Alpine Obituary, the 15th entry in Mary Daheim's series featuring Alpine Advocate publisher Emma Lord and her cohorts-the forthright and all-knowing Vida, an Advocate editor, and Sheriff Milo, Emma's former lover-is far more sedate than her earlier offerings (Alpine Nemesis, etc.). Still distraught over the death of her lover, Emma mopes through the first half of the novel and even considers turning down a request by Marsha, the local judge, to look into a threatening letter she has received. But when Emma learns that Marsha and Jack Froland, an elderly resident who may have been murdered, are distantly related, she decides to find out if the two incidents are connected.

I love this series. I hate to think of when the author gets to 'Z'.

A fine addition to this series - the main character continues to grow

A little too much angst and soul searching for my taste, but necessary to the character development. Nice solid mystery with all the quirky characters you have come to love in the Alpine series. Not the best, but a perfectly good entry.

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.
