A Clue in the Stew

The mystery itself is really interesting. There’s all kinds of secrets and jealousies. There’s plenty of motives and any number of subjects.

This is a charming and delicious murder mystery that will keep you wanting more.The cast of characters take this story to epic proportions with a twist that will leave you stunned at the end.

Frankly, I really like the town and its people. It’s that, along with Archer’s well-constructed plots and good pacing, that makes the Soup Lover’s Mystery series one of my favorite American cozies.

I really liked Lucky she and her crew work well together and she brings the story out for you to want to turn the pages and keep reading.

Soup shop owner Lucky Jamieson stirs up more trouble in the latest mystery from the national bestselling author of Ladle to the Grave…

When Lucky Jamieson opens up By the Spoonful to host an event with a famous author, she’s not expecting a bunch of nuts to descend on her small-town soup shop. But the author’s exasperating entourage—from a prickly publicist to a snippy son and his tipsy wife—give fresh meaning to the phrase, too many cooks spoil the broth.

The evening is more than spoiled, however, when it ends with a homicide. When the manner of the murder—as well as another recent unsolved crime—echoes the author’s fiction, Police Chief Nate Edgerton realizes he has a copycat killer on his hands. And Lucky hopes that one of her regular customers who has mysteriously gone missing isn’t involved. Once again, the soup shop owner will need to stir up some clues to find her friend and catch a cunning killer—before things really take a tureen for the worse…

  1. Reading your books always makes me want to make some soup. Not bad, right?
    I wish rafflecopter weren’t so twitter centric.

    • It’s hard to use Facebook for Rafflecopter because people aren’t allowed to ask people to ‘like’ Facebook pages anymore. So a lot of us choose to use Twitter because we can increase our followers that way. I’m sorry you don’t have Twitter and it limits your entries. If you use Goodreads, be sure to check out the book on Goodreads ~ they are giving a copy away there as well. Good luck!

  2. Sounds like a fun read.

  11. A new author for me to read! The background stories of Vermont in this post were great, my kind of reading. Vermont is a wonderful place, I love the old houses and Inns. It is a state like no other. It is the perfect place to set a mystery series. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on this series and not just because of the main character’s last name either. 😉

  12. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of your book. I love finding new-to-me authors.
