Format: Paperback
Not all tree huggers fit into the stereotype of the peaceful environmentalist. "Tree Huggers" follows Kate, a fresh reporter who follows the story of an environmental terrorist group and their alleged arson. She covers the trial of the man who is directly charged, but soon finds that what the public believes may not be the truth, and that the truth is far more deadly than the accepted fiction. A gripping mystery and thriller, "Tree Huggers" is a must for mystery fans everywhere and libraries catering to them.

Format: Paperback
After her divorce, Kate Dennison puts her old journalism degree to use on her new job as a reporter on Wilmington's Winslow Beach Beacon. She expects to cover the usual fodder for this kind of local publication (a "rinky-dink newspaper in some Southern backwater"), school pageants and science fairs and town council meetings. But on her first day at the office there's a big news story: a McMansion on the coast burns to the ground with two people trapped inside. The arson cum murder is thought to be the work of an extremist environmental group whose modus operandi is to discourage building in environmentally fragile areas by destroying property. Kate's coverage of the case lands her in trouble with some of the paper's readers, some of whom aren't above violent demonstrations of their displeasure. And Kate's problems at work bleed into her home life as well, ultimately threatening her relationship with her seven-year-old daughter Molly.

The ending of Tree Huggers doesn't pack a very big surprise. We're not shocked by the identity or tactics of the bad guy when he's finally revealed. But the book is by no means lacking in tension: Nichols does a great job of making us worry about the welfare of Kate's daughter. Her depiction of the relationship between mother and daughter struck me as very true-to-life. Tree Huggers is a good light read that introduces a likable protagonist and a strong cast of supporting characters--Kate's ex-husband and daughter and her colleagues at the paper, an old flame turned new love interest. I don't know if the author has plans for a sequel, but I hope she does: I'd be more than happy to revisit Kate and the goings-on at the Winslow Beach Beacon in subsequent installments.

Format: Paperback
"Tree Huggers," by Judy Nichols (2008), a mystery, makes very good use of its setting, thriving, but little-known seaport Wilmington, North Carolina, and its satellite beach communities.

Nichols, herself, now a local resident, a former working journalist in her home state of Ohio, and a skillful writer, gives us intrepid girl reporter Kate Dennison. First day on the job, local paper: someone sets fire to a just-built, not yet sold McMansion on fictional Winslow Beach (it smells a lot like nearby Wrightsville Beach). Two men about town, well-known and liked, are killed. Arson and murder: it's a big story, especially for a small local paper. Is it another case of greedy developers and tree hugging environmentalists at loggerheads? (This region's actual environmentalists, in fact, are particularly active in defense of the beachy breeding grounds of the loggerhead turtles.)

At any rate, the fire appears to have been the work of a group of environmental extremists, and a young man of the town is charged with the crime. Kate investigates, as she bounces off her daughter Molly, her ex-husband Keith, and her once - and future - boyfriend, Bryan. Nichols' story moves fast, and smoothly, and the writing is fine. (She has just come to speak to our book club --we had just polished off this book-- and she was fun, vivacious and lively.)

However, Nichols has made some misjudgments in this book, perhaps due to her inexperience as an author. There are a couple of embarrassingly unfortunate chapters that an experienced editor really should have cut. And we are definitely in chick lit lite country here. The victims of the piece die offstage, in a strangely bloodless, unconvincing way.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. It's a good story with a nice variety of characters. Ms. Nichols has a real flair for dialogue, and her female protagonist, Kate Dennison, is wholly believeable as a young single mother trying to maintain her balance while handling parental responsibilities and a new, unexpectedly dangerous job. I only wish the book had been somewhat longer, with more description and maybe a slightly more leisurely pace. However, it is fine as it is. Not to wish Nichols a lifetime of writing about the same character over and over, I hope she will give us at least one more Kate Dennison book so we know how the romance is working out.
