Fun read - a time filler
This is an enjoyable first book in the series. The characters are interesting (but could be more richly developed) and the story engaging. The book would be better if the characters - who seem interesting on the surface - were better drawn. Part of the fun in reading a mystery is understanding why the suspects have a reason to do whatever it is they're suspected of doing. There really isn't much to work with here, so it seems like the author just jumps from one character to another at whom to point the finger. This is a nice way to spend a couple of hours, but not a memorable one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I haven't finished this book yet, but I am enjoying it so far. I do believe Ms. Archer uses naes too repetitivly throughout and I find that a bit annoying. *spoiler* Also, I don't understand how you would be involved with solving a murder, get yourself pushed down a set of stairs and be knocked out while someone is tossing the house and you don't report the event to the police. Just clean the mess and move on? Does that make sense? Well maybe it will all be clear in the end...but if you want to clear the falsely imprisoned I'd think that would go a long way to clear him.Was this review helpful?

this was a decent start to a new series...
Its a creative story. The main character Lucky returns to her hometown of Snowflake, Maine to take over her parents restaurant after their sudden death in a car accident. She is not sure she will stay in Snowflake and then a dead body is found behind her restaurant and her soup chef is arrested.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There are plenty of suspects but the story just seems to go on endlessly and it got a little boring. You can kind of see where the story is going .... i guessed the killer...it wasn't all that shocking. But I think the author set the recurring characters up very well for the next in the series...maybe that one will be better?
don't buy this one....borrow it from your library
