Darn that Martha Grimes! This is the third book in the Emma Graham series (the first two being "Hotel Paradise" and "Cold Flat Junction"), and it doesn't have a real ending, just like the first two. I don't know why I keep reading them. Probably because I keep hoping to get some answers someday. Belle Ruin is the third in a series in which the narrator is a 12-year-old girl. Set in the States at an indeterminate locale, probably 40 years ago. Of course, she's just a little too precocious. Chaim Potok was one of the few writers to really pull off seei Having been disenchanted by Martha Grimes over the past 5 years or so, I picked this up (second-hand) to give her another crack. Also influenced by a recent NPR interview with Martha and her son who've published a memoir about getting sober.
I love everything Martha Grimes has written and highly recommend the Emma Graham series, including Cold Flat Junction, Belle Ruin, and Fadeaway Girl. A departure from her Richard Jury books, but very entertaining fare told from the viewpoint of an 11 year old girl living in a small town. This item: Hotel Paradise (Emma Graham Series).

Another beautifully written and crafted book by Martha Grimes. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 12 years ago. Yes, Belle Ruin is a sequel. That means you have to read the books that came before it or it can be rather confusing. And, like most books, you can't skim through it and expect to get the point. Besides, Martha Grimes' prose is worth reading every word. The characters are u'll find things to like, love, and dislike in all of them. And the story is like real life; sometimes there's no neat, tidy ending

For waitress and cub reporter Emma Graham, tragedy defines where she lives. Spirit Lake, La Porte, and Lake Noir have been held in thrall by intertwined crimes: the murders of Mary-Evelyn Devereau, Rose Queen, and Fern Queen; the supposed kidnapping of a four-month-old baby from the Belle Ruin hotel twenty years previously; and, most recently, the attack on Emma.

But when she discovers the crumbling shell of a fabulous hotel- the once-sumptuous Belle Rouen-in the woods near her small town of Spirit Lake, Emma never imagines that the mysteries it holds will bring her one step closer to solving a forty-year-old crime-and force a new transgression to light.
Author: Martha Grimes. Hotel Paradise (1997). And I wonder: why is it that a growing thing that springs up of its own accord and in surprising places must be "just a weed"?The creepy truth is some poor cooked to death egg on its moon walks. Impatient photographers hung around the edges and they were sorry inside the lines
Series: Emma Graham (3). Members. I just can't seem to develop a taste for Martha Grimes' books, thought I've tried a number of them. This one I liked least of all. Part of the problem was trying to listen to it while driving - way too rambling a story to be able to follow well in bits and pieces
