Summary

Three weeks before Thanksgiving, bookshop owner Addie Greyborne already has a full plate - and a killer on her case....

Addie's determined to turn a seemingly ordinary November in coastal Greyborne Harbor into one for the books. The windows of her shop display carefully curated works by American writers, including a rare selection of traditional holiday recipes from the influential 19th-century publication Godey's Ladies Magazine. And then there's the town's Civil War-era themed cooking and baking competition, with a hefty cash prize and free publicity going to the winning dish....

But when she finds her cousin's boyfriend murdered, a stunned Addie reluctantly realizes she may be the only person who can blow the cover off a grisly crime. With so many unanswered questions surrounding the victim's death, Addie must figure out the strange connection between a mysterious vintage briefcase, the disappearance of a first-edition copy of Sarah Josepha Hale's famous nursery rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb", and a dangerously well-read culprit....

Distracting Narration by New Narrator

I found the new narrator to be overly dramatic in many parts.
Some surprising pronunciations.

Hard to listen

This series is really good, except this book. The story is good but this narrator is awful. They made change on this book and it was not a good change. I wanted to see this story line to the end but I don't think I can.

Narrator was horrible

I liked the story but I was not a fan of the narrator. please bring Karen White back. This narrator was too formal and threw off the entire story.

Interesting plot

Characters likable, plot well thought out - very wordy.
Are these authors paid by the word ? Will try one more in the series, before making final decision

Dislike main character

I like the stories in this series but I really dislike the main character Addie. I can't see why she has so many interesting people in her life that like her and are loyal to her. The stories are good but I would like a main character that isn't so wrapped up in herself, self important and judgmental.
