Publisher's Summary

Was the man she loved an enigmatic hitchhiker or a murderer?
To keep the bank from repossessing her eighteen-wheeler, Baby Blue, and putting her and her daughter, Tessa, on the street, Loretta Brennan takes a dangerous job driving it into Wyoming with a winter storm approaching. All alone she worries if she can make the deadline and navigate the roads since her driving partner husband died the year before in an accident.
On her way, she feels sorry for and picks up a hitchhiker. Sam Emerson. Charismatically handsome, his moodiness hides a dark past that includes a dead girlfriend and a murder charge.
Snow, a series of trucker murders and a sinister truck begin to haunt them on their route.
She suspects Sam’s aligned with the killer even as she experiences feelings for him. Is Sam a good man down on his luck or is she falling in love with a murderer?
In the end it’ll take a heroic show of love to prove to her that he is who he claims to be.

Nail-biting thriller!

Would you listen to Winter's Journey again? Why?

Yes! It was very enjoyable and in parts very frightening! It starts out with a simple situation, then it turns into a mystery, then builds into this terrifying thriller!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Main character, the woman driver. I guess I could relate to her because she was a woman and a normal person.

What does Kimberly Henrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She had a comfortable voice, if that makes sense.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! It had an addictive quality to it.

Any additional comments?

I like that it starts fairly quiet, then builds. I think some people like thrillers to hit like a freight train from page one, and sometimes I do too, but I like the flow of this one. And the quiet moments are comfortable and enjoyable. I thought it was a great read. One of my favorites now.

Life on the road can be deadly

Would you listen to Winter's Journey again? Why?

I would listen again.
I enjoyed the narration. The story was very interesting.
I would like to listen a second time to see if I pick up clues I may have missed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It is a toss up between Loretta and Sam.
They both have qualities that make them stand out.
Sam is a puzzle to be solved.
Loretta is a determined woman trying to provide for her family.
Each has history to overcome.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes and circumstances were well written. I could easily picture them.
The truck stops and diners, the deserted roads and falling snow.
The knife fight scene was one where I would not put the book down until I knew how it would end.

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

Being a longer book, I was unhappy when I had to set it aside and go back to real life.
I always wanted to know what was going to happen next.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this to both genders and ages from high school up.
To those who like crime and mystery, and even though there is romance, it is not overpowering.
