Review; Goodnight Moo (A Buttermilk Creek Mystery #2) by Mollie Cox Bryan

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Goodnight Moo (A Buttermilk Creek Mystery #2) by Mollie Cox Bryan through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Welcome to Shenandoah Springs, Virginia, the bucolic small town where Brynn MacAlister keeps cows, churns cheeses--and is sharper than the ripest cheddar when it comes to solving mysteries . . .

With a foster cow in her corral and a new calf on the way, Brynn MacAlister has a lot on her plate. Especially since her micro-dairy farm is hosting the first annual cheesemakers contest at this year's summer fair. A relative newcomer, Brynn's hoping the contest becomes a tradition, bonding her even more strongly to the community. But when a mysterious tractor accident looks suspiciously like murder, Brynn suspects someone is up to
no-gouda . . .

Some folks say the lead suspect was just defending his underage daughter from a suitor more mature than a vintage provolone, but Brynn isn't buying it. Especially when another dead body turns up and Brynn's top cheesemaker falls under suspicion. It's enough to make a girl bluer than her best Stilton. But not enough to stop Brynn from getting to the bottom of things. What she discovers is the small town harbors some pretty unsavory characters. And the closer Brynn gets to the killer, the deeper she gets into danger . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Goodnight Moo is such a charming cosy mystery, especially if you love cows, cheesemaking and farming. I love several of the characters, cows included, especially as they're well developed. I also liked the subtle addressing of racism and how it affected Wes, especially as it's an important topic to deal with.


Overall, it's a fast paced and engaging read which I would recommend people to read.
