Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After Lucy Stones neighbor is found dead on her kitchen floor with a knife in her back, the small-town homemaker and part-time reporter is determined to find the womans killer.

Review:

"In Meier's disjointed 13th Lucy Stone mystery (after 2005's New Year's Eve Murder), the Tinker's Cove, Maine, newspaper reporter has a whole subdivision of peculiar neighbors around her once peaceful farmhouse, and anonymous letters are arriving at her office. The unknown penman alleges that the new football coach, Buck Burkhart, is condoning unsavory behavior by the high school's senior football players toward the junior players and the cheerleaders, one of whom is Lucy's daughter, Sara. But no one is talking or listening, as the coach launches his lackluster team into a victorious season. Then Lucy finds Burkhart's neighbor, one of her volunteer bakers, knifed to death in her kitchen. And what about the homeless man? The philandering veterinarian? The victim's bad-tempered husband? The author makes only a halfhearted effort to connect all the dots, while the one big break in the murders comes, unpleasantly and literally, through Lucy's dog, Libby." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Life hasn't been the same for Lucy Stone since local developer Fred Stanton and his constantly complaining wife, Mimi, built five homes next door to her farmhouse. When Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, Lucy makes a shocking discovery: Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor--dead. While the police investigate, Lucy gets busy following her own leads, though some people clearly don't appreciate her snooping. But when a rock with a threatening note attached comes crashing through her window, Lucy's more determined than ever to uncover the truth...even if it means breaking a few eggs along the way.
