Killerwatt | [Sharon Woods Hopkins]

Killerwatt

Banker Rhetta McCarter's ongoing battles usually involve mortgage loans, federal lending regulations, threats of bulges on her butt, and her closet-drinking husband. But after one of her mortgage clients dies in a mysterious car accident, she stumbles upon evidence of a terrorist plot to wipe out the entire Midwest power grid. No one believes her - not the FBI, local law enforcement, nor her husband. Rhetta convinces her assistant, and loan officer, Woody, a former Marine, to help her stop the attack.

What the Critics Say

"Oh, I love Rhetta McCarter! She's hilarious, smart, savvy, tenacious, loving-and just the teensiest bit stubborn. (Good thing, or her hometown would be in serious trouble.) Killerwatt is a high-voltage, high-speed adventure-with humor, heart, and a frighteningly realistic story!" (Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Macavity and Agatha-winning author)

"Feisty amateur sleuth Rhetta McCarter takes us along on a thrilling ride in her '79 Camaro as she tries to stop a terrorist plot that could mean lights out for the country...and for Rhetta! An exciting, fast-paced thriller from a promising debut author." (Sharon Potts, award-winning author of In Their Blood and Someone's Watching)

    "This book was not for me"

    This book was not for me. I didn't like the subject matter so I stopped reading early into the book. Maybe I will pick it up another day and enjoy it. That being said, I didn't want to give it a negative rating. I do think the a professional narration would make it better.

    "Perfect naration for a perfect book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killerwatt to be better than the print version?

    Sharon Woods Hopkins narrates the story as if she is telling it as herself. It's as if one is sitting across the table from her listening to her explain the adventures that occur in the book, Killerwatt.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Each twist in the plot from the tiniest detail to major moves are logically sequenced. Like swinging from vine to vine Sharon Woods Hopkins didn't let go of the current thought until it is complete and she didn't engage in the next step until I had a firm grip on where we were in the plot.


    Have you listened to any of Sharon Woods Hopkins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to no other performances by Sharon woods but I'm looking forward to another one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book gave me the most of what I want as I'm commuting back and forth to my daily labors, entertainment. Although it was hard to stop listening as I pulled into my parking space, it was vivid enough that I was able to pick things up immediately as I pulled out at the end of my work day.


    Any additional comments?

    Stories like "Killerwatt" and authors presenting like Sharon Hopkins are the top reasons audible books have become a part of my commuting life. Thank you, Sharon Woods Hopkins.
