Detective Sarah Garland is happy that a harsh winter in Alaska has ended and spring has arrived. The joy of spring, she hopes, will take away the difficult battles she faced during the winter months. What could go wrong with fresh, warm air dancing around her small town, waking up sleeping animals and beautiful flowers? Surely all of the criminals would remain frozen in th Detective Sarah Garland is happy that a harsh winter in Alaska has ended and spring has arrived. The joy of spring, she hopes, will take away the difficult battles she faced during the winter months. What could go wrong with fresh, warm air dancing around her small town, waking up sleeping animals and beautiful flowers? Surely all of the criminals would remain frozen in the winter, right, allowing spring to sing and hope to rinse the cold off itself and begin anew. But while shopping for clothes at the local merchant store with her best friend Amanda, Sarah is approached by Andrew, the new Chief of Police, and is told a hunter was found dead on an old hiking trail north of town. The hunter, it seems, died of exposure to the elements and no foul was suspected. Sarah is simply asked to help deal with the hunter's family who was on their way up to Alaska from Los Angeles. She agrees, thinking that the case would be simple to manage. But when hidden answers begin to surface, Sarah is soon thrust into a dangerous case filled with a deadly enemy determined to destroy the lives of two innocent people. Will Sarah be able to put back on her detective hat and outwit and clever adversary, or will she become victim to a poison plot that involves murder for power?

    Having read these books in order, I have to agree with some of the comments about errors that should have been caught. Amanda's husband has a new name? He was Jack in the first four books....now he's Simon? Numerous typos that the editorial process should have addressed? While I've enjoyed the storylines in this series, I do question some of the premises....Two women in a small Alaska town, successfully solving mysteries (that the local law enforcement couldn't do with out their guidance) even t Having read these books in order, I have to agree with some of the comments about errors that should have been caught.

While I've enjoyed the storylines in this series, I do question some of the premises....Two women in a small Alaska town, successfully solving mysteries (that the local law enforcement couldn't do with out their guidance) even though one has no investigation/police experience? Why on earth do they always wear dresses (hiking through the woods, in the rain, snow and cold)? The books are easy reading, but reader, be aware that they are not the best written or best edited books on the shelf.

    Another exciting, sometimes wacky but never a dull moment installment in this series. This time, Conrad is down in New York so when an elderly man is found dead, presumably frozen when hunting and found now spring is here, Sarah has to be acting detective for the police force. Of course she's going to have her BFF Amanda help her out. Andrew gets a more prominent role in this book since Conrad is gone for most of it. The old man's family that came from Los Angeles seems like a train wreck waiting Another exciting, sometimes wacky but never a dull moment installment in this series. This time, Conrad is down in New York so when an elderly man is found dead, presumably frozen when hunting and found now spring is here, Sarah has to be acting detective for the police force. Of course she's going to have her BFF Amanda help her out. Andrew gets a more prominent role in this book since Conrad is gone for most of it. The old man's family that came from Los Angeles seems like a train wreck waiting to happen, or at least his daughter and very young wife are. Andrew and Amanda get to laughing so hard over the daughter looking like a circus act--that was one of the funniest parts of the book. Since the family was from LA, Sarah had already conferred with her long time friend and mentor, Pete, from her old police department and knew basically what to expect from this very dysfunctional family. The rest held my interest as Sarah used her cop's instincts and training to set a trap for the criminals. A couple of glaring editorial errors stood out. This book started referring to Amanda's husband as Simon and I could have sworn in the previous books his name was Jack. Then Teresa was referred to a lot more than once as Milton's wife when she was in fact, Chet's wife. Small errors and by context I knew what was going on. Hopefully future editions might receive some corrections. One more to go and I'll be caught up!

    A body is found off an old hunting trail north of Snow Fall, Alaska, the victim appears to have died exposure. Alaska law requires an autopsy of a death and the Hopski family is not going to change this protocol. Detective Sarah Garland senses something is wrong and she is out to find out what really happened to Mr. Hopski.

    A family divided by greed Wonderful series that doesn't disappoint with this latest book. A body found on the trail is that of a wealthy businessman. Was it natural or is there something more sinister at stake. A family at war, a vast fortune at stake and more lies then anyone can swallow. Okay we all know who the "baddie" is but the plot will keep you reading until the end to find out how everything is resolved. The characters are all full and vivid and the descriptions are so good that you can A family divided by greed Wonderful series that doesn't disappoint with this latest book.

    Good addition! I really like this book. I think it was a good story. It wasn’t scary or necessarily upsetting but it really showed the bond of friendship and family. I’m really enjoying this series quite a bit. I love it the books are short and I can read them in between all of my work nonsense. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to have a job but technology just needs to get it self together. I strongly recommend a series.

    Wow! What a wonderful read Wow! What a wonderful read I hope this wasn't the end of your series, because it was getting good and your ending in this book had touched my heart when you wrote, "a fawn came out of the woods and smelled the red rose, that Amanda placed on Mr. Hopski's grave, then layed down.

    Spring Into Murder (Alaska Cozy Mystery Book) By Wendy Meadows) Wendy did a much better job developing the plot in this book. I think she should should dress in omg warm pants to wear their cozy warm sweaters with. I would like to see Amanda's husbands character develop more in future stories. Who line's maybe they already have. Spring Into Murder (Alaska Cozy Mystery Book) By Wendy Meadows) Wendy did a much better job developing the plot in this book.

    Awesome Read This is an amazing story that pits good against. bad, and shows how greed makes monsters of humans. Sarah, Andrew and Amanda show strength as they work to overcome evil. This is an excellent read that will keep the reader turning the pages

    Changes, and not good ones More mistakes in this than the previous books. Chet and Milton's names are mixed up quite a few times, when that should have been an obvious catch. Also a loot of mentions of god that I don't recall in the other books, which I find off putting. Changes, and not good ones More mistakes in this than the previous books.

    I've read all the books in this series. I really enjoyed them all. The characters are fun, the friendship between Sarah and Amanda is a nice touch. Makes you want to move to Alaska. I like how you don't know right away who is the culprit. I've read all the books in this series. I really enjoyed them all.

    Not bad Better than the book before it. I liked Milton & Chet. It was missing Conrad & that messed with the flow of the book. Not much mystery in it but the writer kind of didn't try to hide anything either. I liked it. Not bad Better than the book before it. I liked Milton & Chet.

    Crazy Alaskan Murder Mystery I really like these books. They're easy to read, and the stories aren't too far fetched like some cozy mysteries, but there's a little too much 'God is good, God is great' for my liking. I'll continue to read them though.
