Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Despite all her volunteer work and family responsibilities, not to mention her part-time reporting job for her local paper, valiant Lucy Stone manages to maintain her poise in her seventh busy outing (after Christmas Cookie Murder). For Lucy, escorting a preschool field trip to a turkey farm, baking pies for charity or entertaining her husband's difficult clients and son's college roommate for Thanksgiving dinner is all part of her routine in rural Tinker's Cove, Maine. For Native American Carl Nolan, life is full of conflict, whether with his boss, the board of selectmen or the local museum's anthropologist. As Thanksgiving approaches, Lucy covers a town meeting at which the main agenda item is whether the selectmen will support the Metinnicut Indian tribe's petition for recognition by the federal government. Approval would enable the tribe to build a casino on land belonging to Nolan's employer. The ink on that story is barely dry when Nolan's body, his head smashed with a priceless tribal artifact, turns up at the high school Thanksgiving football game. When Lucy accepts the challenge to solve the crime, she finds no lack of suspects. Meier clearly establishes her characters' motives early on, and portrays smalltown life both realistically and sympathetically. Sadly, the story loses some of its impact in a constant stream of minutiae that should leave Lucy, along with readers, gasping for breath and longing for a few minutes of peace and quiet. (Oct.)

From Library Journal

Although much of her time is spent on family, fund-raising, and helping her best friend with day-care kids, Lucy Stone (Valentine Murder)Athe sleuthing reporter of Tinker's Corner, MEApromises an elderly friend that she will find out who murdered a confrontational local Native American. Recent selectmen board meetings regarding the Metinnicut Indians have been getting out of hand. Most of the townsfolk believe that the Natives want federal recognition only so that they can open a casino, but the dead man thought otherwise. Lightweight, approachable prose; cozy, small-town ambiance; and a down-to-earth sleuth make this a good choice for most collections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not One of the Best Oct. 15 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Writer/mother/detective Lucy Stone is busy working on interesting news stories, when one falls right into her lap. The death of Metinnicut Indian activist, Curt Nolan. Murdered with a war club. At least that's what was found in his head. Soon Lucy is investigating what seems like thousands of suspects, whom all had something against Curt, a person who seemed to make enemies wherever he went. While it seems easy enough to add a little investigating to her list of chores, it's not as easy as Lucy thinks. Especially since she could be the next to die.
I enjoyed the Lucy Stone Christmas mysteries. But this one just didn't do it for me. I feel that the novel was slow-moving, and at times, downright boring. I hope that my next Lucy Stone mystery is better than this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Turkey Tripe Nov. 27 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
By the time the murder is discovered, there has been so much character development and scene setting that readers probably won't care who the victim is or who did it. When the murderer was identified, I wished he had done in Lucy Stone first. The author did elicit a faint smile when Stone serves a turkey that had fallen on the kitchen floor. This book is as awful as the Thanksgiving meal the heroine serves her boring guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanksgiving, murder and Indians Nov. 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A warm cosy mystery Sept. 28 2000
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars I should have listened Jan. 2 2001
By A Customer
I just finished this book, the latest in a series all of which I have read and enjoyed. I read the review from the New England reader before buying, but since all the series titles were enjoyable, I bought and read anyway. I have to agree that this was by far the worst in the series. Lucy did not read as the same person as in the others. The mystery was hidden beneath a very cozy description of the real life of a working mother. Although it is very accurate, it does not make for a good mystery. I did not get to know any of the characters well enough to have the least idea what the outcome would be. It became an effort to remain interested, though the book was a quick read (perhaps because it lacked substance). I recommend you skip this title and try others in the series.
