Have a Deadly New Year is the 4th book in the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series by Lynn Cahoon. It is more of a long short story or a novella, and it might not be the actual 4th book since it's intended to be a fun caper around the holidays this year before the next full-length mystery comes out in early 2020. I am psyched given Lynn Cahoon published the title of the upcoming release just this week! But let's focus on this one first...

The series takes place in Idaho. Angie runs a new resta

This new Farm-To-Fork novella is an exciting read. I love the comraderie of Angie Turner’s County Seat restaurant’s staff—What a great group of people to work with and to have your back in any type of crisis.

Catering an event for an old school friend of Felicia’s (Angie’s partner) on New Year’s in a private, secluded cabin; the County Seat gang is horrified when one of the guests is stabbed! Then, everyone realizes that they’re trapped in the cabin with a killer. Sticking together, A

This is a short novella that gives readers a quick visit with Angie Turner and the rest of the characters from the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. This was a quick, fun, enjoyable read. In my opinion, Ms. Cahoon writes terrific novellas for her series. She has created such wonderful characters that I enjoy any chance I get to visit with them. Angie and her employees are hired to cater an event for an old friend of Felicia's who also happens to be a famous rock star. Unfortunately, murder just seems ...more

I am new to series and while it was short, I didn’t connect with the characters nor the story. While the sentences at times were a bit choppy, overall, it was a good novella it just didn’t leave me wanting to continue from the beginning.

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and author for an advanced copy.

Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing Corporation for a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

In this Farm-to-Fork Novella, Lynn Cahoon has once again brought together our favourite characters from Angie Turner’s County Seat restaurant. When her business partner Felicia Williams accepts a catering job for an old friend – Cliff Henry – lead singer of the Postal Mutiny band, little do they know that they will be in for a New Year’s Eve that they will not soon forget.

This is the first book I've read in this series. I enjoyed this just as much as the series I usually read -Tourist Trap Mysteries. While I didn't feel lost reading this, I would like to get more of the background on the characters. They mystery kept me guessing and I did like the main characters.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for my eARC in exchange for an honest review. I'll be looking for others in this series.

What could be better than ending the year with an exclusive catering gig and starting the new year off in a gorgeous mountain home in Sun Valley? Well, maybe not finding one of the guests dead at the dinner table, but that's the way the soufflé falls when you work with the County Seat gang! Once again they are on the hunt for the killer, but this time it is imperative that they find the killer quickly since they are most likely sleeping in the same house as they are all snowed in together.

The County Line crew is catering a private party for a Rock Band. While Felicia grew up with the rocker who owns the house, Angie can’t bring herself to trust him or anyone in the party when another member of the band is murdered.

A short novella to tide me over until the next entry in the series. Always welcome when you’re stalking the author’s page to see when the next full length book is going to be released. Love all of Lynn Cahoon’s series, she is a talented writer.

I enjoyed this short story. It was the perfect length. It's fast-paced and the crew is all there cooking up good food to a rock band reuniting at a retreat. Until something goes wrong and one of the band members is murdered with a drumstick. They sent to sleuthing since they're snowed in and just an the last minute are able to get a confession from the killer with nifty questioning. #HaveADeadlyNewYear #NetGalley

I've read every Lynn Cahoon novella and this was my favorite yet! I find you're often left wanting more when reading these mini mysteries, but having Angie and her County Seat crew trapped in a mansion, in a blizzard, with only 6 guests as suspects to a shocking death ,helped to keep the story, tight and captivating. The suspense builds as the hours passed trapped in the home with drunken rock stars, drugged up girlfriends, slimy managers who are unpredictable and self absorbed. Will Angie and h ...more

A great novella in the Farm to Fork mystery series from Lynn Cahoon. I have loved the other books in this series and this was a quick and fun adventure with Angie and the rest of the staff from The County Seat farm-to-table restaurant.

Angie and her friends are away for a catering job/work retreat. The plan is to spend the first day catering for Felicia's friend and his band and then spend the rest of the week at the singer's beautiful house planning the new menu for The County Seat. But when th

I was disappointed but perhaps it was because this book is a novella and I had not read preceding books in the series. I can usually visualize characters in the novels I'm reading but I found the characters were just names, cardboard figures rather than "real" people. While the background sounded intriguing, it wasn't developed either. The story/mystery ends very abruptly with someone confessing.

I did look at other rave reviews but I'm sorry to say I can't agree with them or recommend this book

This is a novella in the Farm to Fork series and it was awesome! Angie and Felicia own County Seat Restaurant. There is a famous band in town and one of the members, Cliff, is friends with Felicia. Cliff asked them to provide meals while they are in town and they can use his resort cabin for the rest of the week. There is some drama with the band members and then one of them is injured and dies. This book (and the series) has everything I like about cozy mysteries - likable characters, an intrig ...more

Have A Deadly New Year is a short (88 page) book by Lynn Cahoon. It is part of the Farm to Fork series. Angie and her crew are spending a week over New Year’s Eve in Sun Valley. After they cater a dinner for a rock band, they will have the home to themselves. But a murder in the house and a snow storm make prisoners of Angie, her crew and the band. This is a good, quick read. I enjoy Lynn Cahoon books and am always excited to find one I haven’t read. I have never been disappointed.

I have not read the previous books, but this was a nice quick taste of the series.
A solid cozy with an interesting whodunit.

The Reading Writer- Angie Simmons
This is a super fun novella in the Angie Turner/ Farm to Fork series by Lynn Cahoon.

While catering a New Year’s event at a secluded cabin, after a guest is stabbed, Angie and her staff must find the killer.

If you love the series, Lynn’s books, or cozy mysteries, this is a great, fast read.

Many thanks to Kensington Books and NetGally for providing me with a digital ARC.
