There's a body in your alley...
Arianna Jackson—AJ to her friends—and her occasionally well-behaved Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, live a normal, uneventful, admittedly mundane existence, where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens.
Until it does.
Early one morning, AJ stumbles upon a horrifying scene—a girl's body lies broken in the dumpster behind her home, her face beaten and mutilated.
A secret reveals you're living a lie...
As if that weren't enough to upset the balance of normal, things go from bad to worse when she learns of her connection to the murdered girl. Suddenly, AJ realizes her entire life has been filled with secrets and lies.
A killer hunts for you...
Together with her trusty sidekick, Nicoh, and BFF, Leah, AJ must search for answers. But can she, when finding the truth proves to be more deadly than living the lie?
Would you search for the truth if you knew it could kill you?
Join AJ and her pals as they race to unravel the mystery of her past, where the pieces of the puzzle bring more questions than answers and the only certainty is the killer's end game—AJ's life.
Find your truth...

Some friendships can be murder...

Arianna Jackson—AJ to her friends—has experienced enough drama in the past six months to last her a lifetime. Finding out she’s adopted and a twin to the girl she found brutally murdered and dumped in her alley being among the headliners. And, of course, there’s her sister’s killer, still pursuing her and the secret she holds, despite assurances he’s currently locked away in a secure government facility.

Unfortunately, even the best of intentions prevent her from living a drama-free existence when Charlie Wilson, a frequent client of her Mischievous Malamute photography business and an old high school friend, asks her for help after being arrested for a heinous crime he insists he didn’t commit. Sure, Charlie may be arrogant and self-centered, but in AJ’s book, being a jerk doesn’t necessarily mean he’s guilty—not of this crime, anyway.

AJ quickly realizes her old pal may not be as innocent as she’d originally been led to believe when he produces a sketchy alibi and is less than forthcoming about a series of missing hours the day of the crime. Still, with or without Charlie’s assistance, she’s determined to find the truth, wherever it leads.

Armed with her Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, and best friend, Leah Campbell, AJ searches for shreds of evidence to prove Charlie’s innocence. But the harder they look, the greater the roadblocks they encounter as it becomes apparent Charlie isn’t the only one with secrets to hide and demons to bury. In fact, much more may be at stake, including the bonds of friendship.

In a world that walks the tightrope of good versus evil while nudging the boundaries of black versus white, there are always shades of grey—where the truth you seek isn’t always the one you find. Sometimes the demons that haunt us are resurrected for something greater than revealing the truth. Sometimes the reasons go beyond vengeance…beyond retribution…beyond revenge.

One season down. Five to go. Only a matter of Time before Death comes knockin’ at your door. 

Fall shifts into winter and Harper Storm is nowhere closer to seeking out the mysterious girl who predicted her death, which—according to the messenger’s timeline—is just five short seasons away. Harper’s attention is diverted from her impending demise when she uncovers a thumb drive buried inside the sofa she’s begrudgingly taken possession of and moved into her studio apartment.

With the help of new computer genius friend, Phil Collins, Harper delves into the contents of the drive, curious what would provoke someone to go to such extremes. 

Soon, they realize the couch’s former owner—the ex-wife of the man so eager to dispose of it—has tapped into something more sinister at the woman’s interior furnishings firm than a showroom filled with last season’s rejects. It’s a trail of breadcrumbs, one that leads her company right into the underbelly of a world that preys on innocence and rips at the soul of humanity.

Harper and Phil hit a dead-end in their search for answers when they learn the woman's not only vacated the country—she’s allegedly done so with her business partner on her arm and a sizable amount of the company’s money in her pocket—leaving them to wonder: did she hide the information in her attempt to uncover the truth? Or to conceal her own crimes—ones that could be worth killing for?

Once again, Harper places herself in the heart of danger—but will the price be worth the sacrifice this time around as she dangles her life and the lives of her friends in the crosshairs of a ruthless adversary with ties to an underworld that affords no mercy?

Winter Storm is the second installment in the nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat Six Seasons series by Harley Christensen, author of the Mischievous Malamute Mysteries.
