Another treasure in the delightful series in which a new female newspaper owner in a small town in the state of Washington struggles to fit in.
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.Great reading!

In this 4th Emma Lord book, the bigotry of a small town is revealed when a young black woman moves into Alpine. Besides getting hate mail and racist letters to the Advocate (Emma's newspaper), strange black men come into town and get themselves shot dead. Milo stubbornly suspects Marilynn (the newcomer) which leaves Emma and Vida to do the investigation. Whenever, I read the Emma Lord books, I get the feeling that Vida really runs the newspaper that Emma owns. :) However, in this book, I was introduced to more citizens of the fictional mountain town of Alpine. I got a much better feel of the place too. I so enjoy this series and started reading it several years ago but got out of order unfortunately. I recommend starting at the beginning! The perpetrator of the crimes really surprised me and I love that.

This series of a small Washington state newspaper evidently will go from A to Z before it ends. The editor and owner, Emma Lord, is a single mom with a grown son who changes colleges and majors as often as changing socks. Emma's staff is a mix of some great characters and the small mountain town setting is wonderful as are the townspeople. Emma has a long time love, but the sheriff would like to be closer to her. The mysteries are very original. One of my very favorite series and authors.
