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.
