I really enjoyed this book. The character of Amy was very down-to-earth and I felt like I could relate to her a little. Loved the setting - coastal Maine is one of my favorite places and I've been to most of the towns mentioned in the book. Also found the relationship between Amy and Dort interesting.

Picked this up in a laundry room at Morro Dunes RV park. Had never heard of it or the author. Found it to be a very pleasurable read. Looked for other mysteries by this author, but found nothing on amazon. Too bad.
This book almost made me a character is a murder mystery by almost killing me with boredom! It was a disappointment -- I was ready for a good Maine mystery written by a Maine author.
This was set in Granton Maine so I was quite familar with the area and the gardening tips were great. Good story, flowed well and I will recommend it to friends.

A nice read although sometimes things were just a bit too cutesy, such as the pet's name being Chutney.
