Review; Christmas Cow Bells (A Buttermilk Creek Mystery #1) by Mollie Cox Bryan

Earlier this year I recieved an ARC of the cosy mystery Christmas Cow Bells (A Buttermilk Creek Mystery #1) by Mollie Cox Bryan through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
The first novel in Mollie Cox Bryan's brand new mystery series, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, will keep you guessing until the cows come home . . .

Christmas is a time for new beginnings, so after her big breakup, Brynn MacAlister takes the gouda with the bad. With her three Red Devon cows, she settles in bucolic Shenandoah Springs, eager for a new life as an organic micro-dairy farmer and cheese-maker. Then her dear cow Petunia's bellows set the whole town on edge. But it isn't until Brynn's neighbor, Nancy, dies in a mysterious fire that her feelings about small town life begin to curdle . . .

It seems some folks were not happy with Nancy's plan to renovate the Old Glebe Church. But is a fear of change a motivation for murder? As a newcomer, Brynn can't ignore the strange events happening just on the other side of her frosty pasture--and soon on her very own farm. Suddenly Christmas doesn't feel so festive as everyone demands she muzzle sweet Petunia, and Brynn is wondering if someone wants to silence her--for good . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Now, Christmas Cow Bells was certainly a fun start of a new cosy mystery series. I loved several of the characters, Brynn, Wes and the cows included. I especially liked Brynn's idea with being an organic micro-dairy farmer and cheese-maker. Also, the plot is engaging and well written with a few twists and turns here and there.
