Snowflake, Vermont, is known for its skiing in winter—and its soup all year round, thanks to Lucky Jamieson’s By the Spoonful. Autumn brings golden leaves, pumpkin rice soup, the annual Harvest Festival…and murder.
Lucky’s soup shop is busier than usual this October, with groups of itinerant travelers in town to work the Harvest Festival. One newcomer seems to take a particular interest in Lucky’s young waitress, Janie, spying on her from across the street. Is the stranger stalking Janie?
After an unidentified man is found murdered in a van by the side of the road, simmering suspicions about the travelers are brought to a boil. But when Janie is put in harm’s way, Lucky must join forces with the travelers to turn up the heat on a killer…
Recipes included!

Review: This is the first Soup Lover's Mystery that I've read and I know I'll be back to read the first two. Why?
Cos I love soup!
No really, I do.
But what was such fun here was the town of Snowflake, Vermont and the cast of characters that live there.
I base my love of a cozy series by how much I'd like to live in the small town that they are set in, and I'd really love to live in Snowflake. I'd live anywhere with a shop like By The Spoonful.
I really enjoyed the way the author handles Lucky's sleuthing. She isn't out there trying to do the police work, she kinda gets pulled into it.
The best thing about the mystery is how it kept me guessing until the very end!
Great series, and one I'll be keeping up with from now on.
