Smug Harbor Smash - Recipes

When I look for caches to do, I'm always looking for ones that have something interesting about them. Either they have to be in an historical location, have an unusual cache container or there might be something fun to see or do at the cache location itself.

We recently did a couple of caches at the LBL (Land Between the Lakes) area in Kentucky. The LBL is a National Recreation Area that extends between Kentucky and Tennessee. Rich in history pertaining to the Civil War, the area was then controversial with the development of the Tennessee Valley Authority and the subsequent condemnation of land and removal of area farmers in order to impound the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers so they could form Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. The area then became known as the Land Between the Lakes and attractions were added such as the Nature Center, a buffalo range, The Homeplace farm, and hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping. Today it's a beautiful area dedicated to many different types of outdoors activities.

One of the caches that I chose was LBL Cache. I picked this cache along with 2 others because they were in an area of the LBL that we had never explored before, it was going to be a strenuous hike to get to all three of them and there was something cool to see at each location.

First up was this cache and when we left from the parking area there was a nice wide trail leading to the top of a hill. We started up the trail but my GPS quickly pointed off to the right, so we found a narrow side trail and began following that. Within 300 feet we were directed off trail and started some serious bush-wacking up a steep incline. I feel bad that I don't have any pictures to show you of this part, but I was too busy trying to stay on my feet, not slide backwards down the hill and follow the GPS. Grabbing my camera was not an option at this point. Let's just say it was treacherous and Chablis actually broke her aluminum hiking pole in the process - it snapped right in half. Man down!

Here's some photo's of what we just climbed up.

Once we scrambled to the top of the hill, we had a nice view of the lake and bay below us. Since all the trees haven't leafed out yet, the view was pretty clear.

We looked around and quickly located the cache - I mean, first things first, right? Then we turned our attention to this old, rusted tanker nearby. It really makes one wonder how in the world an oil tanker came to be abandoned at the very top of an extremely steep hill. We all took turns climbing around on it.

My GPS was bouncing around like crazy up there, so I sat on top of the tanker and waited for it to settle down so I could determine which way to head for the next geocache.

New Series Countdown… First Snug Harbor Mystery Releases in TWO WEEKS.

It’s only two weeks until A Killer Ending, the first Snug Harbor mystery, hits the shelves!

Many of you met bookseller Max Sayers in Anchored Inn, the tenth Gray Whale Inn mystery. The new Snug Harbor: Seaside Cottage Books series is a companion series to the Gray Whale Inn mysteries. It’s set in bucolic Snug Harbor, Maine… and is chock full of cookies, books, and, of course… murder.

Early readers are raving about A Killer Ending, Max’s first adventure…

“Loved the book! — Vicki H.

“This is a great book! Max is someone I want to get to know better. She’s on her way forward and she has an interesting cast of characters to travel with her. And I love Snug Harbor, Maine!” — Karen E.

“I really loved this story and am definitely looking forward to the next!!” — Federica D.

“I love the book… I feel like I know Max already and I’m really rooting for her. And I love that it’s in Maine… it’s a little mental vacation there reading!” — Tyna D.

A KILLER ENDING
Books, beach roses… and bodies.

Bookseller and recent divorcée Max Sayers has risked her life savings to start a fresh chapter with the purchase of Seaside Cottage Books in cozy Snug Harbor, Maine. But she’s barely opened the shop’s doors when her new storybook life takes a dark turn. The morning after the grand opening–featuring a famous author who shows up at the store on the arm of Max’s ex-husband–Max’s rescue dog Winston finds a dead man on the beach behind the shop. The murder weapon? One of the bookstore’s doorstops, an antique flatiron.

Will Max solve the case before the murderer strikes again?

Or will her bright new beginning turn into a killer of an ending?

You can pre-order your ebook on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for those of you who love the feel of a real book, the paperback will be available on release day (as will the Kobo edition).

if you haven’t read the first chapter of A Killer Ending yet, you can read it here. Check back next week for Chapter Two… and join my Reader’s Circle (at the top of the page) for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card!

Caribbean Pork Roast

This Caribbean pork roast recipe is perfect for your next tropical themed dinner party or for entertaining on your boat. We use an oven in this recipe, but if you don’t have an oven on your boat, you can easily make it in a slow cooker. If you were at home, you could also use a Dutch Oven, but because it has to cook on the stovetop for at least three hours, I wouldn’t recommend doing that on a boat (at least a small boat like ours).

The Love of Caribbean Food

Since our honeymoon in Antigua back in 2003, Scott and I have visited the Caribbean annually. We love everything about the islands, including their food. That’s why I make it as often as I do Italian food. One of my favorite Caribbean cookbooks is At Blanchard’s Table: A Trip to the Beach Cookbook.

Their first book, A Trip to the Beach: Living on Island Time in the Caribbean was about how they opened a restaurant in Anguilla moving from the East Coast. I recommend both of them! Of course, if it’s about sailing and the Caribbean, I recommend a ton of books!

Back to the Pork Roast

This pork roast recipe can be used on a Pork Loin, Pork Tenderloin or Pork Shoulder Roast. It’s best to make the marinade the night before and let it marinate overnight.

I pair this recipe with my Grilled Sweet Potatoes and Caribbean Slaw for the perfect meal!

Be sure to let us know what your favorite Caribbean recipes are and share wit us. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for more great ideas! Cheers, Scott & Ally


What a impressive start to a new series!

Max Sayers is starting a new life for herself. Recently divorced, Max decides to buy a bookstore and move to Snug Harbo,r Maine. She has put her life savings into the bookstore and hopes to make her dreams come true. But things don’t go that smoothly for Max. She’s barely opened her shop when things take a dark turn. At the grand opening, her ex-husband shows up on the arm of the featured author for the day&aposs event. Then Max’s dog finds a dead body on the beach behind the shop.

She has put her life savings into the bookstore and hopes to make her dreams come true. But things don’t go that smoothly for Max. She’s barely opened her shop when things take a dark turn. At the grand opening, her ex-husband shows up on the arm of the featured author for the day's event. Then Max’s dog finds a dead body on the beach behind the shop. The body of a man who was seen giving Max some bad news for her and her shop. Max has to get involved in the investigation to clear her name and to save her business.

This is a great beginning to a new cozy series. The characters are realistic and likable. Max’s character is relatable, I feel as though I have met a new friend. I love the description of the bookstore and town of Snug Harbor. The mystery is well-developed and moves at a steady pace. There is no shortage of suspects and plenty of twists and turns to keep you engaged in the story and guessing whodunit. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to see where Max’s new life takes her.

All thoughts and opinions are my own, and in no way, I have been influenced by anyone. . more

I volunteered to beta-read this first-in-a-series for Karen MacInerney.

Max Ayers has opened a bookshop in her hometown of Snug Harbor after she divorced her husband of 20+ years, only to find someone dead behind her shop the next day. Everyone seems to have a motive, but the police suspect Max! She decides to find the real killer before the dream of being a bookstore owner also dies.

This is a great beginning to a cozy series. The conversations are believable, lots of mentions of real books, and I volunteered to beta-read this first-in-a-series for Karen MacInerney.

This is a great beginning to a cozy series. The conversations are believable, lots of mentions of real books, and there's some humor as well as tense moments. I'm also looking forward to the published book with recipes inside. It's a good, clean read with no gore, sex, or profanity. . more

I’ve enjoyed the author’s previous series but admittedly have taken a break from the last few installments. Seem to recall neither series being quite so manic as this story. We’re introduced to main character, Max, who made the questionable decision to move with all her possessions to a new town the day before her new book store is set to open. No self-induced stress there.

No self-induced stress there. Her incredibly able assistant has taken care of everything, including finding random cousins to move her stuff from trailer to apartment. Did the necessity of moving into her apartment not occur to Max? Through a somewhat convoluted chain of events (view spoiler) [including being a full grown adult yet still sinking your life savings into a piece of real estate without benefit of a title search (hide spoiler)] Max finds herself in an ugly legal situation facing off with the town’s bully and a power hungry politician.

This was a quick read but I can’t say I enjoyed it. The many unpleasant characters are offset by too few “nice” people. Even Max’s mother goes out of her way to show she clearly does not approve of Max’s divorce. There is one good friend from school who’s also living in town, Denise. She and the assistant Bethany do the heavy lifting of providing sympathetic characters. Other females who could potentially end up being friends (view spoiler) [Gretchen and Meryl (hide spoiler)] were dangled as possible red herrings but weren’t mentioned again so not sure what their future will be in Snug Harbor. This book has LOT going on, possibly most of it unnecessary. Ex-husband showing up at book store with guest author, unethical politicians, corrupt developers, Prohibition rumrunners, hidden treasure map, dealing with conflicting real estate claims. It’s one thing piled on after another.

I’m also not sure whether the crossover between the Gray Whale Inn series and this debut seems odd. It’s either very clever or cloyingly meta. . more

The store opening is not without wrinkles.

Then to cap off the evening she finds a dead body the next morning.

Twists and turns and lots of misunderstandings and Max is able to solve the murder and find her way in the community. It's going to be a great series. . more
