Overcommitted committee member Abby McCree gets in a patch of trouble trying to solve the murder of a pumpkin farmer …

The small town of Snowberry Creek, Washington, is gearing up for the Halloween Festival, and naturally Abby is on the planning committee. As part of her duties, she’s picking up a pumpkin order from ornery farmer Ronald Minter. But what she finds instead is the farmer in the middle of his corn maze with a knife in his back.

The police suspect a homeless veteran named Kevin Montgomery, who was seen arguing with Minter when the farmer accused him of trespassing and stealing pumpkins. Abby’s tenant Tripp Blackston, a veteran himself who’s been helping Kevin, is sure he’s innocent. Together, Abby and Tripp follow the twists and turns of the case to corner the corn maze killer—before someone else meets a dead end …


My Review
4 out of 5 stars

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. This is the second book in the Abby McCree series, but I didn’t feel confused or like I was missing anything by not reading the first one yet.

It took me a while to warm up to Tripp’s character, but I really enjoyed Abby’s character. She is pretty funny and I found myself laughing out loud several times.

The pacing was steady throughout the book so the story held my interest and made me want to keep reading to find out what would happen next. The mystery was done very well. I was stumped about the killer so the reveal was a total surprise.

I’m looking forward to going back and reading the first book in this series.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
