Publisher's Summary

With her cabin a pile of ashes and her lite in pieces, champion Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold has gratefully accepted a friend's proposal that she drive his motor home up from Idaho, along the Alaska Highway: a breathtaking, 2,000-mile-long route winding past hot springs, glaciers, and ice-blue lakes. But the idyllic trip takes a dark turn when a teenage hitchhiker brings terror aboard. Frightened and alone, Patrick Cutler disappears just before the police inform Jessie that the young runaway is wanted in connection with two shocking murders. Suddenly she is cast into a raging maelstrom of dark secrets and deadly consequences. And the cold and empty road she's traveling could be leading her not to her home, but to a grave in the trackless wilderness.

    "Alaska RV adventure"

    Sue Henry has enlarged Jessie Arnold's world with an RV trip from Idaho to her home in a brand new Winnebago motorhome. On the trip Jessie meets with retired fellow RV traveler, Maxie McNabb and her daschund, Stretch. There is suspense and mystery enough to keep one listening until the very end.

    As an RVer myself, I found the story so compelling a travelogue, I am beginning to plan my own Alaska RV adventure.

    "I hate guided reviews..."
    Where does Dead North rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First, I would actually give the story 3.5 stars if I could. It's better than a 3 but I'm fairly stingy with 4s and downright miserly with 5s. This was a middle of the pack book. I may listen to it again and I will very likely get more of the series just because it was a light read that wasn't silly or boring and sometimes that is exactly what I need. Usually in that frame of mind, I will listen to a British Cozy or a Stephanie Plum but there are only so many of those available;o)


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The coincidences just strained credibility. This was a cross country trip but with all the times they kept running into the same people you would have thought the whole thing took place in a small town in Oklahoma. And I know that the RV community is a entity unto itself but people still can't really be THAT immediately and fully trusting of those around them on the highways and in campgrounds. It is still the 21st century after all.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The parts that let you get to know the main character had potential. I can identify with her which is why I plan to read more of the series. Her daughters condescending attitude and her ability to just let it go was kinda great.


    Any additional comments?

    If, like me, you sometimes just need escapist reading and you aren't into steamy romances or teenage vampires, this book might be just the thing. Just don't expect more from it than it can give. It isn't great literature and it isn't full of gore or sex, just some interesting characters with a bit of action and suspense.
