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
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
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.
By the Spoonful is Snowflake, Vermont’s most popular

false accusations against her loved ones…
It’s almost May, and some of the local ladies have
a pagan celebration in the woods to welcome spring. But
evening goes terribly wrong when one of the attendees
up dead, apparently poisoned by an herbal concoction

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
dead man floating in the creek on her property. Now it’s
to Lucky to get both Sophie and Jack out of hot water
a killer stirs up more trouble…
