Publisher's Summary

In the first thrilling Rogue Winter Novella, sleepy little Solitude, Oregon, wakes up to another deadly threat.

County investigator Seth Harding intends to spend the holidays with his newly reconciled family, but a few days before Christmas, a homicide thwarts his plan. Seth arrives at the scene and makes a painful discovery: the victim is his brother-in-law's girlfriend. Her apartment has been ransacked and her toddler left motherless. To make matters worse, Seth's brother-in-law, Bruce, is missing. With Solitude locked in a rare, deadly deep freeze and the temperature plummeting, the residents launch a desperate search.

Seth calls his wife, social worker Carly Taylor, to take the case so the little girl doesn't get lost in the foster care system. With the holidays near, Carly brings the child home with them to celebrate Christmas. But when the Taylor farm is also trashed, Seth and Carly must race against time - and against a paralyzing winter storm - to find Bruce and catch a killer in the first pulse-pounding sequel to the Rogue River Novellas.

Good cop novella

With Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot writing police thrillers set in sparsely populated southwest Oregon one gets the idea that the area must be the highest crime area in the nation including serial killers. This novella is not about serial killers, but there is a lot of crime including murder.

Melinda Leigh, like Kendra Elliot, is a superb writer and this book is a fine example of her work. Kate Rudd does a fine job of narration.

Recommended.

Not too believable

Would have liked this more if the reading were not so fast. Story could have been better developed

Good short story. Not much depth. Awesome voices.

Voices brought life to otherwise rushed characters. Could have been a better book if only the author had bothered writing a couple more hundred pages. I guess there was deadline. Dam that advance pay, and its consequences!!!

Not my cup of tea

Just couldn’t get past the narration. Marked it as read so I wouldn’t go back to it. In fact, passed on today’s Audible daily deal w/ same narrator. Not saying she’s bad - just not my cup of tea. Too slow, can’t distinguish convos among characters, but I will say she has a sweet and soft voice.

Great story and narration

I really enjoyed this novella. The story has great characters and suspense and I couldn't wait to get to "the next page." I love all the books with this family. The narration is very good.

I Enjoy This Series

The reader is a little stilted in her narrative. Where words should flow they are almost staccato. However, it is not distracting enough to make me stop listening. The story is very short, and I would prefer more, but still an enjoyable read.

A little corny

Story line was good but it was a little too corny would have been nice in a longer book to develop the characters

Not worth one star

give up at chapter 10.To much description on the sickly Waltons style family.Not enough on the actual story.The voice is awful makes you loose interest rapidly.

Dreadfull

This was absolutely pathetic a five year old could have written it.The character's were week, the storyline non existent, I feel as if I have wasted 3 hours 11 mins of my life
