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.

Goat Trails and Jail Cells

Book Two in the Dewberry Farm series finds Lucy Resnick trying to contain her two goats, Hot Lips and Gidget, while her old truck is on its last legs. Someone is digging up the town, including her own farm in search of buried treasure, Confederate Gold . . . an ages old tale that most folks believe is hog wash . . . It is the holiday season and the Christmas market is in full swing. It is the season of giving. Lucy's friend, Molly is busy distributing friendship bread and starter to the townsfolk, when Krystal, one of the waitresses at the Blue Onion Cafe is found dead inside her burned out house. But it seems that Krystal was dead BEFORE the fire, poisoned . . . and now the lazy sheriff, Rooster, locks up Molly, saying that her bread is the culprit . . . Molly is in jail . . . Her teenage daughter, Brittany has run off with her boyfriend, son of the local charismatic preacher, and now Lucy's parents have come to the farm for a visit. If that's not enough to put Lucy's coping skills to the test, her new boyfriend, veterinarian, Tobias, has been covering two clinics, and has been seen having dinner with his ex-wife, who is in town looking for a weekend cabin. I love this series . . . clean, wholesome, but still has real life issues . . . and full of the crazies that plague small and large communities alike . . . I'm partial though, to the farm life, the goat shenanigans, cow escapes, and homemade goodies . . . and particularly life at grandma's house . . . great story and great resolution! Hope there are more to come!,

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!

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.
