    1. Jeanne Matthews was born and raised in Georgia She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Journalism and has worked as a copywriter, a high school English and Drama teacher, and a paralegal She currently lives in Renton, Washington with her husband, who is a law professor, and a West Highland terrier, who is a prima donna.

    2. The Doomsday Vault, polar bears, never-ending night, and the snarkiest, smartest woman you'll ever meet. Oh, yeah, and a kick-ass mystery to boot. Questions?

    3. I am a fan of Jeanne Matthews' books, and this one doesn't disappoint -- superb writing, wit, well drawn characters, fleshed out setting and an intriguing plot. Recommend this book to all mystery readers.

    4. I must admit this book was somewhat of a yawner. I learned more about Norway myths and gods than anything.

    5. A nice mystery set in an unusual location, Longyearbyen in the far north of Norway. I had to go and research to see if it is a real place and if there was in fact an international seed bank there. Both are real, almost like something out of science fiction. So the setting for this mystery involves three US politicians going to Longyearbyen to deposit seeds from their respective states in the international seed vault. The politicians are portrayed as greedy and selfish, in perhaps a little of a c [...]

    6. This mystery book is quite different than most of the other mysteries I've read. It brings in politics, Norwegian folklore, environmental issues, and teaches you a bit of Norwegian words along the way. Out of the many mystery books I've read, I've never come across the combination of these topics. I am not usually all that interested in political matters but without it in this book, it wouldn't be quite as good. I'm definitely glad that I was given the opportunity to read it.I enjoyed the wide r [...]

    7. It's a extremely lightweight, forgettable mystery. It reminds me of a one-hour soap opera for TV where plots happen so fast, with twists and turns (if you can call it that) be over and done with in a few sentences, that you would have wondered what has just happened when this very short book is over. Characters and plots development are almost non-existent. Laughable plots and a busy-body character that I doubt if even the Norwegians up in the arctic north (no offence) would have taken her serio [...]

    8. I liked the tie-ins to Norse Mythology and Norwegian culture, but this book was so similar to so many books that have come before it. You were kept guessing about who the culprit was, but it seemed like the author hadn't even made up her mind. It's not difficult to keep your reader guessing if you keep feeding them extraneous details hinting at different people as guilty.But the romance? It felt like it was forced in there in a sorry attempt to amp up the story so that readers might feel more co [...]

    9. In Matthews’ mystery novel, ethno botanist Dinah Pelerin is on her way to Norway hoping that work and a trip afar will help her regroup after a romance gone wrong. Serving as part of the United States delegation, her duty is to insure the preservation of precious Hawaiian heirloom seeds in a doomsday vault. Accompanying her is a group of profit-driven senators and money-hungry executives with agendas all their own that include a mythical Norse battle. When a reporter is found murdered, a senat [...]

    10. Have you ever heard of Longyearbyen? I had not either. It is always interesting to read about a place that you did not know existed. It was interesting having Norway and the Norwegian people featured in the story.Enjoyable murder mystery in a unique setting makes for a good read. Constant darkness and cold are mentioned quite often but the mood is not captured in any way. The main character Dinah is not one that you warm up to in any great hurry. But the combination of the story involving preser [...]

    11. This was the first murder mystery book I've read in a really long time, and I honestly enjoyed it much more than anticipated. Having won it from First-reads, I didn't really know what to expect as I read it. The "twist" and revealing of the murderer were well written and exciting, as well as Dinah's regular brushes with death. I was disappointed, however, with several scenes which didn't progress the plot or reveal information about the crimes. Some events in the story seemed to fill pages more [...]

    12. Dinah Pelerin, working in Hawaii as an ethnobotanist, is sent on a junket to northern Norway--in December! Her boss is no fool--she'll stay where it's nice and warm. Dinah finds herself on a private jet with several US Senators and an industrialist whose firm manufactures genetically modified seeds. When a man who protests the visit is found murdered, her whole party falls under suspicion. A second murder follows, and Dinah is in the thick of things, along with a Norwegian policeman.

    13. Dinah has gone to the fartherest north village in Norway for a seed savers presentation attended by three senators, one a presidential candidate as well as the head of a genetic seed company. In the midst of the cold Dinah learns lots of information about genetic engineered seed mutation as she becomes involved with a coverup, two murders and her life is at risk.A good Norwegian mystery with man an Ameican twist.

    14. I won't be writing a long review on this one, as I don't remember much. ):I enjoyed it, but I wasn't addicted. I guess that's mostly due to the genre, because I'm a bigger fan of YA/New Adult. If it sounds good to you, go for it! ACTUAL RATING: 3.5 starsI won a free (signed) copy of this from the author through / First Reads.

    15. Another good segment in the Dinah Pellerin series. I liked the Norse mythology that was included. I also didn't figure out the killer until Dinah did, so I liked that. The only thing that I didn't like was the amount of suspects. I had a bit of a hard time keeping them straight.

    16. to be more fair, I think I'd give 3.5. I've enjoyed the other two very much, and I can't say there was anything about the writing in this story that was below par. I think I just didn't personally care for the storyline as much in this case.

    17. I'm not usually a fan of the average-woman-solves-a-crime books but this one partially changed my mind. If you think Monsanto is an evil company then you should read this book - it definitely adds an extra star to the rating ;)

    18. I recommend "reading" the Dinah Pellerin novels in audio form. The plethora of accents is just too delicious to do in my head. Dinah's southern cadences are the best.

    19. Interesting book, I liked the way the author introduced Norse myths into the story. From the description of the setting it is not anywhere I want to visito cold!
