"Fruit Of All Evil" Review

The book I choose to read this month for the "Just For Fun Reading Challenge" was a cozy mystery: "Fruit Of All Evil" by Paige Shelton.
Becca Robins sells her farm-made jams and preserves at the local farmers' market to make a living. But when a local lovely decides to tie the knot at the same market, someone else decides to make a killing...
With all the sweet spreads she turns out, Becca should be used to having her hands full of sticky situations. So when her best friend and fellow market vendor, Linda, asks her to be maid of honor at her wedding, Becca figures she can handle the extra duties. After all, setting up a wedding with a farmers' market theme should be a piece of cake.
But when Linda's future mother-in-law ends up murdered before the "I dos" are even exchanged, both the nuptials and the fate of a missing local merchant are on the line. And only Becca has the down-home know-how to shut the lid on a canny killer...
My Thoughts:
The sounds and smells of the farmer's market come to life through the pages... that is if you enjoy visiting 'farmers' markets.' Each page leads to more surprises as the ending draws ever closer. 
I found this a delightful and fun book to read, I even caught myself laughing out loud a few times. This is the second book in the 'Farmers' Market Mystery'. I didn't read the first one, but this one stands on it's own. I enjoyed it so much I gave it 4****.
I won this book from Lori at Dollycas's Thoughts in one of her book giveaways. Thanks Dolly. 
It is now a part of my personal library.
