When Anne Fremont discovers her neighbor dead in his compost pile, she’s thrust into the role of amateur detective. Who had the most to gain from the death and is Anne next on the list?

Anne seeks to put her past behind her and moves to Carolan Springs, Colorado where she’s excited about fixing up the old Victorian she’s bought. But when her young neighbor, Kandi, begs for her help to clear her as a suspect in a neighbor’s death, Anne finds she can’t say no to the ditsy, young woman. As the suspect list grows, Anne is determined to clear Kandi’s name.

This is the first book in the Backyard Farming series by Vikki Walton. Each book in the series has a backyard farming or suburban homestead theme and Chicken Culprit is about chickens and eggs, along with the theme of forgiveness.

A light-hearted cozy mystery that will touch your heart and your funny-bone.


Vikki Walton is not a fan of dead grapes, but she is a fan of cozy mysteries. That’s why she loves writing her own cozies. Besides her backyard farming mystery series, she‘s enjoyed her series set in a small town in Texas. While now living in Colorado, a piece of her heart remains in Texas where she lived much of her life.

When Vikki’s not murdering people on paper, she’s traveling the globe as a house and pet sitter, and coaching or teaching various topics like writing, self-publishing or work-quilting/entrepreneurship to adults.
