Curl up with a glass of merlot and travel to California wine country, where a sweet, unsuspecting town becomes the site of mischief and murder…
This is a cozy mystery that will check all your boxes: a charming bed and breakfast, a clever heroine and a lovable cattle dog named Rex…you are sure to fall for this series!
Weeding out killers wasn’t part of the job description . . .
Kelly Jackson, manager of the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast, is excited to participate in an event to raise awareness for the plight of struggling veterans in their Northern California coastal community. Local wineries are sponsoring tastings, and to prepare for a culinary competition, professional chefs will forage for wild edible greens. Kelly plans to come along, despite a warning to beware of poachers, who have been stealing the highly valued succulent Dudleya farinosa.
The senior sleuths who call themselves the Silver Sentinels join forces with environmental activists known as the Succulent Saviors to thwart the poaching operation. When a consultant for the sale of a local winery is murdered, the poachers are suspected—but so is a wine merchant, Kelly's friend Phil. As Kelly and the Silver Sentinels attempt to root out the real killer, what she digs up might just put her permanently underground . . .

My Thoughts:

This follows the Silver Sentinels and  Kelly Jackson find themselves introducing new people to things offered at the Redwood Cove B and B along the way Michael whose idea it was for the bed and breakfast among other things and a chef visiting end up kidnapped and another chef disappears Kelly finds herself deep in a search and rescue situation.  

They also learn about poachers in the area stealing plants that are worth quite a penny on the market.  While avoiding the poachers Kelly uses her witt and a dog to get to the bottom of what is going.  They also help Phil get out from under a murder wrap of his friend.  

Will Kelly and the Sentinels figure out in time or will she be checking out next?  This book is such fun I love the Sentinels and what they bring to the story and I love how Kelly is like a dog with a bone and won't give up until she figures it out!  Definitely a series I will continue if you haven't read it your missing out a fabulous mystery!
