Giveaway and Book Spotlight - Freezer I'll Shoot by Victoria Hamilton





Series: A Vintage Kitchen Mystery (Book 3)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Berkley -- November 5, 2013


I enjoy cozy mysteries, and I'm really looking forward to reading this one.  With  the vintage kitchen theme, and the background of the story that includes the family cottage and restaurant, this sounds like a exciting addition to this series!

For more information about Victoria Hamilton, visit her website.


Synopsis:
Trying to escape her overbearing mother, vintage kitchenware enthusiast and soon-to-be columnist Jaymie Leighton retreats to her family’s cottage on Heartbreak Island. While there she hopes to write an article about the Ice House restaurant, owned by good friends and neighbors, siblings Ruby and Garnet Redmond. Once an actual icehouse, the restaurant is charmingly decorated with antique tools of the trade, including a collection of ice picks.

One night, while working on her article, Jaymie overhears an argument and, ever the sleuth, sets out to explore. But when she stumbles upon a dead body her blood runs cold. It’s Urban Dobrinskie, whose feud with the Redmonds is no secret, and he’s got an ice pick through his heart. Now Jaymie’s got to sharpen her sleuthing skills to chip away at the mystery and prove her neighbors’ innocence—before someone else gets picked off…

  6. I love cozy mysteries because they often take place in small towns, often contain some humor despite the grimness of murder (and they don't always involve murder), usually offer a good 'puzzle', and they don't feel dark/creepy/twisted. And I can count on the good folks winning.

    This is a fun book, and I'm looking forward to following the blog tour!
