    1. I get very excited each time authors Joyce and Jim Lavene have a new book out. But a whole new series? Yes please! I dived into GIVE ‘EM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT (don’t you love that title) with great enthusiasm and it continued to grow with each page. There is a mystery within the mystery of this story. One that deals with protagonist Sarah Tucker’s missing grandparents. It’s going to be fun to learn more about that storyline in future installments. As for the main mystery in this book, it [...]

    2. Pumpkins EverywhereThe Lavenes have an another hit with this fast moving cozy featuring a pumpkin patch. I like the way Peggy Lee and other characters from her series were added to the story. Sarah Tucker is in Misty Rivers to sell the family farm that has been in her family for over 100 years. A stranger keeps popping up and scaring while she remembers her summer vacations. Her Grandparents disappear one night with no trace ever found with them. She was 12 years at the time. Obstacles keep comi [...]

    3. Dollycas’s ThoughtsThis series is off to an AWESOME start!Imagine your grandparents just disappearing, clothes in the closets, food on the table, poof they are just gone. An investigation at the time turned up no leads and their property just sat there. Now Sarah Tucker has come back to ready the place for sale. She hadn’t been there for 16 years. She sees someone has been taking some care of the property. A friend from her past. She finds after reconnecting with him and others she really ne [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this second book by Jim and Joyce Lavene. Their mysteries are cozies, but they feel like so much more. The plots are so structured, the characters are complex that they seem to exceed the requirements of a cozy. The book is set in a small community where everybody knows everybody else's business. (Yet, like all the others, they never seem to know when someone in their midst is thinking murder. Tsk, tsk.) Like any good cozy, the characters are quirky. The setting bucolic. But the [...]

    5. Review: GIVE THEM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT by Joyce and Jim LeveneI love this book! I was first intrigued by the title, and its reminder of Bonnie Raitt s wonderful song, (Let's Give Them) "Something to Talk About." Then came the opportunity to review for a tour, and what a great, lovable, fast-paced book it turned out to be. Well-tuned, with plenty of romance, mystery, suspense, history, legend--and some just plain ornery people. The book became a really fast read, because I couldn't bear to stop [...]

    13. When my husband's paternal grandmother passed a couple of years ago, there was talk of what to do with the house. It wasn't in the best of shape, as she was over 90 and the two of her remaining sons who felt honor-bound to look after her were well into their 60s, one with a heart condition and asthma, and the other (my FIL) with a right leg amputated just above the knee, and every one of them in wheelchairs. But it was on land that had been in the family for generations, at least since an ancest [...]

    14. I was so excited to read this book. I’ve read many books by these authors and have always started each series somewhere besides the beginning. This is the first time I’ve started one at the beginning! Now I don’t have to go backwards to go forward.I’m beginning to suspect Joyce and Jim Lavene have special powers. How else can they write so many books so fast and make me fall in love with their characters so easily?I loved Sarah Tucker. She’s a successful lawyer working for a senator. R [...]

    17. Another new series from the Lavenes, and it looks to be another success. There are mentions of people and events from two other series they write, as well as appearances by characters from the Peggy Lee series, which makes this new series feel even more comfortable.There are two mysteries in this book--what happened to Sarah's grandparents sixteen years ago, and who killed the man who had offered her information on their disappearance?

    19. Another treat from the Lavenes. A brand new series with (mostly) new friends and neighbors. Sarah was the girl next door, who spent time with her beloved grandparents. Jack was the boy who was befriended by her grandparents and was Sarah's first crush. A sweet story of youth long gone, of life and death. Hoping to sell the family farm, Sarah instead finds herself renewing old friendships and gets involved in long forgotten mysteries and missing loved ones and rediscovering her feelings for Jack. [...]

    20. This is a new series for the prolific Lavenes. As usual the dynamic duo has another hit on their hands. It is an intriguing story with the hint of romance. I was able to connect with main character Sarah Tucker as she tries to reconcile her past & make decisions regarding her future. I loved the way mysterious, "homeless" Jack kept popping up to complicate her life. The plot was multilayered & kept me guessing until the end as to who the actual murderer was & motivation. Looking forw [...]

    21. Joyce and Jim Lavene have once again developed a wonderful introduction to a new series. For those who have been lucky enough to have been able to spend time with their grandparent's at their home this will bring back memories they may have. I found the background provided help me to learn a lot about Sarah Tucker's early years and her time spent with her grandparents on their farm. As to the character that was the guilty party, it may come to a surprise to those who read it, but I was aware of [...]

    22. I enjoyed reading "Give 'Em Pumpkin to Talk About", the first book in the new Pumpkin Patch Mystery series. I like Sarah and Jack and am looking forward to getting to know more about them and their past. I really enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing and I liked how Jack was a bit mysterious himself, there was the mystery of the murderer, the gold, and the grandparents. Can't wait to read the next book and see how Sarah, Jack, and the farm are doing.

    23. Give Um Pumpkin to Talk About is the first book the Pumpkin Patch Mystery series by Joyce and Jim Lavene. Having been raised on a farm, this story was a poignant reminder of my childhood; neighbors helping neighbors, abandoned farms after the founding family members passed on and surviving family members had no interest in farming, barn raising parties, haunted houses in the fall and fabulous food! Even though times have changed and our family farm is long gone, we still visit pumpkin farms each [...]

    27. FTC Disclosure: I received an advance e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Ok, the simple truth is that I've never read a book by this wonderful writing team that I didn't like. So, whenever there is an opportunity to participate in a blog tour for one of their books I jump on it. I love it when they have a new series. Pumpkin Patch Mysteries is no exception. Up until now, The Renaissance Faire Mystery Series was my favorite of their series, but this new series just might move up [...]

I was anxious to read this and was not disappointed.Sarah remembers visiting her grandparents farm and has found memories of her childhood, especially the pumpkin patch.The story takes a tragic turn when her grandparents disappear. No word or trace of them for sixteen years. The food was on the table and the coffee pot was still warm, but her grandparents were nowhere to be found.As the years passed, no one in t [...]
