I am so excited to a stop on
authors Joyce & Jim Lavene's
book tour for
GIVE 'EM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT
Book 1 in the Pumpkin Patch Mystery series
First in a New Series Richmond attorney Sarah Tucker returns to sell her family’s abandoned farm in Misty River, Virginia despite unanswered questions about her grandparents’ disappearance sixteen years earlier. Sarah was only twelve when she went to visit and found her grandparents had vanished. No amount of searching has brought answers. Now Sarah is faced with other issues when a man is killed who claimed to have information about what happened to her grandparents. She learns of a Confederate chest of gold that is said to be buried on the property, and treasure hunters who are willing to do anything to get their hands on it. Were her grandparents murdered for the gold? Sarah can’t sell the land and go back to her life until she has answers. But the cost of the answers may be her life. Includes farm-fresh recipes!
I get very excited each time authors Joyce and Jim Lavene have a new book out. But a whole new series? Yes please! I dived into GIVE ‘EM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT (don’t you love that title) with great enthusiasm and it continued to grow with each page.
There is a mystery within the mystery of this story. One that deals with protagonist Sarah Tucker’s missing grandparents. It’s going to be fun to learn more about that storyline in future installments. As for the main mystery in this book, it was done perfectly. It was very intense trying to figure out who the killer was. Something I never learned until the reveal, because I didn’t have a clue. It was brilliant!
These skilled writers have done it again. They’ve penned a book that had me completely transfixed. Their style of writing feels as though it was so effortless to them. (I bet they would say different). It just flows across the pages.
Fans of the Lavene’s Peggy Lee Garden Mysteries will be thrilled by a fun cross over. And the Missing Pieces series got a nod as well.
Brava and Bravo Joyce and Jim Lavene. You have another hit on your hands!
