Sue Henry is a former college administrator. She writes the Jessie Arnold Mystery series and the Maxie and Stretch Mystery series. Murder on the Iditarod Trail won the Mystery Readers International Macavity Award for Best First Novel in 1992 and the Anthony Award. It was made into a TV movie starring Kate Jackson and Corbin Bernsen three years later.
Maxie McNabb and Stretch, her faithful miniature dachshund, stay home for the winter and find another mystery to solve when they give a stranger a ride into Homer, AK, as a storm threatens. Soon the man is dead, but no one knows who he is or why he was in Homer.
Verdict: The focus in this fourth entry in Henry's award-winning series (The Serpents Trail) is more on Maxie's daily life than the mystery. Readers looking for a gentle story la Carolyn Hart will be pleasantly rewarded. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ 12/08.]
