    Going Back Home Can Be Murder

    The first installment in the new farm to fork series by Lynn Cahoon is a feast for the mystery lover. Chef Angie Turner returns home to River Vista, Idaho after her grandmother passes away and she inherits the farm. She also brings along her BFF and business partner. Felicia, as the plan to open farm to table restaurant called The County Seat. As Angie works to source local farmers to supply the restaurant, she connects with a goat cheese farmer and old friend of her grandmothers who is not well liked in the community. But the reunion is short lived when old man Moss is found dead. While Angie grew up In River Vista, she has been gone for quite a while, and quickly becomes a topic of discussion for the community who is talking about her and the murder. With just a short time before opening the restaurant, and there’s a lot to be done and now Angie needs to add solving a murder to the list. This was an enjoyable story that takes a new spin in the cozy mystery space with the farm to table concept that is hot in the culinary world today. I look forward to future installments in the series and seeing what the future has in store for Angie, her friends, The County Seat, and the residents of River Vista.

    Great for Foodies and Animal Lovers

    Friends Angie Turner and Felicia Williams have decided to start their second joint venture in the sedate little town of River Vista where Angie grew up under her grandmother’s influence. Planning a farm-to-fork restaurant, the freshest commodity they discover is the murder of the local goat farm curmudgeon. Big kudos to Lynn Cahoon, author of a new Farm-to-Fork Mysteries series beginning with Who Moved My Goat Cheese? A clean book, and one in which I was pleased to not encounter any bad language. Although this is a rule of cozies, it is one that is increasingly broken. There were some good red herrings and twists and turns, with just the right amount of what the reader may also want... enough clues to feel the author’s villain makes sense, a hint of romance, and maybe even a possible love triangle to come in future books? Cahoon includes some special touches, one that I consider a “good” cozy requirement and some others that just brought a grin to my face. The “requirement”? The cozy sleuth needs to spend as much time at her business working as she does sleuthing. Check. One special touch? The mention of Nona’s junk drawer. The second special touch is the goat being tied up outside at one point. I imagine I am not the only one whose memory of John Thompson piano lessons immediately kicks into high gear and starts hearing in my head, “Bill Gordon’s Goat...” A fun cozy and a great start to a new series. I am grateful to NetGalley and the publisher for a complimentary copy. A positive review was not required. All opinions are solely my responsibility.

    A Farm-to-Fork Mystery series

    Who Moved My Goat Cheese? by Lynn Cahoon is the first story in A Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. Angie Turner has moved to River Vista, Idaho to live on the farm she inherited from her grandmother (Nona). She has partnered with her best friend, Felicia Williams to open The County Seat which has a farm-to-table concept. It is only three weeks until they open, and the pair are still working to line up all their local vendors. One of the vendors they would like to work with is Gerald Moss of Moss Farm who sells goat cheese. The one caveat is the crusty Mr. Moss who only sells his products to people he likes. Fortunately for Angie, Mr. Moss and his goat Precious take to Angie right off. He talks to her about his farm, his cheese cave and a secret that he will enlighten her on in the future. The next morning Angie is told that Mr. Moss is dead. Angie soon discovers that not many people cared for Mr. Moss or are upset at his passing. This distresses Angie especially since Mr. Moss knew her Nona, and it sets her on the path to solving his murder. When Angie goes to investigate the scene of the crime, she comes across Precious and ends up with a new farm resident. Angie fits in her sleuthing in between setting up the restaurant, taking care of Precious and Dom (her St. Bernard pup), purchasing supplies for the restaurant, and visits from her neighbor, Mrs. Potter. Who disliked Mr. Moss enough to kill him? Angie is determined to find out in Who Moved My Goat Cheese? Who Moved My Goat Cheese? is a good start to A Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. I liked the authors conversational writing style and the story had a steady pace. It made reading Who Moved Goat Cheese? a pleasure. The story has good characters, but I wished the author had given readers more of Angie’s backstory. I hope we learn more about Angie and Felicia in the next story. I loved Dom, Angie’s St. Bernard puppy. He reminds me of my dog, Doozy (his name tells you about his character). Dom was a delightful addition to the story as was Precious, the goat. Both were quirky, entertaining and added levity to the story. I like the theme of farm-to-table and it was nicely incorporated into the mystery. The mystery had several suspects and there was good misdirection. I was able to identify the killer early in the story, but it took longer to find out why this person killed Mr. Moss. The mystery had some intriguing elements (I would say more but I do not want to spoil it for you). I would like to have a little more action in the next book in the series. The life lesson about not being able to change the past and not to dwell on it is a good addition to the book. It is one many people struggle with daily (myself included). I am giving Who Moved My Goat Cheese? 4 out of 5 stars. I will be reading Killer Green Tomatoes when it comes out. Who Moved My Goat Cheese? is a feel-good cozy mystery that readers of Lynn Cahoon and cozy mysteries will enjoy.
