  • I loved it!

    This series is one of my top five. This sixth book in the series exceeded my expectations. These characters are among my all time favorites. Pair this with a first rate whodunit and you have a true gem of a series. I look forward to reading further books in the series! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Wild, Wild West

    Kelly Jackson and her colleagues are working with their boss, Michael, to highlight the benefits of working with the Veteran community to their business owners. They’ve planned a Western themed event with several chefs preparing recipes using locally forage foods. When two of the chefs disappear along with Michael it looks like they may have been kidnapped. The Silver Sentinels decide to help look for the missing people, as well as helping to solve a murder, find the thieves who are stealing protected plants, and clearing a friend of a theft charge that he was set up to take the fall for. As they start sleuthing things look more and more like they are all related to the plant thieves and solving one will help to solve the others as well. But Kelly seems to have a knack for finding trouble, or trouble finding her, meaning the team needs to act quickly before they need to add Kelly to their list of things lost. Another fabulous entry in this series. Looking forward to seeing what cupid has in store for Kelly as we move ahead.

  • I liked it.

    I received a free copy of MURDER IN THE WINE COUNTRY (Book 6 of the Kelly Jackson Mysteries) by Janet Finsilver in exchange for an honest review. The businesses of Redwood Cove are all pitching in on an event meant to raise awareness of how many of the area veterans are struggling as well as to raise funding for the projects in place to assist them. Local wineries are sponsoring tastings, and professional chefs are foraging for wild edibles in preparation for the culinary competition associated with the veterans’ event. Lots of mischief is afoot in the small coastal town: plant poachers, hostile environmental activists, murder, theft, kidnappings, ransom demands, and a frame-up. With so much going on, can Kelly and the Silver Sentinels get the mysteries solved in time to support the local veterans, or will the super sleuths be overwhelmed? This time, someone may get away with murder. I liked this book and enjoy the series. I recommend this book to fans of the series. I recommend the series to fans of cozy mysteries featuring murder, small coastal towns, bed and breakfast settings, dogs, light romance, and frequent environmental or social issues. Pet peeve: use of “literally” in the figurative sense. #MurderintheWineCountry #NetGalley

  • A Fabulous Instalment!

    Murder in the Wine Country is the sixth book in the 'A Kelly Jackson Mystery' series. In this instalment, an event to raise awareness for the plight of struggling veterans is taking place in Redwood Cove, Northern California. Kelly Jackson, manager of the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast, is excited to be participating. Local wineries are sponsoring tastings, and professional chefs will forage for wild edible greens to prepare for a culinary competition. Michael Corrigan from Resorts International, the organisation responsible for hosting the event, has brought in advisers warning the community to be vigilant as plant poachers have been operating in the area. The succulent Dudleya farinosa, a popular plant and a status symbol of Chinese middle-class families, is very highly priced. In addition to the problem of poaching, a wave of crimes occur in the area, and Kelly and the Silver Sentinels (the name a bunch of senior sleuths and town residents have given themselves) find they have to decide which crime to focus on. Although this was my first book in the series, I adored this novel and I had no trouble keeping up with the events and the characters! It had a great setting - I love books that have a seaside location, as I live near the coast myself so there is always a connection there. Janet Finsilver made great use of the locale - there was a real sense of community and a general buoyant vibe. This, as well as a town full of misdeed, made it a brilliant backdrop for a murder investigation. Murder in the Wine Country saw the return of protagonist Kelly, who had the necessary attributes of any great sleuth - intelligence, curiosity and attention to detail. This book had many of the components that make a really good story: from the mood and undercurrents to the very clever writing. The details of the plot were brilliantly executed and every chapter left me with a compelling need to read on. The finale is perfectly satisfactory, with all loose ends neatly tied up. I highly recommend Murder in the Wine Country to those who appreciate well-written cozy mysteries. This is a novel I really enjoyed, and I very much look forward to my next outing with Kelly and the Silver Sentinels! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request from Kensington Books via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • disappointed

    This book just didn't do it for me. I have read others in the series and I still just haven't quite gotten into the theme of them. This one bothered me for some reason throughout the book, I felt like Kelly is too good to be true. She is like Supergirl taking care of everything that is wrong. It just seemed over the top to me. I also felt as though there was so much put into the book with the two concurrent mysteries and yet neither one was really developed. Even the characters all seemed superficial to me.

    Thanks for your feedback!
