Murder at the Blueberry Festival
by Hannah, Darci






When the town of Beacon Harbor is plagued by pranks leading up to the blueberry festival, and then ending in murder, bakery-cafe owner Lindsey Bakewell and her beau, a former SEAL, dive into this juicy mystery. Original.





Darci Hannah grew up in the northwest suburbs of a Chicago, is a graduate of Indiana University, and currently lives in a small town in Michigan with her husband, three sons and two dogs. She has lived around the Great Lakes all her life and considers them a source of inspiration. When she's not engaged in a rollicking family adventure, walking her dogs, or working at the historic Howell Carnegie District Library, she's either baking up a storm or hard at work on her next Beacon Bakeshop Mystery.

Water balloons, marauding goats, and a pie full of mice are just a few of the pranks that precede a murder. Lindsey Bakewell's bakeshop has been slammed during the town blueberry festival, but with help from her family; her best friend, fashion influencer Kennedy Kapoor; and her boyfriend, retired Navy SEAL Rory Campbell, she's doing her best. In fact, she's on the festival committee, holding a pie-eating contest, and modeling in her mother's fashion show along with Wellington, her Newfoundland. Trouble begins with an array of stolen For Sale signs on a realtor's lawn and water balloons thrown at the mayor's float. Even worse, the blueberry pie bake-off is ruined when one pie turns out to be full of live mice, the fashion show and the beer tent are overrun by a herd of goats, and artist Grayson Smythe's glass sculpture is destroyed. Though the pranks have drawn growing crowds to the festival, the jokes sour when Welly awakens Lindsey and Rory in the dead of night and they look offshore to spot a Viking boat that turns out to contain two passengers: a white goat, and the body of the goat's owner, Lars Jorgenson, who found all the pranks but this one hilarious. Lindsey, no stranger to murder, soon entangles her friends and family in sleuthing when Lars' death is traced to poison berries baked in a blueberry pie. The goat, who gets a fashion makeover from Kennedy, proves instrumental in solving the crime. You'll never see the end coming in this delightfully zany tale.
