THE ALPINE QUILT - MARY DAHEIM

Genevieve Bayard returns to Alpine, a small Washington town, to have a reunion with the members of the Burl Creek Thimble Club.  The ladies were all enjoying themselves until something terrible happened.  Genevieve died at the dinner party.  It seems there was poison in something she ate.  Who would want to murder Genevieve?  Well, everyone in the community didn't exactly love her but to go to this extreme is unbelievable.

Emma Lord, owner and publisher of the local newspaper, The Alpine Advocate, arrives at the crime scene and begins to investigate what happened.  Emma discovers some interesting things along the way.

Emma tried to get Vida Runkel, the Advocate's House & Home editor, to help her.  However, for some reason, Vida was hesitant to get involved. 

In addition, a string of burglaries was taking place in the town.  Emma's house was among the houses hit.

Is Emma able to solve this case?

Mary Daheim has written an exciting mystery.  She always does a good job of creating unique characters.  We can always count on having a few laughs in the author's novels.  This is a fun mystery book to read and one that you should add to your reading list.
