Steamed Open by Barbara Ross-Review/Giveaway

About the book
It’s summertime in Busman’s Harbor, Maine, and the clamming is easy—or it was until a mysterious new neighbor blocks access to the beach, cutting off the Snowden Family Clambake’s supply. Julia Snowden is just one of many townspeople angered by Bartholomew Frick’s decision. But which one of them was angry enough to kill?
Beachcombers, lighthouse buffs, and clammers are outraged after Frick puts up a gate in front of his newly inherited mansion. When Julia urges him to reconsider, she’s the last to see him alive—except the person who stabs him in the neck with a clam rake. As she pores through a long list of suspects, Julia meets disgruntled employees, rival heirs, and a pair of tourists determined to visit every lighthouse in America. They all have secrets, and Julia will have to work fast to expose the guilty party—or see this season’s clam harvest dry up for good.
And others are saying
Steamed Open is an upbeat cozy mystery that will have you yearning for warm days and sandy beaches with a cool drink nearby.
~The Avid Reader
. . . it was pure delight to read Barbara Ross’ STEAMED OPEN, with its likable characters (and a few not so, of course), a murder with far too many possible suspects, beautiful antique homes, and of course, Clambakes.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
This is an extremely well written cozy mystery that will draw you in so well that you will wish you could go on the clambake too since it sounds so yummy as well as fun. Absolutely perfect for fans of the genre.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Steamed Open is a complicated mystery flavored with layers of history and complex family relationships.
~Laura’s Interests
I loved walking around with Julia as she deals with potential suspects. And of course, the guilty party will keep you guessing until the end.
And I  thought
This has quickly become one of my favorite series.
The locale (especially in the summer) is a favorite of mine so I really like the series and the characters
Good cozy reads are a favorite of mine and a fast read.
The pages turn quickly when I settle I don't want to stop reading till I get to the end and figure out who the 
villain is.

Steamed Open is one of those stories that gives the reader lots to ponder when trying to figure out Who Dun It   

The new neighbor doesn't make friends easiest or at all.
It seems everyone is Steamed there is no shortage of suspects.

I especially enjoy the additions of recipes and plan to try
the Clam Dip!

If you love a good read check this one and the series!

I receive a complimentary copy.
Me review will appear on retail sites an Good Reads.
