Book #1 in the Maine Clambake Mystery series:

Summer has come to Busman's Harbor, Maine, and tourists are lining up for a taste of authentic New England seafood, courtesy of the Snowden Family Clambake Company. But there's something sinister on the boil this season. A killer has crashed a wedding party, adding mystery to the menu at the worst possible moment...

Julia Snowden returned to her hometown to rescue her family's struggling clambake business - not to solve crimes. But that was before a catered wedding on picturesque Morrow Island turned into a reception for murder. When the best man's corpse is found hanging from the grand staircase in the Snowden family mansion, Julia must put the chowder pot on the back burner and join the search for the killer. And with suspicion falling on her old crush, Chris Durand, the recipe for saving her business and salvaging her love life might be one and the same...

My Review: This wasn't a bad book, it could have used some editing, maybe cut 50-70 pages. I liked the characters and would definitely read more in this series. The ending was a bit darker than usual in a cozy mystery. I read the 2nd one in this series: #2 Boiled Over and it was really good, even better than the 1st one.
