This is the fifth book in the series and the first one I have read. Zennia is delighted to meet an ex-lover, Birch Kellar at the organic food store. The next morning Birch is found dead in Zennia’s garden. Grief has consumed Zennia completely and she is unable to handle the cooking at the farm. Dana takes over the cooking in addition to her regular role. Dana has no known cooking abilities so she is learning on the job. Trying to get Zennia back to cook Dana takes Zennia to the. commune where Birch had been living. There are problems there and Dana needs to find an answer before she becomes a victim. I will look for other books in the series to learn about the farm. I was able to understand the book as a stand alone.
Disclosure: I received a free copy from Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions are my own.
