Farm to Trouble: A Farm to Table Mystery

Amanda Flower. Poisoned Pen, $8.99 mass market (288p) ISBN 978-1-4926-9991-0
Shiloh Bellamy, the heroine of this sprightly series launch from Flower (the Magic Garden mysteries), returns to her hometown of Cherry Glen, Mich., after 15 years spent building her career as a TV producer in Hollywood. Her goal is to get her family’s failing farm up and running again. To that end, she has signed a contract with entrepreneur Jefferson Crocker, who has agreed to invest heavily in her plan to convert the farm to organic growing methods. When her father, Sully, hears of her deal, he flies into a rage. It seems that Sully, like many Cherry Gleners, views Crocker as a heartless money grubber, intent on owning the town and filling the surrounding farmland with wind turbines. Shiloh, realizing she’s made a mistake, goes to the farmers’ market intent on convincing Crocker to let her out of their contract, only to find him dead. For the local police, she becomes the prime suspect. With a full complement of insecurities, along with a nice sense of humor, Shiloh is a winning lead. Flower ticks all the requisite boxes: a good man, a bad man, a mean woman, a small town, and family conflict. Cozy fans will be enchanted. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Feb.)
