Kimberly is the author of the award-winning novel, Phoenix, its sequel Pardon Falls, and the Christmas novella, The Crazy Yates.
Phoenix Book 1
Amanda Martin boards a bus in the middle of a cold Chicago night with no luggage and only two thoughts: get the hell away from the crazed gunman who obliterated her office and locate the man responsible for her indictment – and make him pay.
A small Texas town of Phoenix becomes her refuge as she assumes a new identity to rediscover who she was before all the power and money changed her. She intends it to be a temporary stop before searching for her ex-boyfriend who ensnared her in his securities fraud scandal, but the flirtatious advances of a handsome cop fuels her struggles between building a life there with him and her desire for vengeance. Uncovering a forgotten murder ignites Amanda’s need for redemption, but also drives a wedge in her new relationship, and puts her in the line of fire of two people who will stop at nothing to keep the case cold.
Pardon Falls | Phoenix Book 2
Some journeys are meant to be taken alone.
A year after hiding in the small Texas town of Phoenix, she continues to the border to find Josh Williams, to bring him to justice. Mistakes from her sojourn in Phoenix, including accusing a woman of murder and breaking David’s heart, derail her vengeful plans. But she’s getting close. Too close…
Josh should’ve stayed in Chicago to face his punishment rather than hiding out with his sinister client. A year in northern Mexico working for Rafael Vargas might as well be life in prison without parole, including the constant threat of death.
Drinking was the only way David Stephens could both forget and remember Mandy. She’d destroyed his life, forcing him to jumpstart a new career with the Border Patrol.
When she reappears in his life, he shoves both anger and love aside to endure the Mexican desert.
Amanda is forced to trust a man who betrayed her, and one who refuses to forgive her. Can Amanda, Josh and David bury their motives and grudges to survive?
Prospera Pass | The Phoenix Finale (coming mid-2018)
For the past eighteen months, Amanda Martin devoted her sole focus to bringing her ex, Josh Williams, to justice. With him vanished and David presumed dead, she desperately wants to forget everything. Until a mysterious priest arrives…
Hope is a son of a bitch. It wouldn’t let David Stephens move on and accept Mandy’s death. Then a descending assassin gives him an unlikely gift – a glimmer of faith that Mandy is still alive.
The law isn’t just in Fallon Weatherby’s blood; it’s part of her genetic makeup. Following rules makes life less messy. But when an old friend asks her to step outside the boundaries, can she push aside her feelings when she is asked to break the law?
The conclusion of the Phoenix Trilogy, Prospera Pass brings together new allies, old enemies and the acceptance that the journey you set out for might not be where you belong.
