Series: A Soup Lover’s Mystery #2
Synopsis (from bn.com):
Even a town called Snowflake, Vermont, has a summer season. In August, Lucky Jamieson’s By the Spoonful serves chilled soups—celery and green onion, cream of asparagus—and salads. The shop also serves as a gathering place to talk about cold-blooded murder…
A protest to stop the construction of an ugly car wash in the middle of the town’s picturesque Village Green is interrupted by the discovery of a skeleton that may date back to the Revolutionary War. While the remains pose a historical mystery, a present-day murder shakes the town to its core when local auto mechanic Harry Hodges is found dead in his shop.
Straining the patience of Chief of Police Nate Edgerton, Lucky soon finds herself in the soup again when her dear friend Elizabeth, the Mayor of Snowflake, goes missing. No matter how much trouble she has to stir up, Lucky is determined to use her noodle to uncover a killer and recover her friend…
My thoughts: Another great book in the Soup Lover’s Mystery cozy series. I must admit I really enjoyed the first book in this series as it took place in the winter and what says cozy better than winter, snow, and a cozy soup shop. This 2nd book is set in the summer in Snowflake, Vermont and is just as charming.
The characters are great, the setting is charming, and overall this book offers a great addition to this series. Recipes for great chilled, summer soups in the back including Cherry Soup, Cucumber Yogurt and Walnut Soup, great salad recipes as well!
A great fast read. Perfect for the beach or travel as you finish up this summer season!
I can’t wait to see what Book #3 has to offer us, “A Roux of Revenge”, coming soon!
