    Engaging

    The annual Mushroom Festival is ready to kick off in Redwood Cove, CA and it looks to be an interesting weekend. for Kelly Jackson, manager of the Redwood Cove B&B, she’s looking forward to participating in the activities as one of the newest residents. Things kick off with a mushroom class hosted at the B&B where a local report seems to have raised the ire of several local participants. The next day as the festival kicks off, the day begins with the murder of the local reporter…and her friend Daniel, manager of Redwood Cove B&B sister Inn is the primary suspect. Knowing that Daniel could never harm someone, Kelly and the Silver Sentinels, a group of local seniors who solve crimes in Redwood Cove are hot on the case. Soon Kelly is a potential next target when she is warned to stop asking questions, is threatened by another suspect , and is pushed into the river. Will the Silver Sentinels and Kelly find the murdered before Daniel is taken away or Kelly comes to harm? This book kept me engaged and had me struggling to put the book down and go to sleep…I HAD to find out who did it and why. Well developed characters and well written. While it is the fourth in the series, I had not read any of the other books and was able to settle right in. I can’t wait to read the first three books in the series!

    Those Beautiful Redwoods Hide Mushrooms and more

    Murder at the Mushroom Festival is the fourth in the Kelly Jackson series and my first experience with the series or the author. In this installment, Kelly Jackson has been named permanent manager of the rustic Redwood Cove B&B and is gearing up for the festivities by bringing in Elise Jenkins to host a cooking class featuring mushrooms. Among the town's guests are Ned Blaine, a reporter who is creating a lot of animosity as he noses into secret mushroom locations that he plans to disclose on the internet. Some of the locations are on reservation land and off limits. Also among the redwoods and on reservation land are "sinker logs," an extremely profitable result of old growth logged last century, some of which found their way into lakes and streams. Ned has a confrontation with Daniel Stevens, one of the local Native Americans and is found murdered on reservation land. Kelly gets the Senior Sentinels involved and I enjoyed the way they go about solving the mystery and the different personalities involved. While this book may function as a standalone, it's possible protagonist Kelly was more fully developed in previous episodes. The little redwood community sounds disarmingly quaint and the seaside location is described well enough to taste the salt air and feel the heavy mist. The well-plotted storyline keeps a steady and engaging pace introducing many interesting facts along the way regarding our beautiful northern California redwood coast. Kelly seems to be a missing manager for most of the activity, focusing on the whodunit and there seemed to be an abundance of character tension and a wide choice as to who might have done it. The dialogue flowed naturally and the well-crafted plot came to a satisfying conclusion, wrapping up loose ends, but the culprit was not a surprise having been a strong suspicion from introduction. I was allowed this ebook download by Kensington Publishing Corp and NetGalley and greatly appreciated the opportunity to read and review. Recommended for fans of cozy mysteries, those who love our northern California coastal area, or anyone who loves to learn about the unique assets of our beautiful country.

    I loved it!

    This series has quickly become one of my favourites. This fourth in the series exceeded my expectations. These characters are among my all time favourites. Pair this with a first rate whodunit and you have a true gem of a series. I hope there are more books in this series to look forward to! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    5 Stars Fun Series

    I jumped into this series at book 4 and that was A o.k! Although I really enjoyed the characters and need to go back and read the rest just because I want to! My head was spinning though not in a bad way with all the villainous crimes! Murder, theft, blackmail, the Indian land being dishonored and just a few threats thrown in to make everyone a little nervous. The road is twisty and curving and will keep you a bit on the edge of your seat with all the action and mystery. I enjoyed meeting all the sleuthing seniors that help Kelly by snooping and solving the crime to clear her friends name. The addition of all the animals to the story made it especially fun for me! If you love cozy mysteries that have some great animal characters you'll enjoy this series. And one of my favorite parts was the cover. I would pick this one up for sure and check it out. I'd read the back and then Buy It! I do have to say I was a little disappointed there was one of the animal characters that sadly missed being on the cover! I am looking forward to reading much more! I received a complimentary copy.
