    Probably the best Lucy Stone novel I ve read Great storyline, the cast of characters was spectacular, and it was a real mystery I was actually stumped until the very end Would highly recommend

    This book started out pretty good but the prejudices and generalizations just got to be too much for me Basically, everyone that wasn t a liberal was a complete idiot I can t stand it when books push a certain way of thinking Won t be picking up this author again which is too bad, because I really liked the character at first.

    DNF 17% I can t handle anyof her dickhead, sexist husband and her pandering to him she gets a new job and he thinks it s unacceptable because dinner was at 630 and not 6 no thanks I think cozy mysteries are not for me, but we know i ll keep trying them anyway.

    Not a very successful mystery The twists didn t ring true, and I was maddened by the character s relationship which takes up a good part of the story I kept flipping back to see if perhaps I had missed something, and the book was actually set in the 60s Main personal conflict is that she wants to go to work, and the husband expects her to be at home cooking his dinner and taking care of the kids though the husband, when he gets home early, sits around drinking beer and feeling sorry for h Not a very successful mystery The twists didn t ring true, and I was maddened by the character s relationship which takes up a good part of the story I kept flipping back to see if perhaps I had missed something, and the book was actually set in the 60s Main personal conflict is that she wants to go to work, and the husband expects her to be at home cooking his dinner and taking care of the kids though the husband, when he gets home early, sits around drinking beer and feeling sorry for himself and wondering where his dinner might be

someone at the Tinker s Cove newspaper Investigative journalism is right up her alley and it isn t long before she has something to investigate after a bomb goes off at the elementary school The new vice principal, Carol Crane saves the day by rescuing a student still in the school and everyone hails her a hero However there isthan meets the eye with Carol and when she is found murdered there is no shortage of suspects as she wasn t quite as heroic as one would think.I hated this book I rarely have such strong negative words to say but I just can t hold back Below is a partial list of some of the things that bothered me the most Before I start ranting about my personal opinions I will say that this book felt greatly unfocused Lucy would have a revelation and would seemingly forget about it until a chapter or two later There were a few loose ends, and things that didn t always make sense There are some spelling and grammar issues so if that is a big button for you, proceed with caution The mystery itself is weak but one of her better ones so far Lucy working at the newspaper does make it so the book isabout mysteries than her personal life I originally started this series looking for a cozy where the sleuth is married in a good relationship Quickly, I found this wasn t that series but still enjoyed the brief glance into Lucy and Bill s life together This book found Lucy interested in another man and she even went as far to go to his apartment in the name of investigation and kiss him, I am absolutely disgusted by her behavior I don t care how long you are married, adultery is never OK or justifiable On top of that she doesn t tell her husband, she just makes it right in her own twisted little mind and that seems to be enough for her In the end of the book view spoiler the man she kisses and is attracted to are together when they solve the murder thus bringing their bond closer So she cheats on her husband with him, yes kissing is cheating Then he is painted to be some sort of white knight You have got to be kidding me hide spoiler The author didof a job developing the character that Lucy found sooooo attractive than she has done Lucy s husband in the past 4 books I go back and forth on whether or not I like Lucy in each book, I am firmly in camp do not like her one bit in this book She has a reliable, loving husband, 4 amazing kids, a house, and lives in a quaint town where she has lots of friends This isn t enough for her and she whines the entire book about how no one appreciates her, how her husband doesn t tell her that she s attractive any yet she doesn t express any appreciation for any of the things she has NOR does she tell her husband she still finds him attractive She complains about having to cook for him, even going to the point of swearing up and down that she will never make any tomato sauce again because it is too much work What is wrong with a woman who wants to be a housewife and take care of her kids Why is it always that she has to wantShe acts like the kids are old enough to be on their own but Zoe is only two years old and she just throws her in daycare all day while she goes about her business Her child is being raised by daycare A drastic contrast from the last book when she couldn t stand to be apart from her precious She is selfish, spoiled, and doesn t deserve the life she hasTasha Tudor I enjoy doing housework, ironing, washing, cooking, dishwashing Whenever I get one of those questionnaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down housewife It s an admirable profession, why apologize for it You aren t stupid because you re a housewife When you re stirring the jam you can read Shakespeare Tasha Tudor AmenExcuse me Leslie Meier, I resent you shoving your political and religious views down my throat in your books When I picked up your series I did not sign up to be subjected to someone using their books as a venue for their own personal agenda Yes, I recognize that these are your books and you may write whatever you want, it is still not something I want to read about Back to School Murder isn t the first book you did it in but this was definitely the one that I noticed it the most In the first Lucy Stone novel, Mistletoe Murder you view spoiler made it so the Reverend was the killer hide spoiler and in this book you made it so that the Reverend was a lech, seducing women, and cheating on his wife On top of that he was a fanatic who acted over the top in his interpretation of the bible You don t have to be religious or believe in God but you also don t have to depict them as horrible people in your books Not to mention your many shots at conservatives and the fact it is made extremely clear you are a liberal Ugh I had high hopes for this book after enjoying the last onethan the previous in the series but no I have up to book ten on my Kindle and am not sure I want to read that many In fact I will read ONEand if there is not a significant improvement I will be leaving this series behind in search of greener pastures.My thoughts on other books in the Lucy Stone series 1 Mistletoe Murder Also known as Mail Order Murder2 Tippy Toe Murder3 Trick or Treat Murder

    Another Lucy Stone re read for me, and I had forgotten the ending so that was a plus Excellent story with a clever mystery A

  9. Karol Karol says:

    I enjoy this series, despite Lucy s rather unlovable mate I wonder where this relationship will go as I read further into the series Lucy herself is likable, and this mystery was interesting So far I have found the books in this series to be fun, quick reads.

    I really have to confess, although I like the series, this particular one was very off putting for me As much as I tried to ignore it and concentrate on the story itself, the author s choice of bias in some situations became glaringly obvious I don t want to scream liberal or feminist but it was there in big bold descriptions The main character, Lucy, is working full time at the local paper temporarily As do most working mothers she struggles to balance work, home and childcare Fine I I really have to confess, although I like the series, this particular one was very off putting for me As much as I tried to ignore it and concentrate on the story itself, the author s choice of bias in some situations became glaringly obvious I don t want to scream liberal or feminist but it was there in big bold descriptions The main character, Lucy, is working full time at the local paper temporarily As do most working mothers she struggles to balance work, home and childcare Fine I don t mind the author outlining that part of Lucy s experience within the mystery But, she also deals with a husband who expects his dinner on the table immediately when he comes home, a clean house and quiet obedient children or he sulks Lucy bends over backwards to accommodate him Now the author can t have it both ways Is Lucy an independent woman feminist or is she a parody of a Donna Reed housewife The other thing that stuck out was when Lucy went to the Republican candidate s coffee making great pains to let us know she s a Democrat The author describes the women as Stepford type wives They wear pastel dresses Lucy had not seen so much pastel since her last roll of Necco wafers and sit up straighter, acting excited when the MEN come in Throughout the book the words Christian values seem to be an anathema which also irritated me Yes, the character of the preacher wasn t the best but not all Christians are like that and not all Christian preachers are insincere or hypocritical But, apparently, the oh so accommodating Congregational Church, which Lucy only attends infrequently, is so much better Bah I won t even begin to tackle the diatribe the author includes from the mouth of the elementary school principle that makes it seem as if questioning the competence of teachers or curricula by parents is a worse sin than murder No, it is a wholly unappealing list of opinions I abhor wrapped in a lukewarm mystery
