Giveaway and Review of Chrystle Fieldler's Scent to Kill

  picture and synopsis from Amazon.com

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SOLVING CRIME? AT THE NATURE’S WAY MARKET AND CAFÉ, A GENTLE TOUCH, A DOSE OF AROMATIC HERBS, FRESH EVIDENCE, AND INSPIRED INVESTIGATING ARE THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS TO CATCHING A KILLER!
When naturopathic doctor and shop owner Willow McQuade’s ex-boyfriend Simon Lewis invites her to a party for the cast and crew of a new television show at Long Island’s scenic Bixby Estate, she’s most excited to visit the property’s exclusive lavender farm. But a whole field of her favorite stress-reducing herb can’t provide enough soothing support to calm the effects of a murder! Even the show’s psychic star didn’t predict the demise of Roger Bixby, the estate’s owner and estranged husband of Simon’s new girlfriend. Now Simon, who’s been collared by police, needs Willow’s help to remedy the situation. As Willow snoops about the mansion, offering natural cures to ease the mounting tension, a strange energy—and the discovery of an eerily similar unsolved murder decades earlier—makes her wonder whether the alternative source of the crime might actually be . . . supernatural. Can she find harmony between mind, body, and possibly even spirits before somebody else goes up in smoke?

My Review:


This was a really good cozy mystery.  It kept me in suspense till the very end.  This is what I really like about a Cozy.  I also enjoyed the herbal remedies in the book and intend to use some of them.  Reading this book gave me a whole new perspective on herbs, besides being a great read.  The book was so well written and flowed so well, that it is a fast read.  This was the first book I’ve read by Chrystle Fielder, but is sure won’t be the last.  I really like the character Willow McQuade and can’t wait to read more about her.  I plan to pick up the first book in this series and anxiously await anymore in this series.  Great job Chrystle.
I recieved a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

  10. I was thrilled when a friend gave me the first book in this series. I had been looking forward to reading it and my local library did not stock it. I would love to win this second book to add to my home library and share it with my family.
