Reading for entertainment is extra beneficial when it is also educational. I love this aspect of cozies, and DANDELION DEAD and its series, NATURAL REMEDIES MYSTERIES, is both educational and entertaining, teaching readers while delivering a compelling and engrossing mystery.

Dandelion Dead is a fun read, both for the mystery and the info on edible plants and natural remedies.
~The Book’s the Thing
Another great read for Chrystle Fiedler. I really enjoy this series and visiting Willow and all of her friends.

Dandelion Dead is the fourth Natural Remedies mystery and is full of Christle Fiedler’s characteristic warmth and plenty of tips and recipes for those interested in herbs, essential oils, and natural living. The plot is cunning and clever, reminiscent of the TV classic, “Murder, She Wrote.”
~The Girl with Book Lungs
It was a really fun and intriguing read, impossible to put it down before the end, a page leads to another.
Dandelion Dead is a very engaging read. The mystery is well plotted and the main characters are very likable. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.
I have never enjoyed a cozy mystery as much as I enjoyed this one.
Get ready for a great mystery that is action packed, filled with surprises and an ending you don’t see coming. The recipes at the back of the book is a great addition along with information about animal rescue. I’m excited that I have found a new and exciting author to read.
Dandelion Dead: A Natural Remedies Mystery

In a cozy mystery filled with natural cures and edible plants that you will love, an organic winery becomes the backdrop for murder! Fortunately, solving crimes comes naturally to charmingly unconventional amateur sleuth and holistic doctor, Willow McQuade, as she looks for clues that will reveal a killer’s true vintage.
Business is blooming at Nature’s Way Market & Café, and shop owner, holistic doctor, and amateur sleuth, Willow McQuade has never been happier. Her new medicinal herb garden is a hit, so is her new book, she’s in love with ex-cop and animal rescuer Jackson Spade, and enjoying teaching seminars about edible plants and natural remedies.
But everything changes when Willow’s old boyfriend and TV producer, Simon Lewis, winemaker David Farmer, and his wife Ivy, ask her to cater a party at Pure, their new organic vineyard, to kick off North Fork’s Uncorked! week and the competition for Wine Lovers magazine’s $200,000 prize. Pure’s entry, Falling Leaves, is the favorite to win, and the wine flows freely until after Simon’s toast when smiles give way to looks of horror. Ivy’s twin sister, Amy has been murdered! Turns out, the poison that killed her was actually meant for David. But who wants him dead? A rival vintner? Or someone closer to home? This time the truth may be a bitter vintage to swallow.
