In the Shadow of the Glacier by Vicky Delaney

I only clicked DOWNLOAD on this book because it was set in the Kootenays of British Columbia where my family had a house for 30 years.

It’s not a strong book.

BUT the issues are relevant to the area. Should the town approve a park acknowledging the many American draft dodgers who moved there?

Should the massive Grizzly Resort go ahead, even at costs to the environment? No doubt it was based on the Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort controversy, ultimately cancelled in 2020.

Constable Molly Smith is a rookie cop in the mountain town of Trafalgar somewhere near Nelson.

I like Molly. But the resolution of the murder seemed dumb to me.

The reader of the audio book, Carrinngton MacDuffie, used quite a dreadful, unrealistic Canadian accent. Mispronounced some place names. That did turn me off the book, too.

In any case, I won’t be reading any more Molly Smith books.
