    a great series

    I have been friends with Emma Lord of the Alpine mysteries for 23 books now, and have never been disappointed. The plots over the years have taken twists and turns that I didn't anticipate, but I feel like I know all the regular characters in the books, and I'm a part of their community. They are old friends, and I love reading about their latest escapades.

    everyone will relish the exciting Alpine Winter mystery

    During the holiday season of 2004 in Alpine, Washington Emma Lord, editor and publisher of the Alpine Advocate, misses her lover sheriff Milo Dodge who is in the Seattle area dealing with his ex wife and their daughter. Emma has her own family to contend with over the Christmas season as her son Father Adam and her brother Father Ben are coming to see her.

    Meanwhile human bones are found on the Skykomish River while some kids exploring a cave find human male remains. The townsfolk especially Roy Everson wonder whether the grisly river find is his mother Myrtle, who vanished sixteen years ago while berry picking and if the cave discovery is linked. At the same time Troy Laskey escapes from jail. His parents moved to Alpine to be near him, as he serves time for drug trafficking; his father is a reporter at the Advocate. Emma's best friend House & Home editor Vida Runkel has problems with her spoiled grandson. When Milo returns to town, they have to figure out who killed the person that the bones belonged to while dealing with Ben who disapproves of her relationship with Milo.

    The latest Emma Lord Cascades cozy (see The Alpine Vengeance) is an extended family affair highlighted with the knowledge that Milo will always be there for the love of his life. There is plenty happening to the townsfolk as this is a Christmas filled with death and attempted murder. Although newcomers will find it difficult to engage with the long running cast, everyone will relish the exciting Alpine Winter mystery.

    I read all sorts of mysteries .. from cozies to deep and complicated ... this is the first I have had to quit halfway through.  The writing just dragged.  And, as other reviews pointed out, there were far too many minor characters and names of people that made it difficult to follow.  The author could have eliminated 2/3, and it still would have been a very crowded room.  The characters talked in cliches and slap-stick one-liners ... straightforward dialog with the occasional zinger thrown in would have suited better.  This is the first by this author I have read, and although several have pointed out, not her best, it will, sadly, be my last.
