Publisher's Summary

Zigzagging the country in a mini-Winnie means endless adventure, and Maxie McNabb is always up for something new. So she and her dog, Stretch, head for the heat of New Mexico, where Maxie plans to learn how to weave. But everything changes for the sleepy town when a local woman attempts suicide. A casualty of her husband's mid-life crisis, she was replaced by a newer, sexier model. And to top it off, a sleazy conman has set his sights on her. Maxie may be on vacation, but she's determined to help the poor thing. With her nose for trouble, she'll leave no mesa unturned until she brings two dogs to justice, neither of whom is Stretch.

Critic Reviews

"Maxie's cherished independence and her willingness to seek out new experiences alone and single should resonate with fans of cozy and atmospheric mysteries." (Publishers Weekly)

Pleasant listen

Nice summer read/listen. A bit slow at times; Ms Henry gets bogged down in detail that seems unnecessary. I did enjoy the ending inasmuch as she didn't abruptly reveal whodunnit then end the story. Some, not all, loose ends were tied up and she has Maxie and Stretch on the road for their next adventure.
Lee Adams is a good narrator.

Highly recommend for cozy mystery fans!

Any additional comments?

A very pleasant mystery series - Maxie & Stretch. ("Stretch" is the dog, lol). I've been enjoying this series, and I'm disappointed that there are only 4 books in the series. Nothing objectionable here. A few "cuss" words, but no F-bombs, and definitely no sexual situations - just a nice, pleasant listen. Enjoy! F.Y.I., Audible does not offer "the refuge", which is # 3. I was able to get it at my library. I enjoyed that one, too! Narration is quite good.

The tooth of time

Mostly enjoyable book, though it had a more grisly aspect than the others I've read.

INTRIGUING

Wonderful story, especially for those of us who are experiencing our own "Tooth of Time" moments. How I long to meet up with Maxie & Stretch on the road and share a cup of tea, along with warm conversation. a must read

I love Maxie. She is incredible. A must read. Please add more of her story to Audible books.
