*A Soup Lover's Mystery***BY CONNIE ARCHER**

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**By the Spoonful is Snowflake, Vermont’s most popular soup shop, but owner Lucky Jamieson doesn’t have any time to enjoy her success—she’s too busy trying to keep a lid on false accusations against her loved ones…**

**It’s almost May, and some of the local ladies have organized a pagan celebration in the woods to welcome spring. But the evening goes terribly wrong when one of the attendees winds up dead, apparently poisoned by an herbal concoction prepared by Lucky’s grandfather, Jack.**

**Lucky’s sure her grandfather could not have made such a tragic mistake. But before she can clear him of suspicion, her best friend, Sophie, is diverted from planning her wedding to By the Spoonful chef Sage DuBois when she finds a dead man floating in the creek on her property. Now it’s up to Lucky to get both Sophie and Jack out of hot water before a killer stirs up more trouble…**

**ABOUT THE AUTHOR:**

**“Writing about Vermont and the By the Spoonful Soup Shop has been a marvelous trip home — home to winding roads, brilliant autumn trees and the winter snows of New England.”**

**Connie Archer was born and grew up in New England, ice skating on neighborhood ponds, clamming on the beach at Cape Cod and skiing in Vermont. “I love every season in New England, but my favorite month is May when the lilacs bloom at the first sign of warmth.”**

**She attended Boston’s Girl’s Latin School, where she spent six years wading through Caesar’s Gallic War journals and the twelve books of the Aeneid. Happily, her life wasn’t all study. As a teenager, Connie spent her summers performing in a children’s theater troupe that traveled the suburbs of Boston, mounting productions in parks and children’s hospitals. After majoring in biology at Northeastern University, she did an about face and earned a degree in English literature. Since then she’s worked at many different jobs — laboratory technician, cocktail waitress, medical secretary, and dinner theatre actress, to name just a few.**

**Connie lives in Los Angeles with her family and a cat named Basil.**

I recently read A Roux for Revenge and was amazed. Connie Archer brings cozies to a whole new level. The food part is there but it receeds to the background and what really shines is the relationships between the characters. I think she deserves an award!

I've never been to that area so it would be great to read about it. The story sounds interesting. Who wants to find dead guys floating in their creeks?
