Overview

Life in tiny Winslow Falls, New Hampshire, is pretty darned good-until an arsonist decides to ruin everyone's Christmas. The way volunteer fire chief and local postmistress Gwen Fifield sees it, her life in rural New Hampshire is as good as it can be. Sure, she's gained twenty pounds, and her property taxes have skyrocketed, but her basement didn't flood this year, and the general store started delivering pizza. All things considered, Gwen's got no complaints ... that is, until she finds a body sizzled like a sausage in the smoldering remains of the Winslow Falls museum. When an artifact is traced to an immigrant family, most local residents are quick to blame the outsiders. But clues from the past convince Gwen that the town she's always trusted is harboring a home-grown murderer.

Jessie Crockett has done, she has revived the essence of a great cozy mystery. I love the book; the small town essence as greatly portrayed and Gwen is a work of art. This book would be great for a mini-series. I am looking forward to the next book on this series.

Very easy to read. Believable characters living in a small town. Lighthearted and funny even though a murder. Keeps you guessing till the end.

This mystery novel 'Live Free or Die' is an excellent example of a who done it novel which keeps you guessing throughout with an ending which grips you to the core. A real heroine comes out in the end which thoroughly satisfying. A must ready for all mystery buffs.

I found the book to be an interesting read.

I'll admit it. I bought this because it was a bargain, and so I was willing to try an unknown writer. Now I wish their were more books by her! This is a more-plausible-than-usual cozy mystery. No cats, caterers, or housewives solve mysteries the cops cannot. The small town setting and characters were highly believable to this very urban reviewer. The demographic most likely to enjoy this are females of or near the boomer generation.

It is always a pleasure to find a new (or new to me) author who writes well, has interesting, likeable characters and a good story line. I will be looking forward to new books in this series.

Although this is a short book it is very good and will have you cheering the heroine on at the end.

Very rarely do I rate a book five plus stars and this is one of them. Good mystery and the characters are nicely developed. I hope there are many more books in this series. My new favorite author!

Danger & humour in an easy read. The only quibble I have is that the police don' t do much besides accuse foreigners of committing crimes & the fire fighters do all the sleuthing. However, I liked that small town racism & bigotry were included, since that was believable, and that the main character does her best to counter those attitudes in practical ways. She sticks up for the foreigners & befriends them without worrying what others think of her, while keeping an open mind as to the identity/ies of the arsonist & murderer.

This is for someone who wants a casual, relaxing book. It isn't intense, but it was an interesting look at small-town life.
