 Description:

This was cute story for your christmas fancy. It was written by Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol Higgins Clark. It's the story of co-workers who played the lottery always hopping to land a winning ticket. They were bummed when this year their boss the local store owner gives them a wedding picture of him and the 'skunk' his 2nd wife. When one of the co-workers disappears after the winners of the ticket is announced. Many speculate as to what happened to him.



From beloved mother-daughter duo Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, and Carol Higgins Clark, author of the hugely popular Regan Reilly mystery series, comes Dashing Through the Snow, a holiday treat you won't want to miss.

In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, the townsfolk are all pitching in to prepare for the first (and many hope annual) Festival of Joy. The night before the festival begins, a group of employees at the local market learn that they have won $160 million in the lottery. One of their co-workers, Duncan, decided at the last minute, on the advice of a pair of crooks masquerading as financial advisers, not to play. Then he goes missing. A second winning lottery ticket was purchased in the next town, but the winner hasn't come forward. Could Duncan have secretly bought it?
The Clarks' endearing heroes -- Alvirah Meehan, the amateur sleuth, and private investigator Regan Reilly -- have arrived in Branscombe for the festival. They are just the people to find out what is amiss. As they dig beneath the surface, they find that life in Branscombe is not as tranquil as it appears. So much for an old-fashioned weekend in the country. This fast-paced holiday caper will keep you dashing through the pages!
My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this story, just enough to make people wonder when the sleuths will figure out where people are but not too much that it gets distracting during the holidays. It's also a great book written with out the foul language, which is a rarity. My rating on this book was a four cups
