Something Borrowed, Something Bleu by Cricket McRae is the fourth book in the “Home Crafting” series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, July 2010
Love—and smelly cheese—are in the air.
Sophie Mae has accepted Barr’s marriage proposal, and they’re trying to keep her mother, Anna Belle, from taking over their no-fuss, no-muss wedding plans. But when Mom finds a cryptic suicide note that Sophie Mae’s brother wrote two decades earlier, Sophie Mae reluctantly makes a trip back to her hometown of Spring Creek, Colorado, to suss things out.
As she pokes around in other people’s business while learning the finer points of artisan cheese making, a murderer strikes—with a glass bottle of milk. Soon, Sophie Mae discovers that aging cheese isn’t the only thing in Spring Creek that doesn’t pass the smell test.
This was a great read. I’m meeting Sophie Mae for the first time and her mother summons her home upon finding her brother’s suicide note from 20 years ago. She wants Sophie to find out what the letter means and finding the truth will bring the family closure. Sophie begins to investigate and as soon as she approaches her brother’s old girlfriend, is her husband murdered and the mystery surrounding the last days of her brother starting spilling out as Sophie continues to dig deep. I could not put this book down and fell in love with Sophie Mae and her family and friends that I bought the first three books in the series. My rating: 5 stars
