    1. The best way to describe the beginning of Phoenix is "whiplash." The story jumps from your average spoiled rich girl to action, defeat, and a twisting murder mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end! A stellar debut novel from a very promising author.


    2. This story couldn't have opened with a more exhilarating and heart thumping first chapter. The story lines of the various characters are so deep and how their lives intertwine keeps the reader glued to each page. Packard has delivered an incredible story of a search for redemption. The only negative thing about this story is I have to wait to read the next one and find out what happens!


    3. This book started off with a bang (literally) and never let up. A well-written, intriguing, suspenseful and captivating novel that sucks you in right from the start; intertwining two intense and gut-wrenching stories taking the reader on an emotional roller-coaster ride. To say that the characters are well-developed would be an understatment as they are each so complex and flawed, you can almost relate to them. Kudos to the author for a spectacular debut novel. I look forward anxiously to read t [...]


    4. Absolutely wonderful! I couldn't put it down! Phoenix grabbed me in the first chapter and continued to hold me with action and suspense throughout. Mandy is a wonderfully developed, full, interesting character, and she is surrounded by an amazing supporting cast. Each character has their own quirks and personalities making each one unforgettable. The ending is set up to be the beginning of another book, and I sincerely hope this happens. I can't wait to see what happens next with Mandy, Shiloh, [...]


    5. Engaging from the very first chapter! The book starts right from the very beginning with an office shooting. Amanda nearly escaping decides to run and ends up in the very small town of Phoenix. Starting up a new life, in a new town, with a new name, Amanda stumbles upon an unsolved murder that happened 10 years ago. She also meets David, who is a cop for the small town. The big question is can she figure out the cold case before the detective and reporter find her whereabouts?A great debut novel [...]


    6. Can't wait for the sequel!! She left us wanting more at the end of each chapter! Great job Kimberly and thanks again for coming to our book club!!


    7. Read more reviews like this at lovelybooksblog!I was drawn in by this novel from the first sentence and by the end of the first chapter I was completely captivated. Following three different characters; Amanda, as she struggled to reinvent her life; Shiloh, as she hid the secrets behind her best friend Katie’s murder; and Alex as he struggled to find Amanda and save his career. With a small town vibe, wonderfully crafted characters, plenty of intrigue, and a budding romance Phoenix was a fanta [...]


    8. Kimberly Packard has written an unusual mystery with a major suspect as the protagonist in her book, Phoenix. Amanda Martin’s boss and boyfriend, Josh, set her up as an unwitting accomplice while he and his partner embezzled funds from their company. By the time she discovers what they did; the men had fled and the police were after her. A tragic event gives her an opportunity to hop a bus and go after Josh. Join her on her journey and try to outguess her. “ “Good looking girls don’t [...]


    9. Amanda Martin is one of three indicted by the SEC in a financial fraud case. Though she is a minor player, she runs and ends up in Phoenix Texas as Mandy Jackson. Here she is stalked by a couple of extremely creepy men the kind that trap you and demand consensual sex --- certainly one of the top-ten creepy oxymorons of all time. She also investigates a 10-year-old murder that might have been committed by one of these creeps, or maybe someone else.Thus, Phoenix by Kimberly Packard starts slow (t [...]


    10. I won this book through First Reads. It was very interesting and kept me captivated :) One thing I did not like though but made sense later was Shiloh and Clint's relationship. I was under the impression Clint was the murderer so why would she even talk to him? But the story went on and went to show he had nothing to do with the murder.


    11. Kimberly manages to create a set of characters that stay with you long after you've finished the final page. Her visual descriptions put you right in the middle of the story. I'm very much looking forward to the sequel.


    12. We read this for our new book club! It was a great read & great discussion as the author, Kimberly came to our meeting last night. Here's a teaser - there is a sequel that hopefully be out by Christmas. We all are looking forward to reading it. Highly recommend this book & it's author!


    13. Wow! What a debut! I really enjoyed this book! Kimberly Packard has GORGEOUS imagery & a fast pace story that will keep u turning the page. This was a wonder read with unpredictable twists. There were awesome serious moments balanced with metaphors that made me giggle. I can't wait for book two!


    14. Phoenix is a highly entertaining novel with a fast-paced, page-turning momentum created by the actions of a smart yet imperfect heroine. I stayed up late to finish this pleasurable read. Sign me up for the sequel.


    15. I enjoyed this book--a good mystery--but did not like the ending. I felt as if it just stopped. Maybe the author is planning a sequel.



    16. A quick and satisfying read. This was a tale of greed, betrayal, murder AND love and redemption. A great whodunit featuring gripping storytelling. Perfect summer reading.



    17. I received a copy of Phoenix in exchange for an honest review. I loved the characters in this story. Amanda runs from home after being caught up in a scandal at her workplace. She ends up getting off the bus in a small town called Phoenix. Amanda goes by Mandy when she lives in Phoenix and tries to start a new life. There are so many twists and turns in this story, I couldn't put it down. My only complaint was the cliffhanger ending!


    18. If you want a book that holds your attention this is it.I was surprised that this book was so good.Kimberly did a great job keeping me interested and wanting to see what happens next.I am looking forward to reading the next one. Great book.


    19. I received Phoenix by Kimberly Packard as a First-reads giveaway winner. This book is about a woman, Amanda, whose life changes overnight when she's accused of a crime. Innocent people have died so she flees her life and tries to start over, at least temporarily, in a small town in Texas named Phoenix. She finds herself trying to solve a 10 year old murder of a teenage girl. Phoenix is a page-turner that held my interest throughout. I was slightly disappointed by the ending. It was anti-climati [...]


    20. As a GoodReads winner of this book I feel an obligation to write a review. Thank you Kimberly for the lovely card and personal autograph packaged with the book. What a nice surprise. I tried, I really did, I made it to page 152, about halfway through. Maybe it's just not my cup of tea. I had trouble figuring out what I was reading, a thriller? a romance? erotica? (sex on the bus?) That just seemed so unlike the character you were building. Keep writing and I'll try you're next book.


    21. Of the 4 romance novels I read for a competition, this one was the best. It was not very well written, however, and some of the events abruptly occurred and didn't make sense. I think the author had too many plot lines going to keep them all straight. I read it through. And then it ended with it all "hanging." Not my favorite at all.
