I love this whole series! So interesting to learn about Alaska, mushing, and sled dogs, while solving a mystery with Jessie and Alex.
Just ok- In my opinion there are others who are better alaskan mystery writers.
Another great Alaskan mystery by Sue Henry.
I enjoyed this book as I do all of Sue Henry's Jessie Arnold books.
In a breathtaking land of ice and cold, death will come by fire and Hessie Arnold must use all her skills to find a murderer...and to avoid being his next victim.
In the lingering chill of the early Alaskan spring, famed "musher" Jessie Arnold confronts the charred remains of a favorite local pub, destroyed by a suspicious blaze that claimed an innocent, unsuspecting life. This lull between racing seasons is meant to be a time of grueling training and conditioning for Jessie and her dogsled team - but instead it has become a time of fear. Because the burning has only begun, and its flames will scar and blister Jessie's world in ways she can barely imagine. And in the wake of more death, her next race will be one for survival - as she struggles to determine whether a desperate friend is a terrified victim...or a killer.
I picked this up at our "support for those of domestic violence" sale. I knew i liked this author as she is the one i had read who wrote the Maxie and Stretch stories and i had enjoyed those alot. I read the book and had no idea that this is book 7 in a series. So guess that says you can start anywhere and not be lost. It was a fun read and chocked full of murder and suspense, as Ms. Henry's books are. This one i found extra special as i learned alot about sled dogs and i loved the idea of a different setting with the sled races and Alaska. It was fun, i'll find book 1 now and go thru the rest of the series.
