Put Out to Pasture

 Put Out to Pasture is the 2nd Farm to Table book by Amanda Flower.  This series focuses on Shiloh Bellamy and her attempts to turn her family farm around and create an organic farm in North Western Michigan.  There is a big mix of characters and personalities in this book.  There is no shortage of missed suspicions by Shiloh as well. I appreciated the details of the logic Shiloh uses while trying to solve the murder that her BFF is accused of committing.  

I listened to this as an audiobook and realized the narrator is the same as the narrator for Murder at the Lobstah Shack.  It was most noticeable when she is voicing the juvenile characters.  She definitely makes those voices stand out from the adult voices.  Both books have young girls who play key roles in the stories.   I will be on the lookout for more books narrated by Rachel Dulude.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoy reading the books about Shiloh Bellamy and her challenges in turning her family farm into a profitable organic farm in Upper Michigan. Having now been to Travers City last summer the book rang and even better familiarity for me. I enjoy the range of characters and appreciate that not every relationship is a good positive one. Shiloh has a diverse group of supporting characters in the story which adds a level of interest. The mystery was clever and had plenty of times when Shiloh was sent off on a diversion of suspicion. The series is engaging and I am invested in seeing how Shiloh does with turning the farm around.
