|Guppy Book of the Month|
Welcome to the next 'Guppy Book of the Month' post! I'm very excited about highlighting the books that I'll be receiving as part of my special Live Auction win at Malice Domestic 30. Each time I receive a book, I'll tell a bit about it and also a bit about the author. No promises as to when I'll get it read and my thoughts shared, but if it looks great to you, check it out at your local library or bookstore. Some of these books will be debuts and some will be from authors already established.
1st in the Lobster Shack Mystery Series
Allie Larkin was living her dream as a ballet dancer when a bad fall put her out of business. Now she’s back home in Mystic Bay to heal a broken ankle while also helping her dear Aunt Gully get her Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack off the ground. Nothing would help Gully more than winning the local food festival’s Best Lobster Roll contest. The competition is sure to be killer—especially after one of the contest judges dies after eating a roll from one of Gully’s biggest rivals.
Soon, all eyes fall on Gully as the prime suspect. Allie may only have one good leg to stand on, but she’s not going to let her aunt go down for a crime she never could have cooked up. Can Allie, along with her devoted crew of friends, family, and customers, find a way to trap the killer and claw herself out of this hard-boiled murder case?
Shari is a former children's librarian and military wife who lives in Connecticut with her husband. She's the current Library Liaison for Sisters in Crime. Oh, and she also writes this great mystery series in her spare time. Busy, busy, right? The second Lobster Shack mystery just came out at the end of July. It's Against the Claw and takes the reader back to Mystic Bay to visit with Allie Larkin and her Aunt Gully. I'm ready to head to New England and solves some crimes! Why don't you come along?
Many thanks to Shari for sending me Curses, Boiled Again!, plus a very kind note thanking me for supporting KEEN (the charity the auction benefited) and the mystery community. Shari, it was my genuine pleasure and I so look forward to starting your series! Good luck with your writing and from one librarian to another - well done!
