Description

Harvest time in Cadyville, Washington, finds Sophie Mae Ambrose volunteering at the local organic farm—and trying to make a little sprout of her own with Barr, her police detective husband. But a dead body discovered in the farm’s compost heap is enough to cast dark clouds over Sophie Mae’s sunny mood. When Barr’s boss lets her know they need help identifying the body, a reluctant Sophie Mae presses her network of friends and neighbors into action. Turning up the heat on a whole crop of suspects seems to be producing results . . . until a farmhand is found with a shovel-shaped bump on his head. If Sophie Mae and Barr don’t root out the killer soon, it’s only a matter of time before another victim is squashed.

Praise:

"The pacing and setting are refreshing, and the craft details are well blended. Another strong volume in a series that will appeal to fans of farmer's market series from Paige Shelton and B. B. Haywood."—Booklist

"McRae's lighthearted mystery is quirky, well plotted and fun."—RT Book Reviews

"McRae, whose home-crafting mysteries always offer tips in mastering some new area of domestic expertise, spices her juicy mystery with some intriguing veggie lore."—Kirkus Reviews
