5 Stars


Angie Turner hopes her new farm-to-table restaurant can be a fresh start in her old hometown in rural Idaho. But when a goat dairy farmer is murdered, Angie must turn the tables on a bleating black sheep . . .

With three weeks until opening night for their restaurant, the County Seat, Angie and her best friend and business partner Felicia are scrambling to line up local vendors—from the farmer’s market to the goat dairy farm of Old Man Moss. Fortunately, the cantankerous Moss takes a shine to Angie, as does his kid goat Precious. So when Angie hears the bloodcurdling news of foul play at the dairy farm, she jumps in to mind the man’s livestock and help solve the murder. One thing’s for sure, there’s no whey Angie’s going to let some killer get her goat . . .

The characters are well developed and well rounded.  I really enjoyed getting to know Angie and Felicia.  You can tell that they are good friends and they work well together. Angie is not afraid of hard work and she is not afraid to stick her nose into a murder investigation either.  And that is just what she has to do when someone is murdered and she is one of the last person to see the victim alive.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The writing style also allowed me to have a clear picture of all of the characters and everything that was taking place in the story.  The mystery was carried on well throughout the book and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through to keep me engaged.  

One of my favorites parts of this story were the animals that I got to meet.  Dom, her Saint Bernard puppy was so lovable and cute.  And then there was Precious, the baby goat, who was so adorable and charming.  Even Mabel the hen added a lot to the story.  I love when cozies have animals in them.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. Actually I would recommend all of the series written by this author because they are all great.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
