Murder at the Blueberry Festival is the third installment of the Beacon Bakeshop Mystery series by Darci Hannah. Lindsay Bakewell, owner of the Beacon Bakeshop which is situated in a lighthouse, is busy making blueberry treats for the annual blueberry festival, and someone else is busy pulling pranks, mostly pranks that aren’t serious, such as dozens of real estate signs on the lawn of a realtor, mice coming out of the blueberry pies, and goats ruining the fashion show. However, when a local resident is found murdered in a boat with his goat, and discovered by Lindsay, someone must seriously investigate.

The characters in this fun cozy are well-developed and likeable. They all seem like regular people similar to people most of us are actually acquainted with. The setting is charming, and the pets in the story are endearing. The food references are mouthwatering; I ran out to purchase a bunch of blueberries and prepared a couple of the recipes which are included and which turned out delicious.

While this is a bona-fide cozy without graphic violence, language, and sex, it’s well-written and will keep the interest of cozy murder mystery readers of all ages. There is a bit of romance, as well as plenty of twists and turns. Reading this fun book will inspire readers to pick up the previous novels in the series and to also anticipate subsequent novels. The recipes that are included are easy-to-follow and blueberry lovers will enjoy making them.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
