BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Daheim's The Alpine Vengeance .

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 was about to give up on this series, but now I will be able to finish. Emma finally admits that she has spent her whole adult life believing in the fairy tale of Tom (the father of her son). I was so sick of it I had sworn off the last few books. These do need to be read in order or you'll be lost with all the characters. Another death in the local low-class tavern--but this one was witnessed by so many people that it has to be open and shut, right? It is until Emma starts asking questions. But she gets distracted by Milo's reconciliation with Old Mulehide.

I picked this book off the shelf not knowing what to expect. I can't keep track of all the characters (and I'm in the first chapter). I think this is a book for another time.
