Editorial Reviews

Dana Sutton
"Two of my favorite things . . . a "To Die For" mystery and The War
Eagle Craft Fair. How lucky Arkansas is to have this author writing
about so many of our state treasures. I look forward to each Carrie
and Henry adventure."
Donna Fletcher Crow
" Fans of Radine Trees Nehring's To Die For series will be delighted
with A FAIR TO DIE FOR. Carrie has never been in better form--nor
gotten into worse trouble; and her relationship with the lovely
Henry--at much of the heart of the story--never deeper.

"Set at the historic War Eagle Craft Fair, the dangers that engulf
Carrie are buried in the tangles of family history. Or are they? Is
the lonely Edie who turns up on Carrie's doorstep really a cousin, or

Meet the Author

Radine Trees Nehring’s writing career began when she fell in love with the Arkansas Ozarks and wanted to tell people why. Her essays and feature articles about the people, places, and events in her adopted state began selling almost immediately to magazines and newspapers regionally, nationally, and internationally. Her first book, the non-fiction “DEAR EARTH: a Love Letter from Spring Hollow,” sold to a New York publisher and was released in 1995. For ten years following that she hosted a fifteen-minute radio program, “Arkansas Corner Community News,” reporting the news from her area of the Ozarks. As an avid mystery reader since Nancy Drew days, Radine then decided to try her hand at writing a mystery. The first in her Carrie and Henry “To Die For” amateur detective series came out in 2002, rapidly drawing fans into the mysterious Ozarks and the adventures of Carrie McCrite and Henry King. This lead to a continuation of the series.
Radine’s written work has earned a number of awards, both nationally and in her home state. She is a member of Ozarks area writers organizations, as well as Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and Authors Guild, and is a popular speaker and teacher on her favorite topics related to writing.

    In spite of continual bumps in their road of life, Carrie McCri

    In spite of continual bumps in their road of life, Carrie McCrite and
    her second husband, Henry, forge onward. They both have healthy,
    positive attitudes. That’s mildly surprising for Henry. He’s retired
    from a career as a cop in Kansas City. They expected to live a quiet,
    typical retiree life in the Ozarks. Fate intervenes, in the form of a
    long-forgotten cousin named Edith Embler. Edith blows into town looking
    for family history and bringing behind her a variety of really bad dudes
    who seem to hang around craft fairs with evil intent. The story rests
    in a really clever idea, and the author handles the plot necessities
    carefully and responsibly. Her skill as a writer puts this novel very
    much in a positive cozy sort of grouping. Like a lot of traditional
    American mysteries, this story has a harder edge than is typically found
    in the classical, traditional, stories from the UK. Carrie’s
    experience and generosity of spirit in wanting to help Edith in every
    possible way play out nicely against her husband’s more suspicious and
    cautious nature. The novel is interestingly peopled with several unusual
    characters who add to the richness of the scene. I’ve been reading this
    author over a number of years and am pleased to recommend this novel. It
    is in the end a satisfying mystery involving nice people who are truly
    competent. In the end, one might view with a certain hesitation, if not
    suspicion, the abrupt arrival of long-lost relatives.
