Day Burnett is trying to get on with her life. Her husband
Ken was killed in an auto accident several months ago.
Sunny has turned the property left to her by her grandmother
into a working farm. She has chickens and veggies galore.
The gated community is not thrilled with the changes
she has made. What she didn’t need was a dead
man near her wood pile.
police think that Sunny might be involved with the murder.
(This is the woman who is too tender hearted to kill
one of her chickens). To the rescue comes her neighbor,
Horace Pennington III, who just happens to be an attorney.
He keeps the police from ruining the “farmland”
and turning it into a swamp. Sunny withholds evidence
– she can’t bear to show the police the
photo of her husband Ken in drag.
to ponder: Are the poker club members being targeting
for murder? Why was the dead man clutching a torn photo
of Ken? Was Ken’s death really an accident? Does
Sunny have a secret of her own?
was a very good read. It was humorous and the author
kept the plot moving. I loved the characters and can’t
wait to see what Sunny will get up to in her next adventure
–-- I mean mystery novel. So if you don’t
mind getting your hands dirty, then Animal, Vegetable,
Murder is one book you should read.
