My Rating :
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 . . .
Praise for Lynn Cahoon's Tourist Trap Mysteries “Murder, dirty politics, pirate lore, and a hot police detective: Guidebook to Murder has it all! A cozy lover’s dream come true.” —Susan McBride, author of The Debutante Dropout Mysteries “Lynn Cahoon has created an absorbing, good fun mystery in Mission to Murder.” —Fresh Fiction
I really enjoyed this first book in the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. The concept is a really neat one and something I haven’t seen before so it made the book original. The characters are very likable as well making it for easy reading. I look forward to reading the second book in the series once it is released.
As stated above, this is the first book in a brand new mystery series. It’s a light read at only 180 pages so readers will get through it rather quickly. Don’t let the page count fool you though as the book isn’t too fast paced where you feel like something is missing. In fact, I think it’s the perfect length as it gives all the information needed for the mystery and enough to get to know the characters without unnecessary details.
The main character in the novel is Angie. She moves back to her former small town in rural Idaho in order to open a restaurant with her partner Felicia. Getting to know the locals on a deeper level proves hard in the beginning, but Angie’s sweet nature makes it quicker for them to trust her. Too bad the one grouch that does like her right away is murdered!
Angie is on the case when the local goat cheese farmer is found murdered and will stop at nothing to crack the case. Readers will love following Angie as she not only follows clues to find the killer but getting to know her cool restaurant and business as well. If you are a cozy reader, this is a great book to grab. And, if you’re new to the genre, this is a good one to start with as it is s shorter read but has all the fixings for the perfect cozy mystery!
