    Good

    I am usually a huge fan of Lynn Cahoon but this next installment has me a bit frustrated. I'm really tired of reading how Cat breaks every treat she gets in half. Also tired of hearing characters call the baking "crazy good". Don't need to hear this over and over and over. Otherwise book is good.

    Murder after death

    Cat Latimer is hosting her latest group of writers at her retreat. Two couples and one college student make for a change in the way the retreat flows, making more time for Cat and Seth to spend together during retreat week. Given the military reunion from Seth’s Army days, this gives cat a chance to meet the men he served with. But when one of the men who died in Germany while they were serving years ago is found recently murdered locally things seem off. Cat believes the visiting men are connected and Seth does not agree. Will Cat and Uncle Pete solve the murder or will Cat and Seth be off for good? This series gets stronger with each entry. Lynn Cahoon consistently delivers with well developed characters, solid writing, and a solid mystery. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Cat and Seth as well as Uncle Pete and Shirley.

    The 6th A Cat Latimer Mystery

    A Field Guide to Homicide by Lynn Cahoon is the 6th A Cat Latimer Mystery. Cat Latimer and the group from her current writer’s retreat are on a hike led by Seth, Cat’s boyfriend. The reach a resting place when Cat notices a foot sticking out of a huckleberry bush across the way. The body belongs to a recluse who lived in the mountains near his gold claim. The victim is identified as Chance McAllister which Seth says is impossible. Seth served with Chance who supposedly died in Germany over ten years ago. Cat’s curiosity is aroused. It is lucky that Seth’s unit is having a reunion this week so Cat can do a little snooping around. I thought A Field Guide to Homicide contained good writing and the story moved along quickly which made this cozy mystery easy to read. This book can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. All the necessary background information is included. The characters are developed and realistic. The mystery was unusual for a cozy in that the reader finds out information along with Cat. We follow her along as she searches for clues and asks questions. I thought the mystery could have used a little oomph. I liked how the whodunit all tied together in the end. I did feel that there was a question or two left unanswered at the end. There were a couple side stories happening at the same time. Shauna has returned from visiting her brother, Jake and it was not the visit she had hoped it would be. Shauna must figure out how she will handle Jake’s persistent pestering for money. Seth is very closemouthed about his time in the army. He will not answer Cat’s questions and his mood has taken a downswing. Uncle Pete’s girlfriend, Shirley Mann is visiting from Alaska. Their relationship is progressing nicely and there might be wedding bells in their future. The current student from Coventry, Brodie wants to take his writing in a new direction. He could use a little guidance. It was interesting to learn more about the publishing industry. Cat shares her knowledge with her writer’s retreat group to help them decide whether to self-publish or go the traditional route. I find Cat and Seth’s relationship to be realistic. They have their ups and downs as do any couple. A Field Guide to Homicide has charming cozy moments with writing, chatting, cooking, and eating Shauna’s tasty food along with a special ending. A Field Guide to Homicide has a calamitous climb, a solitary stiff, a selfish sibling, a wistful writer, scrumptious cuisine, and a perplexing puzzle.

    I recommend the book & the series

    I received a free copy of A FIELD GUIDE TO HOMICIDE (Cat Latimer Mystery Series Book 6) by Lynn Cahoon in exchange for an honest review. Cat Latimer’s hosting another writer’s retreat. This time, Seth, Cat’s boyfriend, is taking an even bigger role in the nonwriting activities; Seth takes the group on a hike through the local countryside. When the writing group stops for a break at a planned scenic rest area, Cat spots something unusual in the vista - a body part protruding from beneath the shrubbery. More mystery than this murder surrounds the deceased; the man was a local soldier who served with Seth in Germany, where the man died a decade ago. Is it possible that Seth’s friend faked his first death and has been hiding in the hills for ten years without letting anyone know he was still alive? Moreover, is the man’s second death related to his first? I liked this book and enjoy the series. Lynn Cahoon is one of my favorite cozy mystery writers. I recommend this book to fans of Lynn Cahoon, to fans of the series, and to fans of cozy mysteries featuring college towns, outdoor adventures, military intrigue, bed & breakfast settings, and writers. #AFieldGuidetoHomicide #NetGalley
