It s hive time for murder in the latest Cranberry Cove mystery from national bestselling author Peg Cochran. It's June in Cranberry Cove and Monica Albertson's plan to sell cranberry relish to chain stores is taking off. The cranberry bogs are in bloom, and local beekeeper Rick Taylor and his assistant Lori Wenk are bringing in bees to pollinate the blossoms. When a fatal prick fells Lori, the buzz is that Rick is to blame. In trying to clear her friend s name, Monica discovers that more than a few people in Cranberry Cove have felt the power of Lori s venom, and it looks as if this time she may have agitated the hive a bit too much. With the fate of the farm on the line, Monica must get to the bottom of the crime before another victim gets stung."
Here is what I thought
Dead and Berried is book three in the Cranberry Cove series and I enjoyed it.
Monica and the gang our back and it seems like things are going pretty good. Greg and Monica are growing closer to each other but she does worry about her brother cause his girlfriend is gone off to a job and he hasn’t heard from her so he thinks she doesn’t want to be with him. He fights depression.
Lori one of her employees is found murdered and another one of the employees for the cranberry farm who is the beekeeper is blamed. She doesn’t think Rick did it but she has to be sure so investigating ensues. There are a few suspects in who could have killed Lori but even though I figured it out towards the end I was really surprised at who done it.
It was fun being back with the gang from Cranberry Cove and I can’t wait till the next time.
(Sorry this is short. It was the first book I listened to while in the Philippines and my memory is a bit fuzzy and I didn’t take very good notes…lol.)
