Review: Boiled Over

Boiled Over
Boiled Over by Barbara Ross
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The second Maine Clambake Mystery is about as good as the first, but again it doesn’t really live up to its potential. There’s a lot of great scenery and Maine history, of course. I don’t really find myself liking too many of the characters though, as they’re all still pretty much cardboard cutouts. There are backstories, of course, but they’re so stereotypical you almost wish the author hadn’t bothered with them. I did like how the author tied this into a semi-current financial scandal, but who the killer had to be was pretty obvious from about the halfway mark (thought the actual identity was a toss-up until the end, I will give her that one).
