Resident amateur sleuth Lucy Stone has a lot on her plate this Thanksgiving… Besides fixing dinner for 12, having to come up with something suitable for two vegan college kids to eat, write for the pennysaver, and deal with her chauvinistic boss, she also has a murder to solve!
Curt Nolan and his chicken murderer of a dog are hardly welcome in small town Tinker’s Cove, making his murder next to impossible to solve. Everyone is suspect! Lucy puts her journalistic skills to work and gets a bit too close to the killer… Maybe she should of listened to her boss and stayed home to cook and clean for her family? But, then she just wouldn’t be the Lucy Stone everyone loves!
There is a lot to like about this small town murder mystery, Turkey Day Murder, by Leslie Meier. Lucy Stone is very likable, and her antics are hilarious! This was my first Lucy Stone mystery, but it won’t be my last. I already have my eye on the sixth Lucy Stone mystery, “Christmas Cookie Murderer”.
Fans of murder mysteries and holiday stories alike will enjoy this book. I gave it four stars!
