Agatha-nominated and Amazon bestselling author Edith Maxwell joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the third in her Local Foods Mystery series, FARMED AND DANGEROUS.
Edith spent time as an organic farmer and uses that experience in the series. We discuss the Community Supported Agriculture business model Cam uses in FARMED AND DANGEROUS.
Edith is writing a lot these days. She shares what she’s writing, and which author names she’s using for the different series.
Edith describes her writing style as “writing into the headlights.”
From the Publisher:
Cam is finding the New Year just as hectic as the old one. Her sometimes rocky relationship with Chef Jake Ericsson is in a deep freeze, she’s struggling to provide the promised amount of food to the subscribers in her first winter CSA, and her new greenhouse might just collapse from the weight of the snow. Supplying fresh ingredients for a dinner at the local assisted living facility seems like the least of her worries—until one of the elderly residents dies after eating some of her produce.
Cantankerous Bev Montgomery had a lot of enemies, from an unscrupulous real estate developer who coveted her land to an aggrieved care provider fed up with her verbal abuse. But while the motives in this case may be plentiful, the trail of poisoned produce leads straight back to Cam. Not even her budding romance with police detective Pete Pappas will keep him from investigating her.
As the suspects gather, a blizzard buries the scene of the crime under a blanket of snow, leaving Cam stranded in the dark with a killer who gives new meaning to the phrase “dead of winter.”
