December's Meetup will be hosted by Sue. Because of the holidays we decided to chose from light, food related, mystery novels for our December pick. By popular vote the winning book is A Spoonful of Murder by Connie Archer.

Winter is big business in small-town Snowflake, Vermont. Tourists arrive to hit the ski slopes--and what could be more satisfying after a chilly day of carving powder than a steaming bowl of soup?

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 parents' 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...

Recipes included!

    I think I am going to make a peppermint cake roll but I haven't read the book yet. I may change it to something that is mentioned in the book.

    Wow! I will bring bread/crackers - since I haven't even gotten the book. Anybody want to lend me their paperback (I'm cheap)? And perhaps I'll bring a dessert that is/is not mentioned in the book. see you all Wednesday.

      Hi Sandi - I got it from the library but finished it and haven't returned it. We're around this weekend if you want it.

    I'll switch to the potato soup if no one has claimed that yet. Gavin has adequately convinced me everyone hates mushrooms.

    I'll make the goat cheese and pancetta sandwich. See everyone next week!

  • Betsy

    Well, I will try the mushroom soup as Gavin doesn't like them so I'll never try making that one at home. So glad to hear your first day back at work went well!
