Satisfying.ReadThe third in the Emma Lord series is as delightful as the other books in this series The characters who people Alpine are overdrawn, but lovable The setting in the Cascades is delightful In this book, different body parts keep showing up and giving the sheriff headaches and the journalist something to report. Not as good as her bed and breakfast books. I had a hard time finding this book, but it was worth the wait Suspenseful and full of atmosphere Read it twice through very quickly Terrific read. I am loving this series I love the characters and the plot Will continue the series. An Emma Lord MysteryChristmas in the town of Alpine means fresh snow, carolers, even a sleigh But then the discovery of a woman s leg in the lake, along with that of another young woman s nude, half frozen body, deflates everyone s high spirits But as Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, follows up on the story, the bits and pieces of the young women who keep turning up start adding up to a murder scheme so sinister it may well land Emma on her own obituary page
