Seriously, how STUPID can a book get?

This is the 5th Christmas story co-authored by mother/daughter team Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark. They are short, cute mysteries that are easy to read.

In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, it’s time for the Festival of Joy. The town are all working together to prepare for this first, hopefully, annual festival. When the hard-working, long-time employees of Conklins do not get the expected Christmas bonus, they leave the store disgruntled. When it turns out that

With character names like Muffie and Flower, you know you are not in for a deep read. It was improbable, predictable and cheesy but it was a light fun read. Not one of MHC best by a long shot. It starts with a Christmas festival being held in a small New Hampshire town. Four employees from a local market win big in the lottery and mayhiem starts and the festival gets lost in the shuffle of things. Without going into any detail, everything works out and a happy ending is had by all. I'd only reco ...more

I wish there were more of these! I love both Carol's and Mary's books, but these are the quickest read for me. I try to read one between Christmas and New Year's every year. I will be sad when these run out!

I believe I'm getting attached tho these (Regan Reilly)books....this is the third one I've read and love how everything seems to really come together for everyone in these books. (Yes the happy endings).And two of them have been christmas books, which I love reading.I would recommend these books to read if you like warm fuzzy comforting endings.

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..
For the month of December my book club selected this book and it's our second book in two years by Mary Higgins Clark. Needless to say that makes it my second time reading a book by her.
The story of a group of co-workers winning the lottery right before Christmas was quite cute. The author set them in a small town were everyone knows everyone and everyone's business was very picturesque in a small town way. I love the mystery element they brought in and how the characters slowly but not too slo

It’s time for the Festival of Joy, but joy seems hard to come by. The hard-working employees at the local market don’t get the Christmas bonus they’ve come to expect. Instead, the new bride of the owner talks her husband into giving framed pictures of their wedding. Needless to say, the employees are more than a little disappointed. But that feeling doesn’t last when they discover they have won the lottery. That is, all but one of the regular players who backed out at the last moment. Things go ...more
In the 5th and final installment of the holiday mystery series from Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, Dashing Through the Snow, Alvirah Meehan and Regan Reilly return to solve another Christmas caper. This time, they head to Branscombe, New Hampshire, when they held their first ever festival of joy. The night before, a bunch of co-workers learned they won the $120 million lottery. One of their employees named Duncan decided to join at the last minute and was told by a couple of phony ...more
I personally didn't like the book. I read it because it was a requirement that we had to read a certain type of book and this was the only book that looked interesting to me. Overall the book was interesting and this is because when it started talking about how some group of people won lots of money that's when I started to get into it but later on it became a bit boring because it didn't have any mysteries things happening to the people or the money. I would rate it a 3 because I didn't enjoy t ...more

We picked this up on CD to listen to while driving to St. George for Thanksgiving.

We are about half way through, and so far find a bit too contrived in spots. A better read than "The Cat Who" series - - - have enjoyed a number of quite clever and humorous episodes.

At this moment, I would give it 3 stars. . . .

And now, having finished the book, I have to downgrade that to 2 1/2 stars. With every one of the 5 CDs, we kept asking each other, "How on *earth* are they going to keep this story going f

It was a cute story and a light read. I bought it in a bargin bin last summer and saw one of the earlier books in the series as a movie on TNT over the holidays. I haven't liked Mary Higgins Clark in general, but I would read another one of this series.

While I did enjoy the story, this was not a good book. It was surprising how poorly written it was. Very amateurish, I thought. On the otherhand, I wanted a fun, quick Christmas themed read and that's exactly what it was. I can't complain too much.

Good holiday read. Had some weird charcter twists that left me scratching my head, but really a quick read.
Fun and light hearted. I read it in 3 days.

M.H. Clark have written 5 Christmas mysteries. Laurel and I have read them all, Fun holiday reading!

This was a quick read. Was as good as the other books I have read by this author. Its a love story and mystery in one.
Okay. A very quick read. Amusing but not well developed. Way too many characters to keep track of.
Becky Rasdall
Easy Christmas read, but not great. I normally love MHC books!
Another crossover book for Clark and Clark involving beloved characters Jack and Regan Reilly and Alvirah and Willy Meehan. As usual, there's a lot going on, much of it madcap. Regular readers should enjoy.
A group of employees in a small town have won the lottery. In an act of generosity, they decide to share the ticket with their coworker Duncan because, even though he didn't contribute, he picked their last number. And it turns out to be a wonderful thing because the owner of the store's new w

Hello, Fellow Book Worms and Book Dragons!

To celebrate the coming of Spring I returned to Christmas with my latest book that I read- Dashing Through the Snow by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark .

Since 1995 Mary Higgins Clark has been celebrating the Christmas season with her series of holiday novels. Each one has taken her readers on a suspenseful trip into the world of crime. Beginning with Silent Night, this series of books have been bestsellers many times over. But it was not unt
Selu Winnenberg

It's dorky but fun—a typical Alvirah/Regan mash-up story, but with better one-off characters than some of the previous installments.

Mon avis: J'ai lu ce livre dans le cadre du challenge cold winter organisé par Antonine et Margaud et dans le cadre également du challenge - lecture commune de Noël organisé par fais moi peur et puis également dans le cadre du marathon Thriller organisé par cookies cela fait pas mal de challenges pour un seul livre mais comme je savais que j'aurais malheureusement très peu de temps à lire pendant cette période de Noël j'ai regroupé tous mes challenges ensemble.

Un libro leggero e con una trama semplice e scontata. Consigliato a chi vuole leggere qualcosa di veloce e non impegnativo.
Amy Henson
A nice quick little mystery with a few twists and turns in the plot. Bad character development and description led to being quite unsure of who they characters were and how they fit in. End was a little underwhelming.
