Publisher's Summary

Trying to escape her overbearing mother, vintage kitchenware enthusiast and soon-to-be columnist Jaymie Leighton retreats to her family's cottage on Heartbreak Island. While there she hopes to write an article about the Ice House restaurant, owned by good friends and neighbors, siblings Ruby and Garnet Redmond. Once an actual icehouse, the restaurant is charmingly decorated with antique tools of the trade, including a collection of ice picks.

One night, while working on her article, Jaymie overhears an argument and, ever the sleuth, sets out to explore. But when she stumbles upon a dead body her blood runs cold. It's Urban Dobrinskie, whose feud with the Redmonds is no secret, and he's got an ice pick through his heart. Now Jaymie's got to sharpen her sleuthing skills to chip away at the mystery and prove her neighbors' innocence - before someone else gets picked off ...

    "Vintage kitchen tools and mystery"

    On Michigan's boarder with Canada, Jaymie Leighton is enjoying her vintage cottage on Heartbreak Island. She definitely needed a break from her mom, whom she loves but drives her batty at times. She's trying to write her first article to start her blog on vintage tools, and old updated food recipes. She's chosen to write about her friends old Ice House that's been turned into a restaurant. But when a vintage ice pick turns up in the body of a local man, found in Jaymie's yard, some arguments and abuses seem to point to a number of Jaymie's friends, and she starts sleuthing again.

    Confusing all her efforts are the squabbles between Jaymie's mom and her new rich boyfriend's mom over the annual family dinner that Jaymie's parents have always celebrated at their cottage. Redoing a drainage system has left a mess in their yard so why not have it at the lovely cottage of the boyfriend's parents. Trying to compromise between the mom's is becoming as difficult as finding who left a body in her yard. Then add in the cute detective on the case, and Jaymie has lots more to handle than her growing vintage kitchen tools collection.

    This third book in the vintage kitchen series, is definitely the best one yet, or maybe it's just that the characters in these books are growing close to my heart. I enjoy the discussion of the connection between this part of Michigan and Canada, and the shared holidays. Personalities and problems seem very realistic, and I find myself rooting more and more for Jaymie and one particular man. The mysteries are always solid and developed with good clues. I listened to this on Audible and really liked the narration.

    "Great book"

    Jaymie Leighton is staying at her family’s cottage on Heartbreak Island while some repairs are being made and she is writing an article. One night, while working on her article, Jaymie overhears an argument and, ever the sleuth, sets out to explore. Of course, she stumbles upon a dead body and is compelled to investigate. The romantic storyline is more defined and Jaymie will have to make a decision soon. I enjoyed this book just as I enjoyed the previous ones in the series. I'm looking forward to the next book.

    "Disappointed."

    I loved the previous books but felt something was missing with this one. The storyline wasn't as gripping & well, I really don't like the relationship between Jaime & Daniel. I love the narrator. Her voice is really soothing. Despite my feelings towards this book, I will continue the series. 😊

    "ACCUSTOMING TO HEROINE'S AMATEUR DETECTIVE STATUS"
    What made the experience of listening to Freezer I'll Shoot the most enjoyable?

    (Pre confession: Based on some reviews, I skipped book two.) I've now accepted the
    fact that the murders will aways be coming to Jaimie, the main character and protagonist; and, that she is too curious and intelligent to leave the police to do all the addition of facts. In the first book, being privy to the gossip agonized me; now I realize this, especially in a small, comfortable town, is the vehicle for forwarding the action of the story, and, the gossip is not frivolous - or just enough to keep you interested and wondering.

    In this story, Jaimie is through grieving her former long term boyfriend, Joel, even though he's still in town with his new girlfriend, now fiancee' Heidi; and is happily on comfortable terms with her dating partner, Daniel, even though he would like to move faster, and she defines their relationship as a 6 month trial period, after which they will decide together which path to take. I really like that she is clear about her likes and limits with Daniel, being equally clear about her somewhat confused physical attraction to Detective Zach
    Christian.

    This time a maligned and ill liked businessman is found stabbed with a vintage ice pick on her lower grassy property, which was being dug up to replace the sewer and leach lines. No murder is really lovely, and this one, combining the vintage ice pick, the
    history of which she was going to write in her first newspaper column is equally horrifying.

    Meeting and interacting with all the town folks, how they add such color, texture, friendship and interest, forming the matrixes of each murder , does make it cozy for me.
    Jaimie supports and is supported by her many friends, and this creates a lot of stability
    to lean on when she "inadvertently" ends up facing the true murderer.

    The geography, history and culture of this small border (Michigan/Canada) town is really picturesque. This time I learned Canada has a Thanksgiving in October, which her
    family has always celebrated, followed by the US Thanksgiving in November.

    I also really enjoy the vintage tools, kitchen implements, and historical food recipes, which were less in evidence this novel than Number 1. I'm really curious what foods she puts in her "Vintage Basket" lunches!

    The narrator in the first novel did well on all the voices except the Carribean owner of the next door B & B; it was barely distinguishable. This time, she maintains most distinguishing characteristics, but the a few of the younger women sound the same, and a few of the adult men may sound the same. Overall, it is a pretty good match.

    For now, for the ease, I will probably continue the series. You may notice the titles are
    subtle portents.
