A Roux of Revenge

A Roux of Revenge

By: Connie Archer

Genre: Mystery

A Roux of Revenge is set in Snowflake, Vermont and is the third Soup Lover’s mystery by Connie Archer.

Lucky Jamieson and her crew are busy preparing for Halloween and the Harvest Festival.  Ahh, Vermont in autumn…red and gold leaves and cool evenings that are perfect for a big bowl of pumpkin rice soup cooked up by soup chef, Sage.

While many of the town folks decide to have a booth at the Harvest Festival, Lucky and By the Spoonful staff decide to host a pumpkin carving contest at the restaurant.  Everyone gets into the spirit except for waitress, Janie, who is weary of the man watching her from across the street.  Who is he?  Is he one of the gypsy/carnival travelers or someone else?

Meanwhile, Sheriff Nate Edgerton has a mystery of his own to solve.  A suspicious vehicle accident occurred outside of town and the dead man driving the stolen van has no identification, so Nate decides to investigate the carnival workers to see if there is any connection.

Another mystery appears in the story when a retired insurance investigator tells about an armed robbery that took place years before that is still unsolved.

Is there any connection between the man watching Janie, the unidentified man in an accident and the unsolved robbery?

Join Lucky Jamieson as she works to solve the clues…one at a time.

Synopsis:

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 parent’s 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.
