A Beeline to Murder by Meera Lester

A Beeline to Murder (Henny Penny Farmette Mystery, #1)

Book one in the Henny Penny Farmette Mystery series. This is the cutest book! I really enjoyed the mix of the story, the recipes, and the bits of advice at the beginning of each chapter. It made a nice change from the layout of some books and most of the added little bits were actually quite useful. The story itself also had a nice blend of both a farming and private investigation which seems to provide a nice balance for Abby as she adapts to no longer working on the police force after an injuring made her have to retire way earlier than she would have chosen to. She purchased a farmette to fill her time with and now focuses on bees, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and so much more which I absolutely loved. While running the farmette she also still works as a private investigator which helps with her need to investigate and help people (plus her best friend is still a cop). When she goes to make a honey delivery to the chef in town she finds him dead and the police are adamant that it was a suicide so his brother asks her to get involved providing a nice paycheck that will help with farm repairs that are needed. The investigation that follows is an interesting mix between farm work and looking for clues that had me hooked until I reached the last page. I have to admit that I found this book remarkably fascinating. The setting is well described, the characters are described in enough detail to make you love them (especially the little dog that made me laugh), the mystery is well thought out, and the writing style just flows from one page to the next. I highly recommend this book to fans of cozy mysteries or just ones that like a little twist in their mystery novels. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
