This is my first Alix Thorssen mystery. Alix Thorssen is a very realistic and likeable character. I read so many mysteries, when I find one that truly surprises, I get excited. That was the case with this book...there were so many plot twists that I never saw coming and they all came together nicely to a very believable conclusion. My one complaint is that I wish something more would have happened with Carl...it was a little disappointing how that part of the story worked out. I agree with the other reviews of McClendon's work that she has the ability to describe things in a way that makes you feel like you're right there. Looking forward to reading the third mystery in this series, Nordic Nights.
have to say, the story and plot were pretty well done, but occasionally i found the writing itself to be disjointed and in need of an editor.
there were at least two places in the book where a context change occurred out of the blue, with absolutely no warning. each of these was quite jarring, and required the reader to figure out where the story line needed to be mended so it could be understood.
other than that, though, a fascinating story with what felt like real-life twists. with a good editor on-board, this story could have been a solid five stars. as it is, it's worth your time at 3.5...
I enjoyed reading this book. Stayed up to 3 am to finish it, LOL. A classic mystery with no obvious red herrings giving it away too soon. Enough twists and turns to keep you reading and thinking you might know who "done it", won't say more but its a good book, quite well written, well done.
A burned-out gallery with a dead body in it sets Alix searching for secrets amid friends with their own agenda.
I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Once again, this isn't an awful book, but it just didn't catch my interest. I put it down halfway through and never cared what was going to happen enough to pick it back up. The title was quite clever, and sadly follows my observed rule that the cleverer the title, the less interesting the book.
I have just finished this book and couldn't put it down. I loved the main character, Alix, and how things happened to her. I thought I knew how the story would end but I was so surprised. The descriptive passages were well written and not too long. I loved the way all the characters were developed. It was a great book.
A good mystery that starts with a fire in a local art store in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A dead body and trouble with identification gets the main character Alix Thorssen involved more than she ever wanted. Disrupting her romantic desires and her art business, she soon has a bizarre tale reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock plaguing her. Mild action, mild bad language, mild sex, mild gore, and mostly mystery for the reader to guess about are the tone of the novel.
This character is almost like the hard-boiled detectives I like, but a lot less romantic. Those guys always have a soft spot for somebody. Alix doesn't seem to have a passion for anything or anyone in her life, except detecting. I get the Nordic repression aspect, but I wanted a catharsis to come much sooner than it did. It's hard to care about a woman who doesn't even visit her horse very often.
Great plot twists and character development! In fact the character development was so good that you felt that you knew the main character extremely well. I didn't Like her at all. She was reckless and disrespectful toward others' lives. She always put other people's lives in jeopardy for no reason other than to satisfy her own curiousity about what was happening. Her personality was at odds with her hero role.
