Hi All! Advance Reader Copies for the seventh Maine Clambake Mystery, Steamed Open, are here. Comment below to enter to win one of two signed copies.
I’m excited about this new book which focuses on the tasty mollusk for which the clambake is named. Also, Maine coastal property rights. (Not what you expect them to be.) And, we finally get more of Julia’s boyfriend’s Chris’s family story.
Here’s the blurb:
It’s summertime in Busman’s Harbor, Maine, and the clamming is easy—or it was until a mysterious new neighbor blocks access to the beach, cutting off the Snowden Family Clambake’s supply. Julia Snowden is just one of many townspeople angered by Bartholomew Frick’s decision. But which one of them was angry enough to kill?
Beachcombers, lighthouse buffs, and clammers are outraged after Frick puts up a gate in front of his newly inherited mansion. When Julia urges him to reconsider, she’s the last to see him alive—except the person who stabs him in the neck with a clam rake. As she pores through a long list of suspects, Julia meets disgruntled employees, rival heirs, and a pair of tourists determined to visit every lighthouse in America. They all have secrets, and Julia will have to work fast to expose the guilty party—or see this season’s clam harvest dry up for good.
Good luck and thanks for entering!
