NO FARM, NO FOUL By Peg Cockran


The first in a new cozy that has an element of mystery. I found easy reading, but it didn’t engage my emotions. There is almost no police procedural of the murder and it is very predictable. Shelby MacDonald lives on Love Blossom Farm and writes a blog sharing her life and recipes with others. She is noted for her homemade cheeses. The farms offer vegetables, cheeses, and jams for sale. She is raising two children by herself. Shelby’s church is holding a fundraiser event on the farm. Late in the day, the pastor’s wife goes into her mudroom and later she is found strangled to death. The sheriff’s department is called and starts exploring the death. At that point, Shelby’s preteen daughter is seeing a boy behind her Mother’s back. We are treated possible love interest of three different men. Oh, yes the murder is solved before the book’s end and the why is different. I recommend this book for a relaxing read. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Berkeley Publishing Groups through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. These types of books always have the best titles though, we can definitely give them that! Good review.

    • Yes, I feel when downgrading a book you must tell why. It is an enjoyable but not really a mystery. This kind of book is hard to to place. Thanks for the visit a comment and follow.
