Happy Book Birthday Edith!

FarmedandDanFarmed and Dangerous is the third book in Edith’s Local Food Mystery! Here’s a little about the book: Snow is piling up in Westbury, Massachusetts, and Cam Flaherty’s organic farm has managed to survive the harsh New England winter. Unfortunately murder seems to be the crop in season…

Cam is finding the New Year just as hectic as the old one. Her sometimes rocky relationship with Chef Jake Ericsson is in a deep freeze, she’s struggling to provide the promised amount of food to the subscribers in her first winter CSA, and her new greenhouse might just collapse from the weight of the snow. Supplying fresh ingredients for a dinner at the local assisted living facility seems like the least of her worries—until one of the elderly residents dies after eating some of her produce.

Cantankerous Bev Montgomery had a lot of enemies, from an unscrupulous real estate developer who coveted her land to an aggrieved care provider fed up with her verbal abuse. But while the motives in this case may be plentiful, the trail of poisoned produce leads straight back to Cam. Not even her budding romance with police detective Pete Pappas will keep him from investigating her.

As the suspects gather, a blizzard buries the scene of the crime under a blanket of snow, leaving Cam stranded in the dark with a killer who gives new meaning to the phrase “dead of winter.”

Liz: Yay, Edith!! I love following Cam around on her adventures. Congratulations on Farmed and Dangerous – and I LOVE the title! Anxiously to get home and crack open the book tonight!

Sherry: I agree with Liz, the title is great! I can’t believe the third in the series is out! I was lucky enough to get to read an early version! This is another great book in the series and doesn’t disappoint!

Barb: This is my absolutely favorite Local Foods cover! Even though I am not in the mood for winter (I am freezing my patooties off on June 1st as I type this), I cannot wait to read this book.

Julie: Leave it to Edith to order up a cold wave so we can all get in the mood for this read. I am so looking forward to this, and thrilled to follow more of Cam’s adventures. I also love, love, love the cover. Congratulations!!

Jessie: Even though this installment is set in the winter, this series always puts me in the mood to roll up my sleeves and dig in the garden. Thanks, Edith!

Edith: Thank you dear friends! I’m so thrilled by this cover, by this continuing series, by the reception the book has already gotten so far, and most of all by having such an enthusiastic support group – the Wickeds and all our Wicked Cozy commenter community. You guys are the best.

  1. Congratulations, Edith. I love that snow plays a major character in your book. It sure helps to heighten the drama. I look forward to reading it.

  2. Congrats! It’s next on my TBR pile as soon as I finish my current read, which is taking forever thanks only to my trip out of town and my hot water heater adventures last week. Looking forward to it.

  3. Fabulous book! I posted my review to Amazon (finally allowed) and am now ready to read (re-read) the finished “real” book. A college prof said that anything worth reading is worth reading twice . . .
