Publisher's Summary

It's a mother-clucking murder!

When Leona Davis hatches a plan to return to her beloved hometown of Honeytree, Oregon, she hopes to build the egg farm of her dreams and leave behind the marriage of her nightmares.

But the yolk's on her when she breaks ground on her chicken palace and unearths a skeleton in her front yard. It's clearly fowl play. The bones may be decades old, but there's no statute of limitations on murder.

With a county forensics team roosting on her lawn and a flock of town gossips poking their beaks where they don't belong, Leona's well-laid farming plans may be nothing more than a wing and a prayer.

Her spicy high school ex, Sheriff Eli Ramirez, assures Leona he'll crack the case, but he's not exactly a hardboiled detective. Her best hope to get back to a life with more hens and less mens? Scramble to uncover her small town's buried secrets before everything's totally plucked.

A Cop and a Coop is the first book in the clever, irreverent Clucks and Clues Cozy Mysteries that will keep you chuckling and guessing until the end.

A mother-clucking good book!

Leona is exactly the type of cozy protagonist I love. Rebuilding her life after divorce, she digs up a body while working on the foundation of her chicken coop--and doesn't stop digging until the murder is solved.

Not for me

I couldn't finish this book. The plot didn't seem to bad, but I got tired of the main character, Leona Davis. I found her character to be incredibly prickly and rude. I also thought the policeman who was trying to pursue her was an idiot for allowing her to interfere with his investigation. I know that in cozy mysteries, the lead character often starts her own investigation, but, she crossed the line from being noisy to interfering with a police investigation. I thought I would be able to finish the book but I couldn't continue to ignore her abrasiveness. I returned this book and will not get another book in this series.
