Angie Turner’s Idaho restaurant, the County Seat, is known and loved for its fresh food. For Angie, it’s also meant a fresh start. But when big agriculture comes to town—along with whispers of foul play—Angie could lose more than the farm . . .
A soybean processing plant is trying to buy up the land around the small farm Angie’s beloved Nona left her. If Angie doesn't sell, she'll be surrounded by the plant and the congestion that comes with it. On the other hand, it’s Nona’s farmhouse. What is Angie supposed to do without it? Move into a condo in town with Precious, Mabel, and Dom—respectively, a goat, chicken, and dog. Worse, a troubling rumor is circulating about the lawyer who’s heading up the development: His socialite wife seems to be missing. When Barb, owner of the local bar, asks Angie to look into the woman's disappearance, she’s hesitant—until Barb reveals her surprising connection. Now it’s up to Angie to find the woman, uncover a shady plot, and hang onto her home—before she becomes a criminal’s final course . . .
Praise for Lynn Cahoon's Tourist Trap Mysteries
“Murder, dirty politics, pirate lore, and a hot police detective: Guidebook to Murder has it all! A cozy lover’s dream come true.”
—Susan McBride, author of The Debutante Dropout Mysteries
“Lynn Cahoon has created an absorbing, good fun mystery in Mission to Murder.”
Comfort Food Killer is a suspenseful "cozy mystery" about a missing woman and whether or not her disappearance, as well as other suspicous occurrences, are related to a new soybean company's development plans. The protagonist is Angie, a chef and restaurateur extraordinaire. Good character development. For example, Angei's compassion and concern for both people and animals, is touching. showing that for women, being both kind and strong are not mutually exclusive. I will not give away spoilers, but I will say that I enjoyed this book, and found it easy to follow even though I had not (yet) read the four previous installments of the series. I plan to check into more of Cahoon's books.
