Murder Goes to Market by [Daisy Bateman]If you had asked computer programmer Claudia Simcoe what she expected to come of her leaving San Francisco for the California coast to open a farm-to-table marketplace, “assembles a mismatched team to investigate a murder” would not have been her first guess.

Lori Roth is one of the tenants of the market, or she had been until Claudia learned that the hands making her “hand-dyed” textiles belong to overseas factory workers. Claudia terminates Lori’s lease, but her hopes that this will be the last she sees of her problem tenant are dashed when she arrives at the marketplace the next morning to find Lori dead, hit over the head with a jar of pickles and strangled with a cheese wire.

The police chief thinks Claudia looks like an easy pick to be the killer, and he closes the marketplace to put the pressure on her. So, Claudia has no choice but to solve the mystery herself. Relying on the tech skills from her previous life and some help from her quirky new friends, Claudia races to save her business and herself before the killer adds her to the region’s local, artisanal murders.  (Amazon)

An exhausted Patience McKenna is attending a benefit at a Baltimore bookstore as part of a ten-city tour arranged by a do-gooder publicist and a mega-rich donor. It’s for a good cause, but she’s more than ready to head back home to New York and hit the sack. At least they’re serving refreshments.
Then, as she’s chatting with a fan, McKenna’s foot bumps the body of a priggish local bibliophile hidden beneath the book-signing table. The deceased woman had been widely disliked, but would a literary luminary have actually gone to the trouble of killing her?
Fortunately, McKenna’s background as a  true crime writer will enable her to examine the evidence and help the police turn the page on this case, in a twist-filled, witty mystery by Orania Papazoglou, aka Jane Haddam, author of the Gregor Demarkian Holiday series.
“Sophisticated adventure edged with terror. . . . [A] smash finale.” —Publishers Weekly
“Patience is likably wry company.” —Kirkus Reviews  (Amazon)
