An autumn chill has settled over Busman's Harbor, Maine, but Julia Snowden is warming up the town by offering lobster stew at the local diner. When her landlord discovers a dead body in the walk-in refrigerator, Julia must figure out who ordered up a side of murder. Nothing's colder than a corpse - especially one stashed inside a sub-zero fridge. The victim spent his last night on earth dining at the restaurant bar, so naturally Julia finds herself at the center of the ensuing investigation. Lost in the November fog, however, is who'd want to kill the unidentified stranger - and why. It might have something to do with a suspicious group of retirees and a decades-old tragedy to which they're all connected. One thing's for sure: Julia's going to make solving this mystery her early bird special....

Yes. I think I rushed it a little bit as I couldn't stand the suspense and wanted to know what was going to happen and who was the killer.
I liked the fact that you couldn't figure out until the very end who the killer was. All along it had you guessing who it was.
I felt really pulled into the story. I think her performance made the suspense more intense.
It didn't make me laugh or cry but the suspense just about killed me.
I liked who all the characters intermingled during this story. I felt like I was right there next to Julia trying to solve the mystery.
Is there a detective who
1. Does not have insider info from the police
2. Can ask questions of suspects who refuse to answer
3. Does not go off half-cocked because she is in a big 'hurry up'
4. Will not put signifant others at risk from murderers without their knowledge or permission
5. Not be INSTANTLY forgiven for being a total jerk
6. Has to be at work during working hours and needs 7-8 hours sleep?
If so, I'd love to read her story! This is not that book. The detective knows, knows, knows she is right and no one else is even competent. *sigh*
This was okay. Julia lost focus of her relationship and the mystery in this book. I didn't agree with the resolution, but, I did enjoy the story. The narrator toned down her performance so that was okay as well.
The plot was o.k. , it bordered on boring. The heroin was watery and uninteresting. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator did not do such an awful job, I have many audio books and she is the worst of the worst.
