Publisher's Summary

Lucy Resnick's nerves are as tight as a tea cozy. Her new goats, Hot Lips and Gidget, keep making a break for the town square, her truck is dying, and her boyfriend's gorgeous ex-wife is in town for the holidays. Worse, someone's digging holes on her land...and uprooting her peach orchard and dewberry patch in the process. Lucy needs additional holiday stress like she needs a blow to the head - which she receives one night, courtesy of the mystery digger.

When the dim-witted sheriff arrests one of Lucy's best friends, the former reporter puts her own problems on the back burner and starts investigating. What she finds is a patchwork of clues - an injured puppy, a sapphire necklace gone missing, and a string of poison-pen letters - that draws her deep into a web of small-town secrets.

Word travels fast in Buttercup. When the killer learns Lucy's on the trail, Lucy finds she needs more than her reporting skills to save her friend - she needs a Christmas miracle.

Love this series

I love murder mysteries and this one didn't disappoint. I love the simplicity of this story having grown up in the country myself. I miss small town living where everybody knows everybody and not afraid to pitch in and help. This story brings this together and so much more. I loved the goats antics, can't help but laugh. My heart broke at the beginning of the story when a puppy was barely hanging onto life after being brought out of the burning house even though I knew this was just a story and not actual reality. I'm so glad the puppy made a full recovery. The clues given by the psychic and Lucy's grandmothers help makes the story even more touching. So if you are interested in this story grab a sweet glass of iced tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the sweet life of Dewberry Farm.

Great Story

I enjoyed this book just like the book before it. The characters are realistic and engaging. The plot has well developed ideas and is well paced. I look forward to the next book.

Enjoyable Story

I liked the story, light mystery. Unfortunately the narrator use of, 'He said, she said, I said" was too much.I found it very distracting

Fatal Frost

For almost half the audio I was not thrilled with the narration at all, I was able to get thru it due to the excellent story. Someone with a slight Texas accent would be perfect.

Lots of I said and she saids

The amount of I said, she said, he said, etc...was quite annoying to me. Otherwise I quite enjoyed this one as much as the first. Properly diabolical murderer. Hopeful for another book soon.

nice little Christmas mystery

A quaint little town and story. I can easily relate to Lucy as I have a small farm myself. A few continuity errors in and between this story and the first one, and a couple of technical errors regarding the recipes. I'd love to proofread the next book for them before it goes to publishing!
