The more I think about it, the more I wonder, because it sounds like Jim is still standing and now has to try and save both or make a choice, which for him in that moment might not be hard, but I would not want to be the man that had to tell Kate I left Mutt behind....
I have a bad habit of reading the ending of books before I read the books and unfortunately, I did that with Bad Blood. I still remember how sad I was when Jack died; I will need to wait a couple of days before I will be able to start reading the book. Silly, I know, but it's me. I always love your books, but times in them like Jack's death, Eemm's dying. But good stories and I will survive, but I have got to break that habit. I will have faith that Kate, Mutt will be okay and the next adventure will arrive soon so my heart can quit thumping. Ginger
I have ordered some of the short story collections from Amazon, so will keep looking. Had to have Nooses Give after reading Bad Blood. Have to tell you, I was really upset all weekend until I read your comments regarding love and loss. I'm hopeful now and can't wait for the next book. I hope Mutt's OK- I have four dogs! :)
The good news, Becky, is that we're publishing all the Kate Shugak short stories a little later this year. The bad news is we're only doing it in e. I'm sorry, but no print publisher has expressed an interest in publishing them in hard copy.
CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHICH BOOK IN THE KATE SHUGAK SERIES IS THE ONE IN WHICH BILLY MIKE HAS A MASSIVE (FATAL) CORONARY, KATE, JOHNNY & MUTT ARE ALMOST KILLED BY HOWIE KATELNIKOF, AND JIM AND KATE BEGIN COHABITATING? I MUST BE MISSING ONE. THANKS.
As someone who travels extensively on long business trips, your books have help me pass many a mile, and kept me awake and between the lines many a night. I do wish that audible.com would get the rest of the Kate series, though. I keep checking for them every week. Thank you for letting us know that there will be more Kate. I am at how upset I was at listening to the ending of Bad Blood. But your books are ones that I listen to over & over. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making your stories come alive. I am looking forward to more.
I am glad to know Kate will return. But more importantly, will Mutt. Please do not kill her, it was devastating when Jack was killed. Please don't kill off Mutt!
Thank you for bringing Alaska and its people to life for your readers.
