“A Muddied Murder” is a marvelous start to this new series! Wendy Tyson takes us to rural Pennsylvania where life is supposed to be slower and filled with gentle folk. But that is not always the case, especially for the people of Winsome, when there is a murderer at large.
Wendy Tyson has planted a good first seed in “A Muddied Murder” for her Greenhouse Mystery series to grow! There are plenty of interesting people to meet, especially Bibi. There is also a new romance blossoming between Megan and town veterinarian Daniel “Denver” Finn. The mystery in the book is indeed a true mystery till the very end. I am looking forward to seeing what will spring up next in the Greenhouse Mystery series!
When Megan Sawyer gives up her big-city law career to care for her grandmother and run the family’s organic farm and café, 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?
