Zigzagging the country in a mini-Winnie means endless adventure—and Maxie McNabb is always up for something new. So she and her dog, Stretch, head for the heat of New Mexico, where Maxie plans to learn how to weave. But everything changes for the sleepy town when a local woman attempts suicide. A casualty of her husband’s mid-life crisis, she was replaced by a newer, sexier model. And to top it off, a sleazy conman has set his sights on her. Maxie may be on vacation, but she’s determined to help the poor thing. With her nose for trouble, she’ll leave no mesa unturned until she brings two dogs to justice—neither of whom is Stretch.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Maxie’s cherished independence and her willingness to seek out new experiences alone and single should resonate with fans of cozy and atmospheric mysteries.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The laid-back approach has its own charms, and Henry give readers a grand slice of America's southwestern landscape…Maxie is a pleasant heroine who not only acts her age but also loves her life and rises to the occasion when the occasion finally arises.”

    " A good, cozy type mystery. Like the main characters, Maxine and Stretch her mini dachshund. Set in Taos, New Mexico where my husband and son are soon going hiking in the scout camp, Philmont. They will see the Tooth of Time while they are there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/19/2014

    " I read The Refuge, the third book, before this one and was a little dismayed at several similar plot elements, but the story was light and enjoyable and the travel descriptions interesting--which seem to be the main point of this series anyway. I'm beginning to wonder if she's sponsored by an RV trade association. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 12/12/2013

    " Another fun read for the boomer age woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauri Hillesheim | 12/11/2013

    " Was an easy read. The mystery was kind of thin, but I love Maxie and Stretch. I also loved how the author taught us the area history without it being boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quinn | 11/8/2013

    " A fast, entertaining read. I enjoy the description of the places Maxie goes as much as the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 11/1/2013

    " Nice, 'cozy' mystery. A little quiet but a good change of pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 10/30/2013

    " liked better than the first, probably because of all the information about yarn and weaving "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Yenko | 10/23/2013

    " good, but not as good as the other series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 9/24/2013

    " I always enjoy Maxie and Stretch and this book has them in New mexico on a vacation. The title comes from a mountain in the area of Taos, NM. where they of course find themselves embrioled in another mystery. Enjoyable and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 9/16/2013

    " This was a book on CD. The main character is pretty stupid at times but if you don't listen too closely, it passes the travel time well enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee | 9/7/2013

    " What can I say? A feisty old woman driving her mini-Wini around the country with her dachshund, solving mysteries -- gotta love her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 faeriecrone | 4/3/2013

    " It has been a long time since I read a non-fantasy mystery. The descriptions of Taos and the surrounding areas were interesting and the character believable. It is an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 2/22/2013

    " On sale for $1.00 at a yard sale. Didn't like it as much as her Alaska stories, very light and super quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melvago | 2/21/2013

    " Like the review says: She's the Winnebago-driving, pistol-packing sixty-something-year-old-and she's back, with her dog. I enjoyed the lite mystery, the explanation of weaving and view of the Southwest. She's an independent woman and I liked reading about her trials, triumphs and travels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/5/2013

    " A fun book on unabridged CD. Liked the story and the telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Haman | 11/2/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 9/12/2012

    " Easy, undemanding read. I cared more about the dog than any of the human characters, but I'm kind of like that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lanita | 8/11/2012

    " The story was good, but the first part read more like a real journal--rambling and unfocused. Once I got past that, it picked up and was rather interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grey853 | 10/15/2011

    " This has the interesting premise that senior Maxie is traveling around in her Winnebago with her dog Stretch. Unfortunately, the mystery part of the novel is a letdown. The characters aren't that well developed, either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Egbert | 6/22/2011

    " I had forgotten about this series, it is a tad predictable but fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joan Colby | 5/12/2011

    " The tone of the narrator of this mystery series, Maxie Mcnabb, is annoying with its conventional insertions of adjectives like "pleasant", "attractive", "comfortable" and much of the book reads like a travel brochure. Yet, Henry's plots are pretty well done and her culprits are a surprise. "
