Author:Peg Cochran
Series: Book 1 A Farmers Daughter Mystery
Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
Format: Paperback
Source: Received for Review from Publisher
Star Rating: Five Stars
Reviewed by: Tina



Dear Reader,

I really enjoyed the blog entries at the beginning of each chapter of the first in the Farmer's Daughter Mysteries by Peg Cochran. So I tried to think outside the box and include it in my review how Farmer and gardener of Love Blossom Farm and mom and new ameture sleuth, Shelby MacDonald did in No Farm, No Foul. And how the entries to Dear Reader snuck in to the story.

Shelby MacDonald is a farmer,gardener of Love Blossom Farm, blogger, chronicling her families life on the farm  and  a mom of Amelia, a budding teenager and Billy. She sells her fresh Yogurt Cheese Spread to Matt at the Lovett, Michigan General Store, everyone raves about it. St, Andrews Church that Shelby and her family attend are having a church potluck at Love Blossom Farm.  Dear Reader...You just know something is going to go down. 

Reverend Daniel just recently joined the congregation of the church from another fictional town, of Cranberry Cove that Peg Cochran readers should know well and his wife, Prudence who is found strangled by Shelby with her own slow cooker cord in she brought her contribution of meatballs in.Prudence has a mean streak underneath her hoity-toity exterior. Shelby's best friend, Kelly may know something about the murder.

Shelby wants to find the truth when a piece of evidence is found in her mudroom. But someone within the congregation may have a burning desire to want Prudence dead.Dear Reader...a possible affair, theft and a long lost son ...Possible motives for murder...could be? And with Shelbys cheese making class eager to talk about it instead of making cheese and someone coming after Shelby and her family she needs to find a killer.

Shelby MacDonald is a relatable  character,as a mom of a teenager, I feel like she does. A light, fun and entertaining mystery perfect for a foodie. Although this story is set in modern day it somehow reminded me of "Little House on the Prarie" a T.V show I treasured. Lovett, Michigan is a small farming town that has the setting of everything cozy from the farm to the food to the murder.
