Another blinder

Welcome back fellow readers and the next in the instalment of our favourite heroine Kat Carter.

I am loving the diversity this series is bringing me, each case is always that little bit different, the cast of characters is always fresh and interesting and even the staple people in the stories you know and love have yet another angle to learn about.

This tale leaves you shivering and I had no idea an avalanche could be the prime suspect in a murder, except it’s not that would be silly but the shadowy people involved very much are in the frame.

Having been to Vancouver a couple of times I like hearing of places I’ve visited or not places I want to go.

once again the minor roles in this story play as big a part of this story as the main ones do and achieve the aim of fleshing out a snowy wilderness.

Just when I think the series has reached an end, Colleen pulls another blinder out the bag of tricks .

Once again we welcome back our resident and brilliant narrator Petrea Burchard, who does an excellent job of weaving this chilly thriller.

This has been book three in the increasingly popular series but as I’ve found each can work well as a stand alone with only maybe minor throwbacks to the other books in the series.

I can’t recommend this series enough, I have enjoyed each one as much as the last.

A brilliant Katerina Carter story

Greenwash was my introduction into the world of the Katerina Carter thrillers. I really liked it and now want to go back and listen to the whole series from the beginning! It also works perfectly as a standalone.
A weekend leisure trip to the Rocky Mountains quickly turns into a life and death investigative adventure for Kat. She stumbles upon a successful cover-up of a previous natural disaster and immediately tries to figure out who is set to gain from it and what exactly the endgame is. She has her work cut out for her: it’s a time sensitive task and her life depends on it!
This is a fast-paced story narrated brilliantly by Petrea Burchard. I’m looking forward to listening to other books by Colleen Cross as well.

Brilliant book and well narrated

This series of books keeps getting better and better.

This one follows Kat and her partner as they travel to the Alps where her partner is s supposed to be writing an autobiography on an environmentalist.

Whilst they are there two protesters die, almost killing Kat at the same time, so she goes off to investigate it.

The book is really engaging, helped by the beautiful narration and kept me intrigued all the way through

Wow! I Loved It.

This was yet another great adventure written by the talented Colleen Cross featuring Kat and Jace. Kat seems to be able to find a mystery whatever she's doing and this time it's whilst she and Jace are in the mountains to enjoy a weekend getaway.

Jace had planned to do some work on a biography of a billionaire but then he's told that he will only be a ghostwriter, not the author. When he first heard this he wanted to call the whole thing off but Kat talked him into staying for the weekend because she wants to explore the area. While they are on their way there they came across some protesters who are protesting about a local mine, which had caused the contamination of the local drinking water. They want the source of the contamination to be cleaned up, somehow Kat becomes involved. Whilst exploring in an area she had been told to stay away from she meets two local protesters and finds herself staring down the barrel of a gun. She does, however, get them to lower their gun and begins to ask questions...

Shortly after that conversation, there is an avalanche which kills the two protesters and almost kills Kat too. Kat begins to investigate, was the avalanche really an accident or was it more sinister?

I don't want to say anymore because it would spoil a really good story but what I will say is the story flows well and is narrated really well by Petrea Burchard.

I was given a copy of this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Another action packed outing for Kat

This is the fourth book in the series, and this time Kat and her annoying boyfriend, Jase, go for a weekend break in the mountains. But things never go as planned and once again Kat is thrown into a murder mystery and uncovers another fraud. The book is action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I did miss Uncle Harry though, and hope he will be back in the next book.

Petrea Burchard does her usual fantastic job narrating the book

More intrigue and mayhem

Another great chapter in Katrina and Jade’s world of financial fraud and journalism. This time Katrina is taking some time off as they visit an environmentalist but in typical Katharine style there is soon a story to be found. I love these books and was not disappointed although I missed Kats uncle in this one.

Excellent

Goodness me poor Kat she only wants a weekend break and what does she get! Mayhem.
A good audiobook that keeps the listener hooked.
What’s going to happen next between strange visitors & then there’s the protestors. Never mind the break in a remote mountain lodge.
The narrator as always on these audiobooks did a great job & keeps the already alive tale going along at a good pace.
Great all round addition to the other Kat books to read or listen too

Another hit

Oops she did it again! Ms Cross has presented us with another Kat Carter thriller. Thanks to Kat's naturally suspicious mind, she uncovered a massive fraud. I'd never have thought forensic accounting could be so fascinating, or so dangerous. The only downer for me is Jase. He always doubts Kat, questions her perceptions and is incredulous at the things she discovers. Has he not realised that she's always right and he's always wrong? About time Kat ditched Jase and found a partner who'd offer up their 100% support without hesitation. This was probably the most dangerous case Kat's been involved in, I hope she gets some down time after this. I did miss Uncle Harry! I love his character and Ms Burchard's voicing of him is absolutely spot on. I look forward to seeing him again in book 5, if there is a book 5, and I really, really hope there is, because this is a great series, which I recommend to all

Totally Engrossing!

Green Wash by Colleen Cross is my favorite book to date by the author. I loved the wicked twists this book had. Accident or Murder by avalanche was one such twist. The details were so realistic from everything I've learned about them it was spooky. The deceptions the author incorporates in this story were so well done too. I could envision so many details with this book. The characters of Katerina Carter, her boyfriend Jace, and Uncle Harry are all so endearing. Green Wash is supposed to be a vacation for Katerina and an incredible work opportunity for Jace. Little do they realize how different things will be. I absolutely loved the twist at the end of this book. I never saw it coming, yet it was perfect. Sorry for not giving away spoilers.
Petrea Burchard was fantastic bringing the characters to life in this book. She has distinguishable voices for the numerous characters, and its easy to hear who is speaking. I cannot recommend this book enough. I really loved it!

Great as a stand alone and series

Katerina and Jace are off of a well deserved (working) vacation. Of course fans of the series know there is no such thing when Katerina is around. She has a nose for trouble. This well written adventure has enough twists and turns to keep you glued to the story and the series. This is one couple you will look forward to again and again. The narrator is easy to follow and lends a sense of familiarity to each character in the book. Over all the series is quite entertaining.

Green Wash

I love that Kat is supposed to be on a mini vacation in this book. Her job is to support Jace this time. But if you are a fan of this series like me, you know she looks for things to keep her busy and can get herself in to quite a bit of trouble. Kat is immediately suspicious of the man Jace is working for after he has some things added in to Jace's contract. Then Kat is almost killed on a morning hike and everyone is playing it down about the couple that did get killed in the same accident. Their is no way she's letting it go now. Another great story! And Petrea Burchard does a fantastic job bringing this book to life.

Murder, fraud, and more!

thriller, murder, suspense

Never trust a former green activist who did more than just make a profit. Self absorbed boyfriend contracts with said billionaire allegedly to write a book about him under the career journalist's name but finds out otherwise. Kat supposedly goes along for a vacation, but it turns deadly when a couple who are protesting shady business practices are killed in a supposedly spontaneous avalanche. And then things really get messy! Aside from wanting to toss the boyfriend under the bus, I was riveted by the story and the characters.
Petrea Burchard is the perfect voice actor for this book.
I won a free audio copy in a giveaway without expectations.

Another adventure for our intrepid accountant.....

Greenwash is the fourth book in this series featuring Katerina Carter, a forensic accountant whose investigations frequently result in plenty of action-packed adventure. Although I highly recommend listening to all of the books in the series, Greenwash can be enjoyed as a standalone. This book finds Katerina and her boyfriend Jace traveling to an extremely remote area of Northern Canada during the middle of winter, so Jace can begin writing a biography for a world famous environmentalist. While Jace is occupied with the enviromentalist, Kat explores the area surrounding his property in an effort to relax and entertain herself. This leads to a mystery involving local protesters, unexpected avalanches, water pollution and political machinations. Kat uses her forensic investigation skills and knowledge of financial matters to prove a surprising correlation between these seemingly separate issues and gets herself and eventually Jace into some harrowing situations along the way. The most action-packed story in the series thus far, Greenwash kept me glued to my iPhone for an entire afternoon, and the ending did not disappoint. Another winner from the very talented Colleen Cross.

Petrea Burchard does her usual amazing job with the narration. She narrates all the books in the series, and she is truly the voice of Kat. Burchard differentiates well between the characters, and her delivery is smooth and flawless. The combination of writing by Cross and narration by Burchard makes for a highly enjoyable listen.

fantastic book

Another great adventure with Kat and Jace. This book kept me on edge of my seat. It seems Kat finds a mystery even when she is not looking. This time she and Jace go to the mountains for a weekend getaway for Jace to do a biography on a Billionaire. Only he finds out that he wants it to be an autobiography and Jace would be a ghost writer. First he wants to leave but Kat talks him in to staying While he is busy with the writing Kat wants to explore the area. First while on there way there they run into some local protesters. There is also supposed to be some out of town protesters. They are protesting because a mine, which is closed down, had a breach and caused the local drinking water to be contaminated. All they want is for it to be cleaned up. Of course some how Kat seems to get involved with is issue. First she explores in area she was told to avoid and runs in to two local protesters. one pointing a gun at her. She finally gets them to lower their gun and she ask them questions about the protesting and they tell her some things that she begins to question such as why does not the billionaire try to get the water cleaned up. Just minutes after the couple leaves Kat, there is an avalanche that kills the couple and almost gets Kat. So Kat being Kat begins to investigate because she thinks the avalanche was man made and not an accident. and uncovers a great big scam. This story was even better than the last. Each book gets better and better. The author has created fantastic characters and story lines with this series. The narrator does a great job with bringing the characters to life. I love forward to the next adventure. I was gifted this book at my request in exchange for an honest review.
