      This was such a wonderful book to read as I really enjoy reading novels about police crime and what not Though I really wish it had been a lot longer as it ended WAY to fast which was a huge bummer I would recommend this to others as well especially if you are into police type stories as well Very well written and extremely fun to read.

      The terse, clipped fragments and sentences made this a little hard for me to get into at first, but once started, it zipped along nicely.

      I finished reading A Winter Kill by Vicki Delany, and I was very impressed about the story line The setting was located in a small town just on the bottom corner of Ontario, Canada A small town girl named Nicole was a patrol officer that was patrolling the night of the murder Nicole had only been six months as a police officer has been investigating for the murder of this poor girl She was bending over backwards finding the murderer in her spare time The head investigator was very impressed with [...]

      Pretty Good Read I ve read all of Vicki Delany s Klondike series and I ll highly recommend it to everyone But read them in order It s almost a must with this series and I ve read quite a few other Rapid Reads by authors like Barbara Fradkin and Rick Blechta and, in most cases, I ve found them to be satisfactory reads This novella is no exception to that I haven t started the Molly Smith series yet cause I have 1 on order and I haven t read any of Vicki s standalones so I thought this would be a [...]

      A Winter Kill by Vicki DelanyVicki Delany has delivered a murder mystery in Rapid Read format that gives the reader a view of life they will find familiar A young girl from the wrong side of the tracks so to speak, is found dead and no one seems to care very much A glimpse of our perceptions, often wrong, of people we don t really know who don t fit in or are considered beneath us In this case, a popular young boy, destined for a football scholarship, has taken the time to know her and is devast [...]

      Rookie Police Constable Nicole Patterson notices a dead body on the side of the road while on patrol in the middle of a snowy winter The body ends up being Maureen Grey, a local teen from Prince Edward District High School who was viewed as the bottom rung on the social ladder, mainly due to rumors she would sleep with anyone Maureen had left home several weeks ago as she was tired of living with her passive mother and abusive father Everyone in this remote, rural area believes Maureen was kille [...]

      In a Winter Kill, Vicky Delany tells the story of rookie constable Nicole Patterson, back in her natal county, and her investigation in the murder of a young high school student The victim being born on the wrong of the track and having a reputation for sleeping around, the fingers immediately point to the father as the killer Even though she is not part of the investigation team, Nicole soon asks questions to students and others who knew the victim.I read the book in one seating it was a fast a [...]

      I m a bit torn about this book I thought it was a pretty good story as far as mysteries go It had a surprise if abrupt ending and I enjoyed that However the writing style was for a young person and although there s nothing wrong with that, I found the theme to be a bit mature for the book to be considered YA Perhaps the writing style is what fits with a rapid reads book, ergo the short, clipped and very simple sentences True to its promise of being a quick read, I zipped through it in just over [...]

      Nicole is a probationary police officer for a small town She finds the dead body of a high school girl on a bitterly cold winter night Even though she is not a detective, she is drawn to the case The girls father was an abusive drunk, she had a reputation for sleeping around, but none of the easy answers seem like the right ones to Nicole.Rapid Reads is a hi lo book designed for adults who need to complete their GED I have found that many of the books in this series have themes that are inapprop [...]

      This is a great quick read which I would have loved to have been a longer book because it was so intriguing and ended too soon for me.There s a new rookie in the town of Picton, Ontario by the name of Nicole Patterson who has discovered the dead body of a girl in her teens who appears to have been strangled by her own scarf and calls it in, it s not her case since the victim was murdered but she just can t let it go and does her own investigation with some help from her mom who works at a youth [...]

      A simple, fast paced, easy read Books in this series are intended for a diverse audience, including ESL students, reluctant readers, adults who struggle with literacy and anyone who wants a high interest quick read orcabook rapid reads aboutml Since the mystery genre is a favorite of mine, I thought that this book would not disappoint I m glad to say I was correct.

      An exciting murder mystery A rookie constable, while on duty is the first to find the murder of a teenage high school student The investigation begins This is the rookie s hometown and she knows a lot of the people so she starts asking questions and becomes involved in this case even though she isn t a detective The victim reminds her of a friend in her teenage past that she befriended and she needs to help find her killer, regardless I recommend it

    14. Laura on said:

      Canadian newly minted police officer sticks her nose into a murder investigation because she found the body This was poorly written as if it was a high school writing project No character development at all Predictable Just because it is a short novella doesn t mean it should read as if written by a 10th grader.

    15. Judy Sheluk on said:

      I ve been reading these Rapid Reads recently as a means of getting familiar with the novella Once again, I really enjoyed the story and Vicki Delany has done a good job of building a likeable character which is sure to become yet another series If you re looking for a meaty read, Rapid Reads aren t for you But if you want something quick and light, these make a very satisfying snack.

    16. Deanna on said:

      A lot happened in only a few pages Read in about an hour Decent for a quick read Love murder mysteries as a rule and this one didn t disappoint If you re looking for a quick read and enjoy murder mystery, read this one

    17. Shelly O'Foran on said:

      I really did not like this book It is the story of a young police officer investigating the murder of a high school student But the author treats high school students as generally mean and obnoxious, portraying but not challenging every bad stereotype of teenage culture.

    18. Jocelyn on said:

      Wow, short Took longer to download the epub from the library than to read next time I will be observant lol Was excellent none the less and it is always cool reading books that describe places I know well Very well written, loved it.

    19. Shakina Fleurmond on said:

      This book is really exciting I just love all the murder mysteries that happen It seems that Constable Nicole and sergeant Malan get along very well Altitude too well I hope that a romance starts between them this book is becoming really good.

    20. Debra on said:

      More of a novella than than a short story, this short book is designed for everyone from ESL students to those who want a quick, enjoyable read Vicki Delany still manages to bring her story telling ability to the format Predictable, but nicely developed A great choice for commute reading.

    21. Kyla Squires on said:

      Didn t realize this was a short story when I picked it up At first I thought her characters were too akin to her Molly Smith books, but since this seems to have been written for the Rapid Reads series that can be forgiven.

    22. Brian Williams on said:

      A good short story a police procedural featuring a young rookie police constable who takes the initiative to informally investigate a murder she found the body when she thinks her superiors have tagged the wrong man as the murderer.

      Another Rapid Read, this time about a rookie cop It s set in Prince Edward County

    24. Brenda Kahn on said:

      A quick, plot driven read, short on character development and with an ending one can see a mile away.
