Shelley: Thanks for the info. I found out that the next Alpine book is, indeed, scheduled to be released in October, 2000. It's called The Alpine Menace. I can't wait! Any idea when a new B and B mystery will be published? I'll also try to check out the egroup site.

The Alpine Menace is the most recent book in the Alpine series and it is now out in paperback. It was an easy read. It's enjoyable and we learn more about Emma and some of her inner concerns....which may not turn out to be concerns at all!!

I'm but 13 years old and I enjoy Mary Daheim's books so!! The cover of Snow PLace to Die first caught my interest, and I couldn't stop reading these great books after that! Mrs. Daheim's witty style captured my reading eye and I can't wait for more mystery novels written by her. If anyone knows when the next release date is for a B and B book would they please let me know. Thank you so much!

I am really sorry to see the books coming out in hardcover first, now. I do not buy hardcovers, as they are too expensive, but hate having to wait a year or more for the paperback version to come out. Also, the local book stores do not generally carry the hardcover versions, especially authors who used to go directly to mass-market paperbacks.

Please go back to the paperback format.

Has anyone read Alpine Nemesis yet? Without giving away the plot, what did you think of the ending??

Look forward to reading "Obituary" - this series will be much different now without one of the characters. Don't know which series I enjoy more - the Bed & Breakfast ones are great also. Emma Lord & Judith both involved with men that have/had been absent from their lives for years & years. Their relationships overshadow the actual murders/mysteries, but the all the characters are so very interesting, if not always likeable. Mary Daheim is a very good writer with a marvelous sense of humor.

I just finished reading "Alpine Menace." While I basicly liked it, I was EXTREMELY disappointed in her use of negative and innaccurate words and depictions of adoptive parents. She used that term that every adoptive parent HATES "real parents." I am an adoptive parent. If I am not a "real parent" then what would you call all the sleepless nights,time spent expense and love? I could go on and on about that, but it would take too long. I may not be my childs birth or biological mother, but I am his real mother in every other sense of the word. I do not want to deny the role of his birth parents, I am very grateful for their giving my child life, but they are not the ones who are raising him, my husband and I are doing that. If I am not a real parent, then God is not truelly our parent either, because the Bible describes us as being adopted by God. Also her depiction of the adoptive parents shows a very shallow understanding of what family truelly is. Its more than just shared DNA, its a matter of the heart and spirit. Her depiction of the adoptive parents in the story was hardly flattering and then she threw in that bit at the end about Ronnies not being real family because his mom (I think) was adopted. That seemed like a major cop out to me, even if she did try to blunt it by havin "Ben" challenge her on that. I wanted to write her and tell her all this but I couldn't find an e.mail address. I am hoping somehow this will get back to her, that maybe she reads these occasionally and will think twice before she uses such terms again. Lori Lori Lori

I always enjoyed May Daheim's books. That mom of hers is a riot.

Lori, you make a lot of valid points. I suggest you email the author with your thoughts on this.
