Surprise Read of '09

I am not a book snob. I will read anything. However, I have never been a fan of mysteries, and had dismissed the whole genre of 'theme mysteries' as kind of lame.
Then one day on Amazon, I stumbled upon the Gray Whale Inn mysteries by Karen MacInerney. They're set on one of the islands off Bar Harbor, Maine, and the protagonist is the owner/innkeeper of an old porny inn! Along with murder solving, the books are full of descriptions of inn porn, and the protagonist is always baking.

Since I love Bar Harbor and my favourite fantasy job would be to run a porny old inn on the coast and bake all day, I gave the first one a try and immediately snatched up the other two, and am now anxiously awaiting the release of the fourth. I even emailed the author and asked her to kindly hurry up.
Oh, and they have recipes!
