Two months after an unlucky snowboarder vanished on the slopes above Alpine, his disappearance is old copy. Emma Lord, publisher of the Alpine Advocate, is back to writing about graduations and the latest outbreak of chicken pox-until the town's oldest family feud flares up, leaving three people dead, their bodies stowed in a meat freezer. The startling discovery of a fourth body sharing the victims' chilly repose launches Emma on the story of a lifetime. But as she races to scoop the upstart radio station with the late-breaking news, Emma unwittingly uncovers a shocking conspiracy that will change her life forever. . . .

This is one of my favorite light reading series. Daheim is a very good writer whose abilities grow with each book. Other than I have gotten a bit bored of Emma Lord mooning over Tom the cad, this was an excellent story. Emma has her worst fight ever with Vida, Milo is having another less than perfect romance with a woman who will never replace Emma, and the town's nuts and wackos are still trying to outdo their last escapades. This is classified as "regional fiction" but the stories are far more--Daheim is the Agatha Christie of the USA.
