with her best friend Kevin works as private investigators but nearly always bad luck follows her, even though she has all good intentions to help.

The last book in this series put some of Julie’s old demons to bed when she discovered who actually murdered her half-brother and now Julie should be able to be at rest but no she is more lost than ever. Until one day in walks Kevin

I really enjoyed reading all 4 of the Julie Collins books. I thought that book 4 was a great ending to the series. Although there were points in the book that left me a bit unfulfilled, it was still a wonderful series. I had mixed feelings about Julie in Tony in the previous books but in book 4 I was happy with the turnout. I am looking forward to the other series written by Lori Armstrong.

Since I don't typically venture outside of romance I really didn't know I was setting in store for myself with this series but Oh My Gosh! This series was OUTSTANDING. I'm sad to see it end. There are 2 follow-up novellas that I do plan to read but hopefully Ms. Armstrong will decide to continue with the series and write new Julie novels.

The culmination of the Julie Collins story with this twisting and turning mystery romance series. Julie is a survivor in so many ways you don't want to miss how it ends! Always love Lori Armstrong aka Lorelei James check out this one and all her work. Amazing!

Oh how I love this series! This isn't a sugary sweet romance series....Julie Collins is a tough, determined, smart ass who doesn't let anyone get in her way. Love her! The romance between Julie and Tony isn't all hearts and flowers....Tony lives in a violent world and due to her involvement with him and her PI cases, Julie finds herself in many life and death situations. This story is full of action, suspense, mystery, and so many twists and turns. The characters are great....I love Kevin, Jimme ...more

Poor Julie, she’s twisted up in this book trying to decide if her father is guilty of murder and if she should use her PI skills to help him prove his innocence or find out who the true murderer is. She’s also caught up in a web associated with her boyfriend’s motorcycle club. So sad this is the last one in the series, there are some tie ups to story lines from previous books. Another great read!!

Snow Blind – Julie Collins Book 4
With the most important mystery of Julie’s life behind her, one would hope she could settle into a more mundane existence. But Julie wouldn’t be Julie if that happened!
Julie’s business partner Kevin takes on a case that has Julie skeptical from the start. Dysfunctional families are again the heart of these mysteries and Julie and Kevin work to uncover wrongdoings at a retirement facility.
As Julie learns of another family’s inhumanity, she sees her own fractured f

Book 4 made me sad knowing it was the last book in the series. I want to read more about Tony and Julie and hope this isn't the end for them. This book has lots of twist and turns keeps you in suspense until the end. Julie gets pulled in all different directions while still maintaining her sassy attitude. Her relationship with her father will never be how she wants it to be and she comes to terms with that. This book will want you to keep turning pages so make time to read because you won't want ...more

I'm so in love with Julie and Martinez! What a perfect match they have grown to be. She just can't help but find trouble around every corner and Martinez is there at every turn. Also totally in love with all of the West River South Dakota scenery and landmarks in all of these books. It takes me back to my youth and growing up there.

Julie Collins is one tough woman. She has had a heck of a time with dead bodys. She deals with it and keeps on going. While her and Tony have some hot chemistry I was hoping for her and Kevin to get together. But still loved this story to no ends. Will definitely be reading more of Lori Armstrong books in the future. I would definitely recommend this book to all my friends.
I received an ARC of this book and it has no way influenced by opinion of the book.

This is the 4th book in the Julie Collins. in Snow Blond we get closure to many questions in Julie's life. For me these hit a personal connection that made me only love the series more. I love when stories feel like they really happened and Lori Armstrong definitely gives that in her stories. I like how the book concluded the series but left enough of an opening so she can always continue the series. Personally, I hope she does.

Have you ever read a book/series that just sticks with you... Days/weeks after you've finished? Well, it's been over a week since I finished this, & just can't stop thinking about the series. To the point I had a dream about them last night. I'm going to re-read all 4 books again, asap. I think Lori did an amazing job wrapping up this series, although, I'm really hoping there will be more to come!!

Snow Blind is another great book about our favorite Private Investigator, Julie Collins. Julie just can’t seem to cut a break in her life with all of the extra crap . . . except with her boyfriend, Tony Martinez. Julie and Kevin get themselves into a case that is about a granddaughter of an older gentleman that has the beginning stages of dementia, she’s saying that her the nursing home that he lives at is taking all of his money.

Set a few months after Shallow Grave, Julie and Kevin take on a new case investigating an Elder Care facility in Rapid City. The case gets complicated when Julie finds out Kevin is sleeping with their client and that the client has not been completely honest about her intentions. Add in threats to both Martinez and Julie’s lives along with a blizzard and a dead body found on her father’s ranch and Snow Blind doesn’t ...more

Julie Collins once again, finds herself in some interesting situations. In this episode (I feel like I should be using a Guiding Light voice), we find Julie investigating an assisted living facility in the dead of winter. She gets drawn back to her father's ranch by her step-mother, and ends up getting snowed in with him for 2 days. Talk about a difficult situation. Once she is able to leave the ranch, she does - as fast as she possibly can after a blizzard. Trouble is also brewing between her a ...more
