One Potato, Two Potato, Dead is the third installment in the Farm-to-Fork mystery series! Lynn Cahoon is a wonderful mystery writer and I am always anxious for her next novel (especially within this series). She makes her characters lovable, tough, and charming. With that being said, I truly love this series and think this is the perfect addition. While I wish there were more recipes included (I love to replicate them) I

Angie Turner is settling into her "quiet" country existence outside of Boise. I say that tongue in cheek as there have been far more murders happening, the investigations in which she has somehow been involved, in this small Idaho town just since she settled here. Regardless, she plows forward with her friend and partner, Felicia with their "Farm to Fork" concept restaurant. They imagine creative dishes and special offerings for their clientele.

In support of Felicia's mission-driven boyfriend,

Lynn Cahoon has written another great addition to the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series set in River Vista, Idaho. Chef Angie Turner's restaurant, The County Seat, is running smoothly. The staff is really like a family that eats together before each meal that they serve and really care about each other. They even have a work day away from the restaurant when they go prepare a meal for a homeless mission center in nearby Boise. Angie's best friend and business partner, Felicia, gets them signed up to s ...more

A man posing as a chef and teaching in a local culinary school is murdered, and one of Angie's employees becomes a suspect because she went to the man's home. Angie discovers the man appears to have no past and is unable to validate what they'd been told about the man's prior life. Although I lacked familiarity with the characters someone who read the series from book one would possess, I did not find it that difficult to distinguish identities. The Idaho setting is a nice change from other cozy ...more

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead is light, relaxing story with a smidgen of mystery tossed in. If you have not read the previous A Farm-to-Fork Mystery novels, you will not be lost. The author provides the necessary information for new readers. Angie Turner is not herself in this story. She is moody, short-tempered and negative (it is off-putting). Angie has her farm with Mabel (the hen), Precious (the goat) and Dom (St. Bernard). I am particularly fond of Dom (though I could do without the endless ...more

4.5 Stars. After a couple of rather grisly crime novels, One Potato, Two Potato, Dead was a refreshing change. This cozy series is exactly what I expect from author Lynn Cahoon. Her characters are smart, tough yet charming, her murders are quick and not gory or grisly (this one is a poisoning) and her sleuthing and detecting is usually questioning, snooping and deducing, not heading into seedy areas where you put your life on the line. Of course, there is a recipe included at the end of the book ...more

This is the third book in an enjoyable series. I'm enjoying the farm to table aspect of the book. Angie and Felicia are very likable characters and it has been fun watching their dream take hold and grow into a thriving business. I also enjoy the secondary characters. Each one serves a purposes and together they make a well rounded addition to each book. This book was a bit off for me. The timing seemed a bit slow in terms of the pacing and progression of the story. While there was a mystery to ...more

In this installment in the Farm to Fork Mystery Series, one of Angie's employees is a suspect in the murder of a professor in town. Angie knows the girl is innocent and steps in to find out what she can about the dead man and the investigation.

The mystery storyline in this one was interesting, but what I liked best about the book is the relationships that have been established between Angie and her work crew. They have become a family, and their interactions and relationships are touching to se

Another really good installment in the "Farm-to-Fork" mystery series by Lynn Cahoon; I have enjoyed how each book has developed the characters and finally I feel like we have a cohesive group of characters that work together well and are fun to read about. Angie and Felicia are two great characters and I hope that in future books we get to see a bit more of Felicia's life as well as Angie's.

The mystery was pretty good in this one - it took me awhile to guess who the killer was [and I did, but i

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!

First off, yet again I haven't read the rest of the series, but they are in my to-read list. I did enjoy this one, but felt like there were a few points where maybe having more background I would have understood things better, such as the neighbours being out of town, and why the main character is in a relationship with Ian, who seems like a selfish and rather unlikable love interest. Maybe I wouldn't think that if I had m

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead by Lynn Cahoon is the 3rd book in the Farm to Fork Mystery series, and another great addition to the series. Once I started this book I could not stop reading it. It was a quick read that kept me guessing. I look forward to the next book in the series. I recommend this book for all cozy mystery book lovers, you will not be disappointed.

I reviewed a digital arc provided by NetGalley and Kensington Publishing. Thank you.

I really enjoyed this book I got from Netgalley. It was the first book I have read of Lynn Cahoon's but it won't be my last. This cozy mystery is set in Idaho and the MCs are two friends that have opened a farm-to-fork restaurant. One of the friends, Angie Turner, also tends to like to snoop into local murders to help her friends out. In this one, she's helping to clear the name of her dishwasher Hope in the murder of a local visiting professor at the University - but things are not as they appe ...more

First let me say I received this book as part of a Goodreads Giveaway for my honest review.

This is not a bad book as cozies go, but it was so boring to me. It took a lot of effort to finish and since I was obligated to give a review, finish I did. So much time spent on mundane activities like feeding the animals, driving to Boise, taking a shower, making breakfast. Those activities could have been mentioned in one sentence. I read all three books in the series back to back, so that might have b

Potatoes can be incredibly boring as food, and this book is even worse. Life moves slowly along while cooking, oh, and by the way there was a murder. No suspense and not a very interesting story.

ONE POTATO, TWO POTATO, DEAD is the third book in the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series by Lynn Cahoon. This cozy is set in rural Idaho which introduces the reader to country living. The protagonist, Angie Turner, lives in her grandmother’s old house and is raising a goat named Precious, a chicken named Mabel, and a Saint Bernard named Dom. The author provides great characters to support Angie and I loved the way she’s given the animals their own personalities too. I especially love Dom and his antics ...more

I think I might not be a cozy mystery reader. This is the third or fourth cozy mystery I've read and I've been underwhelmed by all of them. I feel bad that I won this through a Goodreads giveaway and have to post this review.

The story had too much boring activity. The characters were uninteresting and flat. Maybe it's referred to in the previous books but why did the author keep mentioning the next door neighbors who were out of town the whole time? I started thinking the killer was hiding out i

Another excellent visit with Angela and Felicia as well as their entire crew of friends! I would so love to visit their restaurant if only it really existed, sounds delish! This story was very well plotted with the youngest and most naïve of their staff falling under suspicion after one of her professors at the culinary school ends up dead. Once again Angela is on the hunt to find out who the real killer is as she feels she must protect her young friend. The plot is quite entertaining and has se ...more
