Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Reporter Lucy Stone juggles a tough deadline -- and a dead groom -- when she pursues a killer who will do anything to keep from being unveiled.
Publishers Weekly
Tinker's Cove, Maine, is the cozily evoked setting of Meier's lighthearted Lucy Stone novels, which are usually set around holidays or significant life events. Here a harried Lucy is trying to juggle children, husband and a full-time job when her best friend, Sue Finch, asks for help in planning the wedding of Sue's mother, Sidra, and Internet millionaire Ron Davitz. Lucy agrees to let the ceremony take place in her backyard gazebo. When the groom and his social-climbing mother arrive on a large yacht, tempers start flaring among the townspeople. Local fishermen are being displaced from their moorings in the harbor to make way for summer visitors in an attempt to raise much-needed revenues for the town. Davitz proves to be a singularly graceless, stereotypical computer nerd, but when he's found floating dead in the water, suspicion quickly focuses on an old flame of the bride. Lucy once more finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, and at first she fears that Sue, or Sue's temperamental husband, might have done something drastic to get rid of a potential father-in-law he despised. In a leisurely paced investigation, Lucy perseveres through various irritations to dig up the truth. Despite the obvious pall cast by the murder of the groom, Meier manages to pull off a happy ending, replete with a charming wedding in which her fans will rejoice.

    engaging cozy

    The residents of Tinker¿s Cove, Maine enjoy staying away from the hustle and bustle lifestyle of big city living as found in Bangor or Portland. Crime is rare in the tiny hamlet, but when a homicide occurs all the locals know that Pennysaver reporter Lucy Stone can found be in the midst of the investigation. <P>Currently, Lucy works on a more difficult project than murder. She is helping her best friend plan a wedding reception. Things go so wrong right from the start so that Lucy wonders if Murphy was an optimist, as he never had to deal with t wealthy groom¿s mother who has her own ideas that she expects implemented. The two families hate each other, but the townsfolk back the bride¿s side because the groom¿s brood is interfering with the local livelihood. When the groom¿s body is found floating in the nearby sea, a victim of murder, almost everyone within the town¿s radius had a motive, making a plethora of suspects for Lucy to learn who had the opportunity. <P>The Lucy Stone mysteries engage fans of cozies as the violence occurs off stage leaving the heroine and her who-done-it inquiries to share the starring roles. Lucy, her family, and those locals the reader meet seem genuine and very likable some in a more crustacean manner. On the other hand, the odious groom¿s family feel more like Robin Lynch drawing caricatures of the rich and famous. Still cozy fans will enjoy Leslie Meier¿s latest Stone adventure. <P>Harriet Klausner
