Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest installment in the Jenny Cain series finds the foundation director enmeshed in small-town politics as an environmental controversy leads to murder.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Pickard's latest features her popular heroine, Jenny Cain, whose skill at running small-town foundations is matched only by her abilities as an amateur sleuth. The ever-agile Jenny is currently juggling the first ever Port Frederick Fall Festival and the request of her friend Nellie Kennedy, who wants help in getting rid of "God's Highway," a controversial hiking/bike path. Lately, a series of fatal accidents on the path has caused the town to look at closing it, a move environmentalists, hikers, and bikers vehemently oppose. A mysterious fire, strange goings-on in the town, and murder prove almost too much for the intrepid Jenny--especially after she's assaulted, threatened, run down, and reviled--but with the help of her policeman husband, Geof, and his adopted son, David, she unravels the complicated, intertwined assortment of mysteries and makes sure the Port Frederick Fall Festival is a roaring success. A nicely paced, nicely plotted mystery that makes a perfect read for a chilly fall evening. Emily Melton

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep me up all night!! October 1, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most mysteries are pretty dull, if you ignore the wrong piece of trivia you are lost. This multi-layered mystery is excellent as it blends Jenny Cain's personal and businesses affairs into a compelling mystery that kept me guessing to the end. I was more enthralled by the complex backgrounds for her small town characters, than the mystery itself

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mystery series I've read!!! August 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love the Jenny Cain series. I have read all of them and each one gets better as you go along. The only bad thing that I can say is that it looks as if Nancy Pickard is no longer writing books in this series. I'm hoping she will come out with a new Jenny Cain book. I can't say enough about these books. The plots are great. Please Nancy write more!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intricate Plotting and Psychological Depth July 17, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Jenny Cain has her hands full as she organizes Port Frederick's Fall Festival and attempts to deal with issues surrounding the controversial "God's Highway" bike/hiking trail that environmentalists and others don't want to see go. It seems a lot of people have an ax to grind in this town. Christians strongly oppose the festival's Halloween component and someone has set fire to a local landmark, killing an environmental protester. Death and violence escalate, including an assault on Jenny, prompting her and her police officer husband, Geof, to find the killer.

Twilight is an intricately plotted novel with a lot of depth as author Nancy Pickard incorporates Jenny's personal life into the story. This is the type of amateur sleuth novel I like to read. The plot and subplots blend well to make an intriguing story with a strong psychological and even compassionate component. For me, good novels create multi-layered complex characters caught in horrible conflict. The story has heart and compassion, aspects that Nancy Pickard portrays so well that I plan to read all of her Jenny Cain mysteries.
