    Fun Christmas Mystery

    In Nogged Off, Julia plans on a quick trip to NYC to move out of her apartment and sign it over to the young woman who was subletting it. Best-laid plans go awry when Julia discovers Imogene has quit her job after she gave her coworkers food poisoning with her eggnog. Before Julia quite realizes, Imogene is on her way to Maine and will be spending Christmas with Julia’s mom. Imogene seems to bumble from one disaster to another. The moving truck with Julia’s belongings from her apartment is stolen before it can be unloaded and when it is found, there’s an unpleasant surprise...a murdered man. This is a short story so the plot moves along quickly, with just the right balance between the holiday and the mystery. Grab a plate of Christmas cookies and settle in for a relaxing time

    Barbara Ross’ Nogged Off

    While Busman, Maine is busy preparing for the Christmas holiday, Julia Snowden of the Snowden Family Clambake Company is returning to New York to collect her belongings. She has been subletting her apartment so this will be her final trip to New York. When she arrives, she discovers the person, Imogen, who is subletting the apartment a hysterical mess. Seems the eggnog Imogen made for the Christmas party sent everyone who drank it to the hospital. Imogen is jobless, her boyfriend left her plus she has nowhere to go as she can’t afford the apartment. Julia offers to take Imogen to Busman, Maine to stay with Mrs. Snowden. But trouble seems to follow Imogen....... The moving truck with all Julia’s belonging from New York gets stolen out of Julia’s Mothers driveway. At the parade of boats when Santa arrives....Imogen manages to knock Santa into the water. At the decorated tree competition... Imogen manages to knock over all the trees. Then Imogen’s ex-boyfriend ends up murdered inside the stolen truck. But when the boyfriend shows up alive or is it his identical twin brother.....What is happening? Who is trying to fool whom? Was the office party eggnog problem caused on purpose? How is the Russian mob involved in all this? Join the feisty Julia as she protects her family and friends from the sinister evil lurking around the preparations for Christmas. Will she be able to figure out the puzzle confronting her? The secondary characters are well written, colorful, quirky and make the story interesting. The plot moves at a fast pace with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader glued to the book. It is an original and unusual story that will make the reader feel they are right there in Busman with the characters. There is a stop at the famous L.L. Beans plus mouthwatering recipes at the end of the book. This is book # 4.5 in the Maine Clambake Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand alone. The author weaves the past and present together effortlessly making the reader right at home on this scenic Maine adventure. Good read with suspense, mystery, romance and humor. I volunteered to read Nogged Off. Thanks to NetGallery and the publisher, Kensington Books for the opportunity. My opinion is voluntary and my own.

    Christmas in Maine

    Christmas time’s a coming and Julia Snowden is heading to NYC to pack up the last of the personal items in her apartment before she gives it up. But when she arrives, the woman subletting her apartment has just quit her job and can’t take the lease over, so Julia gets a truck and packs up the apartment, and her submitter, and heads back to Maine for Christmas. Something feels off to Julia when she spots a man sitting in a white car as she packs up, but thinks no more of it once she gets on the road. When she finally stops LL Bean for Imogen to get a coat, he sees the car again. It can’t be, can it? But she gets home and park the car, and ??Imogen, at her mother’s house and goes to her place to sleep. When she wakes up, the truck and all of her items are gone. Who stole it and all of her family heirlooms? Bah Humbug! When the truck is found, with Imogen’s ex boyfriend in the back, the pieces just don’t fit together correctly for Julia and she suspects someone has been a bad boy and makes some wild accusations. Is she right and will the police prove it before Julia’s Mother pays the ultimate price? This novella is the first I have read in this series and there are no gaping holes, so it is fine as a stand alone. Like the characters and am impressed with the reveals the author put together on this one. Well written and I look forward to reading more in this series.

    A Maine Clambake Mini Mystery!

    Nogged off by Barbara Ross is a part of the A Maine Clambake Mystery series. If you read Eggnog Murder which came out a year ago (three novellas in one book), then you have already enjoyed Nogged Off. Julia Snowden goes to clear out her Tribeca apartment and ends up taking Imogen Geinkes home to her mother’s house for the holidays. Murder and confusion soon ensues. I enjoyed reading Nogged Off. It is well-written and proceeds at a steady pace. Julia, Chris, Gus, Julia’s mother are all included in the story. It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. I thought the whodunit was clever with a surprising twist. In addition, there are some mysterious happenings at the Snowden house. They are beginning to wonder if the house is haunted. I enjoyed the humor sprinkled throughout Nogged Off. Nogged Off is an entertaining novella with a curious mystery, Christmas traditions, good food, family, friends, humor and a little mayhem.
