Book Description

March 2006
A Jenkins & Burns Mystery Elise Jenkins thinks she's stepped onto a little piece of heaven when she and Detective Mitch Burns arrive on a remote Michigan island for their long awaited winter getaway. The snow covered pathways and horse drawn sleigh rides are like something out of a fairy tale. But like all fairy tales, there's evil lurking just below the surface-haunting family secrets, a blizzard that cuts off communication to the outside world, and a killer who's circling. It could be the story of a lifetime for a news reporter like Elise. If she lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Mary Higgins Clark! Dec 21 2006
By Eleanor Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Move over Mary Higgins Clark, Laura Bradford is on the scene! In Forecast of Evil, she even tops her previous book, Jury of One, which was nominated for an Agatha best first novel. A tough heroine and her love interest match wits with a devious murderer while battling a blizzard and some demons from the past to succeed in the end. A story with turns and twists on every page. If you love Mary Higgins Clark, you'll doubly love Laura Bradford's fresh new series. And be sure to read Jury of One, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sequel to Jury of One May 23 2006
By Terri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was really looking forward to the sequel to "Jury of One." Laura Bradford brings the characters back to life, and they're as likeable and enjoyable as ever. The story has great twists and turns that come together in a surprise ending. I couldn't put it down until I knew who the killer was.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Down-to-Earth Mystery Oct. 21 2007
By B.E. Sanderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you're looking for a book to curl up with on a cold night, this Jenkins & Burns mystery is perfect. Ms. Bradford's descriptions of the scenery pull you into the swirling blizzard, and hold you as snowbound as her characters. Her ability to give you a window into her characters wraps you up in the story, until you're in so deep, you can't put the book down.

In this second Jenkins & Burns mystery, Laura Bradford revisits Elise Jenkins and her boyfriend, Mitch Burns as they take a much needed vacation on Mackinaw Island, Michigan. Unfortunately for them, their plans for relaxation disappear after a fellow vacationer's disappearance turns into murder. The culprit could be anyone--from the retired cop to the drifter kid to the town's `freaky hermit'--and Ms. Bradford works to keep her readers on their toes until the very end.

By weaving her story with everyday characters you can connect with and an intriguing plot you can lose yourself in, Ms. Bradford does an excellent job of entrancing her readers without muddying the waters with unnecessary elements. I won't spoil the plot for you here--what would be the fun in that?--but I will recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good down-to-earth mystery.
3.0 out of 5 stars A good story in a great setting Sept. 7 2007
By Denise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Reporter Elise Jenkins and police detective Mitch Burns continue to develop their relationship during a winter trip. The trip becomes more eventful than they planned as Mitch is pressed into service to solve a series of crimes during a huge snowstorm. There are a few too many coincidences for my taste, and sometimes I am not sure why Elise and Mitch trust the people they do, but it is still a good story with likeable characters.
5.0 out of 5 stars a serial killer in a winter wonderland turned nightmare July 28 2007
By D. Merrimon Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Laura Bradford's Forecast of Evil is a chilling fast-paced mystery filled with a serial killer, trapped guests, and past secrets waiting to be revealed. Lighter than the typical serial killer thriller, this mystery provides enough details and clues to keep readers on the edge but not too many to blunt the fun hunt for the perpetrator with too much gore and violence.

Pete Garner joined the men's outdoors group upon the advice of his doctor for his cardiac health. When he discovered the hobby of orienteering, however, his competitive nature took over. He had to win. Detective Mitch Burns and reporter Elise Jenkins have come to this winter wonderland hideaway to forget the past --- only the wonderland aspect is quickly becoming a nightmare when Pete's body is discovered. A blizzard is brewing on the remote Michigan island and suddenly a phone call --- a serial killer might be hiding on the island. All lines of communication and transportation are failing....somewhere among new and familiar faces, a psychopath is hiding and seeking out his prey.

Forecast of Evil had a few more thrills and a nice romance subplot than a typical mystery read. Readers will enjoy the information about orienteering, gaining a little knowledge of this hobby without resorting to a bulky dry book on the subject. The author gives a strong hint as to the identity of the perpetrator at one moment, on purpose I believe, because it actually heightened the thrills and the hunt --- even so, there were definitely some unexpected twists as well. Very nice!

One word of advice...this may not be the book to start in the wee hours of the night. Reading it with a book light increases the chilling effect for this reader. Of course, if you want to heighten the chilling effect of this book, read it with a book light or beside a fireplace in a darkened room.
