    Lucky Jamieson and her spunky grandfather Jack own By the Spoonful in Snowflake Vermont Trouble comes finding Lucky when Hilary Stone a famous national bestselling mystery writer arrives in town for a book signing and to look for property to buy The venue that was supposed to host the book signing cancels at the last moment so Lucky is nominated to host the event at By the Spoonful Short on staff she hires Nanette a new arrival to town Nanette is a great waitress but she’s set her eyes on Jack who is smitten with her but is twice her age Nanette brashly attempts to change things at the shop trying to gain control including criticizing Sage Lucky’s talented chef Her soup shop is in an uproar and then a stranger is found murdered in the woods near town The residents are on edge and worry how it might impact Hilary Stone’s interest in purchasing propertyLucky manages to prepare everything for the book signing and it appears to be a success despite what Hilary Stone’s family seems to think Hilary’s son Derek is derisive while his snobby wife Sylvia seems to be hitting the bottle pretty hard and has nothing nice to say about anything Lucky cleans up after the conclusion of the book signing festivities and receives a call from the B B where Hilary is staying Hilary would like Lucky to deliver some of her soup to her even though it is late She delivers the soup wanting to help out her friend who owns the B B but then later finds out that Hilary was found murdered shortly afterWhat is disturbing is that Hilary was killed using the same techniue used in her mystery book and the murdered stranger in the woods was killed similarly When one of the town’s older residents Hank goes missing and several witnesses place him near the scene of Hilary’s murder the police are sure he’s the culprit Lucky is certain Hank is innocent and starts asking uestions to find the real killer digging up decades old long buried secrets in order to find answers And all the while she must discover what Nanette is up to and keep By the Spoonful from implodingThere were so many twists and turns in the story along with subplots that I was kept guessing up until the very end The author does a wonderful job connecting all the pieces with the story coming together in an unexpected way I enjoyed the development of the characters and how they supported each other especially when obnoxious Nanette arrives on the scene I could feel Lucky’s frustration while at the same time trying to be cautious of her grandfather’s feelings Her relationship with Jack is one of the highlights of her life and not to be taken lightly In addition to a wonderful series with a cleverly crafted plot the author includes several delicious recipes at the back of the book that are served at By the Spoonful

    In A Clue in the Stew Snowflake Vermont is all abuzz when mystery author Hilary Stone decides to do a book signing in the small town The excitement is suashed when bodies are discovered similar to the crimes found in her book Murder Comes Calling When it’s discovered that a friendcustomer has than enough motivation to commit at least one of the murders Lucky and her employeesfriends of By the Spoonful form the Murder Investigation Club If the police won’t catch a killer they certainly will Unfortunately Lucky’s attention is divided between looking for clues running the restaurant and keeping a watchful eye on her grandfather Jack who has caught the eye of the newest By the Spoonful waitress Something about this lady is off and her arrival in town seems a little oddI was totally and completely blindsided as to the whodunit That is probably why I loved this story so much There are enough red herrings in this book to keep you guessing up to the very end Lucky pulls out all the stops to catch a killer and risks her life in the processConnie Archer continues to prove why she’s one of my favorite cozy mystery authors and why the Soup Lover’s Mystery Series is one of my favorite series I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again reading a book from this series is like hanging out with old friends A Clue in the Stew sets the stage for new adventures and beginnings for Lucky and her best friend Sophie I wish everything about this series was real just so I can continue to be a part of the story well after the page reads “The End”It should be noted that while A Clue in the Stew is the fifth book in the Soup Lover’s Mystery Series it is a standalone readReceived a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review

    I loved it This was another one of those books that you can't put down once you start reading I've always enjoyed the Soup Lover's mysteries and this one was fantastic Snowflake is about to be the setting for a famous author's book signing when a woman is found murdered up near the local pond Add to that all of the drama when the author finally has her signing and then is also murdered in the same way and you have a book full of twists and turns I was really surprised at who the killer was and even surprised by some other events in the book I don't want to give too much away just suffice it to say that you will want to keep reading to find out if your suspicions are right Can't wait to see what Lucky and her crew get up to nextI was given an advanced copy of this book for an honest review

    The main mystery this time was a twist one but I have to say that I really liked the villains chosen this time It felt like there were than the usual side stories and sidelines I cared about them in varying degrees Still I felt this wasn't the best book in the series This felt like the end of the series with all the threads of the series tied up the Ambien that is the love story between Lucky Elias the best couple by default Sage Sophie and Grandpa Jack's health romantic prospects If so I'm thrilled to have a completed series under my belt because though I begin many I've finished few I'll miss the recipes as they've given me some great things to try and some even better ideas For this book the corn cakes are what I'll be adding to my recipe list I'd read another series by Connie Archer

    A Clue in the Stew by Connie Archer is the fifth book in the Soup Lover’s Mystery series The town is all abuzz because mystery writer Hilary Stone is coming to Snowflake Vermont to do a book signing Eleanor Jensen had set up the book signing to take place at the Congregational Church Hall but they have a leaky roof and it is currently being repaired Eleanor needs to find a new location and only one place is big enough By the Spoonful is owned by Lucky Jamison Lucky agrees to have the event at the restaurant Meg Findly their waitress is especially excited Meg just loved the book and wants to meet the author guess who will be getting the night off Meg has been a little testy lately with all the extra work she is doing at the diner since they lost their last waitress Meg gives Lucky an ultimatum Hire a new waitress or Meg will uit They are fortunate or so they think when a woman walks through the door looking for a job Nanette Sims is new to the area She has the necessary experience but Lucky has reservations about her especially with the way Nanette flirts with Jack Lucky’s grandfather But Lucky does not want to lose Meg so she hires Nanette with a thirty day probationary period Hilary Stone and her entourage including a boorish son and his greedy wife show up and Lucky is amazed at how many people come to the book signing The next morning Ms Stone is found dead in her room at the inn She is killed just like the victims in her book Hilary Stone’s death is similar to a recent unsolved murder in the area Chief Nate Edgerton has his hands full with two murders When evidence points to a regular customer of By the Spoonful Lucky sets out to find the real killer Lucky also has to decide what to do about Nanette There is definitely something off about her and Lucky is worried about Jack getting hurt Come join us in Snowflake Vermont for another adventure with Lucky and her friendsA Clue in the Stew was a great addition to the Soup Lover’s Mystery series It was nice to revisit the characters Lucky Jack Sage Sophie etc to see how they are faring The book is very easy to read and I was pulled into the world in Snowflake immediately While A Clue in the Stew is part of a series it can be read by itself but why not enjoy all the books in this cute series The mystery was not complicated and the killer was unfortunately obvious I did though enjoy figuring out Nanette I knew she was up to something but not sure what was she involved in the murder or something else I give A Clue in the Stew 4 out of 5 stars I look forward to my next visit to Snowflake and By the Spoonful in the next edition to the Soup Lover’s Mystery seriesI received a complimentary copy of A Clue in the Stew from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel

    I expected to enjoy this latest Soup Lover's Mystery because I had enjoyed the previous book but I didn't really expect to become so immediately hooked on the story I loved the character but even I wanted to know what happened next Cozy mysteries are definitely one of my preferred genres and add food to the murder and I'm even interested That being said I'm pretty picky with them particularly if the main character is an amateur detective which is the case here There has to be a reason that the character is investigating and she has to behave like a mostly rational adult In this case I didn't really hold Lucky to the same standard because I couldn't wait to solve the mystery She could've gone on a crime spree to find the answers and I would have been perfectly okay with it she didn't though she did follow the rules for the most part though she is a bit in the nosy territoryI loved seeing of Lucky and the rest of the residents of Snowflake Vermont I really liked Sophie and Sage in the previous book so I enjoyed catching up with them as well as Lucky's grandfather Jack and her boyfriend Elias Nate is back as the Police Chief and once again is a capable and intelligent investigator who periodically resists the urge to strangle Lucky without being than exasperated about it While Lucky's restaurant By The Spoonful is a big part of the story it isn't unnecessary It provides a background for collecting information regarding the murders and a setting for the conflict with the new waitress Nannette The mystery itself is really interesting There's all kinds of secrets and jealousies There's plenty of motives and any number of subjects I absolutely loved the forming of the Murder Investigation Club and that all the people involved were really willing to share information and actually listen to each other It made it feel like Lucky wasn't just investigating out on her own I usually figure out the mystery ahead of time but I really didn't in this one Until the reveal there were multiple theories that would fit the crime and I wasn't sure which one it would be I thoroughly enjoyed this latest mystery from Connie Archer I didn't read it in one sitting but I would have if I could have gotten away with it I'm glad I've got the first couple of books in this series to read so I won't have to wait until the next release to visit Snowflake and spend time with Lucky Sage Jack Sophie and everyone else Full Review

    This is the fifth book in Soup Lovers Mystery it follows Lucky Jamieson and her grandfather Jack and the residents of Snowflake which are hosting a book signing of Hilary Stone But before that happens a woman is found dead in the woods and the police are working on that murder Not long into this book the author Hilary Stones finds herself killed The big uestion is who had the most to gain by killing the author and why? Also Barry's friend Hank has been AWOL for most of the week which is driving Barry with worry over his friend What is Hank hiding and why?I love this series it's not a typical cooking mystery This one centers around a town that has a soup cafe type shop that people freuent and the chapters aren't inundated with recipes Alot of cozy books lately are smack dab with recipes either at the beginning of a chapter or end Which makes this book enjoyableI had no idea who the bad guy was and was thoroughly enjoyable to read and learn about adoption process which is mentioned in this book along with learn about some interesting characters that arrive to Snowflake and what their motive for being there was

    I was looking forward to finding a new cozy mystery series Sadly I'm still looking Famous author Hilary Stone is coming to small town Snowflake VT and everyone is all aflutter But before she shows up a dead body is found and the town is a buzz about how and why The crazy characters that come to town with Hilary provide some humor and of course when Hilary is found dead they provide a great line up of suspectsMy main issue concerned the dialogue They spoke in full sentences as in complete full sentences And on top of that they continually used each others name If I had been doing vodka shots every time they used someones name I'd be wasted by page 12 There's a lot of backstory given so much so that by half way through I wasn't really sure who was who and sadly didn't really careThere was a side storyline concerning Lucky's grandfather that I thought would go somewhere but it just kind of endedOverall I was disappointed with the novel from the poor dialogue to the incessant backstory And the recipes weren't even that exciting

    There were several reasons I enjoyed this book one I felt that I could easily identify with Lucky the main character The main mystery plot and the sub plot had me guessing until the end but I was truly touched with the way that Connie Archer wrote about the relationships of the characters I felt that with out giving anything away the story was written from a very thoughtful and very positive place I felt that Connie Archer choose to take a very emotionally charged situation and character's life story and choose the high road for that character without diminishing the truly remarkable survival story and resiliency of her characters I was not expecting to feel the way I did towards the end of the story I felt that I had been personally invested in Lucky's investigation and felt such relief with the outcome I have a lot of respect for Connie Archer and how she choose to tell the story of A Clue in the Stew
