Review: The Tomato Thief

Leave a comment

The Tomato Thief
The Tomato Thief by Ursula Vernon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A companion piece to Vernon’s ‘Jackalope Wives.’ (…)

This one didn’t have quite the emotional impact of that piece, for me, but it’s still a welcome return to this magic-infused Southwest.
An elderly witch loves her gardening, and any gardener can relate to her anticipation of the first ripe tomato, fresh off the sunwarmed vine. But something – or someone – steals that first tomato… and the second… and the third. There’s nothing to do but to lie in wait. But what she discovers is not quite what she expected. It’s a problem that may call on all her power.
