The first in Randall's Lobster Shack series starts with a death at a televised Lobster Roll Contest. Was it murder, or just a case of food poisoning? Allie has just returned to the small town of Mystic Bay to nurse an injury, help her aunt run her newly opened restaurant, The Lazy Mermaid, and solve a murder. A great start to a new series, and this one wins points for having one of the best cozy titles ever. - John

"Delightful A fun whodunit full of New England coastal charm and characters who feel like friends. Warm humor, a delectable plot, and clever sleuthing will keep you turning the pages." --Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of the Domestic Diva Mysteries

Welcome to the seaside hamlet of Mystic Bay, where the fish is always fresh, the folks are ever-friendly, and murder is on a roll. . .

Allie Larkin was living her dream as a ballet dancer when a bad fall put her out of business. Now she's back home in Mystic Bay to heal a broken ankle while also helping her dear Aunt Gully get her Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack off the ground. Nothing would help Gully more than winning the local food festival's Best Lobster Roll contest. The competition is sure to be killer--especially after one of the contest judges dies after eating a roll from one of Gully's biggest rivals.

Soon, all eyes fall on Gully as the prime suspect. Allie may only have one good leg to stand on, but she's not going to let her aunt go down for a crime she never could have cooked up. Can Allie, along with her devoted crew of friends, family, and customers, find a way to trap the killer and claw herself out of this hard-boiled murder case?
