Wendy Tyson“Bitter Harvest” is the second book in the Greenhouse Mystery Series by Wendy Tyson. In an interview with Wendy Tyson, she explained that she and her husband are avid organic gardeners and they’ve turned our small suburban lot outside of Philly into a micro-farm.
As the story opens, the city of Winsome is preparing for their Oktoberfest Celebration. But when the town’s pub owner is killed in a freak accident, Megan believes it isn’t an accident and tries to get the police to investigate, but ends up investigating herself.
The Greenhouse Mystery Series offers fascinating characters. Megan Sawyer is an environmental attorney who leaves her Chicago law firm to return to her roots in the fictional small town of Winsome, Pennsylvania with the help of her grandmother. Wendy has said that this series showcases strong women. More women are becoming farmers and both Megan and her grandmother are smart, strong and resourceful characters. Both have some emotional baggage, but they have enough strength to overcome those obstacles. There is also the sexy Scottish veterinarian whose kindness and gentleness with animals touched my heart as well as Megan’s. “Bitter Harvest” also features Ophelia Dilworth, the PR representative that is coordinating the Oktoberfest. The secondary characters, including the animals, have intriguing back stories that add to the richness of the story.
The setting also plays a significant role in the story. You really feel like you become a part of this community in your reading.
Wendy Tyson is one of my favorite authors. I included her book “Killer Image” in my list of Best Books for Book Clubs in 2014. I also included her in my list of Authors who deserve a larger audience. This book goes on sale March 7, 2017. I recommend reading it.
