      • bioText: Mary Richardson Daheim started spinning stories before she could spell. Daheim has been a journalist, an editor, a public relations consultant, and a freelance writer, but fiction was always her medium of choice. In 1982, she launched a career that is now distinguished by more than sixty novels. In 2000, she won the Literary Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. In October 2008, she was inducted into the University of Washington's Communication Alumni Hall of Fame. Daheim lives in her hometown of Seattle and is a direct descendant of former residents of the real Alpine, which existed as a logging town from 1910 to 1929, when it was abandoned after the mill was closed. The Alpine/Emma Lord series has created interest in the site, which was named a Washington State ghost town in July 2011. An organization called the Alpine Advocates has been formed to preserve what remains of the town as a historic site.

        Daheim’s 23rd Emma Lord cozy (after 2011’s The Alpine Vengeance) will gratify longtime fans emotionally invested in the characters, but isn’t likely to attract new ones. As 2004 turns into 2005, Emma, the editor and publisher of the Alpine Advocate in Alpine, Wash., is gearing up for a visit from her brother, Ben, and her son, Adam, both priests. Meanwhile, the discovery of a human femur and two ankle bones by some kids renews speculation about the fate of Myrtle Everson, a grandmother who went out berry picking 16 years earlier and never returned. Complications arise after Troy Laskey, the son of one of Lord’s reporters, breaks out of jail, where he’s serving time for drug dealing, and a decomposing corpse turns up in a mountainside hole. As usual, the detecting tends to take a backseat to Lord’s love life, in particular her uncertain relationship with local sheriff Milo Dodge.

        November 15, 2011
        The Lords celebrate Christmas. Emma Lord's holiday season is getting off to a bumpy start. Her brother Ben, a priest, thinks she and her divorced love, Sheriff Milo Dodge, are heading down a sinful path. Her son Adam, another priest, is overdue from Alaska, where he's snowbound. Mitch Laskey, her employee at the weekly Advocate, needs time off to hunt for his son, who's just escaped from prison for the second time. Emma thinks things couldn't get much worse, but of course they can. When hikers find a body moldering in a cave on Mount Sawyer, Roy Everson, the local postmaster, is convinced it's his mama, Myrtle, who disappeared 16 years ago. The body turns out to be male, but that doesn't stop Roy from carrying on and Emma from digging away at the only clue to its identity, a Saint Augustine medal. The more Emma digs, the more she gets in the way of the sheriff, who knows that kissing her won't stop her, but can't resist anyway. The town gossips go wild. The Lord priests take differing views on the romance. Someone is so upset by Emma's snooping that her carport is set on fire. Even worse, she's attacked and almost killed before the sheriff steps in and rescues her, the perp is identified and Roy learns what really became of Myrtle. Daheim (The Alpine Vengeance, 2011, etc.) keeps this long-running series lively with generous helpings of small-town chatter, charm and middle-age romance.
