In a spicy cozy mystery filled with herbal remedies readers will love, a sustainable winery becomes the backdrop for murder! Fortunately, solving crimes comes naturally to charmingly unconventional naturopath and amateur sleuth Willow McQuade, as she looks for clues that will reveal a killer’s true essence.
Business is blooming at Nature’s Way Market & Café, and shop owner and naturopathic doctor Willow McQuade has never been happier. Her new medicinal garden is a hit with villagers, and she’s helping her ex-boyfriend Simon and husband-and-wife team David and Ivy create Pure, an organic winery powered only by wind and sun.
Of course, it’s only natural for Willow to want to have a little fun, too. When David and Ivy throw a festive opening for the winery, the party flows freely until after the toast, when smiles give way to looks of horror. Ivy’s twin sister has been poisoned! The police reveal the fatal concoction was meant for David. But who could hold such a grudge? Amateur sleuth Willow takes a holistic approach to solving crimes, one in which the answer is not necessarily at the surface but is very often right under your nose—and this time the truth could be a bitter pill to swallow.
