Synopsis:
Snow is piling up in Westbury, Massachusetts, and Cam Flaherty’s organic farm has managed to survive the harsh New England winter. Unfortunately murder seems to be the crop in season…
Cam is finding the New Year just as hectic as the old one. Her sometimes rocky relationship with Chef Jake Ericsson is in a deep freeze, she’s struggling to provide the promised amount of food to the subscribers in her first winter CSA, and her new greenhouse might just collapse from the weight of the snow. Supplying fresh ingredients for a dinner at the local assisted living facility seems like the least of her worries—until one of the elderly residents dies after eating some of her produce.
Cantankerous Bev Montgomery had a lot of enemies, from an unscrupulous real estate developer who coveted her land to an aggrieved care provider fed up with her verbal abuse. But while the motives in this case may be plentiful, the trail of poisoned produce leads straight back to Cam. Not even her budding romance with police detective Pete Pappas will keep him from investigating her.
As the suspects gather, a blizzard buries the scene of the crime under a blanket of snow, leaving Cam stranded in the dark with a killer who gives new meaning to the phrase “dead of winter.”


My review:

From the start of this book you will be pulled into the story. The town and the charm will win you over and the cast of characters will keep you captivated and not wanting to leave. You will feel like you are part of this town, the warm atmosphere and the fast paced story keeps you wanting more. Cam is a well developed character and she will do as that she has to do to find out who the killer really is and get back to her daily life. Twist and turns along the way make this story interesting. You won't want to put this one down. I am looking forward to what will happen next.

  6. The first thing that attracts me to a book of an author I am not familiar with is the cover. The cover of this book is delightful and reminds me of our winters here in Ohio. Definitely added to my TBR list. robeader53@yahoo.com
