Description:

The busy summer tourist season is winding down in Busman's Harbor, Maine, but Julia Snowden senses trouble simmering for the Snowden Family Clambake Company. Shifty David Thwing - the "Mussel King" of upscale seafood restaurants - is sniffing around town for a new location. But serving iffy clams turns out to be the least of his troubles....

When Thwing is found sleeping with the fishes beneath a local lobsterman's boat, the police quickly finger Julia's brother-in-law, Sonny, as the one who cooked up the crime. Sure, everyone knows Sonny despised the Mussel King...but Julia believes he's innocent. Proving it won't be easy, though. It seems there's a lot more than murder on the menu, and Julia needs to act fast...

My Thoughts:

This book follows Julia Snowden and her family as they try to figure out what happened when David Thwing winds up dead under a lobsterman's boat and Sonny keeps showing up on the police radar it's up to Julia to figure out what is going on?  Add this to the mystery behind where Chris Julia's boyfriend was the previous summer and there is a lot of investigating going on.

I love this series as it takes place in Maine and brings us to the lobster, clams and more.  I love the family relationship and how Julia really goes beyond with trying to find out what is going on and she generally cares about the residents in Busman's Harbor.  Definitely worth checking out!!
