~Melina’s Book Blog
…good suspense… I liked the characters. There was a sense of community.
…a fun read that I completely enjoyed. If you take the time to dig into this book, you’ll be richly rewarded.
It’s a cozy mystery really amazing and engaging: the plot is well constructed, the characters are realistic and likeable, with funny animals and an inevitable and turbulent love story between the protagonist and the detective. The setting is perfect: a quiet rural community.
Great cozy read! Well written and a good mystery.
Filled with delightful friendships and people of all ages willing to help each other out, forming a wonderful sense of community, there are enough clues and suspects here to keep you wondering who-dunnit until the very last pages.

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.”
