Set to Jet
By: Gwen Fifield
Book: Live Free or Die
Author: Jessie Crockett
Series: The Granite State Mysteries
I've always wanted to travel but between my kids, my job at the post office and my work on the volunteer fire department, I never seem to have enough time to get to the grocer, let alone around the globe. Maybe that's why I was so delighted to hear that my exploits in tiny Winslow Falls, NH are going to be shared in Germany as well as here at home in New Hampshire.
That's right, as of November 25, the goings on here in the village will be translated into German. I couldn't be happier about it. I love sauerkraut, bratwurst and Grimm's' Fairy Tales. You can imagine my delight that they've even put someone who looks like me on the front cover of the book. Not that I'd be caught dead heading for a fire with my legs unprotected. And it goes without saying that if I was stomping around in the snow I wouldn't be doing it in a pair of expensive heels I borrowed from my sister. I wouldn't attempt to cross the dining room floor in those things, let alone a frozen field.
Still, I am feeling flattered and over the moon. If enough people in Germany enjoy reading about the troubles we've had with arson and theft maybe I'll finally find the time to make trip over there. But I'll be sure to pack something sensible to wear.
Readers, do you like to travel? Do you speak German? Where would you go if you had the time for an international vacation?
