Chicken Culprit by Vikki Walton - Book Blitz + Giveaway


CHICKEN CULPRIT
by Vikki Walton


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  cozy mystery

BLURB:

Moving to Colorado seemed like a great way to start over. In Carolan Springs, Anne plans to spend her 
days living the simpler life.

But when her neighbor is found dead in his compost pile, trouble comes knocking on Anne's  door.

All the evidence points to Anne's other neighbor, Kandi Jenkins. As the young woman begs Anne for 
help, Anne finds herself thrust into a world of deceit and secrets.

Who had the most to gain from Ralph's death? As the suspect list grows, Anne finds her desire for 
the simple life may have led her to something sinister.

EXCERPT

Anne pointed at a woman wearing a baby snuggly in her Tula wrap.

“I’d only seen white and brown eggs at my grocery store. But earlier today I saw some blue ones, 
some pink, and even some green eggs. How do you get those kinds of eggs and do they taste 
different than a white egg?”

Anne moved to the side of the stage where a dozen eggs were in a clear container. “Each of these 
eggs is a different color. Some”—she held up one—“even have spots on them. This is determined 
by the type of hens you have. For instance, if you want a brown egg, then your best choices would 
be something like a Rhode Island Red, a Wyandotte, an Astralorp, or Orpington.
Ameraucana or Aracaunas, or what some refer to as Easter-eggers, lay blue or green eggs.’’

A small hand shot up.

“Yes? You in the back.” She motioned to the small boy.

“Um, uh, how do you know if the eggs are good for you? I mean, you know, like, okay to eat? 
I mean, when you go to the store, you can trust they’re okay.”

“Good question. Thanks for asking.” The boy beamed at the praise.
“First, let’s start with the timing. When you go outside and retrieve eggs on a daily basis, 
those eggs are fresh. Eggs in the store can have taken up to five weeks just to get on your 
refrigerator shelf.”

Some people in the crowd gasped, and Anne heard, “Is that true?”

“It’s true. Look it up.” She smiled at the crowd.
