Overview

For Lucy Stone, the best thing about Christmas in Tinker's Cove has always been the annual Cookie Exchange. But the usual generosity and goodwill is missing from this year's event which turns out to be a complete disaster.

Petty rivalries and feuds that have long been simmering finally come to a boil, leaving a bad taste in the mouths of many guests, including Lee Cummings who accuses Tucker Whitney of stealing her recipe for low-fat, sugar-free cookies. But the icing on the cake is when Tucker is found strangled in her apartment on the following morning.

Who could've wanted Tucker dead badly enough to kill her? Despite all of the ingredients for danger, Lucy sets out on the trail of a murderer and soon uncovers a Christmas secret best left wrapped.

"As usual, Meier deftly combines a realistic depiction of Lucy's life as a hard-working mother with a satisfying mystery plot." --Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Toby Bromberg
The Christmas Cookie Murder is an irresistible treat for those of us who love a solid, traditional whodunit. As intriguing as the mystery is, Leslie Meier also paints a realistic picture of small towns and family life, and readers will get equally caught up in Lucy’s life.

Really good story line. Easy light reading although some of her other stories were better, this one is well worth reading. Leslie Meier is a great authoress that characters come alive for the reader.

Leslie Meier's latest Lucy Stone mystery is a pleasant way to spend a weekend. Nothing too deep or profound, Christmas Cookie Murder filled the bill nicely for me when I wanted a fast and fun read.

This was my first glimpse into the life of Lucy Stone, and I find now I should go back to book 1 and advance from there, for I think that I've missed out on much of the backstory of her life and family.

The story takes place in Tinker's Cove, Maine and features Lucy as reporter for the town's paper and inveterate amateur sleuth, this time the victim is a young woman rumored to be the reason for the breakup of the marriage of the town's dentist and his wife. Did the good doctor do it? The police think so and arrest him. But suspicion also hovers over the head of the good doctor's wife, who had been overheard to mouth vile thoughts toward the deceased. Add to this a growing concern over the use of alcohol by local teens, the influx of hard drugs into the tiny coastal town, a police chief whose ideas and attitudes come into direct conflict with just about everyone and Lucy has a lot to ponder and solve. And how she solves the mystery is quite by fluke.

Even though this is my first Lucy Stone mystery, I have the rest in my ToBeRead pile and look forward to learning more about Lucy and Tinker's Cove.

These Lucy Stone books get better with each new installment. They are easy to read and don't require much thinking on the reader's part. Perfect for a little relaxation reading between more serious heavier msterial. Stephanie Clanahan
