I kept seeing the cover everywhere. On Facebook, Instagram, on Facebook again. The cover grabbed me. The obvious suspense/thriller feel got me, too. However, I missed one obvious thing until I was chatting with Tracie Peterson one day--it was written by Kimberley Woodhouse.

*insert scratched record here*

Call me brain frozen, but I didn't know she wrote suspense!  But she did--she started off in suspense, and I like to say she's returned to her roots with her latest release, 26 Below. Listen in to see how this happened!

What Makes Me Think a Cyber Attack Sounds Like a Good Read?

Let's start with Alaska. Land of ice, snow, and not temperatures in the teens--the HUNDRED and teens, that is. Then add in the ticking weather bomb of dropping temperatures and it sounds even better. Right? Finally, stir in a quirky native woman who keeps foretelling doom and gloom, and what doesn't sound good???

And if that all didn't cut it, there's that little thing called faith.

Kimberley Woodhouse talked about the faith she wove into her story, and I don't know about you, but those are my favorite sorts of books. So there's that.

We also chatted about her backlist (hard to get those original suspense novels, but they might be on eBay or and about her upcoming publishing schedule. Two suspense and three historicals a year for the next few years. YAY!!!  *does happy dance*

Like me, Kimberley Woodhouse doesn't just have a to-be-read pile. She has a whole heaping gob of shelves stuffed with them. I love when I'm not alone. I feel her pain. Feel it. We'll never read all the books we want to--never write them all, either. But we'll have rich lives filled with story while we're here on earth, and that's beautiful. God is good.

26 Below by Kimberley Woodhouse

"A thrill ride. . . as current as today's front-page news!"
--Colleen Coble, 
USA Today best-selling author

In her new role as Emergency Operations Center director for Fairbanks, Alaska, Darcie Phillips prevents disasters. But none of her training can prepare her for the terror that's coming.

As a cybersecurity specialist, Jason Myers is determined to ferret out any threats to the town he now calls home--and that includes his reckless brother and his ecoterrorist friends.

When an old woman's wild prediction--widespread destruction as soon as the Fairbanks temperature falls to 26 below--hits national headlines, neither Darcie nor Jason sees a real risk to anything but tourism.

Then the bodies start dropping.

Darcie is relying on her experience and intelligence to stop a killer; Jason is relying on God to guide the way. They'll have to work together to find the truth and prevent their Alaskan town from becoming a city of nightmares. The first in a thrilling new suspense series from best-selling author Kimberley Woodhouse, 26 Below will delight fans of Lynnette Eason, Irene Hannon, and Lynn Blackburn.
