Product Overview

In the charming 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--amateur sleuth Alvirah Meehan 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. Filled with suspense and humor, "Dashing Through the Snow" is a heartwarming thriller, that rates "a cheerful ho, ho, ho" ("Publishers Weekly").

Author Info
Mary Higgins Clark
Mary Higgins Clark grew up in a Catholic household in the Bronx. Her life has been marked by several traumatic losses; her father, when she was 10, and later, her husband of 15 years. Left with five children to support, Clark turned to writing. She soon mastered the suspense novel, and won international acclaim as a recipient of the Grand Prix de Literature Policiere. Clark is active in literacy education as well as a number of historical and literary associations, including the American Irish Historical Society, the Mystery Writers of America, and the International Crime Writers Congress.
Carol Higgins Clark is the author of an immensely popular mystery series featuring private eye Regan Reilly, whose backstory includes a mother who is a famed writer. That detail is drawn from real life; Carol ?s mother is Mary Higgins Clark, the beloved author of dozens of best-selling thrillers. Carol, one of five children, was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey. While still a student at Mt. Holyoke College, she often helped her mother, who had been widowed in 1964, by typing her manuscripts and making minor edits to them. After studying acting at the Beverly Hills Playhouse and appearing in a handful of plays and films--among them a television movie based on her mother's book A CRY IN THE NIGHT--Carol decided to try her own hand at writing. The first Regan Reilly book, DECKED, was published in 1992 and was nominated for both Anthony and Agatha awards. The Regan Reilly books have since been widely praised for their humor. A reviewer once remarked, "Mary Higgins Clark goes for the jugular; Carol Higgins Clark goes for the funny bone." In addition to that series, Carol has collaborated with Mary on several holiday-themed thrillers.
Praise
"The amiable cast of characters...gives this pleasant holiday diversion a light charm that would be welcome any time of the year."
