Description
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 Street—and the gossip contains an air of menace. Meanwhile, Mary Daheim has written her best book yet.Praise for The Alpine Yeoman "Daheim injects enough wit and color to make her tale more entertaining than the standard small-town mystery."Kirkus Reviews "A core of familiar characters adds charm to all Daheim's 'alphabet' stories. Readers will find this new one similarly enjoyable."—Fredericksburg Free Lance–Star "A witty and wonderful story that will keep readers glued to the pages . . . This author should be given a pat on the back considering this is the twenty-fifth novel in the Emma Lord series . . . and each one just keeps getting better and better!"Suspense Magazine"This is the twenty-fifth Alpine mystery and Mary Daheim continues to delight readers with new twists and a wonderful and ever-evolving cast of eccentric characters. Highly recommended."—I Love a Mystery Praise for Mary Daheim and her Emma Lord mysteries "Always entertaining."The Seattle Times "Mary Daheim writes with wit, wisdom, and a big heart. I love her books."—Carolyn Hart "Daheim writes . . . with dry wit, a butter-smooth style, and obvious wicked enjoyment."The Oregonian "The characters are great, and the plots always attention-getting."—King Features Syndicate "Even the most seasoned mystery fans are caught off-guard by [Daheim's] clever plot twists."BookLoons "Witty one-liners and amusing characterizations."Publishers WeeklyFrom the Hardcover edition.
