OMG..this book was brain numbing! It gave cozy a whole new meaning. I have read some cozies that weren't as light and fluffy as this book. In my humble opinion, the only thing that was missing were the recipes! Just nothing to this book..can't say anymore!

After thinking about this book all day I have decided to change my review to 1 star. I have been angry all day that I even wasted time reading it and there really isn't any redeeming qualities in the book. I was much too generous earlier giving it a 2 star review and I won't hurt anyone's feelings by saying DON'T READ THIS BOOK!!! IT STINKS! 1 STAR.

I had trouble with this book. The setting was interesting--an island in Maine near Arcadia National Park--and I enjoyed the accounts of Maine's 4th of July celebratrations, but I didn't like any of the characters and couldn't keep them straight. I know that part of the story hinged on the fact that no one was terribly upset when the neighbor's husband winds up murdered, but would the houseguests really all go to the fireworks the next night--especailly when half the island is out looking for one...more

A STAR-SPANGLED MURDER - NR
Wolzien, Valerie - 6th in Susan Henshaw series

Susan Henshaw and her family have been coming to their summer house in Maine for years, but when neighbor Humphrey Taylor is found bludgeoned to death in her living room, Susan's relaxing holiday goes out with the tide.

Somebody in the small town committed murder—and in between making potato salad, watching the July 4th parade, and dodging firecrackers Susan means to find out who.

Way too light for me, not my cup of tea.

I found this mystery at the Friends of the Juneau Library bookstore. It was a huge space in a small shopping center.

Susan and her friend Kathleen traveled to Maine to Susan's family summer house on a small island, which is busy preparing for the island's Fourth of July celebrations. Susan has new neighbors, a family with 3 little girls, who have a big secret.

Susan and Katherine go up vacation in house on Maine island and find another dead body. Complicating the situation are three children and one big, stupid dog. Enjoyed this one and meeting Titiana. Very engaging storyline.

I've read other books by the author. I enjoy the characters. A quick summer read.

A super quick, fun, summer read. It was kind of cheesy, but I was ok with that.
