THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
The covers caught my eye and I didn’t recognize the author. I thought herbs and a mystery, great. That could good. I not found novellas. It is well-written and the main characters already developed. When I research the author, I learn her books are usually romance. Yes, it is cozy, a small town the protagonist is a herbalist and mini-farmer. Her boyfriend is the sheriff. The Plot is simple and you can figure out who is the killer. The protagonist managed to get herself in trouble but the sheriff was right there to save her. Not much information about herbs.
The first book we have herbalist, Bryony Taylor at a summer event when a man collapsed. It was later found that he was poison. The sheriff asked Bryony what plants have the toxins found at the drug test. There is a small amount of herbal information, I would have like more herbs facts. Another body is found. The ending was different. I have read the next book and will recommend the book for a quick read.
