  • A new author and series for me

    Monica and Greg are having a quiet evening at home during a heavy snow storm when there is a knock at their door. A woman says she has gotten lost and her car is stuck, but also that someone tried to kill her. Given the storm, and her supposed amnesia, they take Dana in for the night and Monica helps her find the house she remembers. It turns out it’s her family homestead and they find her sister dead in bed. While it looks like a natural death, things seem off though and Monica becomes a friend to Dana as she navigates her loss. Turns out a developer made the family a rather large offer on the land and while the deceased woman declined to sell, it seems the other siblings may have a motive to get their sister out of the way and grab their golden ticket. With warnings from the killer, Monica watches her steps as she tries to outrun the killer until the pieces all fall into place. This is the first book I have read in this series and I enjoyed it. It’s always fun to discover a new author, especially one that has others books in the series that will keep you in reading material until the next release comes out.

  • Great mystery with yummy treats!

    **I received Berried in the Past through NetGalley, in exchange of an honest review** The past few days placed me in a mood where I longed for a story to help me escape the complicated times the world is currently experiencing. I found that story in Berried in the Past! This told the story of Monica Albertson, a small-town baker in Cranberry Cove (a village set in Michigan). Monica sets out to solve the murder of Marta Bakker, after her sister unexpectedly appears at her doorstep one night. Everyone who Monica meets has an explanation (and possibly a motive) for the woman’s death! My interest was held from beginning to end, since I was curious to see how the mystery of Marta’s death would be solved. The side characters (and the conflicts that added on to the tale) kept things very interesting as well! This book is the fifth installment of the Cranberry Cove series, but you don’t need to read the previous books to catch up on the goings-on in this small town. While I was relieved to discover that fact, I plan on picking up one of the earlier books in the series to learn how Monica’s relationship with the townspeople solidified! The book was also filled with mouth-watering treats and baked goods. There are some recipes in the back of the novel which I’m very interested in trying out this week (I enjoyed reading about the Cranberry Orange Cake)! Berried in the Past by Peg Cochran is sure to bring that escape from the crazy times happening in our world. You won’t be disappointed!

  • lLikeable Characters, Mystery and Great Food.

    Peg Cochran throws you right into the mystery with a bang-up first chapter. There is a knock on the door and a woman, disheveled and stunned, claims someone is trying to kill her. She is taken back the next morning to her family home, and it is apparent that her Sister is dead and has been for several days. The writing is smooth and continuous allowing us to catch up with the back history of Monica and Greg. They are living in a small cottage owned by Monica until they build their own House and start a family. The background is scrumptious. We have a baking area and a store which means lot of recipes and food...the air is filled with all those goodies. I love anything with cranberries so there is no problem with that. The atmosphere is icy and snowy, with winter days and a shivery, continuous, mystery. Red herrings are folded into the story as neatly as a recipe. In fact, I highly recommend you get a cup of tea and a muffin and read this on an evening you can pretend you are next to a roaring fire. This book has everything...likeable characters, mystery and great food. My thanks to Netgalley and Beyond the Page Publishing

  • Long Awaited Instalment

    It has been a few years since we last had a new book in Peg Cochran's Cranberry Cove series. In the fifth book we have newlyweds Monica and Greg enjoying married life and settling nicely into their domestic bliss. One night a car drives up the lane to their cottage and a woman who is obviously in distress and has no memories of what is happening tells Monica that someone is trying to kill her. Never one to turn down someone in need, Monica and Greg invite the stranger to stay the night with them in the cottage. What follows is a mystery involving land developers, family dynamics, potential amnesia, and lots of baking. The format of the story is interesting. The mystery portion begins immediately, and there are a number of chapters that centre of Monica and the mystery leaving out some of the aspects of a novel that make a cozy. Later in the book we are re-introduced to some of the supporting characters and the town of Cranberry Cove. The mystery itself was really well laid out. I was apprehensive about the idea of memory loss as a plot device, but Cochran does execute the concept well. The result at the end was unexpected (at least to me, because I am very bad at solving mysteries) and it was an enjoyable ride to get there. I am hoping for many more instalments of the Cranberry Cove series!

  • Cozy mystery

    Monica and Greg are newly married and living on a cranberry farm. On a cold, snowy night, a woman comes to their door and says someone is trying to kill her, but doesn’t remember anything else. The next day, the woman remembers where she was and finds he sister has died. When the death turns out to be murder, Monica begins asking questions. There are several suspects. A developer wants to buy the land to build a mall, but he is also looking at the cranberry farm as a possible site. Monica’s brother is thinking of selling, but the locals are against the mall and are not happy. The family of the dead woman is desperate to sell, but is the motive based on money? The characters are interesting, the mystery kept me guessing, and I loved the setting. A nice cozy mystery to read on a quiet evening.

    Thanks for your feedback!
