But for Cathy Lindsay, the week of relaxation doesn’t work out as planned when she is gunned down by a sniper on the hiking trail high above town, her small dog the only witness.
Cathy Lindsay - a middle-aged, middle-class, small-town resident, high school English teacher, and married mother of two - is an unlikely candidate for a murderous ambush. As Sergeant John Winters begins his investigation, he finds himself frustrated at every turn. Why would anyone want to kill Cathy? She was a respected teacher in an apparently solid marriage and living a quiet life. Winters, with the help of young Constable Molly Smith, digs deep into the Lindsays’ marriage and friendships, searching for a suspect and motive, but one thought continually arises in his mind: Is it possible this was a random killing or a case of mistaken identity? If so, who did it? And who in this small, close-knit community might be next?
Meanwhile, on the double-black-diamond runs of the Blue Sky resort, Molly Smith meets a handsome, charming man, one who’s as good a skier as she is, and she realizes it’s time to make some serious decisions about the direction of her life - both personal and professional.

This is a great series with well developed characters and realistic plots and I'm glad I finally noticed it.

An engaging mystery with lots of local colour
This is a good mystery with well-developed characters whose personal lives move along with the series, and enrich the plot. It's a treat to read a story situated in Canada. Trafalgar appears to be modeled on Nelson, BC - a one-of-a-kind town in the Kootenays.
Carrington MacDuffie does such a good job of reading - although the famous Kokanee beer is not pronounced 'Cockanee', and most BC folks would say 'the Kootenees', ignoring the 'a'. I thought the story got a little weaker towards the end, but not enough that it spoiled it for me by any means.
