Cozy Review – Dying for Strawberries by Sharon Farrow

Dying for Strawberries (A Berry Basket Mystery #1)With seasonal crowds flocking to its sandy beaches, lively downtown shops, and the Berry Basket, a berry emporium with something for everyone, the lakeshore village of Oriole Point is ripe for summer fun—and murder.
Much has changed for Marlee Jacob since she returned to Oriole Point, Michigan, three years ago. Between running the Berry Basket, dodging local gossip, and whipping up strawberry muffins, smoothies, and margaritas to celebrate the town’s first annual Strawberry Moon Bash, the twenty-nine-year-old hardly has time for her fiancé, let alone grim memories of her old life in New York . . .
But unfortunately for Marlee, Oriole Point is muddled with secrets of its own. First her friend Natasha disappears after an ominous dream. Next the seediest man in town threatens to crush her business. Then an unknown person nearly kills her on the night of the Bash. When she discovers a dead body while searching for Natasha, Marlee realizes she’ll have to foil a killer’s plot herself—before the past permanently stains her future.

What a delicious start to a new series! This was a fast paced mystery with an interesting and diverse cast of characters that I could actually care about. There were plenty of suspects, and enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and I can’t wait to make some Strawberry Smash muffins!
