Killer Comfort Food

Farm-To-Fork Mystery, Book #5

5 Stars


Angie Turner’s Idaho restaurant, the County Seat, is known and loved for its fresh food. For Angie, it’s also meant a fresh start. But when big agriculture comes to town—along with whispers of foul play—Angie could lose more than the farm . . .

A soybean processing plant is trying to buy up the land around the small farm Angie’s beloved Nona left her. If Angie doesn’t sell, she’ll be surrounded by the plant and the congestion that comes with it. On the other hand, it’s Nona’s farmhouse. What is Angie supposed to do without it? Move into a condo in town with Precious, Mabel, and Dom—respectively, a goat, chicken, and dog. Worse, a troubling rumor is circulating about the lawyer who’s heading up the development: His socialite wife seems to be missing. When Barb, owner of the local bar, asks Angie to look into the woman’s disappearance, she’s hesitant—until Barb reveals her surprising connection. Now it’s up to Angie to find the woman, uncover a shady plot, and hang onto her home—before she becomes a criminal’s final course …


The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and this helped me get into the story from the very beginning.  I could picture things very clearly in my mind’s eye and helped me stay engaged throughout the whole book.  

The characters were well developed and well defined.  Angie and Ian are getting along really well, their relationship is moving along nicely.  Angie and Felicia are hard workers and all the people that work at the County Seat are like family to Angie. Which is just how she likes it.  There is a mystery to solve, and Angie and Felicia are all over it. Angie also has to try and figure out a way to save her Nona’s farm and the animals that go with it.  She has her work cut out for her.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  These books just keep getting better.  

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