Lucky Jamieson has her hands full with running her soup restaurant, By the Spoonful Shop, and helping her best friend, Sophie Colgan, prepare for her wedding. Meanwhile, a local May Day celebration goes awry... and now one woman is dead. Was the death an accident or murder? Lucky has a vested interest in finding out what happened as the wine served at the May Day celebration contained herbs gathered by Lucky's grandfather, Jack.

LADLE TO THE GRAVE is the fourth book in the Soup Lover's Mystery series but can easily be read as a standalone. Connie Archer provides readers with all the necessary information to fully enjoy the stories of each and every character. I particularly like the insight we get into Sophie as we get a glimpse into her earlier years.

I love visiting the town of Snowflake and reading all the yummy recipes in LADLE TO THE GRAVE. Connie Archer crafts a tale that makes the reader want to sink into her world and savor each and every moment. The dual mysteries keep the storyline entertaining while the warmth of the characters keeps the atmosphere cozy and friendly. LADLE TO THE GRAVE is an enjoyable addition to the Soup Lover's Mystery series.

Learn more about Ladle to the Grave


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…
