Murder at the Fortune Teller's Table by Janet Finsilver is the third book in the Kelly Jackson Mystery series. This is one of the best cozy mysteries I have read in a long time. The book easily stands on its own (although I am now planning to read the previous two). Kelly is the manager of a bed and breakfast. She and the crime solving group, the Silver Sentinels, are soon caught up in a mystery when two accidental deaths seem anything but accidental. I loved the setting and especially the characters. The book is very well written, and the mystery kept me interested until the end. I am happy to have discovered this wonderful cozy mystery series!
Never Out of Season by Rob Dunn is a fascinating look at modern agriculture and its problems. The lack of diversity may soon lead to a collapse of the foods we depend on. The book was well researched and covered a variety of topics all related to agriculture. I learned about everything from mealybugs to the vast consequences of drought in Syria. Although a serious subject, I found the book well worth my time.
