Book Review: The Trouble with Turkeys by Kathi Daley

Blurb: Zoe becomes entangled in a complex murder case involving a dead miser, tipsy turkeys, and an eclectic cast of edacious heirs, when she agrees to help Jeremy in his temporary job at a nearby turkey farm two weeks before Thanksgiving.

My Review: This second book in the Zoe Donovan Mystery series takes place in the aftermath of Halloween Hijinks as now unemployed Zoe and her friend Jeremy get a job offer to take care of the turkeys at a local farm for a couple weeks before Thanksgiving following the owner's untimely death. Zoe hesitates; caring for a bunch of turkeys on borrowed time is against everything she stands for, yet she feels responsible for Jeremy being out of work, plus she learns he's about to become a single father. Upon arrival at the farm they learn that the death was no accident, it was murder, so Zoe decides to solve the crime in order to distract herself from the heartbreak of caring for a bunch of animals that will soon be sacrificed in the name of Thanksgiving dinner. A cast of suspicious relatives descend upon the farm leading Zoe to discover that catching a killer will be no easy task, and the ever-changing number of turkeys on the farm make Zoe begin to question her sanity!

Kathi Daley is quickly becoming one of my favorite new authors. The ending of this book presents Zoe with a life-changing opportunity and I am so, so excited for her! Christmas Crazy, book #3, is already at the top of my Christmas reading list.
