Alafair Tucker was a 1912 Oklahoma farm wife and mother to 9 kids. Her daughter Phoebe has fallen in love with a young man who is a next door neighbor. the problem is that the young man's father is a vicious evil drunk, who beats his wife and children. One day the old buzzard is found dead next to his barn under a drift of snow, and Phoebe's boyfriend has disappeared. Alafair wants her daughter to be happy and she wants to figure out who was responsible for the horrid old drunk's death. There seemed to be no lack of suspects. I really enjoyed this mystery. Although, I don't know how Alafair found the time to look into this death, as life on a 1912 Oklahoma farm didn't allow for much free time for a hardworking farmwife and mother. ( )

I loved this story and enjoyed the homespun details of 1912 Oklahoma smalltown life. Alafair Tucker is a little too good to be true, but the mystery was a good one. I read one of the latter books in the series a few years ago and was glad to start over with this one. I don't read a lot of cozy mysteries but this time period interests me. Lots of characters but Casey made it easy to keep track of them. The audiobook was narrated by Pam Ward, who did a super job with the accents.

Set in the 1910s in Oklahoma, this is as much a chronicle of the work of settled homesteaders as a mystery story. Alafair Tucker, a pioneer mother with nine living children, an adoring husband, and a reasonably prosperous farm, just can't sit back when a puzzle presents itself, especially if it involves one of her offspring. I was as entranced by the portrayal of farm life as I was by the mystery - maybe more so, since I suspected part of the answer early on.

This is the first in a series of 9 books, and I'll surely look for the next one.

Note that having grown up in the suburbs and lived in a city, I have no idea how closely this book portrays farm life in 1910, but it feels real, right down to the endless cooking the women do. I don't think the language is too contrived, either, but I'm not from Oklahoma. ( )

I tried this book simply because I loved the title. This is the first book in the Alafair Tucker mystery series. And what a protagonist Alafair is. She's a 35 year old mother of nine children! The setting is 1912 Boynton, Oklahoma. Alafair and her husband Shaw are farmers in the thriving town of Boynton when we meet her. She rules her large household with a firm, but fair hand. Everyone in the Tucker family pitches in to help in the never-ending job of raising such a large family. When a drunken obnoxious neighbour is found frozen to death in the snow, Alaifair finds herself drawn into to trying to figure out what happened to the old buzzard. His name was Harley Day and he was a vicious, mean man who no one will mourn, least of all is long-suffering family. Alaifair discovers that her 17 year old daughter Phoebe is sweet on young John Lee Day. The setting and the plot delineations are spot-on with the time frame and with the place of rural Oklahoma. I found the mystery fun, different and I absolutely lovely feisty Alafair. We even get early 20th century recipes at the end. This book was a whole load of fun. ( )

It was just after dinner on the January day in 1912, and very cold with a threat of snow, when Harley Day began the journey to his eternal reward.
