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. And 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. As the suspects mount, a blizzard buries the crime scene under a blanket of snow, leaving Cam stranded in the dark with a killer who gives new meaning to the phrase "dead of winter." Praise for the Local Foods Mysteries "There are plenty of farming-based cozies on the market today, but this one stands out." --Booklist "A most enjoyable look at organic farming." --Kirkus Reviews
