As a Lover of nuts, I was interested to read this mystery, the second in the series. Lindy Blanchard is a likeable character and the setting of a pecan farm is unique, to say the least. The mystery is well plotted and the characters extremely likeable – plus there is a bonus of pecan recipes for all nut lovers! A definite recommend! Four Paws – ROCCO LOTEMPIO
Murder gets nutty in the latest in Elizabeth Lee's delectable Nut House series
Lindy Blanchard’s family pecan farm is known county-wide, but it’s the goodies her grandmother sells at their store, the Nut House, that really bring in the crowds?until someone turns one of her tasty treats deadly?
The ?Most Original Pecan Treat” contest at the Ag Fair is the talk of Riverville, Texas, especially when it’s clear that Miss Amelia Blanchard’s Heavenly Texas Pecan Caviar will take home a blue ribbon. Which is why everyone is amazed when her dish doesn’t even place?and even more shocked when one of the judges, Pastor Jenkins, keels over dead, right after taking a second taste of Miss Amelia’s food.
No one in town truly believes that Amelia would even hurt a fly, but all the evidence points to poor Pastor Jenkins’ death being caused by poison in the caviar. Now, unless Lindy figures out who wanted to frame Amelia for murder, her meemaw may have baked her last famous pecan pie
