WINNER OF THE 2014 READERS FAVORITE AWARD: DRAMA


"A dark debut novel about the aftereffects of domestic violence... Tense and suspenseful, October Snow is a gripping read to the very end, highly recommended." - Midwest Book Review


Josie Kane is a "difficult" woman, a pure enigma - one who survives her abusive husband by honing her unnerving talent for playing mind games: she knows exactly how to manipulate a bully.


Finally divorced, she thinks the abuse is over, and she's free. She's wrong. And her cynicism is building.


Josie works with battered women, trying to rescue them from a fate similar to hers. But on the night that yet another woman is murdered by an abusive husband, pining for a hero as she dies in Josie's arms, her cynicism becomes a quiet, simmering hatred.


Her one remaining refuge is in her bond with Maxine and Samantha, the two friends whom she loves like sisters. When Samantha becomes pregnant by Jack - an abuser who makes known his intentions to use the baby as a weapon of control - Josie's hatred ripens to a vengeful fury.


She sets out to take on one more batterer, manipulate one more bully... And she lures Jack into the crosshairs of the ultimate mind game.


Her friends are convinced that she intends to rid Samantha of Jack. They're right.


But with Josie Kane, as always, there's a twist.


With her friends helpless to stop her - and with Samantha hanging in the balance - Josie squares off with Jack in a life-and-death, winner-lose-all battle of wits to determine which side will win Sammy's future.


And this time, there will be a hero.
