This week's book comes from the October Cozy Featured Author, Peg Cochran. Berried Secrets is the first book in her Cranberry Cove series.

"What the . . ." Jeff said.

They all stopped working and watched in grim fascination as a body, its clothes completely sodden and its face bloated with water, slowly rose to the surface.

(Chapter 2)

Series: Cranberry Cove #1

It’s cranberry picking time—in an all-new mystery series from the national bestselling author of the Gourmet De-Lite Mysteries…

When Monica Albertson comes to Cranberry Cove—a charming town on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan—to help her half-brother Jeff on his cranberry farm, the last thing she expects to harvest is a dead body.

It seems that Sam Culbert, who ran the farm while Jeff was deployed overseas, had some juicy secrets that soon prove fatal, and Jeff is ripe for the picking as a prime suspect. Forming an uneasy alliance with her high-maintenance stepmother, Monica has her hands full trying to save the farm while searching for a killer. Culbert made plenty of enemies in the quaint small town…but which one was desperate enough to kill?

Includes recipes.

Sounds like an interesting book. I love dried cranberries and cranberry season.

Beth: Not a fan of cranberries myself, but it was a good start to a new series, and definitely appropriate to the time of year.
