This is a great cozy.

Dana goes back home to Blossom Valley to help her mother through the grieving process after losing her father to a heart attack. Her mom finds her a job at a Health Spa Farm run by a kind woman, Esther, from her mother's grief group.

On the grand opening weekend, Dana finds a murdered guest in one of the cabins. Uh oh...looks like bad news for the spa as guests start to check out. Dana must find the murderer to save the spa and her job. There are lots of suspects, from the diverse staff to the many guests. Anyone could have had a motive.

I liked the characters in this book. Dana was not a sap who took a lot of guff, and she was funny. The only thing I didn't like was that she thought her sister was so good at getting men (unlike her), when really, she seemed a bit slutty...going after shmucks and ex cons. I would not like to think that a smart woman would think highly of a sister who did this. But that was really the only big flaw in my mind...after all, this is a cozy, and they are not known for any true reality.

Maybe I have been reading too many cozies. This book did not speak to me the way I like. The characters were not memorable. The organic menu was strange enough to run off even the most dedicated vegan.
