Sheila Connolly A Late Frost

I was sent A Late Frost  by Sheila Connolly to review, and I had agreed to review it later this month but I enjoyed it so much I have decided to move it up. I have not read every book in this series actually I think I may have only read two but I loved this book. It piqued my interest from the start and it kept surprising me at every turn. It was not overly predictable as cozies can be and it had a truly fresh feel. I liked how this book had unlikely turns and twists. I loved the introductions of the new characters and how comfortable I felt in the book, as if I too were a member of the community. This books was sad in parts, exciting in parts and anything but predictable. I very much enjoyed it. 

The usually quiet town of Granford, Massachusetts, is even drowsier during the colder months. But this year it’s in for a jolt when Monica Whitman moves into town. She’s a dynamo who wants to make friends fast in her new home, and she throws herself into community activities. Meg Corey, now Chapin after her marriage to Seth Chapin, is intrigued by the new arrival, who has already sold the town board on a new, fun way to bring in visitors during the off-season: WinterFare, which will feature local foods (such as Meg’s apples) and crafts, as well as entertainment. Tragically, Monica falls ill and dies after the event in what looks like a case of food poisoning. When all the food served at WinterFare has been tested, including Meg’s apples, it becomes clear that there’s a more sinister explanation to the older woman’s sudden demise. Meg’s investigation uncovers a bushel of potential suspects, one of whom is rotten to the core.  

A Late Frost is out now and you can find it on Amazon by clicking here.
