This is book number 2 in the A Sunflower Café Mystery series.

Set in small-town Kansas, USA Today bestselling author Amy Lillard’s Sunshine Café Mystery series features a twenty-something advice columnist turned café manager and sleuth, her tiny dog with a big personality, farm-fresh produce—and murder!

Professional advice columnist turned café manager and amateur sleuth Sissy Yoder is adjusting to life in her parents’ small but not-so-sleepy former hometown of Yoder, Kansas, where family is plentiful, the tomatoes are “to die for”—and murder is often in season . . .

Twenty-something Sissy Yoder never imagined herself running her Aunt Bethel’s café, but her help is needed, so she’s making a go of it. And she must admit that life in tiny Yoder has been anything but dull–she’s already solved one homicide—after being named the prime suspect in the case!

Enjoying a peaceful respite after all that excitement, Sissy just wants to write her advice column, hang out with her loyal Yorkie, Duke, and procure some of local farmer Walt Summers’ scrumptious “To Die For” tomatoes for the Sunshine Café’s menu. But when the unsavory Summers–resented by just about everyone in town–turns up murdered in his garden shed, it’s up to Sissy to roll up her sleeves, dig for some clues, and weed out the culprit . . .

Praise for Amy Lillard’s Cozy Mysteries
“A promising new sleuth whose lovable dog and incipient love interest combine nicely with Lillard’s trademark Amish lore.” —Kirkus Reviews on Dairy, Dairy, Quite Contrary

“Readers will love unraveling this fun mystery!” —Modern Dog Magazine on Dairy, Dairy, Quite Contrary

Dairy, Dairy, Quite Contrary, though a murder mystery, avoids gruesome details and is anything but sinister; rather it is a delightful exploration of the human spirit, a wise unveiling of the reasons for people’s actions, and a celebration and critique of small towns. Plenty of humor, a delightful cast of characters, and a satisfying plot make this first book in Lillard’s series a promising harbinger of future Sunflower Café mysteries.” —The Banner

“Kappy King, her word-of-the-day calendar (and the rest of her endearing quirks), her English sidekick Edie (and Edie’s special needs brother Jimmy - and their endearing quirks), and hunky detective Jack Jones return with all the wit and warmth readers have come to expect from this series. Lillard’s dry sense of humor, engaging characters, and on-point comedic timing are ideal for those looking for a book that makes them smile from the first page to the last.” —Hope by the Book on Kappy King and the Pie Kaper
“Kappy and Edie travel by buggy and car all over the valley attending everything from funerals to rock concerts while trying to figure out whether Sally June's death was accident or murder. Plenty of details about the Amish lifestyle and a more complex mystery.” —Kirkus Reviews on Kappy King and the Pickle Kaper
“With a hard to solve mystery, two men that are crazy about our main sleuth, and a few older single women meeting for a book club, how could you not love this cozy?” —Fresh Fiction on Murder Between the Pages
"The book club ladies make a winning team in an amusing tale replete with down-home atmosphere and romance." —Kirkus Reviews on A Murder Like No Author
“The likable characters and Edie's slow progress in re-embracing her Amish side will keep fans coming back for more.” —Publishers Weekly on Kappy King and the Pie Kaper
"A promising series debut, sometimes humorous, often puzzling, and peopled with believable characters." —Kirkus Reviews on Can’t Judge a Book By its Murder
