I ADORE this series, particularly so because I am viscerally drawn to Maine and would love to live there Consequently, I love the descriptive passages about the area, the scenery, the weather It s an excellent story and a worthy addition to the series The next one is a bit further down in my TBR pile rubs hands together gleefully
It s winter time in Maine While their family business is closed for the season, there is still plenty of mischief and mayhem for Julia and the others to get into
While it s always fun to find a new author or new series to start, there s something comforting about reading a new release in a series I ve been following It s kind of like catching up with old friends and following along on one of their adventures albeit from the safety of my sofa When I found out that Barbara Ross was coming out with FOGGED INN, the latest installment in her Maine Clambake Mystery series, I was thrilled and couldn t wait to dive in.Julia Snowden has decided to stay in Busman [...]

Fogged Inn by Barbara Ross is the forth installment of her Maine Clambake Mystery series, and in my humble opinion it is the weakest of the four The book opens up with the series heroin, Julia Snowden now running an evening restaurant during the downtime when the summer clambake is not run One one particular wet and snowy night a few regular couples come in, as well as one stranger The stranger soon turns up dead and clues begin to point to a connection between the four townsfolk that were prese [...]
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review from Netgalley and Kensington Publishing All opinions and views expressed in this review are entirely my own Fogged Inn is the newest installment in the Maine Clambake Mystery The book starts off with a bang, as Gus discovers a dead body in his walk in freezer Julia and Chris are running a dinner restaurant out of Gus s breakfast lunch restaurant So, naturally the dead man dined at their establishment the night before Who is this man W [...]
The author chose a different and unusual way of presenting her book It reminded me a bit of Agatha Christiebut also of Judy Bolton, a childhood favorite.Of course I do not mean to say that this story was childish It was that I had the same feelings after reading the story, which was a gentle mystery In some of her actions Julia reminded me of Judy I do not want to go into this with examples as I do not want to spoil the story.I especially loved how Barbara Ross was able to make WINTER into sort [...]
I received a copy of this set from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I really struggled with this story I m not sure why, but I just couldn t connect with the characters This was the fourth book in the series, and I have not read the previous books The storyline did not require it, but I may have been invested if I had.I enjoyed the setting and the main character s spunkiness, but I struggled with the main character s relationship with her boyfriend It also felt like the story had [...]
Great book I love mystery series and I m so glad I found this author She has a charming way of phrasing things and finds a choice of words that are unexpected and fit perfectly She touches on little details about the weather, food, chores, and characters and pulls it all together for a fun read and good ending ARC netgalley
I love love love these books Julia Snowden is settling back in to Busman Harbor and has started running Gus s Too with her boyfriend, Chris When Gus finds a body in the walk in freezer of the restaurant Julia just can t help but start digging around and asking questions The story goes fast and is yet again another great read in the Clambake series.
My favorite of the series Good food, a body in the freezer, a missing picture and a prohibition age tunnel could you ask for anything
Lots of confusion with the characters suspects and their intertwined relationships However, the mystery was clever and I loved the outcome.
Even though it is not a 5 for me, it is sooo close now I said in a former review that when Julia takes a decision as to where her life is going to be, that might be the end of the series, or not Definitely not Julia is kinda settled She has taken some decisions, everything is fine with the family, her love life is going strong But once again she is put in a situation where she has to act herself just to keep sane.The story line in this book goes way back, uncovering connections between people wh [...]
I really enjoyed this book, my favorite of the series Julia and Chris have their hands full with the restaurant, dead bodies, and disappearing items Despite warnings from Binder and Flynn, Julia is at it again, looking for clues, trying to solve the mysteries, new and old, and heading towards danger What is the connection between the diners Twists and turns throughout and development of favorite characters make this a fun, must read for cozy fans References to, and hints towards familiar places [...]
Fogged Inn by Barbara Ross was a decent mystery The story is set in a quaint sea side community in Maine The victim is found in the walk in cooler of the village s only restaurant, so a suitably bizarre plot was likely a certainty And it was a zig zag plot that was fun to follow The sleuth was suitably amatueurish who often than not figured things out faster than the cops Good mystery.
My mom and I chose another cozy mystery, Fogged Inn from the Clambake Series for our Mother Daughter Book Club Fogged Inn started off with a bang and was headed for a 5 star rating until the highly disappointing ending The ending was meh with very little explanation and seemed rushed While the book was well written for the most part the lackluster ending has earned it my least favorite in this series.
