In Farm’s Way is another great cozy mystery from one of my favorite authors, Amanda Flower.
Shiloh is coerced by her best friend, Kristy, to investigate a murder of an almost universally disliked local brewery owner. Despite the plethora of suspects, the police are focusing on Kristy’s husband and Shiloh must help her friend.
The story has a realistic heroine in Shiloh. She is trying to update her ailing father’s farm into an organic showplace. She also has a possibly love interest or two. However, my favorite character is her adorable pug, Huckleberry, who misses the warm California sun during the snowy Michigan winter. I’m sure most of us can relate.
This is the third book in the series but the first that I have read. While I could follow the mystery plot, some of the background information would have been helpful to round out the secondary characters. Still, In Farm’s Way is an entertaining cozy mystery even as a standalone. 4 stars!
Thanks to Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
