Animal, Vegetable, Murder is a charming and laugh-out-loud start to Judy Dailey's new mystery series set on an urban farm in Seattle. The aptly named Sunny Day Burnett -- a passionate gardener -- turns amateur sleuth to save the farm. She deftly deals with rogue chickens, wayward pole beans, and a killer with a surprisingly sympathetic agenda. Fix yourself a bowl of fresh organic veggies and enjoy. Sunny Day Burnett juggles geriatric chickens' corpses, and a cranky Scottish policeman in this charming mystery set on an urban farm in Seattle. Gathering eggs for breakfast, Sunny discovers a neighbor face down and dead in a patch of Swiss chard. Worse yet, the murdered man is clutching a photograph of Sunny's recently deceased husband wearing little more than a pink feather boa and red stilettos. Stunned, Sunny hides the picture -- and her husband's appalling fashion sense -- from the police, but she can't hide herself from a killer more voracious than a gray garden slug. Soon long-buried secrets are popping up like dandelions. Sunny must resolve her past if she wants a future. But time is running out and the day of harvest is near.
