I love this series.   This is the fourth installment and it is just as good as the first.  There are always two stories running through these books.  First is the backstory for Beth and how she came to be in Benedict, Alaska.  As I like to think of it as the middle of nowhere.  Her family and an incident in her past have put her on the run, hiding her true identity from most.  And the second story is a stand alone mystery, which in this installment involves some missing folks come the end of winter.  In this part of Alaska, many people get snowed/iced in for the duration and the town goes on a “Death Walk”, where the town accounts for everyone that might be stuck at home.  A few people become unaccounted for and the search is on to find out why.

I like Beth and the other quirky townspeople and it is interesting to see how they live in this isolated town.  As Beth is hiding from her troubled past, she continues to connect to the townspeople and help solve murders and mysteries.  The books aren’t fast paced, but that is due to development of the characters and the setting.  I often feel like I am there in Benedict as I read along.

This book could be read as a stand alone, but I really think the whole series is a win and worth your time.
