TURKEY DAY MURDER
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
Curt Nolan, member of the Metinnicut Indian Tribe and resident of Tinkers Cove, Maine is a gruff person always involved in some disagreement or other. Lucy Stone, reporter for the local paper, has more than once seen Curt getting into an argument over some small matter. Curt has been even more vocal and disagreeable lately because of the upcoming legislation concerning a possible casino for the Metinnicuts.
When Curts bludgeoned body is discovered at the high school Thanksgiving football game, even Lucy is shocked. Curt could be nasty but he was never known to be truly vicious.
Juggling Thanksgiving dinner, four extra houseguests, and the demands
Domestic mysteries are an extremely popular subgenre and Leslie Meiers are among the best. Lucy Stone is immensely likeable and her reactions to situations, her relationship with her friends and family all ring true. This, combined with a well-plotted mystery, makes for an irresistible read. (Oct., 240 pp., $20.00)
