This Little Piggy (Kappy King Mysteries 4) by Amy Lillard


 

They only came to buy a pig…

Jimmy Peachey, lover of all animals, has finally done it. He’s finally convinced his sister, Edie, to allow him to raise pigs. But when he, Edie, and Kappy arrive at the farm to buy the swine, they have another surprise in store.

Balthazar Lapp, the ultra-conservative Amish pig farmer, is lying on the floor of his greenhouse, bludgeoned to death. After an anonymous caller tips off police, Jimmy’s friend Tiny is arrested for the murder. Jimmy begs Edie and Kappy to help get his friend out of jail, but with a prison record and the possible murder weapon found in his car, Tiny will remain behind bars.

Yet strange things are still happening around the valley. Corn is mysteriously growing at the abandoned farm behind Edie and Jimmy’s house. Balthazar’s wife disappears just days after his death along with all his livestock and the huge crop of medicinal marijuana from his greenhouse. And Jimmy is convinced that the Lapps’ neighbor, Gerald Kent, stole one of their pigs—the very same, ‘special’ pig Balthazar had been trying to sell to Tiny on the day of his murder.

It’ll take all Kappy’s wits to put the clues together and figure out who the murderer is, but it’s only at the Third Annual Smoking in the Valley barbecue competition that she uncovers just how special this little piggy really is.

Amy loves nothing more than a good book. Except for her family...and maybe homemade tacos...and nail polish. But reading and writing are definitely high on the list.

When she's not creating quirky characters and happy endings, she's chauffeuring her prodigy to guitar lessons, orchestra concerts and baseball practice. She has a variety of hobbies, but her favorite is whatever gets her out of housework.

My Review


 
We are back with Kappy, Edie and Jimmy, and love the relationships here.
There are still lot of Beagles, and Kappy is fostering an escape artist, but this time Jimmy has convinced Edie to let him get a pig, and we are along with these three as we end up with a pig, maybe a few more, but we also find a body.
Of course, these sleuths, one Amish, are off, and don’t let up until the answers come, and we are there for the banter that happens between all.
Yes, there are surprises, right up to the last page, and now I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
