A Killer Hike Is Around the Bend in A Field Guide to Homicide by Lynn Cahoon

A Field Guide to Homicide

In A Field Guide to Homicide by Lynn Cahoon, Cat Latimer and her writer’s retreat group go on a hiking trip—but a murderer has been lurking off the beaten path. Cat’s sweetheart, Seth, is going all out on an outing into the local mountains—for the benefit of the writing group Cat’s hosting at her Colorado B&B. But when they try to identify some plant and animal life, they find death instead. The body belongs to a man with a gold claim a few miles away. Instead of striking it rich, he’s been struck down. To his surprise, Seth recognizes the victim from his military days—and up to now believed he’d already died during his last tour of duty. Now Cat has to solve this mystery before the killer takes a hike.

Special Sunday Shrimp Frittata
Serves: 8-10 servings
In the Cat Latimer mysteries, I love writing the kitchen scenes where Shauna and Cat work on solving the recent murder while mixing up food for the morning meal. This frittata is one of my favorites for a snowy Sunday morning. I’m sure Shauna loves the ease of making this savory dish for their guests.—Lynn
