Not even in Alpine, Washington, could the death of octogenarian Jack Froland be considered big news--except by his drinking buddies at Mugs Ahoy. But that suddenly changes when in the middle of his funeral, Jack's widow hysterically insists that he was murdered. Emma Lord, publisher of The Alpine Advocate, who is already investigating a threatening letter received by the town's beautiful blonde judge, now suspects she has two hot stories to unravel. But success will not come cheap. With a killer roaming the woods, it may cost Emma her life. . . .

Well-written, fast-paced, and as usual, good fun to read. Spoiler alert (sort of)...even though he is dead and gone, we still have to hear about how perfect Tom was and always will be. As much time spent on whining about Tom and her lost chance at happiness as there is on finding the murderer. It is now my policy to skip any paragraph in which the name Tom appears. the man was a selfish idiot and her delusional behavior about him almost ruins the series for me.
