    When the murder of a food truck owner at a country music festival occurs, Marty Morgan (art appraiser and amateur sleuth) sets out to find the killer in order to clear two of her friends (John, a rival food truck owner and his assistant, Max) who are at the top of the suspect list. Marty was helping out John and Max at the festival, along with her police detective fiancé and her psychic sister. This was an entertaining and fun cozy mystery. I really enjoyed the parts of the story that took place When the murder of a food truck owner at a country music festival occurs, Marty Morgan (art appraiser and amateur sleuth) sets out to find the killer in order to clear two of her friends (John, a rival food truck owner and his assistant, Max) who are at the top of the suspect list. Marty was helping out John and Max at the festival, along with her police detective fiancé and her psychic sister. This was an entertaining and fun cozy mystery. I really enjoyed the parts of the story that took place at the food truck court at the music festival and thought it interesting and different. The story had a great cast of characters with plenty of suspects, an adorable black Labrador named Duke, and lots of good food throughout.

    Another easy-to-read cozy by Ms. Harman that kept me entertained for an afternoon. The plot moved smoothly and the characters are already becoming friends as I read this series. Ms. Harman's writing style is so comfortable that I always feel right at home no matter which series I reading. Another easy-to-read cozy by Ms. Harman that kept me entertained for an afternoon.

    Another puzzler. What do music festivals, murder, and impressionist art have in common? You will have to read the book to find out, as I don’t want to give any clues away.

    I have read the previous two books in the series. This one is just as good and better. This time her neighbor and friend, the “truck” cook and assistant are charged with a fellow cook’s murder. Of course the main character knows her friend is innocent and will do whatever she can to find the real murderer. As usual, there’s lots of good eating, intrigue and action. You don’t know who the murderer is til the end. I have book #4 on my nightstand!

    Very good book I enjoyed this book, but it felt stiff. The scenes didn't flow easily not did the character development seem natural. I also guessed who the murderer was early on. That being said I liked the characters and the plot made sense. I will read more from this author especially if this was an book. Very good book I enjoyed this book, but it felt stiff.

    I enjoyed this story and the characters. Although Marty was really fortunate. She ignores Laura's warning to not go to the house of one of the main suspects and would have been killed if Jeff hadn't shown up after Laura called him. And she pussyfoots around it when Jeff asks her to promise to listen next time Laura warns her, half-heartedly agreeing while stating that she has free will. I enjoyed this story and the characters.

    This is the 3rd in the series. The main character is Marty. When her friends John and Max are accused of murder at a music festival, Marty decides she will have to help the police once again. She makes a list of who could have done it and then starts to talk to all of them. Can she figure this out before it's too late ? This is the 3rd in the series. The main character is Marty.

    Wonderful cozy murder mystery Marty and Jeff find themselves embroiled in the unexpected murder of a chef whose food truck was parked next to Marty's friend John's food truck at a musical festival. I could not figure out who the killer was until they admitted it. I love the character updates plus the delightful recipes at the end of the book. This is a very entertaining read!

    Chili and honey cornbread are the best I'm going to make them tomorrow to serve to some friends and my husband for his birthday. Do you have a book where all the recipes are published? I have been copying them from the screen of my tablet. It doesn't make a really clear copy.

    Fatal Festival Loved the intrigue and murder. I've never been to a music festival, but that country music one sounded fun. I loved the characters and especially a dog with pink bootees.

    Dianne Harman writes another winner Never disappointed by any of her series. ☺ Jeff is a very thoughtful and patient man. He is a police detective and the fiance of Marty, who tends to get involved in solving murders.

    Really Great! I love a good cozy mystery, a handsome hero and a strong woman who solves the mystery. Duke, the black male lab, in his pink booties certainly adds to the books charm. This is a good one.

    It was the best of times and the worst of times--from approx 1969 - 1972. I was around 19 or 20 when Woodstock happened and my friend and I and our then boyfriends had tickets to Woodstock. Our boyfriends made it there but since both us girls had to work that day-we were going to leave from my Mom's apartment later in the day. My Mom had other ideas--she, it seemed had been listening to the traffic reports--back ups--people camped at the sides of roads--so she did what she had to do, I guess--sh It was the best of times and the worst of times--from approx 1969 - 1972. I was around 19 or 20 when Woodstock happened and my friend and I and our then boyfriends had tickets to Woodstock. Our boyfriends made it there but since both us girls had to work that day-we were going to leave from my Mom's apartment later in the day. My Mom had other ideas--she, it seemed had been listening to the traffic reports--back ups--people camped at the sides of roads--so she did what she had to do, I guess--she literally paid us off NOT to go. She sent us off (with my dog) to go stay at our boyfriends apartment in Boston. By now we were hearing what a mess it was up there--MUDDY, wet, not enough to eat or drink--and of course since it was the time of hippies, free love etc not to mention drugs (pot, LSD) (non of which either my friend or I were into)--we were resigned. Then we got that knock on the door--another friend come to tell us that a guy our boyfriends knew hung himself in jail. Kind of put a damper on things--but that was when even being caught with 1 joint could land you a life sentence. Like I said--it was the best of times and the worst of times. I did manage to go to a couple of other outdoor concerts-but truthfully I much prefer going to an INDOOR venue where there is ample water, food and NO MUD!!! The outdoor concert depicted in this novel is held in the desert (NO MUD) at someone's ranch. No one was allowed to do or bring in drugs and the owner of the property really did try to make sure that didn't happen. And there were a lot of food trucks with lots of differing foods who were invited to be vendors and were set up in one specific area. Well one of the vendors was The Red Pony Food Truck and another was French Food Obsession food truck. Now these guys were fierce competitors--not friends at all! Jacques is murdered and the blame seems to be heading straight to John and his assistant Max. They live at the compound shared by 4 friends and the black lab who refuses to leave the compound without his pink booties! That ground is much too hot for those sensitive paws and for reduced rates always cook all their meals. There are several suspects and Marty-art appraiser extraordinaire and also lives at the compound--is bound and determined to find the real killer! Her police detective fiance does help a bit as does her psychic sister. So who is the killer--not who you will suspect and that's all I'm going to say. Lot's of good food in this one-and the recipes are at the end of the book! Murdered by Country Music

This one almost got 3 stars for sticking to a single POV and skipping the POVs of everyone that hated the victim, but right at the end the author lost it and switched to the killers POV. Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars...

It has earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    I have been on a Dianne Harman reading binge lately. I have read 4 books this week. I stumbled upon her as an author awhile ago and read a few book. I loved them and am still reading so I can get caught up in all series. I am so glad I found her. She has not disappointed even once. Every book has been enjoyable and some like this one above and beyond. Thank you for writing such great books

    Six friends from Palm Springs work together to solve another mystery. I loved the characters and the location of the murder at a country music festival reminded me of Woodstock. As usual I loved the recipes at the end of the book. I look forward to the next mystery by Dianne Harman.
