"Norm Spitzig’s new novel, Soul on Nice, follows Esther, the likable, quirky waitress at Old Bunbury Golf Links and Reading Club. Readers of Private Clubs in America and Around the World and Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury, two books Spitzig has written under the pseudonym Clive Endive Ogive IV, will recognize Esther as the protagonist of those works.
"Soul on Nice is a truly international adventure, opening with Esther sipping Chardonnay on a plane bound for beautiful New Zealand. Esther, an aging waitress and fixture at Old Bunbury, is heading to her favorite country as a reward for her impressive detective work, having solved a murder (see Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury) at the club. So, Bunbury’s sister club will host the sharp-minded sleuth and honor her in the lavish style of private clubs. However, a colossal battle of good and evil looms in Esther’s future, promising excitement of an altogether different kind to shade Esther’s journeys.
"Soul On Ice is sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers. Lovers of clever mysteries will be entranced by Esther’s latest challenge, while lovers of the travelogue will appreciate the detailed descriptions of one of the world’s most beautiful countries. All readers with a sense of humor can’t help but be drawn in by Esther’s sassy, yet kindhearted, knowledge of all the goings-on at Old Bunbury for the past half century. Finally, readers who are interested in the madcap world of private golf clubs will be delighted by Spitzig’s accurate portrayal."

The book is the journey of Esther., and a look into the workings of private clubs She waitresses at Old Bunbury Golf Links and Reading Club. We're talking MONEY and a lot of "I'm better than you" attitudes. Esther has been at Old Bunbury for quite a few years.

The trip is her reward for solving a murder at Old Bunbury. Bunbury's sister club is hosting the waitress turned detective, in the posh style of private clubs. But that is not the end of Esther's journeys, A battle between the good and bad waits in Esther's future.
This book may appeal to readers of mysteries, travel , private golf clubs and humor. The author wrote wonderful descriptions of New Zealand. You can almost picture the beautiful scenery.
You can't help but smile at the quirky and all knowing Esther. She seems to know every little happening at Old Bunbury. Esther reminded me of a sweet and kind grandmotherly type. The book is very humorous and yet entertaining. I would have enjoyed it more without all the politics. I'm sure the golfers and private clubbers out there will enjoy the book. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
I would give this book 3 GOLF CLUBS.
I was given a complimentary copy of SOUL ON NICE from the author Norm Spitzig for my uncompensated opinion.
Life is never dull for Esther, Old Bunbury Golf Links & Reading Club's waitress-extraordinaire, who knows everything that goes on at the club. In this new tale featuring the continuing adventures of Clive and Esther, she is traveling to New Zealand to visit the Kaikoura Whaling & Sailing Club - thanks to the Old Bunbury board of directors as a reward for solving a hideous murder -- when she runs into an old enemy. It's a classic tale of good versus evil as well as a travelogue (complete with photos) and political satire with dashes of humor thrown in for good measure.
"Soul on Nice: Esther's Good-Hearted Adventures in New Zealand and the United States" features unexpected twists and turns when Hamish, the murderer Esther helped put away, breaks out of jail, leaves a note promising to get revenge on Esther - and nobody knows where he is.
