An autumn chill has settled over Busman's Harbor, Maine, but Julia Snowden is warming up the town by offering lobster stew at the local diner. When her landlord discovers a dead body in the walk-in refrigerator, Julia must figure out who ordered up a side of murder. Nothing's colder than a corpse - especially one stashed inside a sub-zero fridge. The victim spent his last night on earth dining at the restaurant bar, so naturally Julia finds herself at the center of the ensuing investigation. Lost in the November fog, however, is who'd want to kill the unidentified stranger - and why. It might have something to do with a suspicious group of retirees and a decades-old tragedy to which they're all connected. One thing's for sure: Julia's going to make solving this mystery her early bird special....

A gripping story
Yes. I think I rushed it a little bit as I couldn't stand the suspense and wanted to know what was going to happen and who was the killer.
I liked the fact that you couldn't figure out until the very end who the killer was. All along it had you guessing who it was.
I felt really pulled into the story. I think her performance made the suspense more intense.
It didn't make me laugh or cry but the suspense just about killed me.
I liked who all the characters intermingled during this story. I felt like I was right there next to Julia trying to solve the mystery.
