Animal, Vegetable, Murder is a charming and laugh-out-loud start to Judy Dailey's new mystery series set on an urban farm in Seattle. The aptly named Sunny Day Burnett -- a passionate gardener -- turns amateur sleuth to save the farm. She deftly deals with rogue chickens, wayward pole beans, and a killer with a surprisingly sympathetic agenda. Fix yourself a bowl of fresh organic veggies and enjoy. Sunny Day Burnett juggles geriatric chickens' corpses, and a cranky Scottish policeman in this charming mystery set on an urban farm in Seattle. Gathering eggs for breakfast, Sunny discovers a neighbor face down and dead in a patch of Swiss chard. Worse yet, the murdered man is clutching a photograph of Sunny's recently deceased husband wearing little more than a pink feather boa and red stilettos. Stunned, Sunny hides the picture -- and her husband's appalling fashion sense -- from the police, but she can't hide herself from a killer more voracious than a gray garden slug. Soon long-buried secrets are popping up like dandelions. Sunny must resolve her past if she wants a future. But time is running out and the day of harvest is near.

Poorly written and rather beyond belief. Some interest in terms of local references, and character development, but not much else. These thoughts held by whole book group.
