    Loved It!

    I have loved Wendy's other books, and I had this one pre-ordered so I would be sure to get it as soon as it was released. I was not disappointed. It is a delightful combination of wonderful characters, romance and murder to investigate that I thoroughly enjoyed from the first page to the end. There are twists and turns that kept me reading to see what was going to happen next. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.

    Great start to a series

    Wendy Tyson has created a place I'd like to visit, Washington Acres Farm Café & Larder in Winsome. Megan Sawyer has given up her big city lawyer job to help her Grandmother Bonnie Birch, aka Bibi, restore the family farm and create a business in town that uses their organic produce and products. Having a handsome veterinarian, Dr. "Denver" Finn taking an interest in Megan eases the loneliness of widowhood too. Solving the murder of zoning Commissioner Simon Duvall, that took place in her barn, adds to the growing complications of juggling demands in her life and worry over the safety of Bibi. A variety of animals and their antics provide humour and give the vet a reason to visit often.

    Good cozy mystery

    Megan Sawyer left her job as a lawyer in the city to go back to her family home to help her grandmother, Bibi. Her plan was to get the farm going again and open a store and café where she'd use things grown on her family's organic farm. The Zoning Commissioner, Simon Duvall kept failing every inspection and holding up her permits preventing her from opening. Lots of other things went wrong for her like too much rain and her goats getting out. Those things she could handle but the permits she couldn't. When Simon was found dead in her barn she's the prime suspect. Megan took on the job of finding out who really killed him. This cozy mystery was easy to read and a very enjoyable story to get lost in. Even with the detailed descriptions of Megan's farm and business slowing it down a bit, I liked this story. The characters in this small town were very likeable and several had unusual backgrounds. Then there were the dogs and pygmy goats keeping things lively. Megan had a big but welcome change in both her profession and accommodation but she handled everything well. Even when she was suspected of murder she kept going. The only time I found her annoying was when she went out - to the barn or check something outside - when there was a murderer on the loose. That seemed pretty foolish to me. And she was wonderful to her grandmother. I loved Bibi! It did have a pretty exciting ending and I was surprised when I found out who the bad guys were. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    First book in a new series!

    A Muddied Murder by Wendy Tyson is the first book in A Greenhouse Mystery series. Megan Sawyer has returned to Winsome, Pennsylvania to stay with her grandmother, Bibi. Megan did live in Chicago and worked as a lawyer but came home when Bibi needed her. Megan is helping with the family farm, Washington Acres, and is opening a combination store and café in town. Megan is also turning the Washington Acres into an organic farm. But Megan has been encountering difficulties in opening the store/café. She keeps getting denied the appropriate permits (methinks someone is against her new venture). Simon Duvall is the person behind it (and he is one nasty man). Then Simon Duvall ends up dead in her barn. When Bibi ends up being a suspect, Megan sets out to clear her with help from the local vet, Dr. Daniel Finn (there is a romantic spark between them). Then the sabotage starts. Will Megan be able to find the culprit and open her new store/cafe? I enjoyed A Muddied Murder. It has good characters, a lovely setting (sounds like a beautiful town and farm), and a good mystery. The mystery was complicated (just the way I like them), but there are few clues provided (you can solve the mystery without them). One thing I did not like was Megan’s impatience. She wanted answers NOW (became frustrating). The romance in the book was a little rushed. It was too much for the first book. I give A Muddied Murder 4.25 out of 5 stars (since I was able to solve it). I think this is the beginning of a good series. I look forward to reading the next book in the series next spring. I received a complimentary copy of A Muddied Murder from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
