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

A little disappointed in the ending.

I did enjoy the story, but these novellas are not satisfying. I did enjoy her characters as usual, but everything felt too condensed with a need to "tie it up with a shiny now."

Ok,

The narrator made all the women sound out of breath and anxious through the entire book.

I couldn't finish this.

If I heard Seth and Carly were working on the marriage one more time I would have started a drinking game. So many items were repeated about that and the mother in laws "feelings" it felt like there wasn't enough to write about. There's retelling then there is repetitive. I got it Seth and Carly needed balance of work and home life. What about the murdered girlfriend? She was mentioned a few times.

Not terrible but not great. A little cheesy but it occupied some time when I couldn’t find anything better to listen to.

A murder mystery around Christmas

This mystery was good listening. the family around the holidays is always a heart tug. It's a reminder that violence can happen anytime, regardless of what time of year or other upcoming events. It was also a reminder of how intertwined people can be and not even realize it until tragedy strikes

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!!!

Easy read with good plot. Would have liked a little longer book to start this series.

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
