Synopsis: When Megan Sawyer gives up her big-city law career to care for her grandmother and run the family’s organic farm and cafĂ©, she expects to find peace and tranquility in her scenic hometown of Winsome, Pennsylvania. Instead, her goat goes missing, rain muddies her fields, the town denies her business permits, and her family’s Colonial-era farm sucks up the remains of her savings.
Just when she thinks she’s reached the bottom of the rain barrel, Megan and the town’s hunky veterinarian discover the local zoning commissioner’s battered body in her barn. Now Megan is thrust into the middle of a murder investigation—and she’s the chief suspect. Can Megan dig through small-town secrets, local politics, and old grievances in time to find a killer before that killer strikes again?

Review: This is yet another new to me author with a brand new cozy series. Her writing is fun and easy to read. Cozies about small towns and rural areas always appeal to me, and this one is no exception.

The characters are typical small town folks--everyone knows everyone, and thinks they know all there is to know about them. However, just like in real life, some people have secrets which they never expect to come to light. 

There are plenty of potential murder suspects, and the reader will enjoy trying to solve the crime before Megan and her cohorts do. Can't wait to see what happens in Winsome next!

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Do you like paper or digital books best?

I don't really have a preference. If it's a good book, the format isn't all that important to me.
