It's a quiet morning at the Advocate until the mail brings shocking news: a formal obituary for Alpiner Elmer Nystrom. As far as anyone knows, Elmer is alive and well. But he hasn't turned up for work, so Emma and her unstoppable House & Home editor, Vida Runkel, rush to the Nystrom home, where they find Elmer's lifeless body in the henhouse, half buried under straw. Not only has he been murdered, but his obituary had been mailed before he died. Though Elmer was well liked by everyone, the same cannot be said of his standoffish wife or his son, the town's new orthodontist. With Sheriff Milo Dodge in the hospital, it's up to Emma and Vida to get to the bottom of the tragedy. Alpiners love scandal, and with Elmer's murder, they'll get their fill.

Very disappointing. Not up to her usual standards. The ending was a let down and then there was the added super short chapter that made no sense. (As an English professor, I feel I should have been able to grasp some metaphorical or philosophical meaning to the addendum, but after reading it twice and pondering for three days, I have given up.)
