Summer in Deep Lakes sprouts a homegrown murder on the O'Connor farm. Frankie Champagne's hunt for clues lands her deep in sheep doo-doo, especially after rare stones surface in unexpected places. Crime-solving is no picnic for the baker/vintner as she hops from farm to field to bakery, trying to keep up with the tourist season and track a killer, too.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This is a new author/series for me but so was eager to dive into it to see what happens. I have no regrets and highly enjoyed the story. We follow Frankie who honestly is a hoot. She is taking care of a sheep farm while the owners are away at a family wedding. Things should have gone smoothly but then strange sounds wakes her up in the middle of the night. Upon investigating she found a man shot. Questions arise about what happened so Frankie decides she has to look into things before the owners return. This leads to all sorts of interesting situations as well as strange things going on. Set in a small town that is filled with a wide range of characters sets things up for quite a few surprising twists that will keep you turning the page to see what happens next. Made of a delightful cozy that is sure to be enjoyed by fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
