I really enjoy the Emma Lord series and for the first time in my mystery reading career, am trying to read them in order (the ABC order of the titles is making that easy!) Emma is a newspaper owner and editor in quirky small-town Washington - I find I like my cozies taking place in small towns, and while Alpine isn't as quirky as Maggody, it has its unique charms. I enjoy her on/off romance with Tom Cavenaugh, her priest brother Ben and just about everything in this easy to read, light in tone (well, except for the dismembered body parts) mystery.

3rd Emma Lord mystery. Christmas is coming to Alpine, but not everyone is in a holiday spirit. First, a human leg is found in the river, then robberies and vandalism keep Sheriff Dodge busy. Emma as usual is asking a lot of questions. Good series!

I enjoyed both of Daheim's mystery series. Emma Lord, editor of the local newspaper, helps local law enforcement discover the identities and the killer of several young woman who seem to have a shared past history. Good read

The pretty little town of Alpine looks like a Christmas card...until a woman's leg is discovered in the lake, and another woman's nude, half-frozen body.

For Emma, the editor and publisher of "The Alpine Advocate", a story is a story...until she has a close encounter with a killer that may land her on her own obituary page...

Third in the Emma Lord mystery series and a fun read. From the back cover: The pretty little town of Alpine looks like a Christmas card: deep, fresh snow, carolers, Christmas trees, even a sleigh. Until the discovery of a woman's leg in the lake, along with that of another young woman's nude, half-frozen body, deflates everyone's high spirits, including Emma Lord's. But for Emma, the editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, a great story is still a great story. Until she has a close encounter with a killer that may very well land her on her own obituary page ...

This is the third in the Emma Lord series and, as always, I enjoyed the book. The sheriff catches more than he bargained for when he goes fishing - a human leg. Later Emma and her brother Ben find a body and too many people are acting strangely in town. The perpetrator is the least suspected among the bizarre. Good read.

Third in this delightful series in which a new female newspaper owner in a small town in the state of Washington struggles to fit in with all the weird & crazy citizens of the small town of Alpine.
The characters are delightfully nutty & there's always something going on.....mostly leading to a discovery of a murder by the owner of the newspaper, which doesn't please the local sheriff. This delightful series continues with most of the leading characters
in the successive books. You'll learn to love the characters & won't want to miss their growth over the series.It'll get you hooked. Great reading!!

It seemed appropriate to read a book with a Christmas background so I chose this one. Yes, it's about murder but also about a brother/sister relationship. So enjoyed how Emma and her brother, Ben, related to each other. Their conversations and their interactions demonstrate so well how two close siblings can be.

It all begins with a leg being found in the river by a fisherman. Gruesome? Yeah, it is but that's only the beginning. The next finding is a complete body. Now there appears to be two murders but who are they? Male or female? An arm is discovered in the river. Many people suspect the strange young man who lives in a cabin in the woods until his cabin burns down fortunately without him in it. What is going on?

The bodies are identified as women who were roommates. How did they get to Alpine? They seem to have a connection with the young wife of a local young man as well as other women who went to private schools.

This is a good read with a plot that leads the reader about until the author begins giving clues about an unexpected individual who is strong and very organized. Close the climax I had determined who the murderer was but not why the murders were committed. Yes, this is a quick and enjoyable mystery. Try it!
