It’s June in Busman’s Harbor, Maine, and Julia Snowden and her family are working hard to get their authentic Maine clambake business ready for summer. Preparations must be put on hold, however, when a mysterious yacht drops anchor in the harbor—and delivers an unexpected dose of murder . . .

When Julia’s old prep school rival Wyatt Jayne invites her to dinner on board her billionaire fiancĂ©’s decked-out yacht, Julia arrives to find a sumptuous table set for two—and the yachtsman dead in his chair. Suspicion quickly falls on Wyatt, and Julia’s quest to dredge up the truth leads her into the murky private world of a mega-rich recluse who may not have been all that he seemed . . .

My Thoughts:

This picks up with June hitting Busman's Harbor Maine and Julia and her family are working getting their clambake business underway.  When Julia's mother wants to fix up the house on the Island.  What Julia didn't count on was who they were meeting with one of the mean girls Julia went to school with.  After the meeting Julia, Chris and Quentin are invited to Wyatt Jayne's boyfriend's yacht.  They meet the mysterious boyfriend but it isn't long before Wyatt's boyfriend winds up dead and Julia wonders if it is connected to Busman's harbor or just convenient!

I love this series to go back to Busman's Harbor see what everyone is up to and meeting new characters all the time.  This one showed more of Julia's past which was great to see even if it wasn't the best memories.  We also learn more about Chris's family and why he's not big on discussing them as well as learning more about Quentin.  So much going on while getting ready for the summer business to begin!

This book was so full of mysterious people and the secrets they hold including Chris and Quentin who have their own secrets they haven't told Julia and I think confiding in her helped build the relationships.  As well as finding out the future of the house on the island and what will come of it.  I can't wait to see what comes next in this series!
