Book Description

Sept. 1 2009 Thorndike Mystery
Picturesque Alpine is no longer the brawling logging town of yesteryear. So when a drunken fight at the Icicle Creek Tavern leaves a loner named Alvin De Muth dead, the residents feel as if they’ve gone back to the Bad Old Days. The inquiry into the incident should be a no-brainer, but since the witnesses were half-tanked at the time, Sheriff Milo Dodge is left with conflicting stories. But soon Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, has an even bigger story to report: a heartbreaking highway accident that leaves two people dead and one on life support. Rumors are flying: Are the two tragedies linked in some inexplicable way? Assisted by that human bulldozer Vida Runkel, the Advocate’s House & Home editor, Emma goes for the gold.

I usually like a good mystery and this book sounded like a good one to read. I haven't read it yet so don't know if that will be the case.

I was able to find two of the three books that my MIL wanted, here on Amazon. My review is not of the content of the book, but rather the process of finding it and getting it shipped in a timely manner. For those factors, I rate 5 stars. I did not read the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Daheim has a winner in this series of cosy mysteries. July 11 2013

The Alpine name refers to a weekly newspaper in a small town near Seattle. The series of books is in alphabetical order and you get to feel like your reading about people you know in this series of sometimes hilarious books. Mary Daheim is one of my favorite mystery writers and I hope she can continue the series when she soon ends the alphabet! The mysteries are great, the characters are lovable, or in some instances nasty killers. A great read for beach time as well as bedtime.
