Book Description

When innkeeper Natalie Barnes volunteers to host the Cranberry Island Clambake at the Gray Whale Inn, she's looking forward to good food, good friends -- and maybe even a bit of good press. The day is perfect and the event as smooth as Natalie's crème anglaise -- until a mysterious illness grips several islanders, and the police finger the inn's blueberry pies as the culprit. Will Natalie sniff out the source of the poisoned pies before she -- and the Gray Whale Inn -- end up in hot water? (Includes the Gray Whale Inn recipe for Double-Berry Lemon Muffins.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wishing I was at Cranberry Island!!! May 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes it can be hard to really get into a short story; that is certainly not the case here. It's been awhile since I've had the pleasure of reading a new Gray Whale Inn book, and this sweet little tale drew me right back to beautiful Cranberry Island. I wished I was at Natalie's clambake, feeling the ocean breeze and tasting her yummy baked goods. This is a perfect appetizer for anyone who has yet to try this delicious series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect antidote for a blue mood! May 1, 2012
By Carla
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this lighthearted short mystery and feel as refreshed as having had a good cup of tea and piece of blueberry pie with my best friend.I can't wait for the next bit of intrigue to stir up in Natale's kitchen. This short story is a great way to get started on a fun cozy mystery series by Karen MacInerney. The bonus recipe for Double Berry Lemon Muffins looks yummy!

1.0 out of 5 stars No mystery August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This 17 page book takes 10 to 15 minutes to read there is no mystery. People get sick within 3 pages she knows who did it. Sorry but short story was too disappointing no twist or even more than 2 suspects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet July 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of this mystery series and think the books are wonderful. I was delighted to find this short story yesterday, immediately one-clicked on my Kindle, and read it last night. It was a delight to enter the world of coastal Maine for a little bit -- like taking a mini-vacation. It is very short (probably read the entire thing in about 10 minutes) which was my only disappointment but the descriptions of the island and the characters were wonderful and I am thrilled to learn another full-length novel will be coming out next year. I wait impatiently for them each time.

If you are a fan of the series, I think you will really enjoy this. If you aren't a fan, it's probably too short and fluffy to give you a good sense of the rest of the books. If you like Laura Childs' Tea Shop mysteries, I think you will enjoy these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cozy mystery short story! January 22, 2016
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is a real treat for lovers of the Gray Whale Inn series. It would also be a good introduction to the series for someone who wants to try it out. Innkeeper Natalie is a very likable heroine, who left her life in Texas behind to open an inn on the Maine coast. Here she is hosting a summer clambake, and when guests begin to get sick Natalie's blueberry pies get the blame. Naturally, she sets out to clear her name and find the culprit. In the wide world of cozy mysteries, the Gray Whale Inn mysteries stand out. They have a great sense of place, interesting recurring characters, and intriguing mysteries. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great June 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've often vacationed in Maine, and Karen MacInerney's novels remind me of the pleasant summers I've spent there. Cranberry Island - the setting for this mystery - truly represents what you see in small-town Maine. And, yes, there really are Cranberry Isles - two of them, called Great Cranberry and Little Cranberry - just off the coast near Acadia National Park. MacInerney's murder mystery is very well written. Not only does it accurately describe life in Maine, but it also sets up and solves a great mystery. Her writing makes it very easy to follow what is actually a quite complex murder, with multiple suspects and no easy solution. Complete with excellent character descriptions and interesting plot twists, this book is one you won't be able to put down until you've finished it. Superb read!

I really like these books. A very good mystery and it is interesting to see how an inn runs. The characters are very interesting and have good chemistry. I like these books that have a numbered series.
