The New York Times bestselling author of Merry Market Murder returns to Bailey’s Farmers’ Market where Becca Robins must get her cousin out of a jam…
This summer, Becca is looking forward to selling her delicious jams and preserves, but things are changing fast at the farmers’ market. A fleet of food trucks has arrived for a two week visit, peddling cupcakes, tacos, chicken wings, and more—including a gourmet hot dog truck operated by Becca’s own cousin, Peyton.
Tensions between truck operators and market vendors over their required licenses reach a crescendo when the town’s business manager is murdered. With Peyton already under suspicion of stealing money and a secret recipe from the restaurant where she worked in Arizona, the cops start grilling her as their prime suspect. Now it’s up to Becca to clear her cousin and find out who at the market gave themselves a license to kill…
Bushel Full of Murder is Paige Shelton’s newest release in her Farmers’ Market cozy mystery series. The main character, Becca Robins, is in for a big surprise when Bailey’s Farmers’ Market hosts food trucks for the next two weeks. The even bigger surprise is the arrival of her cousin Peyton and her hot dog truck. Before Peyton even arrives, an old friend shows up from Becca’s time in Arizona. Harry is one big law man and even his friendship with Becca cannot stop him from searching for his quarry. His suspect in an assault and robbery that happened in Arizona just happens to be cousin Peyton. Harry is convinced she did it, but agrees to let Becca help in the investigation. All signs point to Peyton’s guilt and maybe that is someone else’s doing. Becca introduces her love Sam to Harry and they hit it off right away. Things really put Becca’s love and her good friend Harry together when a murder occurs and Peyton is not only at the scene of the crime, but also the prime suspect of the murder.
Bushel Full of Murder is a well written, action packed, thrilling mystery. The characters are fun, diverse and well developed. With two separate mysteries being investigated at the same time, by two different jurisdictions and Becca, there still seems to be only one person who fits the bill for as the guilty party in both. Becca and her sister Market manager Allison search for answers and other suspects. Their search is entertaining and enticing as well as fruitful. The wonderful characters are as amusing as always in Paige Shelton’s Farmers’ Market Mystery series. Reading Bushel Full of Murder is like coming home, while it is still as fresh as a just picked tomato. This installment of the superb series is as great as all the others and even better. Love the sentimental and heartwarming events (no spoiler here though). There are plenty of if new suspects, a few red herrings and circumstances that intrigue and mislead. The storyline is entertaining and captivating. Paige Shelton’s writing style is exciting while at the same time endearing. I feel like I am hanging out with good friends when I get to pay a visit to Munson and Bailey’s Farmers’ Market.
This book is the 6th in this enchanting series. I do not think you need to read them in order to thoroughly enjoy this delightful book. But really they are all great so why not treat yourself. This is a fresh and tasty cozy that would appeal to any fan of the genre. Well written, full of action, intriguing mysteries, great characters and interesting twists and turns make Bushel Full of Murder a true winner. For those that have read all of this series, I think you will truly love this newest installment. I cannot wait for the next in this entertaining cozy series. Exciting happens await I am sure!!
