The time seems ripe for success as Angie Turner opens her farm-to-table restaurant in her Idaho hometown—until her new tomato supplier is accused of murder and Angie has to pick the real killer…
To Angie, nothing tastes more like summer than her Nona’s fried green tomatoes. Eager to add the recipe to the menu at the County Seat, she’s found the perfect produce supplier—her sous chef Estebe’s cousin, Javier. Just one problem: ladies’ man Javier’s current hot tomato Heather has turned up dead, and he’s the prime suspect. Somehow, between managing her restaurant and navigating a romantic triangle between Estebe and Ian, the owner/manager of the farmer’s market, Angie needs to produce evidence to clear Javier—before this green tomato farmer gets fried…
Please welcome Kory from My Cozy Chaos. She is here today to share her thoughts on Killer Green Tomatoes.
Howdy, I am so excited to be here on Brooke Blogs today. I am a huge cozy mystery fan and I absolutely love sharing, great books, and authors. I believe as a reader it is important to share what books and authors we read and enjoy, so that we continue to have great books published by amazing authors.
Today I am sharing a book by one of my all-time favorite authors Lynn Cahoon. She writes several series including the Tourist Trap series and Cat Latimer series. Her newest series is the Farm to Fork series and I fell head over heels for it. The second book in the series, which was just released on July 3rd, is called Killer Green Tomatoes, and it is delicious!
Killer Green Tomatoes brings us back to the Country Seat a new and upcoming restaurant in rural Idaho. Where Angie Turner and her friend and business partner, have moved to make Angie’s dream of owning a restaurant that highlights and emphasizes farm-fresh ingredients come true. The restaurant is doing great and the kitchen team is working together seamlessly. When the girlfriend of her Basque Sous Chefs cousin is discovered murdered near the Country Seat, Angie must run the restaurant and solve a murder.
What I love about this series is the family and friendships that are front and center, Lynn Cahoon has created characters that you cannot help but fall in love with and want to visit. Angie is a great sleuth and I love her sidekick Precious, her goat she adopted in the first book and her puppy Dom. They add laughter and give the story an even more down home on the farm feel. The way that Lynn Cahoon describes the farms, fresh produce, and food served at the Country Seat make your mouth water. This is the kind of book, which you cannot put down. I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this book. I did not want this book to end. If you are a fan of cozies with a farm theme then you will love this series, as much as I do.
This book can stand alone, although I highly recommend reading the first book in the series as well. You can find my review of Who Stole My Goat Cheese?, the first book in the series and get the recipe for my Grandmother’s Green Tomato Pie on my blog’s Facebook page My Cozy Chaos. Thank you so much for reading my review!
