Great story about a widow and single mom, Loretta, and a handsome stranger (Sam) as they try to outsmart a serial killer! It still baffles me that she’d pick up a hitchhiker, but, hey – it’s fiction.

Despite that, this was a nail biting, chilling listen. Loretta was a rounded, well-developed character who was a trucker – very different, indeed! The attraction between the H and h was almost immediate and the tension there was palpable.

The suspense kept building as truck drivers were murdered alo

Blog Review For: GMTA
"Winter's Journey" by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was a very good thriller that will keep you turning the pages. After Loretta Brennan's husband (Jed)had died she desperate needed money for her last payment, the balloon payment that was due on her "Baby Blue" rig, her home and the well being of her daughter, Tessa.

This is a very interesting read, not at all what I expected. Loretta is a very strong woman, she is definitely a great character. I loved seeing her journey and her strength throughout the story.

Truthfully, she has several "too stupid to live" moments. It mystified me that at every opportunity to share information with the authorities she balked. If there is a series killer out there and suddenly something strange is happening at home, you better believe I would mention it to the cops. There is

Loretta is a trucker’s widow with a child to support and bills to pay. It is easy to emphazine with her. The accident that killed her husband was bizarre. While he changed a tire on his truck, someone ran over him. The driver and truck that caused the accident were never found.
When Loretta is offered a job, by a large company with an exceptional reputation, she is overjoyed .Than, she sees the problems. Two years ago her husband was killed on the same route, it’s winter, the deadline is almost

I listened to the audible version of this book.
I very much enjoyed the narrator's voice.

This is an interesting story about a woman who has to make a delivery over dangerous roads in terrible weather conditions to provide for her daughter and pay off her truck. Along the way she meets a stranger and takes him on as her driving partner, without knowing much about him. It is the only way to make her deadline.
It also seems that in places she stops along her route, truck drivers are being murdered.

I really enjoyed this book. One of the things that appealed to me about this book is that it is about a female truck driver. I know a female truck driver, and I have always been so captivated by the stories that she told of the times she was on the road. This book is neat because it allows an inside look at what truck drivers go through. Not only that, but this book is filled with suspense and mystery. It kept me on the edge of me seat. Along with suspense and mystery, there is an element of rom ...more

An interesting mix of truck driving lifestyle and a serial killer mystery. This book was so suspenseful and I loved it! The story hooked me right away and never let up. I really like when a book can keep you guessing the whole time. Loretta is a strong main character, and felt very real to me. I could easily see myself in her shoes throughout the story as she tries to decide whether to trust her heart or not. The narrator was perfect for this audiobook, and helped to bring the story to life. I e ...more

I really enjoyed the suspense in this story. I spent the whole time that I was listening guessing and wanting to know who is doing it and why. Strong characters. Great narration. Will be on the lookout for more books by Kathryn Meyer Griffith and the narrator Kimberly Henrie.
