About the book:

Angie Turner hopes her new farm-to-table restaurant can be a fresh start in her old hometown in rural Idaho. But when a goat dairy farmer is murdered, Angie must turn the tables on a bleating black sheep . . .

With three weeks until opening night for their restaurant, the County Seat, Angie and her best friend and business partner Felicia are scrambling to line up local vendors—from the farmer’s market to the goat dairy farm of Old Man Moss. Fortunately, the cantankerous Moss takes a shine to Angie, as does his kid goat Precious. So when Angie hears the bloodcurdling news of foul play at the dairy farm, she jumps in to mind the man’s livestock and help solve the murder. One thing’s for sure, there’s no whey Angie’s going to let some killer get her goat . . .

Who Moved My Goat Cheese? by Lynn Cahoon is the first book in the all new cozy Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. This is another great start to a cozy series for the foodies and animals lovers out there.

Angie has moved back to her grandmother’s farm in rural Idaho after her passing where she and her friend and business partner Felicia plan to open a new themed restaurant. The idea of the restaurant is the new concept of farm to table where the ladies plan to use ingredients from all of the local farms.

After a bit of a snag getting the locals to cooperate Angie finds herself meeting with Old Man Moss, a goat diary farmer, to try to secure the use of his cheese for the restaurant which seems to go well. However the next day Angie gets a visit from the local sheriff after he’s found murdered with her seeming to be the last person to see him.

Who Moved My Goat Cheese? is a lovely start to what seems to be a really solid cozy series with all those things I’ve come to expect. There’s strong female lead who finds herself caught up in a murder investigation leading her to do her own snooping, a nice cast of cozy critters being set on a farm, and for those that love the reads with a side of some lovely food talk this one had plenty along with a recipe at the end.

The author did a wonderful job fleshing out the characters and setting up this rural setting to bring in plenty of suspects and theories to keep a reader guessing. Along with the murder mystery this one seems to have a touch of a budding romance for the female lead so it will also be interesting to see how it continues in the series too. In the end I found myself looking forward to reading more in this series in the future.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

      • Girl, it was rough for the end of February and publication dates! Phew!😵 I was badly behind too on reviews. I really wish there was a way they could type themselves sometimes but I am trying to start having more fun with doing them again. I am trying to be organized!😵 This is a hard feat for me!😰

        • I may be in the same boat come the end of March if I don’t get my rear in gear. LOL I still want some thought reading machine because I swear my reviews sound great in my head but as soon as I sit down to type I forget it all. 🙂

            • Thanks hon I try, but I still think I sound much better in my head while I’m reading or just after finishing but when I sit to write it all slips away. LOL Oh and then you hit publish and some thoughts come back right after they are up… that’s fun too. 🙂
