Discovery for me and I am looking forward to reading her other books soon Liked the plot but the main character I didn t like so it spoilt the story a bit for me This was another cute mystery in Blossom Valley Dana is working at a festival when the person in the booth next to her is killed Dana s sleuthing skills are always entertaining Further adventures in randomly reading cozy mysteries this time or less rewarding I enjoyed the voice the pacing and the characters who were funny side characters sometimes got the best lines side characters sometimes got the best lines mystery was also sufficiently complicated and well explicated I thought the lines of it the protagonist s investigation were very clear and easy to follow without it adding up to something tediously superficial The protagonist isn T Really Into The Whole Clean Living really into the whole clean living living thing personally which I wasn t expecting from the conceit of the series but her snidenessignorancedistaste was relatively infreuent Present but infreuent I also enjoyed the passages about feeding and caring for the ducks and the pigs at the farm because that s the kind of extra content I really like in cozies gentle everyday stuff I mean everyday for other people I don t come across ducks or pigs daily myself 3rd in the seriesI binged read books 1 3 in two days Held my attention with the different cozy setting and the humor.
