    I enjoyed the Alpine Hero which is the eighth book in the Emma Lord Mystery series At times when I am reading other books I will wonder what Emma Lord and her employees friends are up to now It is always good to return to Alpine Washington to visit with the characters again This time there was a murder at a beauty salon Emma came upon the body in the facial room Vida Runkel and Emma team up to solve the crime There is always some humor in their relationship Milo Dodge who is the sheriff i I enjoyed the Alpine Hero which is the eighth book in the Emma Lord Mystery series At times when I am reading other books I will wonder what Emma Lord and her employees friends are up to now It is always good to return to Alpine Washington to visit with the characters again This time there was a murder at a beauty salon Emma came upon the body in the facial room Vida Runkel and Emma team up to solve the crime There is always some humor in their relationship Milo Dodge who is the sheriff is a friend of Emma s and is always a main part of the story This book featured mainly Emma, Vida and Dodge Leo and Carla only played a side role in this book Ginny was on her honeymoon.The mystery was quite good I didn t have it all figured out until the author disclosed it There were red herrings and a few twists However, the reason I really enjoy this series is the characters They have become very familiar They aren t perfect but that makes them seem human They do evolve and change A new person was introduced in the book and she seemed to get along well with Emma I hope she is featured in future books

    this is one of my favorites in the series so far, purely in terms of the mystery I had a sense of what was going on but couldn t quite pin down the fine details of the deception briefly, Emma s haircut is delayed when someone is killed in the salon Vida takes over the story, so Emma s thoughts throughout the narrative are mostly about her personal life I learned that Vida is not an animal person, and she was just kind of generally written with less warmth humor in this book She s usually on this is one of my favorites in the series so far, purely in terms of the mystery I had a sense of what was going on but couldn t quite pin down the fine details of the deception briefly, Emma s haircut is delayed when someone is killed in the salon Vida takes over the story, so Emma s thoughts throughout the narrative are mostly about her personal life I learned that Vida is not an animal person, and she was just kind of generally written with less warmth humor in this book She s usually one of my favorites Emma still has no spine I like the little progressions with background characters Ginny s marriage, Adam s glacial progress toward a job and maturity We re introduced to a new character, Paula, whom I hope will continue to appear in future books I like series where you can become familiar with the characters and they change over time, so that s something I especially enjoy about this series I think I will get all the way through the alphabet

    Set in the small town of Alpine, Washington, the editor of the local paper founds a murder victim in the facial room of Stella s Styling Salon Was the woman the intended victim or was her sister in law whose appointment she took suppose to be the victim Recommend you read this series in order.

    I found this one just a bit slow

    This date stunk I was going to muscle through it for my Reading Challenge but there are better fish to fry.Zero character development, loose stereotypes, just plain flat It s like they made one character handicapped because they needed something interesting happening Yuck I recommend it for people that don t want to think and don t mind details.

  9. Susan Susan says:

    This series of cozy mysteries stars Emma Lord who is an editor at a small town newspaper in the state of Washington I ve tried at least one other in the series and find that the characters just don t grab me and there are way too many side stories that detract from solving the mystery.

    I got annoyed at the way Emma Lord, editor and publisher of the Alpine newspaper, is cowed by her reporter Vida and also a younger staff member There were too many gossipy details Noin this series for me.
