Mark Baker at Carstairs Considers reviews book two in the Rose Creek Mystery series. https://carstairsconsiders.blogspot.com/2023/11/book-review-body-in-cornfield-by.html
"So many cozies focus on one lead character. I enjoy the fact that this one features a team working together to solve the mystery. It adds a balancing act, and author Catherine Dilts pulls it off well. I was also impressed that she was able to spread out motives to investigate to the group."
Only one day left until the launch of The Body in the Cornfield.
Staging the musical Oklahoma! in the historic Rose Creek amphitheater seems like a brilliant move, until a feral cat leads Makenzie to a body. The tragedy threatens to halt the Hollywood production, and derails Callie’s plan to evict her husband’s worthless cousin. He has no memory of his night at a cowboy bar, partying with the actors. Callie can’t get rid of him until she proves his innocence. Or guilt. Makenzie suspects half the county of murder. Shanice attempts to eliminate suspects using a mathematical formula, while lawyer Drew wonders if her new client, an understudy with a strong motivation to kill, is telling her the truth. The Rose Creek Reads book club tackles a new mystery with too many suspects and not enough clues.
Countdown to book release: only two days until The Body in the Cornfield arrives. Amazon / Ebook:
The Body in the Cornfield will be released November 15th.
Makenzie sipped her coffee, took a deep breath, then relayed how the mother cat seeking help for her kittens led to the discovery of the body in the cornfield.
“Why is a cat always involved?” Shanice asked.
“Cats and mysteries go together,” Emily said matter-of-factly.
In less than a week, The Body in the Cornfield will be released. Book two in the Rose Creek Mystery series brings Hollywood and Broadway to the small town for a production of the musical Oklahoma!

Rose Creek - Book One: The Body in the Cattails
The Rose Creek Reads flier promised readers the chance to discuss novels and make new friends. It didn’t say anything about solving a real-life murder. When four women join the new book club hosted by a small-town bookshop, their first meeting ends in disaster. The career women are thrown into the middle of a murder investigation that tests their unique skills as a lawyer, a chemist, an IT expert, and a mathematician. If they can’t solve the case, the historic pottery factory will be shut down forever. Set in the northeastern Oklahoma Ozark foothills, a tangle of clues leads the book club to a mysterious code. At first, the new friends enjoy playing detective, until the mystery hits dangerously close to home.
