Ladle to the Grave

A Soup Lover's Mystery, #4

Ladle to the Grave is a mystery readers will want to check out. I found myself curling up near a window with a nice breeze, and before I knew it the story was over. I liked that there was wedding planning as it reminded me of my own wedding. The recipes, including the chicken pot pie soup, looked really yummy. I cannot wait to try them out. The ending surprised me and I am happy with the role that Rick played in it. I am giving this book a 4/5.


Book Blurb for Ladle to the Grave

By the Spoonful is Snowflake, Vermont’s most popular soup shop, but owner Lucky Jamieson doesn’t have any time to enjoy her success—she’s too busy trying to keep a lid on false accusations against her loved ones…

It’s almost May, and some of the local ladies have organized a pagan celebration in the woods to welcome spring. But the evening goes terribly wrong when one of the attendees winds up dead, apparently poisoned by an herbal concoction prepared by Lucky’s grandfather, Jack.

Lucky’s sure her grandfather could not have made such a tragic mistake. But before she can clear him of suspicion, her best friend, Sophie, is diverted from planning her wedding to By the Spoonful chef Sage DuBois when she finds a dead man floating in the creek on her property. Now it’s up to Lucky to get both Sophie and Jack out of hot water before a killer stirs up more trouble…

Recipes included!
