My Review: Oh, my stars, what a great mystery. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. The ending makes me what to chuck everything else I need to read and read book three pronto.

I enjoyed how real Julia is with her concerns about if she should stay in Busmans Harbor. She enjoyed her life in NYC but understands her family needs her. Plus she has begun a relationship with her childhood crush. Does one stay for love? Is she in love?

The mystery was very interesting. Shows how people are connected in so many ways. I didn’t guess the murderer.

I really enjoyed learning about the town’s history and about blueberry harvesting.

Several yummy recipes are included. I have plans for two already.

Goodreads: For Julia Snowden, the Founder’s Day summer celebration in Busman’s Harbor, Maine, means helping her family’s clambake company to prepare an authentic taste of New England seafood. Any Mainer will tell you that a real clambake needs wood for the fire . . . so why is there a foot sticking out of the oven?

The townspeople want to pin the murder of the RV park owner on Cabe Stone, a new employee of the Snowden Family Clambake Company–who bolted from the crime scene and disappeared.

Julia knows having another murder associated with her family’s business is a recipe for disaster . . . but who is the killer? Cooking up a proper investigation doesn’t leave much time for the rest of Julia’s life, and this is one killer who’ll do anything to stop her from digging up clues . . .
