Trying to escape her overbearing mother, vintage kitchenware enthusiast and soon-to-be columnist Jaymie Leighton retreats to her family’s cottage on Heartbreak Island. While there she hopes to write an article about the Ice House restaurant, owned by good friends and neighbors, siblings Ruby and Garnet Redmond. Once an actual icehouse, the restaurant is charmingly decorated with antique tools of the trade, including a collection of ice picks.

One night, while working on her article, Jaymie overhears an argument and, ever the sleuth, sets out to explore. But when she stumbles upon a dead body her blood runs cold. It’s Urban Dobrinskie, whose feud with the Redmonds is no secret, and he’s got an ice pick through his heart. Now Jaymie’s got to sharpen her sleuthing skills to chip away at the mystery and prove her neighbors’ innocence—before someone else gets picked off…



This is another great installment in this series!  Jaymie is thrown into the middle of another murder when the body is found in her backyard.  The murder weapon throws the light onto some characters but I will say that I never suspected the killer to be this person!  There are quite a few motives by various individuals and any one of them could have done it and one of them did!  Add to the top of this, friction between her mom and her boyfriend’s mother…who is a bit overprotective.  Hello, he is a grown man not a teenager!  Anyway, a lot happens in this book and Victoria leads you around some corners while laying out the clues for you to figure out who-done-it.

We enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next one and give this book 4 paws.
