Publisher's Summary

Winter in Alpine should be quiet, but the town is humming. At the Alpine Advocate, editor Emma Lord and her staff are on deadline with a feature about the opening of RestHaven, a new rehab and mental health facility. Front Street is buzzing with gossip about Emma's recent engagement to Sheriff Milo Dodge. And now that fool Wayne Eriks has climbed an electric pole in the middle of a storm and got himself electrocuted. Sheriff Dodge doesn't buy the idea that Wayne's death is an accident. But how - and, more important, why - he died is only one of the conundrums that keep the sheriff and Emma working overtime.

After the Advocate's House & Home editor disappears, Milo and Emma suddenly have too many loose ends to solve before they can even think about tying the knot.

Love the Alpine Series

I have followed this series from the beginning and just love it. This was a really good book, one of the best and I was glad to see Emma finally finding some happiness. I hope the earlier books will be available soon on audible.

I enjoy this writer

The person reading really needs to know how to pronounce words and names of the cities she is talking about. I guess I'd you aren't from the Pacific Northwest it won't matter.
