A Maine Clambake Mystery #8
In Sealed Off, we are back in Busman’s Harbor, Maine visiting with the Snowden family and their Clambake Business. It’s October and they are finishing up for the year with only six bakes left.
Julia has hired her boyfriends’ brother, recently released from prison, to help with the fires. Lately, she has been noticing that there is a bit of tension in their close-knit group. Not one but two men are vying for Emmy’s attention and it’s beginning to feel awkward.
When Julia and Sonny find one of the interested parties dead in the woodpile, it’s not looking good for the ex-con.
At the same time work is continuing on the family manor although that turns up more mystery. A secret room, a secret diary and enough curiosity to kill several cats! Julia and friends get down to solving both mysteries, sad as they both may be.
I love this series. Barbara Ross is a wonderful storyteller alone or with her writing partners in crime! About the only thing, I love more than murder and mayhem is a good historical mystery! Secret rooms? Diaries from the 1800s? Sign me up!
