Dairy, Dairy, Quite Contrary (A Sunflower Café Mystery #1) by Amy Lillard

 

Looking for a fresh start, advice columnist Sissy Yoder heads to small-town Yoder, Kansas, to help in her aunt’s café. But when a milkman is murdered, the newcomer becomes the prime suspect . . .

After Sissy’s rodeo cowboy boyfriend turns out to be more of a rodeo clown, she packs a bag; picks up her Yorkshire terrier Duke; and leaves Tulsa, Oklahoma, bound for her parents’ former hometown. There are still plenty of Yoders in Yoder, Kansas, including Sissy’s aunt Bethel, who owns the Sunflower Café but recently broke her leg. It’s a homecoming of sorts as Sissy arrives to help in the café and reunite with her pregnant cousin Lizzie. Plus she can continue to secretly write her newspaper advice column as seventy-year-old “Aunt Bess.” But it’s Sissy who could use some advice when she finds the milk deliveryman out behind the café with a knife in his back. As the sheriff’s prime suspect, it’s up to Sissy to catch the backstabber herself—before someone else gets creamed.

About The Author


 

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.

Born and bred in Mississippi, Amy is a transplanted Southern Belle who now lives in Oklahoma with her deputy husband, their genius son, two spoiled cats, and one very lazy beagle. Oh, and don't forget the stray kitty that has taken up residence on her front porch. ^..^

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.

Amy also writes contemporary romances under the pen name Amie Louellen.

My Review


 
Can you imagine moving to a town the same as your last name? Well, Sissy Yoder does just that, and arrives at a place where a lot of the people whom lived there were also named Yoder. Sissy leaves Tulsa with not many of her things, but is going to help her, actually unknown Aunt, and work in her cafe.
When she is still getting to know her family, and job, the unthinkable happens, she finds a body. The body of the milkman, and now she is a suspect!
With her name in the local sheriff’s list of suspects, she embarks on her own journey to find the killer, and we walk along with her.
I loved her little terrier Duke, and he makes you smile as we journey for answers!
Yes, I first suspected one and then another, but in the end, I was definitely surprised!
Come along on a journey for answers!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
