Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

At the start of Henry's intriguing third mystery to feature Maxie McNabb (after 2006's The Tooth of Time), the 64-year-old Alaskan leaves home—and her mini-dachshund Stretch—to help a widowed, injured acquaintance, Karen Parker Bailey, in Hawaii. Hobbling on crutches, Karen needs Maxie's assistance packing up to move back to Alaska, but Maxie's reluctant good Samaritan work turns hazardous: the first night a prowler almost breaks in, the next day Karen's plumbing is sabotaged. Maxie senses Karen is concealing something when she overhears a whispered phone call. Maxie hires Jerry, the conveniently just-fired plumber's assistant, to help with the move. When Karen goes on ahead to Alaska, Maxie rents an RV so she can tour the island with Jerry until their flight home. But the real danger closes in as they travel to a park, the Refuge, which, of course, turns out to be anything but. Despite a touch of cuteness, Maxie is good company, and she teams with Jerry to entertaining effect. (Apr.)

    Sue Henry Does It Again!

    The Refuge is another of
    Sue Henry's Maxie and Stretch books and I was delighted to find it. These books are fun to read and provide so many wonderful descriptions of the places where the stories happen. They are well researched and hard to put down. I hope she keeps writing more of them.

    A Totally Different Venue for Maxie & Surly Missed Stretch

    Have enjoyed Henry's first two in this new series and was eager to read 'The Refuge'. Totally different location for this one, Hawaii, and the Mini Winnie wasn't her mode of transportation. But you can always count on Maxie to help out when called upon. Plot was very intangled and interesting. I learned much about an island in Hawaii, with Maxie as a curious second hand guide. I felt she opened up a few doors in this novel for others to come. BUT I missed her little buddy Stretch! Hope he is not left behind in future books.

    exciting mystery

    After being away from her Alaskan abode for the past nine months sixty four year old Maxie McNabb yearns for her home in Homer. She has spent time with her mini-dachshund in the lower forty-eight states around the Four Corners region of the Southwest. When she arrives at her home, she has less than a week to enjoy it before a friendly acquaintance calls her from Hilo, Hawaii asking for her help. In a fall she tripped, hurting an arm and a leg and is out of commission. She needs Maxie to help her sort, point, sells and more to Alaska. --- Maxie reluctantly heads to the fiftieth state to help Karen out, even knowing that before Karen was injured, she was helpless and always needing someone to tell her what to do and how to do it. Needing a break from her friend, she goes sightseeing and meets the plumber¿s helper Jerry who has worked on Karen¿s house. They put Karen on a plane and get to work packing and then they plan to do some sight-seeing. However, men want something from Maxie and they will kill them if necessary to get it it. Maxie doesn¿t know what they want or where it is but is determined to get the best of the men that stalked her and kidnapped Jerry. --- Sue Henry has written an exciting mystery focusing on a protagonist who has more energy at sixty-four than people do in their twenties. She certainly shows that life can be fulfilling as a senior while she appreciate the beauty of the things around us like Maxie does in Hawaii. There is lots of action, no blood or gore and a great cast. Readers will immediately take to the heroine and Jerry who is not quite what he seems. --- Harriet Klausner
