Publisher's Summary

At 63, Maxie is cruising down the Alaska Highway in her brand-new Winnebago. She's always been a gypsy at heart, and with her mini-dachshund at her side, and the open road ahead, she's never been happier. But before her exploration of the Lower 48 gets underway, Maxie needs to figure out who burglarized her friend's Colorado home, and why. But the closer Maxie gets to solving the puzzle, the more it becomes chillingly clear that her friend's life isn't the only one on the line.

Maxie definitely doesn't leap to conclusions

This is the second book in the series that I've listened to. What I like: the main character, Maxie, seems like a real person; the whole traveling by yourself life in a Winnebago is so fun to "ride along" on vicariously; and Stretch plays a pretty darn good second banana. What I don't like: at times, the narration sounds like a travelogue; at other times, a very boring monologue. The narrator can go into excruciating detail about a local landmark - I'm guessing to establish a sense of place - and what's tougher for me to take, can also go into excruciating detail about her inner thoughts on a barely relevant but not especially interesting topic just when the external action starts to pick up. And Maxie, because in some ways she is so slow and deliberate, can sometimes worry back and forth over a conclusion that seems so obvious. I find myself telling my CD player, "Duh - you think?" All in all, it's entertaining enough, but if you like your action to move along at a brisk pace, this author's style may drive you crazy.
