Life in Tinker¿s Cove, Maine is changing and some locals believe not for the better. Next door to Lucy Stone¿s home is five modular houses that make up Prudencea Path development the old Pratt home used to be there before he sold the property to standoffish Fred Stanton. Fred¿s wife Mimi is unpopular because if someone fails to do what she demands, she complains to the proper authorities causing that person some trouble. Lucy meets her new neighbors when she invites them to join a bake sale to raise money for charity.----------------- Mimi fails to show up at the bake sale so the others ¿deputize Lucy to find her. When she enters her home she finds Mimi dead with a knife protruding from her chest. In her role as a reporter Lucy investigates in her role as a mother Lucy worries about her cheerleading daughter who seems troubled. Lucy thinks the latter has something to do with the high school senior football players their coach Buck Burkhart allows them plenty of freedom. Rumors abound that he encourages them to take liberties with the cheerleaders and to haze others he and the administration deny this. At Mimi¿s funeral, Lucy sees a homeless man, whom she later links to the coach. Not long afterward, the intrepid reporter finds she is in a déjà vu scenario as a determined killer wants her dead.------------------ Leslie Meier¿s mysteries are quaint down home amateur sleuth tales (though Lucy is a journalist so has some experience) starring a protagonist who juggles being a mother and wife with being a reporter. Her desire to see justice served always places her in danger luck has been on her side which is why she still lives. BAKE SALE MURDER is a fine who-done-it combined with a strong family crisis with Lucy solving the murder and taking care of her loved ones in her unique fashion leading to an enjoyable family oriented mystery.--------------------- Harriet Klausner

Not only had I started to lose interest a mere 10 pages in, but when the group met in the donut shop to talk about school supplies kids needed and a character actually said "floppy disks, I was over it." Floppy disks? Really?

Copyright says 2006, how outdated is the author who is putting things like floppy disks and long winded paragraphs about hedges and complaining about change and growth? I'm not a picky reader, nor do I review often, but this book was not worth my time!

    Not the best, not the worst book

    This $2.99 book was a pretty good read for the money. There were a few editing problems. The murders and violence were non-graphic. There was no sex, religion, romance or cursing. I too, laughed about the floppy disc. I guess the school either had very old computers or the author is technophobic. I do not even think a person can purchase floppies anymore. So funny. I found this book to be a fast, light, entertaining read. I had a problem with Sara's father. He thought it was okay for his daughter to be tormented by the jocks, if it helped them win the championship. This really upset me. I do not know why the author added this little tidbit. It did not add anything to the storyline and made the father a jerk. This book is not even close to the worst book ever read as one reviewer implied, nor is it the best as another stated, it is just a middle of the road entertainment, which will not give a person nightmares or make them ponder deep thoughts. For ages 15 and up.

    Fun, quick to read cozy mystery.

    A group of women want to raise money for a good cause by having a bake sale. One of them is found murdered. Is one of the other women a murderer? Our journalist heroine finds herself in the middle of the mystery.

    Disappointed

    Did not care for the main character or her personality. Story was long winded and boring. There was no excitement and all I wanted to do was finish the book. Not interested in reading any more of her books.
