LadleLadle to the Grave by Connie Archer
Soup Lover’s Mystery #4
March 3, 2015

By the Spoonful is Snowflake, Vermont’s most popular soup shop, but owner Lucky Jamieson doesn’t have any time to enjoy her success—she’s too busy trying to keep a lid on false accusations against her loved ones…

It’s almost May, and some of the local ladies have organized a pagan celebration in the woods to welcome spring. But the evening goes terribly wrong when one of the attendees winds up dead, apparently poisoned by an herbal concoction prepared by Lucky’s grandfather, Jack.

Lucky’s sure her grandfather could not have made such a tragic mistake. But before she can clear him of suspicion, her best friend, Sophie, is diverted from planning her wedding to By the Spoonful chef Sage DuBois when she finds a dead man floating in the creek on her property. Now it’s up to Lucky to get both Sophie and Jack out of hot water before a killer stirs up more trouble…

  1. Ladle to the Grave sounds like the perfect book to read during the cold winter season. I have added it to my TBR list. My favorite soup is a homemade vegetable soup.

  2. It’s been a fun tour and I’m looking forward to reading “Ladle to the Grave”. Congrats, Connie and thanks, Brooke!

  3. It has been fun following this blog tour. Learned lots of interesting bits of info, some about Snowflake, some not. Looking forward to reading on the 3rd.

    1. Hi Sally ~ Thanks for joining in today! It really has been a fun tour, plus, thanks to my publicist, I’ll have stops from March 3rd through (I think) @ March 22nd. A few more dates to be confirmed. Hope you enjoy Ladle!!!

    1. Oh, I know ~ with all these snowstorms and cold, nothing could be better than soup and a good mystery! I haven’t tried to navigate through Rafflecopter, but I’ve heard some people complain about Twitter. Sorry about that, Libby. But good luck anyway!

    1. You’re very welcome, Shannon! Not many series are set in New England, not a lot anyway, and lots of Vermonters were excited to hear about this. Good luck today!

    1. I love wild rice too , it really has a different texture and taste. Thanks so much for following along on this tour, it’s great to see familiar names! Hopefully you’ll get to Snowflake very soon. Best of luck in the giveaway!

  4. This book makes me want soup. I am going to have some Wedding Soup right now. Love your books and can’t wait to read this one.. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    1. Thanks so much, Karen! I hope you like Ladle just as much! I love wedding soup too, and actually have a good recipe for it. I should use that soup in the next book! Good luck in the giveaway!

  5. I want to read this book because I think Snowflake sounds like a cute town. The only soup I make well is vegetable beet—and I just throw in whatever veggies I have on hand.

    1. Hi Sue ~ I do the same thing. I love to make “Leftover Soup.” Snowflake is a darling village and I hope you get to visit there soon. Plus there’s lots of easy recipes in the back of each book. Good luck!

  6. Ladle to the Grave by Connie Archer sounds like a teriffic book. A book that has a cover a great as this one does has to be great. You are a new to me author so I haven’t read any of your books but I would love to start with this one. Quite a bonus with the wonderful recipes. I love soup as a comfort food. Potato Chowder with ham is delicious !

    1. Mmm, I absolutely love potato based soups! I hope you get to visit Snowflake, VT soon. Even if you start with this book, you won’t have any trouble. Each one is a standalone, even though it’s part of a series. And you can always go back in time to the beginning. Good luck, Deanne!

  7. With how cold it is out this book really makes me want to eat soup. yum. I like many types of soup. My husband like Clam Chowder but I do not. Another type I do like is vegetable soup with rice. The name of the town is delightful as is the cover. What a fun blog tour to follow, Thank you !

    1. Oh, thanks so much for following, Deanne. It’s funny you say that because clam chowder really isn’t one of my faves, but maybe I should have the chef at the By the Spoonful Soup Shop concoct a recipe for it. Good luck today!
