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 ...

From the back cover:
Brilliant, dedicated, and driven, archaelologist Emma fielding finds things that have been lost for hundreds of years - and she's very good at it. A soon-to-be-tenured professor, she has recently unearthed evidence of a seventeeth century coastal Maine settlement that predates Jamestown, one of the most significant archaeological finds in years. But the dead body that accompanies it has embroiled Emma and her students in a different kind of exploration. With her reputation suddenly in jeopardy-due to the ruthless machinations of a digruntled rival-and a second suspicious death, heartbreakingly close to home, Emma must unearth a killer among the relics. But that means digging deep to get to dark secrets buried in the heart of the archaeological community-which, in turn, could bury Emma Fielding.

Every time the troll tries to keep Trigg from crossing the bridge to get to school, Trigg outwits him with a riddle--until the troll's mother decides that he too should go to school and get smart.

My grandson really enjoyed the riddles and I liked the fun way it teachs the importance of learning.
