Phoenix (The Phoenix Series Book 1) by Kimberly Packard 5 Stars I don't even know where to start with this review...This book grabbed me in the first chapter and did not let go...I was reading along and it was interesting following Amanda along in what seemed like the perfect life (in her eyes anyway) and then all of a sudden everything took a turn that started a whole different story then that which I thought it was going to be...Holy Mackerel I was at that time hooked and unable to put the book down. This story took me on such a journey and I experienced so many different emotions while reading this. This had not just one mystery going on but 2, and they both kind of revolved all around Amanda. There are too many parts of this story to try to go into any detail without giving something away...Just know that you are reading along and think you might have some of it all worked out then it takes a turn and your like, whoa wait a minute what just happened, then as you get comfortable with that whole idea Bang, it goes and throws you for a loop all over again and your right back where you started…. I think part of the story and the questions you have while reading got answered, but the other story, the main one that starts way back in the first chapter is still wide open and leaves you saying WHAT!? Then on the outside of these main stories there's this sweet little romance brewing that feels very real, not all fake and love at first sight sort of romance, which I really wouldn't even call a romance but I loved it anyway LOL This story is told in 2 different POV’s and I'm not going to say anymore about that because in my opinion it would take away someone else experiencing it all just like I have. I'm gonna stop there because I really just don't know what to say except...READ THIS BOOK, and my advice..Have book 2 ready to roll as soon as your done because you are gonna need it. I loved loved loved this story, I loved the way the author turned all these words into such an amazing journey and I love that I have Book 2 sitting here waiting on me so I don't lose my mind totally :)

Phoenix (The Phoenix Series Book 1) by Kimberly Packard is the first book in her The Phoenix series. This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed her writing style as well as her creativeness for characters. This thriller-suspense story will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. Here characters are both connectable and true to life. They took me on a roller coaster ride of various emotions. This story pulled me right from the start and it didn't take long for it to get into the thriller parts. This is a story about three people and two crimes. They are connected even though the crimes are years and miles apart from each other. Amanda is a woman who never thought she would be running from a gunman who blew up her office. She is now in search of the man who put in this position and seek revenge. Now that she has returned to a small town called Phoenix, she takes on a new identity to find her old self again. She just intends this to be a temporary stay as she moves on to find the man who pulled her into his security scam. What will happen when she finds a new romance but her determination for redemption is strong? Will she drive a wedge in her new relationship? She puts herself into the line of fire between these two cases, will they be solved before it is too late? I enjoyed Amanda's character. She in some way insecure but in other ways she is strong and determined. She did let revenge kind of rule her world. I enjoyed seeing her trying to start a new relationship and finding herself, trying to make sense of her life. The other secondary characters in this story are supportive but also made me feel compassion for them. They made the story easy flowing and help made the story into the thriller that it is. I highly recommend this book. Find out what happens between these two cases and what their link is. You don't want to miss the twists in this story.

 Kimberly Packard has written an unusual mystery with a major suspect as the protagonist in her book, Phoenix.   Amanda Martin’s boss and boyfriend, Josh, set her up as an unwitting accomplice while he and his partner embezzled funds from their company.  By the time she discovers what they did; the men had fled and the police were after her.  A tragic event gives her an opportunity to hop a bus and go after Josh.   Join her on her journey and try to outguess her.   “ “Good looking girls don’t get on buses like this unless they are running from something. So, what’s the story?  You catch your man cheating?”   This bus jockey Casanova had no clue how right he was.  Yes, Amanda caught her man cheating, but not in the arms of another woman, although it wouldn’t surprise her if infidelity was part of his crimes.” She ends up in the small, sleepy town of Phoenix, Texas.  At least she thinks it is a sleepy, little town.  Mandy, as she is called in Phoenix, gets a job as a reporter and general office worker at the local newspaper. She discovers an old mystery and decides to try to find out ‘who dun it’.    As she settles into the town, she puts her “other life” on hold.  Is she going to go back to her search for her old boyfriend to clear her name or is she just going to sit back and enjoy her new life?  This is a book that you definitely cannot leave on the bookshelf at the store.    Kimberly Packard received a degree in journalism from the University of North Texas and worked in public relations and communications for nearly 15 years.  She is Vice president of her writers group, Greater Fort Worth Writers.  She is an avid rollerblader, a devotee of yoga and a voracious reader.  She lives in North Texas with her husband Colby, Jerome the cat and a 56 pound lapdog named Charlie.

This fast-paced book grabs your attention during the first chapter and it's difficult to put it down. It's a great read and I'm looking forward to the next book!

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.
