A cozy mystery set on the coast of Maine. I have to admit, I was skeptical about how the author would depict Mainers but this book rings true. Maine is as much a character as any person.

Julia leaves a glamorous New York City career and life to return to her hometown of Busman's Harbor, in an attempt to revive the family's seasonal Clam Bake business. Unfortunately, in her last-ditch effort to save the business, a murder is discovered. Julia's need to keep the business open leads her to poke around and question everyone in the community.

I really enjoyed this story--engaging characters, authentic setting, and dialogue that was snappy. I wanted to read it in one setting but life interfered.
