“Summer in Deep Lakes sprouts a homegrown murder on the O’Connor farm. Frankie Champagne’s hunt for clues lands her deep in sheep doo-doo, especially after rare stones surface in unexpected places. Crime-solving is no picnic for the baker/vintner as she hops from farm to field to bakery, trying to keep up with the tourist season and track a killer, too.” – Amazon
I’ve had the pleasure of reading the Deep Lakes Cozy Mysteries by Joy Ribar from book one, and I truly mean it when I say each book keeps getting better… and Deep Dark Secrets was really good to start!
In Deep Green Envy, Ribar is able to combine lots of diverse and well developed characters with the wines and baked goods that make Wisconsin so unique. As well as detailed descriptions of the countryside that will make readers want to visit Central Wisconsin. And she does it all with the panache that makes it seem effortless.
Add in a crime with lots of suspects and a few red herrings and you are in for a treat. Who knew Wisconsin could create such opulent wines and authors? Anyone who’s read Joy Ribar’s Deep Lakes Cozy Mysteries, that’s who!
