Book description from GoodReads:

Winter is big business in small-town Snowflake, Vermont. Tourists arrive to hit the ski slopes–and what could be more satisfying after a chilly day of carving powder than a steaming bowl of soup?

When Lucky Jamieson inherits her parents’ soup shop, By the Spoonful, she realizes it’s time to take stock of her life. Should she sell her parents’ house or move in herself? Does she really want to run a restaurant business? And what about her grandfather Jack, who seems to be showing signs of Alzheimer’s?

But her life decisions are moved to the back burner after an icy blonde tourist is found frozen to death behind the soup shop. and Lucky is bowled over when her soup chef, Sage DuBois, is led out of the kitchen by the police. As suspicion and speculations snowball, Lucky decides that the only way to save her employee and her business is to find out herself who iced the tourist–and landed her chef in the soup…

Recipes included!

My review – 4/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 12/17/16) 

This was a delightful read. I was home today, recovering from being ill, and spent the day reading about Lucky and her soup shop and town.

There were quite a few relationships that I found interesting and found myself caring about what happened between the characters. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Lucky and her grandfather.

The mystery was interesting and kept me guessing until the end.

I had hoped for more actual soup making discussions but I am hopeful that more of that will occur in future instalments of the series. But, either way, I look forward to reading more in this series.
