FREE 5: The Alpine Christmas by Mary Daheim

Alpine Christmas (Emma Lord Mysteries)
Mass Market Paperback, 272 Pages, Published in 1993
ISBN-10: 0-345-38270-6

I like mystery. The author which brought me to mystery is John D. MacDonald. I used to find it very weird indeed to read a book not written in 3rd person singular. I feel like I'm missing too much. Then Travis McGee came into my life, and I got sucked in. Along came JA Jance's JP Beaumont, Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. I am so glad I ventured out of my romantic fiction world.

Book Description:
An Emma Lord Mystery.
Christmas in the town of Alpine means fresh snow, carolers, even a sleigh. But then the discovery of a woman's leg in the lake, along with that of another young woman's nude, half-frozen body, deflates everyone's high spirits. But as Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, follows up on the story, the bits and pieces of the young women who keep turning up start adding up to a murder scheme so sinister it may well land Emma on her own obituary page . . .


  1. I read mysteries a lot in high school but for some reason haven't much since then. I'd love to win this one!

  2. Oooh! I LOVE a good mystery! Agatha Christie is my favorite mystery writer. I'd love to win this!
