Murder at the Mushroom Festival by Janet Finsilver


There’s a corpse among the chanterelles!

Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast manager Kelly Jackson is hosting a cooking class during the week of the Mushroom Festival to attract guests, not drama. But soon after she finishes foraging for an edible mushroom species on sacred Native American land, a local newspaper reporter gets shot dead at the same site. With suspicions spreading like fungi in the quaint Northern Californian community over the culprit’s identity, Kelly and a savvy gang of sleuthing seniors known as the “Silver Sentinels” must uncover the truth about the secluded property before a tricky killer prepares another lethal surprise…

In Murder at the Mushroom, Kelly, the manager at Redwood Cove B&B, is happy to host a cooking class during the Mushroom Festival. Visitors are arriving to the festival, and plenty of mushroom related activities are on the schedule. During festival week, a local newspaper reporter is found shot dead. Kelly and some sleuthing seniors look into who is behind his death.

Murder at the Mushroom is the fourth book in the Kelly Jackson Mystery series. This is the first book in the series that I have read, but I plan on reading the first three too. A cute cozy mystery with a charming bed and breakfast in a small town.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
