I love the nosey bitches. It’s cause I’m a nosey bitch myself. haha.  Could you imagine meeting a movie star and a few minutes later you see them get arrested for murder of their sister?! Would you go visit them in jail? Would you assume that they had enough friends to come see them? It’s a good thing Clare went, or poor Movie Star Matt would still be wasting away in jail. Thanks to no small part of ass Creighton.  He irritates me anyways, but I never thought of him being an iffy cop. We’ll see where that goes! I’m wondering if he gets himself in trouble later in the series!

There was a subplot story about a polygamist group. I could *almost* be a Sister-Wife….except I don’t share well. But, the idea of a community… yes, that I could on board with. I read ‘The Lonely Polygamist’ by Bradley Udall a few years ago. It was so very sad in the idea that you’d constantly be pulled apart in 100 different directions. I’ll just stay monogomarried. ❤

And of course, a fancy secret party. I wanna go to a fancy secret party. I’mma have to find me one! 🙂

This is #3 in the ‘A Farmers’ Market Mystery’ Series

Book 1 Farm Fresh Murder: A Farmers’ Market Mystery – Paige Shelton

Book 2 Fruit of All Evil: A Farmers’ Market Mystery – Paige Shelton

As I read more of these, I like them more and more. I know the first book in any series is a little iffy, as not only is the author setting up characters for a book, but the secondary characters have to be set up  in more depth to make a series work.

This time someone actually dies in Becca’s work kitchen and her momma is accused of the murder! So, she can’t be considered a nosey busybody when she’s trying to clear her momma’s name!

Plus, I’ve always thought Becca and Sam would have something going on! And they do!!!! Not that I don’t like Ian, but I love me some Sam! But she’s still with Ian! And Oh shit, her daddy knows whats going on! It’s some drama heating up. Not that I condone cheating, but I was a little excited! I can’t wait to see what happens.  A little drama other than murder to watch out for!

I am a fan of Paige Shelton. I’m reading her Farm Fresh Mystery Series (The first one here) and I’m really enjoying them. I liked this book more! There is something about Chester and Clare that I really enjoy. Also, the idea of working with ink press, stationary, and old books appeals to me. I love the smell of paper. I wonder if that’s part of the reason I like paperbacks so much is the smell of them – as well as the feel, obviously! It made me want to get my typewriter out of the garage and see if it still works. But, what would I do with it? I need a pen-pal. hahaha

The mystery surrounding an old typewriter and why someone was trying to steal it and wound up dead was so well written and intriguing. Weave in family dynamics and the whole book is really something worth reading. Could you imagine holding the key to a treasure?! This is the first book of the new series, and I’m excited about reading more!

Fruit of all evil

This is the 2nd book in the Farmers’ Market Mystery Series. The first one is:  Farm Fresh Murder: A Farmers’ Market Mystery – Paige Shelton I enjoyed this one more than the 1st one! Mainly because once you get to know all the characters in the first one, it’s like catching up with friends.

When Becca is asked to be maid of honor in a friends wedding, and the mother of the groom ends up dead, nobody knows what is going on!

I like the way that Paige Shelton puts together a story. Though Busy-Body Becca is gonna get herself killed one day cause she won’t mind her own business! But, isn’t that all the cozy mysteries? (This may not be a “cozy mystery”, and I’m not exactly sure what constitutes a cozy mystery, but I think of it as one)

Once again, there are recipes in the back. I’ve tried some of the ones from the first book, and I can’t wait to try these as well!

This series caught my eye at the library! I know, not a romance novel or a true crime?! It’s a miracle… Not really, I do love a mystery.

I didn’t know Farmers’ Markets were so exciting! In fact, murder aside, I never even thought what must go in to running or having a booth at a market. Having to haul all your stuff back and forth. Being out in the elements. I don’t think that having a stall at a farmers’ market would be for me. But, I know next time I go, I’ll be thinking more about what goes into getting the fresh foods and goodies.

Poor Becca, she just can’t help herself. I understand the wanting to help a friend, but who wants to be shot at while doing so!? Not me. Ha. I did appreciate Becca though. The fact that she’s been married and is a little cynical. The fact that she finds a love interest in a younger man. I think she’s fabulous and someone I’d like to be friends with. — Maybe, as most series’ go along, bad things always happen to the protagonists friends and family, and I don’t want that shit. – 🙂 It makes me want a greenhouse full of beautiful flowers. But, sadly I don’t have a green thumb and everything would be dead. A greenhouse graveyard. eek

I will say that I can usually figure out who the killer is and why, but with this book, I really didn’t know until it was revealed!

There are recipes in the back of the book. I have tried one of them, and I’m going to try the other’s and do a post. I thought that was cute to include the vendors recipes!
