Winter Watch by Anita Klumpers

My Review:          

           This funny tale with unusual characters turns into an interesting thriller with the heroine, Claudia, careening down the mountain on a snowmobile then crashing in a Volvo only to be rescued by the local dogcatcher.
            Claudia who is trying to locate the rightful owner of an old watch finds herself in Wisconsin in a tiny snowed-in hamlet. She enjoys all the “locals” especially Ezra who is the justice of the peace and dogcatcher. When it turns out that another resident, Amos, who she thought belonged to the watch, has no claim to it, the plot “thickens” as they say involving murder and intrigue.
            I was especially intrigued by Ms Klumpers knowledge of gemstones and precious metals. Those details, for me, authenticated the story. The epilogue wraps it up nicely into a wonderful tale for a winter’s read. Nice job, Anita.

About Anita:

Winter Watch is Anita Klumpers’ first novel, but she has previous experience writing skits and short plays. These have been performed for dozens of audiences and hundreds of people. Lately she has been doing some technical writing and editing and content marketing.
Romantic suspense is her favorite genre, especially when a bit of humor is interjected. In an attempt to make the world a tidier, more civil place, she blogs as The Prude. Anita lives with her husband and mutt in south central Wisconsin. Spare time is spent meddling in her grown children's lives, spoiling grandbabies, teaching drama class and acting in an independently produced movie.

You may purchase Winter Watch on Amazon.
