New York Times bestselling authors Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark’s Christmas novel, Dashing through the Snow is now available on audio!

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 coworkers, 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).

    " Another good, simple holiday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kenisha | 2/10/2014

    " I particularly enjoyed the community spirit in this novel. I love the way Mary Higgins Clark captured the essence of friendsip too, and the way in which she showed genorousity between the lottery winners. Moderate level of suspense and thriller, a good book to enjoy.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorlise O'Hara | 2/8/2014

    " Nice book..Was in the mood ..have not read Mary Higgins Clark for a very long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mekhi | 1/23/2014

    " As expected of the mother-daughter tandem of Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, I just read another thrilling mystery with humor and refreshingly no dead bodies. The story was fast paced as well, spanning just two days. A fun read indeed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally Wolf | 1/19/2014

    " When a group of workers at a small town grocery win the lottery their joy is overshadowed by the sudden disappearance of one of their co-workers. The amateur sleuth Alvirah Meehan and her friend Reagan Reilly, a private investigator, jump in to unravel a mystery so big that it takes the whole town on a wild ride. I liked this little book. It was worth the quick read and written in the classic Clark style. Great characters, wonderful story, and just when you thought you knew exactly what was going on, they throw in a curve you never would have expected. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a comfort book to curl up with by the Christmas tree. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noelle | 1/5/2014

    " This was a fun, quick holiday read. The best part was that it took place in New Hampshire, which is where I live! I'm also glad that mother and daughter co-write their holiday books because mother is a much better writer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 1/3/2014

    " An easy read with an enjoyable cast of characters. A little bit predictable but neat to see how things tied together. I will definitely be checking out the other books in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirley | 12/30/2013

    " If this book had not been written by famous authors, I doubt it would ever have been published. Low tension, overuse of "wryly"s, and obvious exposition. The good thing was--no swearing, sex or violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 12/19/2013

    " A quick and fun read. The usual quirky characters and quickly solved mystery. I enjoy these when I just want a quick read that does not take a lot of thought. "

    " I liked this book. It read at a good pace. Towards the end you could predict what was going to happen, but I didn't mind that. "

    " It was a pretty good book and there was an element of mystery and surprise that get me hooked. I do have to say that the solving of the mystery was a bit anti-climatic. Overall, it was a pretty good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 11/4/2011

    " Although I enjoyed this book I didn't feel it was as good as some of the other books that Mary and Carol have written together. It didn't seem like Regan and Alvirah got a lot of time devoted to them in the book, I think that's what I didn't like about it. Still a fun, quick read. "
