26 BELOW by Kimberley Woodhouse, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #NewRelease

A crazy lady is sure there will be a disaster when temperatures hit 26 below zero in Fairbanks, Alaska. But nobody takes her seriously and she cannot be found for questioning.

Darcie Phillips has just assumed her job as director of the Emergency Operations center. The governor has given her leeway of a year to get fully operational. So much to coordinate! Her small team of cyber security specialists needs to head off the threat before winter blasts to 26 below!

Ms. Woodhouse has proven her versatility with this super suspenseful story that had me flipping pages quickly. The team is smart and capable and works well together. Jason is a wonderful hero. He is intelligent, caring and romantic. Several characters have a solid faith in God and Darcie struggles with her dormant spiritual condition. Although she is methodical and cool in the face of the threat, her past comes back to throw a monkey wrench in at the worst time. When the villains act, Darcie sees that “bad people still did bad things.” She is reminded that if God seems far away, God has not moved- she has.

A scary thought that the very security we take for granted could be compromised. Ms. Woodhouse has penned an up-to-the-minute fascinating scenario that has me wishing the next book was ready to read!

BackCover Blurb:
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.
