Father Knows Death is the third book in the Stay at Home Dad cozy series.  Usually you do not find a male protagonist or a male author writing many cozy series, but Jeffrey Allen has written a great series and I look forward to more books by him in the future.

It isn’t that stay-at-home dad Deuce Winters wants to be his small town’s unofficial sleuth. Between caring for his peppy five year-old-daughter Carly and helping to keep his ten-months-pregnant wife Julianne sane, he’s certainly got his hands full. But, well, trouble does seem to find him…

That’s why Duece is only mildly surprised to find a body among the frozen burgers and bratwurst at the Rose Petal fair’s concession stand. And it seems the defrosting deceased was last seen arguing passionately with one of the fair’s board members. But there may be more–a lot more–to the mystery, and tracking down the dangerous truth may be too much for even the most determined dad!
