Local Foods Mysteries
The Local Foods Mysteries feature novice organic farmer
Cameron Flaherty and take place in the town of Westbury, Massachusetts.
Mulch Ado About Murder, book five in this popular series, released in May, 2017. When a local farmer is found dead in a vat of hydroponic slurry, there’s no shortage of suspects, including the dead woman’s embittered ex‑husband, the Other Man whose affair ruined their marriage, and farmer Cam’s own mother.
Murder Most Fowl came out in 2015. When a cold-blooded killer puts the big chill on the residents of Westbury, Massachusetts, organic farmer-turned-sleuth Cam Flaherty has to set aside her seedlings for the time being as she tills the soil for clues in the mysterious death of a local poultry maven.
In book three, Farmed and Dangerous, snow is piling up in Westbury, Massachusetts, but murder seems to be the crop in season. Supplying fresh ingredients for a dinner at an assisted living facility seems like the least of Cam’s worries—until one of the elderly residents dies after eating some of her produce. As the suspects gather, a blizzard buries the scene of the crime under a blanket of snow, leaving Cam stranded in the dark with a killer who gives new meaning to the phrase “dead of winter.”
In the second book in the series, ‘Til Dirt Do Us Part, the produce is local–and so is the crime–when long-simmering tensions lead to murder following a festive dinner on Cam Flaherty’s organic farm. It’ll take a sleuth who knows the lay of the land to catch this killer. But no one ever said Cam wasn’t willing to get her hands dirty…
In A Tine to Live, a Tine to Die, geek-turned-novice farmer Cameron Flaherty hopes to make a killing selling organic produce. But when a killer strikes on Cam’s property, her first foray into the world of organic farming yields a bumper crop of locally sourced murder. To clear her name, Cam has to dig up secrets buried deep beneath the soil of her farm. And when the police don’t make progress in the case, she has to catch a murderer whose motto seems to be, “Eat Local. Kill Local.”
