"Mary Daheim's bestselling novels, set in Alpine, a picturesque village tucked away in the Cascade Mountains, have charmed a generation of mystery lovers with suspenseful tales of the peril that bubbles up from below the serene surface of small-town life. An ill wind blows through Alpine, but Advocate publisher Emma Lord and Sheriff Milo Dodge seem immune to the prevailing angst. The newlyweds' domestic idyll is most definitely over when a dead man is discovered near the fish hatchery and nobody has a clue as to his identity. Vida Runkel may have insight, but Emma's redoubtable House & Home editor is mad at the world and saying little. Moreover, whispers of scandal travel through the quaint streets when some high school girls mysteriously take a walk on the wild side. And then Milo's dedicated deputy, Sam Heppner, a true yeoman, suddenly goes AWOL. What's happening in Alpine? If Milo knows, he's not telling Emma. And Emma's again headed for trouble when she starts snooping. The situation grows even more fraught when a shocking link is revealed between the mystery corpse and one of Alpine's own, unearthing a long-buried dark secret. Tongues are wagging on Front St

Vida may have to leave the Advocate! Emma cannot save their friendship when Vida blames Milo for all her woes, and is destroying morale at the paper. Leo has one foot out the door, and with her two favorite and most essential employees abdication, Emma may not be able to keep the Advocate afloat. With only one book left, doom and gloom overshadow Emma and Milo's newly-wedded bliss.

Getting to the end of a good series, this one is a bit heavy on the catching up with past events details, but the mystery gets Emma and Dwight to put what they know together in order to solve it. The solution is a big surprise. Several side issues keep enough red herrings in play to confuse things.

Another great book in the Emma Lord series. I can't wait for the next book to come out and find out what happens next in Alpine. I feel like the characters are close friends.
