Still liking this series. Well-developed and interesting characters, intriguing plot, a bit of romance, fun family whom I would like to know in person. Not too obvious a villain but possible to figure out if you pay attention. Enjoy!

Review title: Sweet Sleuthing.
If one of your relatives is ever in a "jam" and you want to "preserve" his or her good name, just follow the "Crops and Robbers" protagonist's lead and you may unearth the truth. Just "spread" the "jelly" that you are searching for real "fruit" and fresh leads, and before you know it the harvest will come in. This was an intriguing mystery with enough suspects to keep you in suspense; you will not guess what turns up at the farmers market besides turnips, onions, cabbage, and other fresh produce. A fascinating storyline, an engaging protagonist, and a South Carolina backdrop are sure to have your mind reeling with the possibilities of prime suspects and crop culprits. *A great mystery, you will enjoy solving it. *A wonderful escape from reality for a weekend.
