Kate Watterson grew up on a steady diet of mystery/suspense novels. If it involves murder and intrigue, she is bound to be hooked. Watterson also writes award-winning historical novels as Emma Wildes.

She applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, Frozen, and reported the following:
On page 69…what a great pick for Frozen! Lucky, I guess. Yes, I think it is representative of the book as Ellie is discussing with the county deputy working with her investigating this series of serial murders. That page gives insight into their personal lives as they work the case of the latest missing young woman. Rick Jones mentions that he’d married young when he found out his girlfriend was pregnant in high school, because it felt like it was the right thing to do.

She responds:
“If you’re a nice guy.” Ellie thought about that discarded shoe, brilliant leaves sifting over the ground next to it, and the congealing pool of blood. She added with somber conviction, “I’m afraid there are some out there who aren’t nice at all.”
Uhm, yes, by the way, she’s right. The person they are hunting is definitely not playing nice.
