Nothing Gold Can Stay is the third book in the Liam Campbell series. Set in the Alaskan Bush you get a sense of the people and atmosphere of the small community. Marguerite Gavin once again brings the characters to life and the feel of the community comes across in her performance.
Dana Must Love Robert Frost because her book titles come from the Names of his Poems or phrases within his poems.
This book and the series as a whole could be titled "Love and Murder and Murder and Murder". I for one will not visit the Alaskan Outback because there are just too many dead people.
I like the character interaction and the real life drama but I hope that maybe there are other crimes in Liam Campbell's future.
Dana is a good writer and I enjoy here stories. I am more intrigued by the relationships than the solving of the crimes. That is the Gold in this series.

I liked this one--the plot is sort of crazy and the reader/listner needs patience as all of the back stories and victims develop during the story. Stabenow clearly knows Alaska and does a great job writing about the location, people & culture. Some of the characters, Wy and Moses, for example, develop more fully. All of those things seem to enhance the story. Some of the characters and locations are fascinating. Sometimes,I lost track of which/where the characters existed. The narrator did a good job differentiating characters--I could always tell when Moses was speaking. Like Clancy, the writing frequently jumps around and eventually gets tied together. Stabenow writes a highly charged story that grabs you from the first page and never lets go. Next, book 4.
Dane Stabenow gets a gold star for the latest addition of the Liam Campbell series. This story is the best yet. The characters are well developed and plot is fast paced and very entertaining. Stabenow showed her writing chops in this one. I plan to buy and start the next book today.
Great story, great characters and of course Marguerite Gavin does a great job narrating.
I hope the next one pops up on audible soon.
