Book Trivia hosted by Barbara Ross

Happy Saturday! Can you believe we are half way through the month of April. It's trivia time and today's lovely host is Barbara Ross. Barbara is the author of  A Maine Clambake Series.  The reader with the most questions correct will win a copy of Musseled Out! Leave answers and email in the comments for a chance to win.

Here we go and Good Luck:

Based on the first two books in the Maine Clambake series, Clammed Up and Boiled Over:

1) In Clammed Up, Julia Snowden returns to the coastal Maine town where she grew up to save her family's failing clambake business. What is the name of that town?

2) Back in town, Julia starts patronizing a restaurant that's been the same since she was a child. What is the name of the curmudgeonly restaurant owner?

3) Fee and Vee Snuggs run their business across the street from Julia's family home. What type of business is it?

4) In Boiled Over, Julia works on a project for a town committee. What is the committee organizing?

5) In Boiled Over, where is the body hidden?

6) What is the name of the island where Julia's family holds their clambakes?
