Shelley's Review

Peaches and Scream by Susan Furlong

Series: A Georgia Peach Mystery (Book 1)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Berkley (July 7, 2015)

In the first Georgia Peach Mystery, when murder threatens her family’s orchard, Nola Harper is ready to pick out the killer and preserve the farm’s reputation…

To help run the family peach farm during her parents’ absence, Nola Harper returns to her childhood home of Cays Mill, Georgia, and soon discovers that things back at the farm aren’t exactly peachy. A poor harvest and rising costs are threatening to ruin the Harpers’ livelihood, and small-town gossip is spreading like blight thanks to Nola’s juicy reputation as a wild teenager way back when. But Nola really finds herself in the pits when she stumbles upon a local businessman murdered among the peach trees

With suspicions and family tensions heating up faster than a cobbler in the oven, this sweet Georgia peach will have to prune through a list of murder suspects—before she too becomes ripe for the killer’s picking…

This is a perfect read for summertime fun.This first in the Georgia Peach series will pull you in from the start with a fantastic story and characters so fun and well developed you won't want to put it down once you start.Nola is home for the summer so her parents can have some vacation time from the Peach Farm. She never expected a murder the night of the party and that has made her summer more hectic than she hoped for. When Ben is found murdered, questions arise at who did it and why. Nola has to find out what happened and clear her sister before her parents come back.I enjoyed this book from the start and look forward to what Nola will find herself into next.Oh and you will have a peach or two craving by the end of the book.
