More About The Alpine Quilt by Mary Daheim
 
 
 
Overview
Bestselling author Mary Daheim knows how to spin a mystery with a tight plot and captivatingly eccentric characters. And her vivid Pacific Northwest setting a character in itself has garnered her a plethora of devoted fans. Now her resourceful and resolute journalist Emma Lord has another mystery to solve and an even tougher deadline to meet.
Members of the Burl Creek Thimble Club, a quilting circle in small-town Alpine, Washington, are planning a fete to welcome back Genevieve Bayard, who left the group, and Alpine, decades ago. But Gen s homecoming is cut decidedly short when she dies at a dinner party. Emma Lord, owner and publisher of the local newspaper, The Alpine Advocate, immediately arrives on the scene to report the incident and sleuth her way to the truth.
Though it appears that Gen wasn t adored by everyone in the Alpine community, her untimely death still comes as a shock. To help solve the mystery, Emma turns to Vida Runkel, the Advocate s trusty House & Home editor. Such a notorious story would normally have Vida chomping at the bit, but to Emma s surprise Vida is hesitant, even downright unwilling to get involved.
The demise of Genevieve Bayard, however, isn t the only crime in Alpine. There has been a rash of burglaries, including at Emma s own cozy log cabin. Are the break-ins and the murder connected? As Emma digs, she uncovers a shocking scandal that may point the finger of guilt at one of her nearest and dearest . . . while single-handedly changing the history of Alpine itself.
