It's a tricky thing to write a series of novels featuring the same characters -- how do you orient new readers without giving too much away about earlier books and without boring those who've been with the series all the way through? Radine Trees Nehring seems to have found the right balance because I jumped in with the fifth in her Something to Die For Mystery series without ever feeling as though I was crashing a party I hadn't been invited to attend (as I have with some other series' novels).

Though I prefer starting with the first in a series, this one appealed to me because it starts with what seems like a relaxing camping trip along the Buffalo National River in Arkansas. I'm not a camper (not all full-time RVers consider themselves campers) but oddball nextdoor neighbors in places like this one are familiar territory, which makes any novel more intriguing than it might otherwise be.

Not that this book needed help. Nehring has landed on some substantial ground here: nefarious folks involved in illegal enterprises near national lands. Kidnapping. Murder. New love. New marriage. Tensions. Good friends. A plot that seems to lay itself out as flat as a river flows, but not without a turn or two along the way.

It's all here, and then some.

I needed to warm up to Carrie, who might be the main character (hard to say as the book is told from multiple points of view), because she seemed so self-absorbed in the early chapters. Her son seemed even more distant, though eventually, as things were revealed about his life, I came to understand why.

It's to Nehring's credit that she's created characters this realistic. Unfortunately, some of the dialogue tended to fall into monologue. Characters were very polite with each other about not interrupting these long speeches, but I kept hoping someone would do or say something that would give these sections a little more dimension. The other nit I'd pick is how often and in how much detail the characters explained what had happened to each other. A bit of narrative summary would have moved these spots along more quickly, helping the overall pace.

This is more of a suspense novel than a mystery, with plenty of local history and scenery to make the fictional situation come to life.

a RIVER TO DIE FOR by Radine Trees Nehring is my first read of the series and it will not be my last.
Carrie & Henry King with their extended family of Henry's half-sister Catherine and Carrie's son Rob McCrite will keep the reader turning the pages as each person has to explore some deep recesses of the mind to both remain alive and adjust to the evolving changes in their lives.
Nehring's deep love of Arkansas and its wilderness almost takes center stage to the mystery, but her balance enhances our appreciation of wild areas.
The Buffalo National River region is one of unspoiled beauty in the national park system. The effort to preserve the habitats of early human populations, and yet provide both a relaxing vacation experience and an learning environment is the overwhelming job of the National Park Service.
Nehring gives us a rousing read while she blows the horn for our wonderful system of public lands.

I haighly recommend this book for anyone who likes a good mystery. All of the "Something to Die for" Mysteries are very good. Al the mysteries take place in Arkansas and the Ozarks. Not only do you get a great mystery but a lot of information and history of the area. Do yourself a favor and get this book.

RIVER TO DIE FOR by Radine Trees Nehring
Radine Trees Nehring is known for her . . . to Die For series, fun reads with sixties-plus year olds, Carrie, Henry and friends, solving mysteries in historic places in Arkansas. RIVER follows this formula as Carrie's son, Rob, goes exploring along the Buffalo River. He is accompanied by Henry's much younger sister, Catherine. Henry, Carrie's new husband who has not yet learned his place, has made plans for Carrie and him to participate. However, Carrie balks at the thought of a sleeping bag on an air mattress in a tent. Not for her. She prefers a soft bed in a warm home. And if Henry wants to fish--yuck--he can do it without her. The plot turns dark when Rob scales a cliff and enters a cave, and Catherine is abducted.
Ms. Radine has taken her special formula and upped the suspense as the story spins toward an exciting finish. However, one thing that has not changed is the wonderful educational experience that she mixes into her writing. By the time you finish, you'll want to join Rob and Catherine in their explorations along the historic Buffalo River.
I give RIVER TO DIE FOR five stars while waiting for the next in Radine Trees Nehring's series.

Carrie and Henry are newlyweds. Rob, Carrie's son who is a college professor with an interest in American Indians, calls and invites them on a camping/fishing trip with Catherine. She is Henry's long-lost half sister that Rob is now dating. Henry is thrilled about the trip. Carrie is not. So she decides to stay home.

There are many caves with artifacts where they're camping by the Buffalo National River. Rob and Catherine set off to explore. They get separated and Catherine is kidnapped by thieving locals. Rob scales a cliff to a cave and blacks out. Henry gets very concerned when they don't return. Carrie does too when she finds out. So she and her friend set out to join in the search. Can they be found safe and sound? Will Carrie or Henry be in danger, too?

I love this series. Carrie and Henry are such likeable characters. I love the various settings of these books as well. The peripheral characters really add to the mix. There are always plenty of twists and turns before getting to the conclusion to keep me turning the pages!

I highly recommend this book!
