The best way to describe the beginning of Phoenix is "whiplash." The story jumps from your average spoiled rich girl to action, defeat, and a twisting murder mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end! A stellar debut novel from a very promising author.
A cinematic thriller set in West Texas, full of lush details.
Amanda's journey continues in the exciting story of Pardon Falls. Packard tugs on the heart strings in this one. It's got all the feels, as well as a nice side of snark. Action and adventure, too, so this book is packed with everything you need for a good read! I loved every minute of it, especially the gasp-out-loud OMG moments!
Kimberly Packard is an award-winning author of edgy women’s fiction.
She began visiting her spot on the shelves at libraries and bookstores at a young age, gazing between the Os and the Qs.
Kimberly received a degree in journalism from the University of North Texas, and has worked in public relations and communications for nearly 20 years.
When she isn’t writing, she can be found running, planning her next trip, doing a poor imitation of yoga, asking her dog what’s in his mouth or curled up with a book. She resides in Texas with her husband Colby, a clever cat named Oliver and a precocious black lab puppy named Tully.
Her debut novel, Phoenix, was awarded as Best General Fiction of 2013 by the Texas Association of Authors. Other published works by Kimberly includes a Christmas novella, The Crazy Yates, and the sequels to Phoenix,
Pardon Falls and Prospera Pass, and her stand-alone title, Vortex.
