Crops and Robbers is the third book in the Farmer's Market series and even though I had not read the first two books in the series when I started this one, I was able to jump right in and I had no trouble following the plot. Love that!
Paige Shelton writes a great mystery - Crops and Robbers was very well thought out. Near the end of the book it seemed obvious who'd dunnit, but I knew from my cozy mystery experience that it's never who it seems to be. And it certainly wasn't! I really enjoyed the love triangle aspect of the novel - I don't come across love triangles too often in my cozy reading.
A must read for cozy lovers, especially those who like cozies about food. Crops and Robbers includes some delicious sounding recipes at the back of the book.
