Digging Up Daisy by Sherry Lynn

3 stars for what this book ‘could’ have been. It is an interesting setup: Kinsley has a thriving landscaping business in a hoity-toity part of Maine where her aunt runs a bed and breakfast. When she digs up a shoe connected to a murder, Kinsley fears her aunt will be drawn into the investigation so she ‘digs’ into solving the crime. The scene setting and landscape descriptions in the book are terrific and really drew me into the story…which is where it went off the rails. This is the first book in the series so there are the usual problems with introducing the reader to everyone and setting up plot points. Kinsley is such an interesting character and the landscape/gardening twist is really good and something we don’t see enough in cozies. But the murder was so convoluted as to who did it and why which made the ending just dumb. BUT, having said that, I can see where Sherry Lynn is going with this and I think she has a good foundation to build the series so I will read the next book when it comes out. I was given a copy-this is my opinion.
