Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Preparations for a ballet school recital in Tinker's Cove, Mass., provide the setting for this second, determinedly domestic, Lucy Stone adventure, after Mail-Order Murder. Lucy, in her sixth month of pregnancy, is fully enmeshed in family life with her husband and three youngsters when her neighbor Caroline Hutton, mentor to ballet instructor Tatiana, disappears. The police say the 70-year-old former dancer has simply gone on vacation without telling anyone. Lucy and Tatiana aren't so sure, but Tatiana's recital preparations and Lucy's domestic demands preclude further investigation. Lucy lends her video camera to her friend Franny, who has been falsely accused of stealing from the hardware store where she works. The owner finds the recorder, confiscates it and sacks Franny, but when Lucy goes to the store to demand its return, she finds that the owner has been bludgeoned to death with the camera. When Franny is arrested for murder, Lucy resolves to save her. Meier links the missing neighbor and the murdered hardware store owner in this quirky, low-key puzzle, which is packed with the details of small-town, family life.

From Kirkus Reviews

A second visit to Maine's Tinker's Cove and homemaker-sleuth Lucy Stone (Mail Order Murder, 1991), pregnant again (her fourth) and at the center of village activities. The disappearance of retired dance teacher Caro Binney and the murder of nasty old hardware-store owner Morrill Slack have Lucy running in all directions, eventually tracking Caro, unmasking a slick lawyer in the process, and giving staunch support to wrongly accused Franny Small, Slack's longtime employee--all this sandwiched between school taxiing, Little League, ballet lessons, and helpful chats with women friends. An easygoing style, a few chuckles, but too heavy on cozy details, too lightweight in plotting and detection. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Diaper Bag Book!! Oct. 21 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Loved this book for how easy it was to throw it in the diaper bag and pick it up to read when I had a few moments! Long enough to develop characters well, but short enough for us busy Moms to read through the whole thing in less than a week (in between basketball practice and diaper changes). Thanks to Leslie Meier for providing a really fun mystery that was actually full of suspense to the end. A couple of times I thought I had it figured out, only to find later there may be yet another answer out there! Great Book!

4.0 out of 5 stars SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH LUCY STONE July 4 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A summer afternoon is the perfect time for enjoying the exploits of Tinker's Cove murder meddling sleuth Lucy Stone, and I recently decided to catch up with three such mysteries that have been sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read. So along with a blanket and some refreshments I took the first (The Tippy Toe Murder) to Forest Park, the legendary birthplace of the hot dog, the ice cream cone and iced tea at the 1904 Saint Louis World's Fair.
Settling under a very shady tree, I opened the book to discover that the annual ballet recital of the Tinker's Cove Academy of the Dance had been scheduled for June 18. But before that can take place Caroline Hutton, the retire ballet instructor disappears. Naturally Elizabeth and Sara, Lucy's daughters, are going to dance in the recital and Lucy is planning to videotape their rehearsal. Unfortunately, it seems that the Stone video camera is the only one in Tinker's Cove and Lucy is forever loaning it to someone. This time she has loaned it to Franny Small, and when Lucy goes to pick it up she discovers that it has been used to bash in the head of the town curmudgeon Morrill Stack.
Now with a missing woman and a murder, there's no way to keep Lucy from getting involved even though she is pregnant with her fourth child. As usual she is convinced the police have arrested the wrong person in the murder and she is determined to not only identify the murderer but also locate the missing woman both of which could have dire results for her. But when did that ever stop Lucy Stone?
Unfortunately in this book, the domestic violence/child abuse theme that runs through it gets in the way of the plot at times. Surely not every husband and wife in Tinker's Cove are abusing one another.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting twists in the story! June 24 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As with many series, the first book is not always the very best. I enjoyed this book once I was able to get through the beginning of it. Miss Meier covers the subject of child abuse in this book. There are some details that I wish that she had left out of the story. The rather graphic subject of child abuse does not fall into the catagory of a "cozy" mystery. I did enjoy how she pulled the story together at the end. There were a few good twists along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was a great book! April 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved every minute of this book, it was great! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially murder mystery fans. I love the way this book just starts right up with excitement instead of going on and on about the characters. My advice to Leslie Meier is: Keep Writing!
