The time seems ripe for success as Angie Turner opens her farm-to-table restaurant in her Idaho hometown—until her new tomato supplier is accused of murder and Angie has to pick the real killer . . .  

To Angie, nothing tastes more like summer than her Nona's fried green tomatoes. Eager to add the recipe to the menu at the County Seat, she's found the perfect produce supplier—her sous chef Estebe’s cousin, Javier. Just one problem: ladies’ man Javier’s current hot tomato Heather has turned up dead, and he’s the prime suspect.

Somehow, between managing her restaurant and navigating a romantic triangle between Estebe and Ian, the owner/manager of the farmer's market, Angie needs to produce evidence to clear Javier—before this green tomato farmer gets fried . . .  

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

Lynn Cahoon is still a fairly new author to me, but she is quickly climbing into one of my favorite cozy authors. Her characters just seem to speak to me. They are realistic, relatable, and easy to love. The mysteries aren’t cheesy like some cozies out there, and are fun to solve right along with the characters. My only issue, and really it’s an issue with all cozies not just this one, is that the murders are a bit far fetched. Finding a murdered person once is a tragedy. Finding them twice, three times, and more is just unbelievable. Especially in a small town that hasn’t had any in decades. I get that it’s all part of the fun, and honestly I like how easy it is to fall into these mystery and solve the case, but they are still improbable to actually occur in the real world. 

With that, this is another impressive cozy from Lynn Cahoon and I would recommend it to anyone who has read the first book in the series. I wouldn’t recommend starting it wherever you want in the series because the characters are introduced in book one and you;ll learn about them, their business, and how they came to be.
