Book Review: Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers

Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers opens in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin with library owner Rain Wilmot getting ready to host her first book club and discuss Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide .  When one of the members dies under suspicious circumstances, Rain and best friend Julia take it on themselves to become amateur sleuths to find out what happens. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers.  Being a huge Agatha Christie fan, I knew I wanted to read Holly Danvers' latest book since the storyline revolved around one of Christie's novels.  When I was approved to receive a copy for free in exchange for my honest review, I was happy. All in all, I really enjoyed reading Read To Death At The Lakeside Library .  It was a super cute and fun read . . . a beach read if you will.  The only thing

Book Review: Clammed Up (Maine Clambake Mystery, #1) by Barbara Ross

book review clammed up maine clambake mystery barbara ross

Clammed Up (Maine Clambake Mystery, #1) by Barbara Ross is the first book in a series about a family owned clambake business on an island in Maine.  When Julia Snowden returns home to Busman's Harbor to help her mother, sister, and brother-in-law to help with the family business, she finds a corpse hanging from the banister of their family summer home, which causes the local police detectives the shut the business down.  Who murdered the victim?  Will the Snowden Clambake be able to withstand being closed during the investigation?

Barbara Ross is a phenomenal story teller and weaves such an extraordinary tale that I was completely sucked into Clammed Up (Maine Clambake Mystery, #1). Time seemed inconsequential, and the story played like a movie in my mind.  I have absolutely fallen in love with the Maine Clambake Mystery series.

There were twists and turns aplenty, and I wasn't exactly who the culprit was going to be.  With that being said, I did know that some of the suspects were innocent because they appeared in a later book in the series.  Without a doubt, I was completely shocked at who ended up being the culprit.  The backstories of the characters were interesting and not boring in the least.  I loved the way the small town of Busman's Harbor was painted . . . a very close knit community that is suspicious of outsiders.  This is something I've found to be true when visiting smaller towns around my home state.  The author has painted such a lovely picture of Maine that I now would like to visit the state, especially the coastal areas.

Five out of five stars is what I give Clammed Up (Maine Clambake Mystery, #1) by Barbara Ross.  I am very fond of this cozy mystery series.   It's one of the best in the genre, in my humble opinion.
