Book Review: The Bake Sale Murder

Bake Sale Murder (Lucky Stone, #13)Bake Sale Murder by Leslie Meier
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Bake Sale Murder is a cozy mystery that is the 13th book in the Lucy Stone Mystery series. I didn't have any trouble jumping right in without having read any of the previous books in the series.

Lucy Stone is a reporter for the Pennysaver in her small town, Tinker's Cove, Maine. One morning she discovers her neighbor Mimi stabbed to death in her kitchen. At the same time, Lucy is investigating allegations of hazing against the high school football coach that are being made in anonymous letters sent to the Pennysaver office.

This book was mildly entertaining but did not have the "can't put down til I find out who did it" factor that I feel mysteries should have. The characters were superficial and the writing perfunctory. Everything came together too quickly at the end with a lot of dragging through the middle.
