Even the best-laid plants can go awry…
After solving a murder and getting her organic farm ready to overwinter, Shiloh Bellamy still expects the next few months to be busy with repairs, spring planning, and networking with local businesses. She might even be able to broker a new partnership with Fields Brewery and its organic brewer’s association. Well, she could if the owner wasn’t found murdered at the county Ice Fishing Derby.
Once again, Shiloh gets tangled up in the investigation when the police ignore an entire crop of suspects to blame one of her friends. She’ll have to dig deep to find the truth, reel in a killer, and convince her city-slicker pug to wear his winter boots. But with Bellamy Farm still struggling, can Shiloh spare the time to look into the town’s fishy characters? Or will her dream farm be the next thing floating belly up?
USA Today bestselling Amanda Flower returns to the Farm to Table cozy mystery series with another exciting sleuthing adventure!
This is the third book of the farm series and I actually enjoyed reading this cozy thriller.
Shiloh Bellamy returns back to the scene as we know that she moved to Michigan to her father’s farm to help with the farm and looking after her father. Huckleberry is her pug who follows her around everywhere she goes. So when her pug finds a man buried deep in the ice, Shiloh finds that the man has been murdered and would use her detective skills to catch the killer.
I do like the setting of the story, particularly the ice fishing and the descriptions of the snow part. There were interesting parts in the book and overall, this was quite enjoyable to read. There were few supense and thrills in the book and the author did a good job of drawing the reader into the story. overall, if you like a good cozy thriller then I think you should try out this book. Worth four stars.
