War and Peas is the 8th in the Jane Jeffry series by Jill Churchill. I love this series. War and Peas is about a Pea museum that the girls are helping get ready to move. Once again, I did not figure out who did it until Jane explained it at the end. I can't wait to start the next book.
Another tongue in cheek mystery about Churchill's popular Jane Jeffry. Fun!
From back cover: Wealthy old Auguste Caspar Snellen, the legendary Pea King, is long gone, but his greatest legacy lives on: the Snellen Museum, an institution dedicated to the glorification of local lore and legumes. But at this years annual Pea Festival, the museum sustains a terrible loss when its able, innovative director, Regina Price Palmer, is shot to death during a noisy reenactment of a Civil War battle.
Suburban single mom Jane Jeffrey was a costumed participant in the deadly pageant. Now her part-time work at the museum has put Jane and best friend Shelley Nowack in the midst of a veritable podful of murder suspects. And it's up to Jane and Shelley to determine who fatally beaned poor Regina--before another victim is planted six feet under.
I enjoyed this story revolving around a pea museum and an annual pea festival, where someone is shot during a Civil War reenactment. The story moved quickly and I didn't get bored, as I have been lately with some of the previous books in this series.
