Summary
Summer has arrived! But as the community gears up for another festive strawberry-picking season, the villagers are shocked when local berry farmer Miles Crawford is found dead in a hoophouse near his strawberry fields. Rumors have been swirling around about a secret real estate deal between Miles and Lydia St. Graves. And now Lydia is missing after she was seen fleeing the scene of the crime. When Henry "Doc" Holliday becomes involved in the mystery, his daughter Candy finds herself caught in the jam as well. But things turn very sticky when Lydia suddenly reappears and asks for Candy's help in finding the true murderer

Review
Candy Holliday, co-manager of Blueberry Acres in Cape Willington, Maine, is trying to keep everyone happy as interim editor of the local paper in this fifth adventure in the ongoing series. Candy has hired blogger Wanda Boyle to bring needed interest to the failing paper. Meanwhile a group of vocal women dedicated to preserving small-town life is planning an upcoming strawberry festival, and Candy is busy trying to keep them happy as rumors of real-estate developments grow. Then Candy’s father finds the man behind the rumors, a neighboring berry farmer, dead in his hoop house. As Candy and her father try to uncover clues, they unearth local lore concerning buried treasure. This clever story continues an arc regarding Cape Willington’s founding families and a plot to take over the town. Readers new to the series will have no trouble enjoying this layered puzzle in what continues to be a strong series that makes the most of appealing characters, facets of farm life, and a few recipes. -- Alessio, Amy (Reviewed 02-15-2014) (Booklist, vol 110, number 12, p35)
