Berried Secrets by Peg Cochran

Berried Secrets (Cranberry Cove #1)

Book one in the Cranberry Cove series. Welcome to the world of cranberry bogs in Cranberry Cove, Michigan. Monica has moved there to help her brother run his farm after he returns injured from serving as a soldier. Jeff does the farming part, and Monica bakes all of the cranberry goodies that are sold at their little farm store. It is harvest time and Monica gets up early to go with Jeff so she can see what all goes into gathering the ruby red berries after the bogs have been flooded. They don their waders, grab their rakes, and get starting pushing the berries towards the machine that will suck them all up.Just as hse starts to get the hang of things her rake gets stuck on something. When she tugs on it something floats to the surface. It is quickly obvious that it is a dead body. It just happens to be the mayor who ran the farm when her brother was deployed. The problem is that it was just discovered that the mayor was robbing him blind which combined with other things makes Jeff the main suspect. Of course Monica has to investigate to clear his name which put her in danger as well. This is a great cozy mystery. It has some wonderful characters (both at the farm and in town), smooth development, plenty of surprises, and enough action to keep the reader turning the page until they come to the end. I really enjoyed reading it so I give it 4/5 stars.
