Clambake Caterer Becca Rogers is back from her Caribbean vacation ready to plunge headlong into the busy season. With back to back weddings and more beachfront clambakes than she can handle, Becca has no idea of the heart-pounding thrills and chills she’s about to experience, and how grateful she’ll be to be rescued by her hero-in-residence, the handsome and shy Detective Lance Reynolds.

My Thoughts: 

Becca is back from her vacation and ready to get to work for the upcoming season.  What she didn't count on was vandalism in the neighborhood.  Someone is determined to drive Becca and her neighbors from staying in their homes.  Add murder to the mix and Becca really wonders what is going on and when will it end?

I loved how Becca kept trudging through the bad trying to find ways to solve issues going on at work and at home.  I also appreciated how Becca won't settle.  Definitely a great cozy mystery that can be enjoyed quickly and wanting you looking for more!

New England Clam Murder is a fast-paced romp through the dignified halls of the New England's society set.

Divorced caterer Becca Rogers feels more than a little bit out of her league when she roams the ballrooms of the rich and shameless, serving the finest seafood in the region. Finding herself smack dab in the middle of a very mysterious set of circumstances when her ex-husband’s new socialite wife is murdered, Becca’s normal existence gets turned upside down as she learns that nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted. Filled with twists, turns and a lively cast of characters, this Cozy Mystery will keep you guessing until the very end.

My Thoughts: 

Becca Rogers is working with her catering business at fancy parties for the rich and famous when she ends up bumping into her ex-husband Simon's new wife Lacey.  After an angry confrontation with Lacey, Becca goes home unable to accept how she let the woman get to her.  Of course the next day Becca learns that Lacey is dead.  Who killed Lacey and why?

Someone seems to be pointing the guilty finger at Becca no matter what she does.  If she can't figure it out will she be the one in the orange jumpsuit?

I enjoyed this cute little novella and hope to read more from Ms. Prescott.  She has a definite style with her story telling.  Can't wait to see what is next for Becca and her friends.
