Julia Snowden and the Snowden Family Clambake Company return for another case of mystery and murder in Maine--this time, Julia must uncover the murderer of an oyster farmer. When oyster farmer Andie Greatorex is robbed of a bucket of oyster seed worth $35,000, she comes to Julia Snowden for help. Who wants to sink Andie's successful business? Is it a rival oyster farmer, an ex-employee, a neighbor who objects to the oyster cages floating on the beautiful Damariscotta River, a lobsterman who feels pushed out by the farm leases, or someone from Andie's personal life? Then Andie turns up dead, floating by her dock in the SCUBA gear she wears when harvesting her oysters. Julia's head start puts her in a perfect position to help her friends in the Maine State police major crimes unit with the investigation. But can Julia make sure the right suspect gets sent up the river before she ends up in a watery grave?

I always look forward to a new Maine Clambake mystery! The setting is always described extremely well, and I always feel like I'm actually there in Busman's Harbor with Julia, Chris, their family/friends/employees, etc.

In this book the focus is on Chris and Julia's relationship, including a female friend who Julia had never met before and who is later found dead. It was interesting to see the dynamics and repercussions of that. The ending will make you want another story STAT!

This series is one of my favorite cozies, and I always preorder each installment. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading about oyster farming; I found it fascinating! As always, all the food sounded delicious, and you'll be craving a satisfying clambake meal with Julia and her family!
