Publisher's Summary

When Houston reporter Lucy Resnick cashes in her retirement to buy her grandmother's farm in Buttercup, Texas, she's looking forward to a simple life as a homesteader. But Lucy has barely finished putting up her first batch of Killer Dewberry Jam when an oil exploration truck rolls up to the farm and announces plans to replace her broccoli patch with an oil derrick. Two days later, Nettie Kocurek, the woman who ordered the drilling, turns up dead at the Founders' Day Festival with a bratwurst skewer through her heart and one of Lucy's jam jars beside her...and the sheriff fingers Lucy as the prime suspect.

Horrified, Lucy begins to talk to Nettie's neighbors, but the more she gets to know the townspeople, the more she realizes she's not the only one who had a beef with Nettie. Can she clear her name, or will her dream life turn into a nightmare?

    "i want more of this"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killer Jam to be better than the print version?

    This was a funny, easy listening and very entertaining story. I want more of these books on here! She captured my attention and kept me guessing until the end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killer Jam?

    Killer in the Jam tent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It took me a few days, who can sit for 5 or more hours to listen?

    "Cute Cozy Mystery"
    If you could sum up Killer Jam in three words, what would they be?

    Cute Cozy Mystery


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This is not an "edge of your seat" kind of book. It's typical of any other "cozy" in that there is a murder to solve but you know it will all end just fine. Plus the characters and world are nice and likeable.


    What about Teri Clark Linden’s performance did you like?

    Her voice seemed perfect for the story.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a fun escape to a nice place with an unfortunate murder (or two) this book is for you. It's fun...not disturbing at all and a perfect light murder mystery read. Sometimes you need something nice, fun and easy...this is it. I would absolutely read more books from the author.

    "Killer narration"

    I love mysteries and this one was recommended by a friend who I am no longer talking to. LOL Kidding... I found it tedious, and not helped by the slow narration which actually removed any kind of suspense from the story. Thankfully, it did improve a bit when speeding up the narration to 1.25 but not enough.

    "Delightful story"

    The performance, pacing, and mystery were wonderful, except I always got hungry while listening! I could practically taste those maple bars and chocolate cake.

    "good book, good narrator"

    Hope this is a nice long series. The main character's life and personality are both interesting and you want to get to know her better. She's not a bonehead which is a HUGE plus.

    The town and "supporting cast" are also promising, and and some lovable animals top it all off. Good stuff!

    "Good book"

    I enjoyed reading this book. Good plot, colorful characters and typical ending. There really wasn't anything to set it apart from other murder mysteries.

    "Wanting a farm of my own"

    I really enjoyed this book and wish there were more based on this character. It was a well thought out and well written book. The characters were well developed and the plot was well rounded. I enjoyed the farm theme since I am so wanting one of my own!

    "Strong but Flat"

    I liked the way Lucy and her friend Quinn were portrayed as smart, strong and resourceful women in the thirties. Unfortunately, the rest of the Buttercup, Texas residents seemed rather flat, when I was hoping for warm, eccentric and funny.

    The mystery was pretty well constructed, the descriptions of "homesteading" were interesting, and there was very little swearing or sexual content. The only graphic violence occurred in scenes when Quinn and Lucy had to protect themselves from violent men.

    I'm glad the author choose to make Quinn's abusive ex-husband character realistic, rather than romantic, and not glamourizing domestic abuse. In far too many recent romances, the man who beats, rapes and tortures women is touted as the hero.
