Winter is approaching in Cordova, Alaska and Charlotte has settled to spend winter there. She is house sitting for friends and working as a reporter and helping print the paper. An explosion and fire occur at the hardware store, tho owner, Lyle Fiske is found in the ruins. Of course, Charlotte’s curiosity takes over and she helps in the case. A piece about prohibition angers the Women’s League. More on information on Charlotte’s and sheriff deputy backgrounds emerge. The changes that place will keep you reading. I recommend this book. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
