I haven’t read very many cozy mysteries before. When I saw this title, Farm to Trouble, it really caught my eye.

I love farms! Love the idea of owning and operating a farm, of course without all the back-breaking work! So I was completely intrigued to pick up this book.

To begin with, the main character Shiloh Bellamy is returning to her family farm after being away for 15 years. Her father can no longer run the farm due to his health. Shiloh has decided that she will turn the farm into an Organic farm and create a cafΓ© on the farm to help drive business. The current debt is too much for her small bank account so Shiloh turns to the only investor who is willing to help. She signs a deal with the most hated man in town (unbeknownst to her) and the day after she returns to town, this investor is murdered at the farmer’s market, and Shiloh happens to be the first person to find him. With everyone pointing the finger at her, Shiloh is determined to prove her innocence by solving the mystery of who actually committed the murder.

This cozy mystery is entertaining and I really enjoyed it! I loved the backdrop of the farm and wished that it had taken more of a center-stage in the overall story. The town characters are interesting and I’m looking forward to future books in this small Michigan town setting. Hopefully there is a lot more farm antics added to the future stories!

Thank you to #PoisonedPenPress and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
