    It's like visiting old friends every time I pick up a book in the Maine Clambake series. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this, the 6th book in the series. I'm so addicted to Julia and the rest of the clambake clan! An eccentric yacht owner, a childhood acquaintance, a "there one moment, gone the next" diamond ring all converge to complicate Julia's life a week before the clambake opens for the seasons. This book is due out in January, 2018-ma...

    Wow! Stowed Away, the 6th Maine Clambake Mystery by cozy author Barbara Ross, had me turning pages so quickly towards the end I thought I might break the button on my Kindle! I have thoroughly enjoyed every single book in this series, but this one is just so well-written that I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. We join Julia Snowden and her family and friends as they prepare to welcome summer and the tourist season to Busman's Har...

    A well-written, quick, enjoyable read! Busman's Harbor is the perfect setting for a cozy mystery: a small, quiet, seaside town in Maine where all the locals know each other and the Snowden family clambake draws visitors from all over. Julia Snowden helps run the clambake and has a history - and a knack - for sleuthing. When a newcomer is found murdered and two of her friends are potential suspects, Julia has to investigate. The plot is believable...

    Stowed Away is the sixth book in the Maine Clambake Mystery series written by Barbara Ross. Ms. Ross has written a well-plotted murder mystery with a cast of realistic, three dimensional characters. The story moves at a steady pace and has enough twists, turns, and suspects to keep the reader involved and kept me guessing until the reveal. Ms. Ross provides great character background that allows this book to be read as a standalone. I highly reco...

She is part of the Snowden family annual sail and clambake at their little tourist retreat on Morrow Island off of Busman's Harbor twice a day for the summer season.

    Stowed Away by Barbara Ross in an incredible story, intricately woven to leave even the most seasoned cozy mystery buff stumped.Busman's Harbor, Maine, an idyllic town filled with residents who look after each other, are excited and curious as to why the magnificent yacht, Garbo, is moored to their dock.Rumors has it that a reclusive billionaire is on board and the speculations are running wild.It isn't until Julia Snowden meets Wyatt Jane, that ...

    **I voluntarily read this ARC**Another enjoyable addition to the series. There were some surprising twists in the mystery, although some twists spoiled upcoming twists (I'm not sure if that makes sense, butt it's the only way I can think of to describe it). I'm curious if some of the revelations will be addressed in later books.
  • Brenda
    Solid, steady plot merging the Snowden Family issues with solving the murder of recluse billionaire Geoffrey Bower.The connectedness between all of the characters has developed into a warm family, whether blood family or town friends.Told in first person by Julia Snowden, this book ends with recipes from the Clambake.

    I did not see the twist coming that turns this mystery upside down - and makes it even more intriguing. Julia Snowden and her family own Snowden Family Clambake Company, a firm that stages a daily clambake for tourists on their island just off the coast of Maine during the season. Also on the island is the architecturally significant family mansion, Windsholme, which Julia's mother wants to renovate for the family to use. Wyatt Jayne, the consult...

    I'm such a fan of the Maine Clambake Mystery, and this book (the sixth in the series) did not disappoint. The story starts with Julia and her family--characters that are such a joy to visit with every book--deciding if they'll renovate or restore the family home on Morrow Island, all while preparing for the clambake season.Old school 'friend' Wyatt is there to help with the renovation assessment, along with her wealthy, reclusive boyfriend who is...

    You know a book is really good when you find yourself wishing you could go back and start the series from the very beginning. A strong mystery and a solid likable cast of characters made this very enjoyable to escape into. The beginning of tourist season for Morrow Island and the Snowden family is always busy.Adding to the stress and excitement is consideration about rebuilding the family mansion on the island. Everyone seems to have different op...

    This is the first book I have read by this author. At first I was a little confused about the characters, but as I got into the story, I really enjoyed it. It was a good mystery. An old school mate of Julia's shows up and Julia isn't really happy to see her. The school mate, Wyatt, had not been very nice to her and Julia is wondering if she is the same person she was back then. When Wyatt invites them to have dinner with her billionaire boyfriend...

    Julia is only one terrific character in this classic cozy- she works with her family in a clambake business in Maine. How cool is that? Well, she's also an amateur sleuth and in this installment she finds herself helping her old school mate (not a friend, a mate) Wyatt when the latter is accused of murdering her reclusive boyfriend, Geoffrey on his yacht. There's lots of money at stake so there are twists and turns (but nothing too tough). I'd on...

    Found this to be a very good cozy mystery. It was not just fluff but had realistic characters in a great setting. There are even some recipes at the end although they are a bit advanced for ordinary cooking. Love Maine in the summer especially and the idea of enjoying a lobster dinner while relaxing on an island in the ocean seemed ideal.This was the first I read in this series and I will go back and read the others. I read cozies in spurts but w...
  • Sally Hannoush
    This is book six in the series by Barbara Ross. I learned some new things. There was wonderful descriptions. Thurston Howell III was a great context example. There is humor relief when an older women has a protest banner on her walker. I would love to see a yatcht such as the one featured in this story. Lots of secrets come out- wow! Several mysteries to figure out. Another great book- A well written page turner. Recipes included!

    Stowed Away by Barbara Ross is an interesting read. Julia Snowden, the main character, has a little more depth than your average protagonist sleuth. The story of her youth is one I imagine many can relate to; it has shaped her adulthood. I enjoyed reading this because unlike many female leads she doesn't come across as weak in her adult relationships. From the very beginning when Julia runs into her old nemesis to the end when she solves the crim...

    Stowed Away by Barbara Ross - I enjoyed this book very much as I do all of Barbara Ross’s books. The story takes place in Maine where the Snowden family is getting ready for their business clambake which takes place during the summer. A mysterious yacht appears in the harbor and the story begins. A billionaire, who profits from the losses of his investors, does not disembark as he has protestors in every port. Someone on the yacht has been murd...
