MAIL-ORDER MURDER
As if baking holiday cookies, knitting a sweater for her husband's gift, and making her daughter's angel costume for the church pageant weren't enough things for Lucy Stone's busy Christmas schedule, she's also working nights at the famous mail-order company Country Cousins. But when she discovers Sam Miller, its very wealthy founder, dead in his car from an apparent suicide, the sleuth in her knows something just doesn't smell right.

Taking time out from her hectic holiday life to find out what really happened, her investigation leads to a backlog of secrets as long as Santa's Christmas Eve route. Lucy is convinced that someone murdered Sam Miller. But who and why? With each harrowing twist she uncovers in this bizarre case, another shocking revelation is exposed. Now, as Christmas draws near and Lucy gets dangerously closer to the truth, she's about to receive a present from Santa she didn't ask for—a killer who won't be satisfied until everyone on his shopping list is dead, including Lucy herself.

"Lucy Stone is an endearing sleuth."
—Dorothy Cannell

    I love holiday themed cozy mysteries so I was excited to read th

    I love holiday themed cozy mysteries so I was excited to read the first book in the Lucy Stone series. It was originally published as "Mail Order Murder". It was a little bit slow in the beginning but it was fun to get to know Lucy and the residents of Tinker's Cove, Maine. I liked reading about Lucy's holiday preparations. This is a light, fun read. I wish the story had a little more suspense but all in all it got me into the Christmas spirit.

    I have read several books in this series. The entire series is fun. I would suggest reading this series from the beginning.... it's not necessary but you get to follow Lucy's family and the residents of Tinker's Cove and how their relationships develop. This is a sure bet if you want an easy read that lets you escape for an evening.

    This is the first book in the holiday driven, cozy mystery serie

    This is the first book in the holiday driven, cozy mystery series,  featuring Lucy Stone.  Though the "mystery" element of this story was just average, I thoroughly enjoyed the seasonal story of all the activities, family relationships, and mishaps that made up, wife and mother of three, Lucy's life during the Christmas season.




    Lucy works for a mail order company in her small town of Tinker's Cove, Maine.  When she finds her boss's snow covered car, with it's motor running, sitting in the office parking lot, she was shocked to realize that a hose was connected to the tail pipe with the other end in the car window. Was this a suicide or a murder?  When her friend, and policeman,  almost dies in a strange car crash, murder seems to be striking again.  




    The mystery was interesting, if tied up a bit to easily at the end, but Lucy, and her friends, family, and small town Maine life, was a real winner.  Since there are many many more in this series, I'm assuming that the mysteries get stronger as the series progresses.  Looking forward to read more of Lucy's holiday murder mysteries!

    Puts you in the spirit!

    Loved reading this book, I felt like it was Christmas time and I just love the way that Meier cultivates her characters. It's a town I would like to live in and people I would like to hang out with.
