This warm and enjoyable book is a tad more adventure than mystery, but has much to recommend it. This was the first solo outing of Nancy Pickard's continuation of Virginia Rich's series featuring Eugenia Potter. The two had written letters to each other, having in common husbands who were cattle ranchers. It felt like fate to Nancy Pickard when Mrs. Rich's husband asked his wife's editor if another author could continue the mystery series after her sad passing. Virginia Rich's creation is carrie [...]

It was different than so many other mysteries where the "crime/body" is found early on. In this book, the "crime" is not introduced until about halfway through the book. The main character Eugenia "Genia" Potter doesn't do too much snooping around, but that doesn't mean she doesn't do a bit. Sh is just involved in finding the body and possibly witnessing part of the crime. In this book, there is more than one major crime all happening simultaneously, as well as secondary incidents, and it makes [...]

I've had this book for decades and, for whatever reason, didn't expect enough of it to ever pick it up. Now I feel like I deprived myself of quite a treat! I'm hoping Pickard wrote more Potter mysteries after this, because I would very much like to read more about this character.

I enjoyed the writing up until the end when the solutions to the crimes were convoluted and didn't make total sense to me.A woman, Eugenia Potter, finds pottery shards and an etched shell on her ranch in Arizona. Curious to know what she has found, she signs up for a hiking and archeological program in Colorado near the cliff dwellings of the Anasazi which they will be exploring with trained guides.But there are problems galore at Medicine Wheel, the site of both serious archeological digs and t [...]

Didn't enjoy this book or the style it was written in. The author was jumping all over the place at the beginning, trying to building interest and fill in the back stories for all these characters. It didn't feel cohesive to me, and even the ending was disappointing.I'm glad I didn't buy this book, or any others in the series.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given [...]

Enjoyable quick summery read; light and humorous, Pickard's collaborative ventures with the late Virginia Rich have a mystery (one of four) with some recipes added in for fun. This sort of delicacy reminds one of the Corinna Chapman series by Kerry Greenwood. Here, Nancy Pickard has placed her protagonist Eugenia Potter in the southwest, surrounding her with intriguing archaeological sites. Lovely read for a trip or holiday or as a gift.

I enjoyed the "27ingredient Chile Con Carne Murders" so much I couldn't wait to start the sequel. "The Blue Corn Murders" was every bit as enjoyable and did not disappoint.The storyline was quite intriguing and captivating -- I had a hard time putting down this book as well. This mystery seemed to be more difficult and complicated, and I was quite surprised by the ending. The next book in the series is "The Secret Ingredient Murders". I am eager to read it just as soon as I find it.

A lightweight mystery set in the southwest, the main character is Eugenia Potter, a rancher from the Tucson area who seeks to learn more about Native American culture and finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery. My Mom would probably like this, especially since there are a few recipes printed inside the front and back covers ;)

It was just an ok sort of read. Being a mystery, this book shouldvhabe been page turning. Unfortunately its not. Toward the middle of the book thing were still sort of "flat".Only 3/4 through the book did things start to pick up. Am not satisfied with the ending as the explanation is too simple.

This book is rich in historical data. I gained a wealth of information about the Indian tribes in the Four Corners area: in particular the Anasazi. On top of her rich detail, Nancy Pickard weaves in a mystery that carefully guards the identity of the perpetrator(s). I honestly was disappointed when the book ended; I was that engagedKC Rhoads,The Cornstalker: An Uncomfortable Truth

I enjoyed this and thought it was well written, with a sympathetic central character, fairly believable additional characters, and a decent plot. It is hard to tell how I would have found it if I had read it over a shorter period of time--I started exercising more and reading books is what got short changed.

Interesting mystery story - listened to, not read. While visiting an archeological camp Eugenia (a rancher) and fellow campers become unwittingly involved in a murder. Liked the major character and will check out other books in this series.

Set in SW Colorado at an archaeological camp, grandmother and rancher Eugenia Potter uses her skills to uncover a scheme that killed two people and disrupted many lives. The setting and characters are well-drawn, and the plot is a puzzle until the very end.

Light murder mystery set in the American SW. My first read of character Eugenia Potter. I like her. Because of this book I know a bit more about Mesa Verde area and the ancient people's who lived in that area.

It was ok. The resolution came out of the blue without much for the reader to suspect. For me, I like a mystery book to leave me a few breadcrumbs so I can say "I knew it!" or "I should have known!". I felt blindsided by this author's approach.

Nancy Pickard has an easy and lovely story telling style. This mystery takes place in the wilderness of the American Sourhwest. Pickard proffers lots of character development and strong female roles. This is a quick, easy read. I recommend it!

The mystery aspect of the story was average, but it was fun to read a story set in my hometown, Cortez, Colorado, at the Crow Canyon Archeological Center where I was lucky enough to volunteer in the early 90s.

I like a good mystery, but this was kind of disappointing. There were bright spots in the book, but the characters were unrealistic, the plot had tons of holes, and I figured it out way before the end of the book (no surprise twists here). It would be a good beach read.

This was actually a pretty good read for as long as I procrastinated reading it. If I didn't have so much to read already I'd consider reading the rest of the series. I'm keeping the recipes in the book to try. I hope their alleged tastiness wasn't fiction.

Genia goes to an archaelogical camp to find the origin of pottery found on her ranch. While she's there, two women turn up dead and 16 kids go missing. A brainstorming session and Genia's clues turn up the answer.

So much of the book is spent building up to the commitment of a murder, and then the resolution is rather lame and unsatisfying. I didn't suspect for a long time, but I was disappointed in the actual reasoning. Not one I really recommend if you love mysteries. Pick something else.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the setting and the main character. I sort of figured out who the murderer was before the ending but wasn't sure enough to quit reading.
