Synopsis (Goodreads):
Her name is Frankie. At least, that’s what she calls herself.

She looks human, but she’s no more human than she is a faith-healer. That doesn’t stop her from using her…more unique abilities to take care of certain needs. It’s those abilities that lead to a chance encounter with an unusual woman in Florida.

It’s a chance encounter with fate that will set these two down a collision course with destiny.
Thoughts on Misery's Way: For those who haven't read the series, I HIGHLY recommend going back and falling into this world. It's dark. It's dangerous. And it's completely addictive. While this *could* be read as a stand-alone, you'll get so much more out of the gift Frankie give Kit if you know the horror that Kit experienced in the past.

Plus, those earlier books are just gut-wrenchingly good and I TOTALLY recommend them. So, go. Read them and come back to see why this short adds another layer to the already complex, compelling world of Kit Colbana.

As for this book, I hope we get to see more of Frankie and her enigmatic sidekick (I'd never call him that to his face, btw. I'm pretty sure he'd kill me just for thinking that about him.) down the road. The mystery of what she is and who she's running from intrigue me. The circumstances of what she needs to survive intrigue me.

As always, J.C. Daniels has given us another character who hides far more beneath the surface than she'd ever show the world. And once again, I'm smitten.


  1. I will be very disappointed if we don't see more of Frankie. Although this story was short, I still enjoyed it. I can't wait to get back into Kit's life.

    1. I'm trying to reread this series this year and I got stuck on book 2. I don't know if I'm ready to be gutted all over again. *sobs* This was the perfect peek back in for me and it gave me hope!
