Hi. Barb here, celebrating the fact that my blogging day is my actual release day!
Boiled Over the second book in the Maine Clambake Mystery series was released today from Kensington Publishing in mass market paperback and ebook form.
For Julia Snowden, the Founder’s Day summer celebration in Busman’s Harbor, Maine, means helping her family’s clambake company to prepare an authentic taste of New England seafood. Any Mainer will tell you that a real clambake needs wood for the fire . . . so why is there a foot sticking out of the oven?
The townspeople want to pin the murder of the RV park owner on Cabe Stone, a new employee of the Snowden Family Clambake Company–who bolted from the crime scene and disappeared.
Julia knows having another murder associated with her family’s business is a recipe for disaster . . . but who is the killer? Cooking up a proper investigation doesn’t leave much time for the rest of Julia’s life, and this is one killer who’ll do anything to stop her from digging up clues . . .
Even more exciting to me, Audible is simultaneously releasing the audiobook. I’m so happy to have an audiobook, my first ever, because I know so many people who enjoy them. But I’m not sure if I’ll listen to it. I’m not worried the narrator won’t be good. I’ve heard good things about her and she is very conscientious–emailing me with questions about pronunciation. And I’m not afraid her narration will be different than the voice I hear in my head as I write. I’m just not sure I want to hear my own words coming back at me.
But for those of you who love audiobooks (and everyone else), I urge you to buy it. It’s a fast-moving tale I really enjoyed writing.
Happy, happy Day to you!
I’m looking forward to this series. The first one is on my t-b-r list already.
Thanks, Gram. I hope you enjoy it!
Congratulations on a big First and a satisfying second!
Thanks, John! It’s my first second book.
Congratulations, Barb! As a former Mainer who misses the seacoast, I could be tempted to eat your cover.
I love my covers, too, Maddy. Kensington does a great job.
I decided to start at the beginning of the series, so I previewed and bought “Clammed Up” this morning, but when I previewed “Boiled Over” on Amazon, the formatting was not like the first e-book. It was terrible– all the print centered and too bold. Is this just an Amazon glitch or is the book really formatted that way? I know I can change the size on my Kindle but if I can’t change the centered text — I know I won’t be able to read it, which is terrible because I’m already hooked!!!!
Goodness, Lori. I have no idea. I’ll check.
I checked with some friends who got the ebook this morning. I think it is an issue with the preview and not an issue with the books.
Thanks Barb, Can’t wait to read it. (Well, after I finish Clammed Up).
It’s fixed now. Thanks so much for telling me.
I loved the first one! I can’t wait to read this one.
Thank you so much, Linda.
