Description

New York Times-Bestselling Author:"Longtime Lucy Stone series readers will be happy to catch up on life in Tinker's Cove in this cozy Christmas mystery."—Library Journal It's Christmas in Tinker's Cove, Maine, and Lucy Stone is excited about her acting debut in the town's production of A Christmas Carol. But not everyone is full of cheer. Tinker's Cove has fallen on hard times this year, and with so many residents struggling to make ends meet, Christmas festivities are a luxury some can't afford. But the story's not so bleak at Downeast Mortgage, whose tightfisted owners, Jake Marlowe and Ben Scribner, are raking in profits from everyone's misfortune. Half the town is in their debt, so when the miserly Marlowe is murdered, the mourners are few and the suspects are many... "Engaging...[a] satisfying conclusion."—Publishers Weekly "I like Lucy Stone a lot, and so will readers."—Carolyn Hart, New York Times-bestselling author of the Death on Demand Mysteries

        August 12, 2013
        The Great Recession casts its shadow over Meier’s engaging 20th Lucy Stone mystery (after Easter Bunny Murder). The day after Thanksgiving, skinflint Jacob Marlowe, who, as a partner in Downeast Mortgage, is responsible for dozens of recent foreclosures, receives a package in the mail marked “Do Not Open Till Christmas.” When Jacob tries to open it, the package explodes, killing him and destroying the Victorian mansion where he lived alone in Tinker’s Cove, Maine. Lucy Stone, a reporter for the town newspaper, has been interviewing locals in financial trouble, and is soon rehearsing for her role as Mrs. Cratchit in a community theater production of A Christmas Carol, so she hasn’t much time for sleuthing. But when a second suspicious package appears outside the Downeast Mortgage office, Lucy knows she must do what she can to stop a desperate killer. Thanks to Lucy, Jacob’s Scrooge-like partner has a change of heart at the satisfying conclusion. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
