Fogged Inn is the fourth book in the Maine Clambake series and winter has arrived in Maine. Julia and Chris have just opened Gus's Too,transforming Gus's diner in into a fine dining restaurant during the winter months. Just after they finally open the restaurant, a dead man is found in the walk in cooler and Julia is thrown into the middle of yet another mystery, this one spanning decades.
I really enjoyed this, the plot was really well done; I confess I had no idea where it was going until the end. So many twists and turns that my head was spinning! Truly, this plot of dizzying; very well crafted and kept me turning pages well into the night.
I liked that Julia, a tiny bit high and mighty because she helped the police solve 3 other murders, got a bit of a comeuppance in the story. Between that and the confrontation with Chris, I felt like Julia grew as a character. The hallmark of this series has always been the rich characters, and I enjoy that more dimension is added as the series progresses.
In that same vein, though, I don't understand this whole story line with Jaime. I don't feel it adds anything to the series. Perhaps it will at some point, but for now it's just filler.
Overall, a great addition to an already great series and one I highly recommend.
