8 Down JustRead Takeover + Review Blitz

Welcome to the Takeover + Review Blitz for 8 Down by Kimberley Woodhouse hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

About the Book

8 Down Title: 8 Down 
Series: Alaskan Cyber Hunters #2 
Author: Kimberley Woodhouse 
Publisher: Kregel Publications 
Release Date: February 20, 2024 
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

8 bodies down.

8 more lives at stake. 

Investigator Carrie Kintz is new blood with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in Anchorage. But with a serial killer on the loose, there's no easing into the job. It's sink or swim. The only clues to help law enforcement stop this madman are the taunts he drops into crossword puzzles across the country--always in the same 8 DOWN position.

Carrie is desperate to prove her worth to the force and the community by catching the killer. But when she discovers signs that these deaths are just the tip of the iceberg in a frighteningly elaborate cyberattack, it's time to admit she needs help.

Calling in security specialist Scott Patteson for his expertise seems like the right move--until Carrie realizes that he may be a dangerous distraction for her heart. With her faith fading in the face of horror and uncertainty and her career in danger of ending, this is no time for flirtation.

But with a killer who is determined to prove that he's smarter than everyone else, it may be impossible to fight both the madman and their feelings for each other...

Put on your parkas as we head into a cold world of cybercrime, and hang on for the ride! Kimberley Woodhouse once again takes us on a nail-biter of a ride, and you won't want to quit until you've read the last page!" --Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Lost Boys of Barlowe Theater

"An amazing, breath-stealing, knuckle-biting thrill of a ride!" --Lynette Eason, award-winning, best-selling suspense author

My thoughts: Wow! What a ride! I love how this book starts out by dropping the reader right in the middle of a high action story and doesn't let up until the discovery of who is behind the horrible deaths. This story did a wonderful job of making me feel like I was a member of the team, as Carrie and Scott learned to work together to track down the killer. I thought that the author did a wonderful job of writing a unique story that was hard to put down. I would recommend reading the first book in the series, to fully appreciate this one, though it can still be enjoyed as a stand alone. I can't wait for the next book!

I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
