It's time for the annual Blueberry Festival and Candy is up to her elbows in pies, muffins, jams, tie-dyed t-shirts, syrup and more when the news reaches her that swimming legend and native son Jock Larson has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff. Is his death and accident or murder? But there is another death to follow and this one sets Candy on a path to find the real killer. Just about everyone in town had a reason to kill Sapphire Vine, but who did?
Local handyman Ray Hutchins is accused of the crime, but Candy Tremont review the host of suspects and wonder if the two deaths could somehow be related. This leads them from suspect to suspect and eventually to the actual killer.
Candy and Maggie are bold and intrepid, if not a little reckless, as they move the finger of guilt from one person to another. I still enjoyed the books and I am desperate for a piece of blueberry pie!
Town in a Blueberry Jam is the first in the series, but there are many more involving lobsters, strawberries cinnamon swirls and other tasty treats.
