    A feisty grandma makes this Fresh-Baked Mystery a fun read.

    As the Thanksgiving Holiday nears, Phyllis Newsom is happy to be spending the time with her grandson Bobby while his parents are visiting his dying maternal grandfather. She is especially looking forward to showing him the Harvest Festival that she is helping to arrange. On opening day, Phyliss' friend Carolyn notices one of the scarecrows has been moved to a different locale; she looks closer only to realize she is staring at a dead person, realtor Logan Powell.

    The subsequent autopsy confirms Logan was murdered. Suspicion falls on his wife Dana as witnesses state they saw the couple fighting. Further evidence leads to Dana's arrest on a first degree murder charge. Phyliss is positive that Dana is innocent and at the bail hearing she tells the judge she will keep the accused at her house until the Grand Jury convenes. Dana explains to Phyliss that she was positive that Logan cheated on her so confronted him and that he was involved in a lucrative real state deal. Phyliss investigates because she knows her friend is innocent but doubts the authorities will look any further.

    In this age of distant social networking, it is fascinating to see the close knit community of small town Weatherford, Texas. Phyliss has solved murder cases before (see Killer Crab Cakes and The Christmas Cookie Killer) that baffles the cops who she often gets to talk to her about the case as they wonder how she puts together the puzzle pieces. This feisty grandma makes this Fresh-Baked Mystery a fun read.

    Recommend highly!

    I love this series. I can relate to being in the retirement age and trying to keep myself busy so I read alot. I started out with one book in this series and got so absorbed that I purchased the rest of the series just to keep up with the civilian detectives. The recipes are an added bonus. Can't wait to try them if not all but maybe most of them. I highly recommend this series. Very humorous at times and scary.

    This once also has some interesting twists to it--I really am enjoying this entire series. It's fun to see how Mrs. Newsom manages to reason things out--and how she takes a lot of different angles in the process--showing that it's not that easy to do and that even though she knows there's something there, just like a lot of us, it's kind of in the back of her mind and just doesn't want to jump out and let her know what it is until near the end. It's fun to see how as the series progresses that the chief of police even starts to discuss things with her and sees things through her eyes instead of asking her to stay out of things.

    Great fun, great recipes, great sleuth. Yummy fun!

    It's Thanksgiving in Weatherford, Texas and the residents of the town are celebrating their very first Harvest Festival. Retired schoolteacher and often-time sleuth Phyllis Newsom is taking care of the apple of her eye, grandson Bobby, while his parents go out of town for the holiday. But babysitting for Bobby doesn't stop Phyllis from baking her special pumpkin, cheesecake muffins for the Harvest Festival. Nor do her grandmotherly responsibilities prevent her from finding another dead body disguised as one of the event's scarecrows.
    The dead body belongs to festival organizer Logan Powell and Phyllis discovers that in life Logan's body was very busy indeed. He'd been having affairs with at least four of the town's young, eligible women.
    Phyllis tries to stay out of the case-sheriff's orders-but when the autopsy reveals that Logan died right after eating one of Phyllis's pumpkin muffins, well, what's a good cook like Phyllis to do but jump in and solve the case?
    Great fun, great recipes, great sleuth. Yummy fun!
