This is the first book in the Dewberry Farm mystery series featuring the main character

Having been made redundant she uses her money to buy this farmhouse and start a whole new life for herself as a homesteader making jams and candles etc to sell , while growing veg too and avoiding getting kicked by her cow the wandering Blossom.
Lucy is not long in Buttercup when she realises that the woman who sold her the house is not as nice as she first seems and is in fact quite the battleaxe who seems to rub everyone up the wrong way . When the Founders Day celebrations in the town brings the community together , one member of it decides to kill someone leaving Lucy to take the fall. Lucy has to find out who killed this person before she gets sent to jail for the murder and she needs to do all the inquiries herself as the police are no help! Along with her friends they try and figure out who the killer is while finding out some of the history of the people in the area , battling ex's , and possibly falling in love .
This was a terrific start to a new series and I adored the setting, the idyllic town of Buttercup. I can't wait for the next book in the series !!
