A favorite writer is hard to find

I have been a Leslie Meier fan and so instead of checking out her books from the library I decided to collect all of her books "The Lucy Stone Mysteries" for myself. So I will use this review for all of the books I have ordered. I enjoy a good mystery which keeps me guessing. Her books do that as well as being entertaining. Thank you, Mr. Kim Sessions Mesa, Arizona

Thanksgiving, murder and Indians

Lucy Stone and her family live in Tinker's Cove, Maine. Her son Toby is coming home for the first time from college for Thanksgiving. They are awaiting his arrival, she probably more than the others. It had been hard on her having Toby gone. She is kept busy with her work as a journalist for the Pennysaver, the weekly newspaper. She attends the meetings of the Tinker's Cove Board of Selectmen. Many of the meetings are long and tedious. That was before the ancestors of the Metinnicut Indians are trying to get the Metinnicut recognized as an official Indian tribe. At one of the meetings, discussion gets quite heated when discussing their proposed casino.Curt Nolan was a very outspoken advocate of the Metinnicut tribe and the casino. He ruffled many people with his abrupt ways. Then he is found dead behind the refreshments stand at the local high school football game on Thanksgiving.Not only did Toby come home for Thanksgiving, but he brought friends. Friends that were not anticipated by Lucy. She didn't get to have long talks with Toby as she had hoped. She barely got to see him, let alone talk to him. Lucy is having a tough time dealing with this.Then Miss Tilley gets Lucy to agree to look into Curt's death. She doesn't want to do it because her husband, Bill, had explicity told her not to. But, Miss Tilley can be quite persuasive. Lucy also agrees to take Kadjo, Curt Nolan's dog, since he no longer has a home. She is afraid that Bill will be upset, but he accepts the new dog into the family without any problem.I like this series a lot. Lucy and her family are your every day average family. She just ends up involved in investigating murders. And she always ends up putting herself and sometimes her family or friends in danger. This book is especially good what with the added stress of Thanksgiving and Toby's return to spice up her life.I always enjoy mysteries set in New England, especially Maine. The descriptions of the area are very enjoyable and make me feel like I've been there.I highly recommend this book and the whole series.

A roller coaster ride of fun!

Leslie Meier is an inspirational author. Turkey Day Murder is, in one word, delightful. The plot of this story in Tinker Cove, Maine proves to be innovating. It's a page-turner at its best. What I want to know, and hopefully one of Leslie Meier's readers can help me, is when Leslie Meier's next mystery arrives in bookstores. I haven't heard anything since Turkey Day Murder. I'm worried. Leslie Meier is simply the best mystery writer of all. I hope she hasn't stopped writing...

The Best!!

There are no words to describe the authenticity of Leslie Meier's latest book of fiction. Turkey Day Murder is simply the best. Readers who have not had the opportunity to read any of the Lucy Stone mysteries, pick up a copy of Turkey Day Murder. If you want suspense, mystery, and a few laughs, this book is for you. Kudos for Leslie Meier!!

A warm cosy mystery

Long before the first European even dreamed of crossing the Atlantic, the Metinnicut tribe considered what is now the United States their home. By the 1800s, the tribe became extinct killed by the Anglos through either disease or war. Two hundred years later the only artifact left that is genuinely Metinnicut in origin is an Indian club in the local museum. Once a year, the club leaves its locale to be used in a high school game.Many of the residents of Tinker's Cove have some Metinnicut blood flowing through their veins and demand the Feds grants them tribal status. The reasons divide the Metinnicut descendants between those who desire recognition and those who see job opportunities with a casino. However, someone takes offense to the casino opponents killing an individual. Reporter Lucy Stone of the weekly Pennysaver has studied the issue from various perspectives and begins to investigate the homicide hoping to ferret out the perpetrator as she has done on other murder cases.Lucy Meir is an expert at writing culinary-amateur sleuth novels that employ average people as protagonists and even as villains. The audience visualizes life in a small New England village during the holiday season. The mystery in TURKEY DAY MURDER is easy to follow, flows forward rather quickly, and ends with a genuine feel that makes the work a gourmand's delight.Harriet Klausner
