This week, I'm reading Clammed Up by Barbara Ross.
This is the first in a mystery series that centers around a family owned clam bake company in Maine. They host clam bakes as a tourist attraction during the summer. Naturally, a murder has taken place right at the start to tourist season.
And here's how it begins:
She hadn't seemed like a Bridezilla. Not in the least. Most brides who would celebrate their wedding with a clambake on an island in Maine were pretty relaxed.
And from page 56:
"I think this murder will finally bankrupt the Snowden Family Clambake," I said. "And the worst part is, there is not one thing I can do about it."
Is she right? Will it bankrupts the business? Can she do anything about it? Honestly, I don't know myself yet, but even if I did, I wouldn't tell you. You have to read the book yourself to find out.
