Bitter Alpine – Mary Daheim

Emma Lord Retutns, Book Two

Four of five stars given.

Emma Lord owns the town’s weekly newspaper.   She’s also married to Milo Dodge, the county Sheriff.  The combination is a natural for some amateur sleuthing under the guise of “investigative journalism”.   Much to the Sheriff’s chagrin. 

Daheim has a great story premise and some very intriguing, likeable characters.  I did find the background bits of the story somewhat difficult to follow however, and that made it fuzzy in places.   Overall, I’d still recommend this as a good read.  And I’d definitely be interested in further installments from this  husband and wife set of sleuths!
