As a longtime fan of Mary Daheim and of the Alpine Advocate series, I am delighted to accompany Emma Lord Dodge and her quirky cast of characters on her second trip through the alphabet.
After sixteen years of on again-off again quasi-romance and professional tug-of-war, Newspaper Publisher/Editor Emma Lord and Sheriff Milo Dodge have finally married and settled into some semblance of domestic bliss. Still bound by confidentiality, Milo and Emma cannot always share information with each othervon their various cases, but they manage to find a balance that works to serve the cause of justice and still satisfies the public need for information.
As a longtime Washington State resident, I enjoy the references to local and regional landmarks. As a "local," I am irritated by mispronounciations of some of the cities and locations of the stories.
Still, I'm looking forward to the next slice of Alpine pie in order to learn if Vida Runkel can, indeed, retire and keep her nose out of the Alpine Advocate's daily operations and actually let Emma be thevboss.
I didn’t enjoy the performance. It was choppy and at times annoying to listen to. The story had very little substance. So many references to I’m guessing her prior book and meals and I’m guessing the author was hungry most of the writing of the book. I have no interest in reading any more of her books. I’ll like my money back.
