Fatal Frost is the second novel in the popular Dewberry Farm by bestselling author, Karen MacInerney, which finds Lucy picking up some goats from her friend, Peter’s farm when they discover a fire and when they investigate, discover the body of a waitress from Lucy’s best friend Quinn’s restaurant. Someone has been digging up Lucy’s farm, and things are going on in Buttercup, Texas. Lucy, who is an amateur sleuth, investigates.

The characters are well developed, and Lucy, who is the protagonist, is likeable and seems very real. The sub-characters are also good and their interactions ring true. Things in the small town are typical, and, since the town seems charming, it is a good setting for a story.

MacInerney is an excellent storyteller and has a knack for keeping readers interested, as she slowly builds suspense and adds scenarios that keep those readers on the edge. There are ups and downs, and surprises. One of the best things is that this is a culinary mystery, so there are dozens of food references that will make readers want to create the dishes. It’s nice that there are good recipes included, and they are mouthwatering and easy to make.

This is a fun series, and a good cozy, which means it doesn’t include blatant violence, sex, or profanity; it is perfect for all ages. Fans will want to read the entire series.
