Over-all, I tend to lean more to acceptance than rejection although I am troubled by the more melodramatic sections which lead to resolution of the problems. She does well describe the chilled character of her setting, often making me feel that I am somewhere in the neighborhood of the Hudson Bay region or Antarctica. This should be a good bet for those who live in similar climates or want to feel cool on the hot summer beaches. I do imagine that the author will tighten up her prose and occasional literary illogicality of character behavior in the future volumes of the series.
I'll just state that this is a good book. What's particularly well done is the setting. The reader gets a real feel for Jackson Hole and what it's like there in winter.
Why I didn't give it 5 stars: Stephen King once said something to the effect that the formula for his books is that he puts his protagonist up in a tree and throws rocks at him. At the start of the book, McClendon does indeed put her heroine, Alix Thorson, up a tree when her stepfather is arrested for a crime he does not commit. The problem is that McClendon does not throw any "rocks" at Alix for almost the next third of the book as she concentrates on Alix's character. It would have been better if she had combined the two devices. However, I should state that once she does up the tension, the rocks come flying one after another, and the plot builds nicely.
A good book and, better, it's free for now.
Indie review By Jeremy Poole
Nordic Nights (The Alix Thorssen Mysteries) by Lise McClendon
I really expected too much from this mystery thriller. I'd read reviews that gave it all four and five stars. They were wrong!
The writing is good and well crafted, but the sheer unbeleivability and lack of drive left me cold.
Alix, our heroin, is wonderful and hardworking with a sense of justice, so we're told too many times. She is dragged into a mystery where an artist is killed and her mother's boyfriend is blamed. Sounds like a good plot, and it could have worked, if only the inconsistencies were ironed out. For instance, Alix is shot at, three times, through here shop window, she puts cardboard over the bullet hole and carries on working. She never calls the police, or any help at all. The bullets went through a couple of works of art, which didn't belong to her and she told the Norwegian consulate, it was kids driving by having fun????
Then, she is kidnapped, escapes, runs through and American town being shot at. No one call the police, she goes into a hotel and then doesn't call the cops, but sneaks out the back. Sorry too unbelievable. And all for a stone. I don't buy it.
It was a struggle to finish this book, so I'm sorry Lise but I can't recommend Nordic nights to anyone. Two stars.
