Strangled Eggs and Ham: 06/22/22
Strangled Eggs and Ham by Maddie Day and Laural Merlington (Narrator) is the sixth volume in the Country Store mystery series. An unscrupulous developer wants to put in a massive luxury resort in the picturesque hills of South Lick. Sure it would bring in jobs but the effects to the environment and traffic could be catastrophic. Then to make things worse one of the most vocal protestors is murdered at the proposed development site.
Unfortunately for Robbie, the murder victim was one of her B&B guests. Now she's facing the possibility of more negative publicity just when her business is taking off. Can she solve the murder before she starts losing business?
I've had a run recently where the murderer is obvious to me from the very get go. Strangled Eggs and Ham is another one of those books. The bulk of this book is built from the protest and legal pushback to stop the development. With the focus being on city hall's part in the development (or in stopping it), I'm reminded of a book I read last year, Farm to Trouble by Amanda Flower (2021).
The next book in the series is Nacho Average Murder (2020)
