Summer in Deep Lakes sprouts a homegrown murder on the O’Connor farm. Frankie Champagne’s hunt for clues lands her deep in sheep doo-doo, especially after rare stones surface in unexpected places. Crime-solving is no picnic for the baker/vintner as she hops from farm to field to bakery, trying to keep up with the tourist season and track a killer, too.

Comments on “Cozy Wednesday featuring Deep Green Envy (Deep Lakes Cozy Mystery Series) by Joy Ann Ribar #Review / #Giveaway – Great Escapes Book Tour”
Thank you for shining the spotlight on me and my Deep Lakes Mystery series! I’ve met many new readers this week and hope to continue the conversation with them on Social Media or any of my in-person events! Lori, Thanks so much for spreading the word about my series. -Joy Ann Ribar
Sounds like a fun read from a new(to me) author.
Thank you, Julie. I like humor to lighten up a murder mystery. Hope you enjoy! -Joy Ann Ribar
Sounds like a great cozy. I can’t wait to read it.
Thank you, Rita. I love cozies and I’m glad you do, too. Let me know if you give it or any of them a read. Enjoy-Joy Ann Ribar
You are a new author to me. The book is now on my TBR list. Thanks for the giveaway.
Thank you, Deborah! I love being on a great stack of books. My TBR pile is gigantic. Not sure what I’m going to do as we’re downsizing to an RV! -Joy Ann Ribar
Are there lots of wineries in Wisconsin, where the author lives? Wisconsin doesn’t come to mind, when I think of where wineries are in North America. I live in the Niagara Peninsula.
Denise, you live in an excellent winery area that I plan to visit next year. Wisconsin has over 100 wineries! We are able to grow cold climate grapes (similar varieties found in Germany), but our wines tend toward the sweet side. However, there are at least 2 wineries I’ve visited here that use Niagara grapes from NY for their wines. They are delicious! Let me know where your favorite wineries are (I love reds and whites of all kinds.) -Joy Ann Ribar
I never knew Wisconsin had so many wineries. There are lots of wineries along a wine trail below the Niagara Escarpment stretching from Winona, Grimsby, Beamsville and Jordan to Niagara-on-the- Lake, where most are located, along with some craft breweries. We even have Tall Post Cider in our village of Binbrook, which makes cider from apples trees grown on their own farm. Other Ontario wineries are located on Pelee Island on Lake Erie. It’s amazing the number of wineries, which have sprung up in the last twenty years. Not only can you sample the wine and take a tour of the wineries, but many have excellent restaurants too. Inniskillin is the big one in Niagara-on-the-Lake. A friend from my class in high school was one of original owners of Stoney Ridge Winery. I love our ice wine, which has won many international awards. The land below the escarpment was the bottom of an ancient sea. As the water receded, Lake Ontario was formed. As a result, this area has some of the best agricultural land in the world and is famous for growing fruit. Jordan is also famous for artisan cheese at the Upper Canada Cheese Factory made from a single local Guernsey herd. It’s located in an old railway station. Outside of Binbrook, in Elfrida, there are two other cheese factories, one specializing in Montasio cheese.
Sounds like a great cozy mystery. Cute cover too.
Thanks for the compliment, Bonnie. I help design the cover with my ideas and my illustrator brings them to life. I hope you read it and love it! This one is nominated for an award so I’m pretty tickled. -Joy Ann Ribar
How long was the writing process?
I have four novels in the series and each took about the same amount of time to write: 3 months from writing through early editing. Final edits took about another month. I outline my ideas with pen and paper. The outline goes into a document where I add some details I don’t want to forget. Then, I start pounding the keyboard. I add chapter heading quotes at the end after I re-read the novel. -Joy Ann Ribar
