Dashing Through the Snow by Mary Higgins Clark & Carol Higgins Clark

Unabridged Audio Version
December is upon us and I'm in a festive holiday mood!! Eager to celebrate the upcoming Christmas holiday, I've been busy reading or listening to holiday themed books since the beginning of November. 

I recently finished listening to the unabridged version of Dashing Through the Snow by mother and daughter writing duo Mary Higgins Clark & Carol Higgins Clark. Dashing Through the Snow is read by Carol Higgins Clark and the approximate playing time for this novel is 5 hours and 12 minutes.

I enjoyed listening to this easy, breezy, fun filled holiday novel. It offered a large cast of characters, interesting storyline and the right amount of humor and suspense. So, if you're looking forward to a no fuss holiday themed novel to get you through the holiday season, then this may be the one for you.

The following is the publisher's summary for Dashing  Through the Snow, which I discovered from Audible:
From beloved mother-daughter duo Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark comes 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.
I'm giving Dashing Through the Snow a rating of 6.5 stars out of 10 stars. Until my next post, happy reading!!
