"DV Berkom?s Bad Spirits is a fast paced action packed novella which reads like a nonstop high octane movie. Each chapter moves at breakneck speed. The heroine, Kate, barely has time to take a breather before finding herself in another impossible situation and back on the run..." -Todd Fonseca, (Author) Goodreads.com
"...Bad Spirits takes place in Mexico with Kate trying to escape a well-known and menacing drug lord. The fact that she lightened his money stash is an even better reason to get out of the country. You won't be disappointed in the read, but you will be hungering for more."
-Ginger Simpson, Examiner E-Books Reviewer
"...Berkom?s principal character, Kate, is a feisty, adventurous, albeit naïve?following the heart more than the head?full speed ahead, high energy, fast thinking and acting character once she comes to her senses. She is out maneuvered at every turn, it seems, by a superior adversary, a relentless Mexican drug lord named Salazar, yet she holds true to her commitment to defeat him. Courage. That is what separates Berkom?s characters from those created by others. A realistic kind of courage..." Duane Schwartz, Author
"...Action packed, fast paced and blood smeared, this series has everything an action lover would die for: Good looking girl - falls for bad guy - realizes her mistake - tries to run away only to find out exactly how bad he really is. Oh yeah... Did I mention she also stole his money? Like... A lot of it? And that he is a big Mexican drug dealer? Yeah. You get the picture..." PaulaSHx (Hardman), Book Reviewer/Blogger
