Because those are very critical details in a murder mystery......not!
The love interests were like a bad replay of the Syfy TV series "Haven". I honestly found Philippe somewhat smarmy and uninteresting rather than romantic and melancholy. The murder mystery was shallow and the solution was clearly not very important, since it was telegraphed way in advance - and in case you missed the hint the first time, it gets repeated different ways, none of them subtle, a number of times through to the ending.
Abby's alternately wounded by a previous love interest who walked out on her, but apparently easily convinces herself into sexual interest with any reasonably good looking man who looks into her eyes earnestly. Bleccchh.
No wonder the dog doesn't obey her. She's a dimwit, for all her vaunted detecting skills. Stick with the chickens, Abby, they're more your speed.
One good thing... when skipping recipes and almanac wisdom at the beginning and end of each chapter, the story was blessedly short.
This is a totally undemanding novel, fluffy.
creative, well drawn, colorful characters.
The setting of the farmette was a perfect place for
the main character to live. The vivid description made
the reader feel as if they were there.
The beginning of each chapter related wisdom from
the Henny Penney Farmers Almanac. The end of each
chapter had either ways to farm the bees, the flowers
needed to attract the bees, the type of honey each bee
produced or mouthwatering recipes.
Besides the bees, the farmers had fruit trees, vegetables
and chickens plus Houndini the crowing rooster.
Sugar who was the deceased chef's dog, that Abby,
former police officer turned farmer adopted added
flavor to the story.
