The Tooth of Time (Maxie and Stretch Series #2) by Sue Henry

She's the Winnebago-driving, pistol-packing sixty-something-year-old-and she's back, with her mini-Dachshund Stretch. She's Maxie McNabb-and criminals from the frigid Iditarod Trail to the scorching Southwest had better beware. This time, before leaving New Mexico's lovely warmth, Maxie sets out to turn one on-edge town back into a peaceful pueblo.

Twice widowed, sixty-three years old Maxie McNabb, an Alaskan resident most of her life, tours the lower forty-eight with her ¿Minnie-Winnie¿ Winnebago and her dog Stretch. After leaving Colorado (see THE SERPENTS TRAIL) she tours New Mexico before stopping in Taos where she visits the Weaving Southwest, a tapestry gallery. Maxie and owner Pat Dozier hit it off and weave a friendship. --- When new resident Shirley Morgan apparently tried to commit suicide, the two women visit her as she has become a friend of Pat. Feisty Shirley insists she was not trying to kill herself with carbon monoxide poisoning though despondent that her spouse dumped her for a younger woman. Maxie begins making some inquires and soon agrees that the woman was the victim of a murder attempt with the killer adhering to the proverb if at first you don¿t succeed try again. --- THE TOOTH OF TIME is an enjoyable cozy starring sexagenarian Alaskan (it is a Sue Henry tale, duh), who makes friends while traveling the southwest. Maxie is terrific in her latest caper as she cannot help but getting involved with what happened to Shirley. Though the mystery starts towards the middle of the strong plot as friendships are first forged, fans will want to hitch a ride with Maxie and Stretch as they find the Land of Enchantment enchanting but dangerous. --- Harriet Klausner

Maxie McNabb and her mini dachshund, Stretch, travel across the country in a small winnebago, haveing adventures. She's late middle aged. Fun but I didn't finish it.

Because I recently traveled to Taos NM where the book is mostly set, I enjoyed revisiting it in this latest Sue Henry. Generally I like both of her series. However, the plotting seemed off, with improper foundation set for the denouement.

I like Henry's outstanding writing and I like the stories about Maxie McNabb adventures and her curiosity to explore the lower 48 in her "Motor Home with her dog, Stretch. Her travels take her to Taos, NM, where she meets an old friend from Alaska where her home is and she makes new friends among the weavers of Taos and tried to help a woman who they thought attempted suicide. Then this woman disappears without a trace, Maxie is in danger after her motor home was broken in to and threaten by someone and flees Taos. Maxie returns to Taos after finding what the person that broke into her motor home was looking for to give it to the police to catch the killer.
