Narrator Suzanne Toren absolutely sparkles even though she's regaling listeners with the honeymoon from hell in this eighth installment of the Clare Fergusson-Russ Van Alstyne mystery series. Their ice-fishing getaway is continually interrupted--first by a ghastly storm, then by a deadly fire and the disappearance of a girl. Lively police officers, nosy and concerned parishioners from Clare's church, and wily criminals are distinctly drawn by Toren. She also skillfully handles subtle humor and myriad accents, including, of course, Clare's lovely Southern drawl. In addition to searching for the girl, Clare and Russ worry about losing their jobs as they adjust to impending parenthood. This is a slice of contemporary American life with audio adding to the ambiance of friends sharing their lives and worries. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
