More About the Author

I started writing in the late '80s when I was attending graduate classes at Bridgewater State College. I wanted to become certified to teach high school English and one of the required courses was Writing and the Teaching of Writing. My professor suggested that one of the papers I wrote for that course was good enough to be published and I sent it off to Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine's Department of First Stories. I got $100 for the story and I've been writing ever since. The teaching, however, didn't work out.

My books draw heavily on my experience as a mother of three and my work as a reporter for various weekly newspspers on Cape Cod. My heroine, Lucy Stone, is a reporter in the fictional town of Tinker's Cove, Maine, where she lives in an old farmhouse (quite similar to mine on Cape Cod!) with her restoration carpenter husband Bill and four children. As the series has progressed the kids have grown older, roughly paralleling my own family. We seem to have reached a point beyond which Lucy cannot age -- my editor seems to want her to remain forty-something forever -- though I have to admit I am dying to write "Menopause is Murder"!

I usually write one Lucy Stone mystery every year and as you can see, my editor likes me to feature the holidays in my books.Of course Christmas is one of my favorite times of year and my newest mystery{released September 2013} is called "Christmas Carol Murder.".I have always loved the Alistair Sims movie version of Charles Dicken's ,"The Christmas Carol",so I was excited to be able to have Lucy encounter some modern day versions of Dicken's classic characters.
In addition to the recent holiday mysteries I have written such as "Chocolate Covered Murder"{Valentine's Day}and "Easter Bunny Murder",I have written one travel mystery in which Lucy and her friends ,travel to London,"English Tea Murder".Since I love to travel I can only hope that Lucy will be able to solve some mysteries in some other cities and countries also.My husband and I did stay in an apartment in Paris this past year {big hint!}
My books are classified as cozies but a good friend insists they are really "comedies of manners" and I do enjoy expressing my view of contemporary American life.

Now that the kids are grown -- I now have four grandchildren -- my husband and I are enjoying our empty nest on Cape Cod which we share with our new very frisky kitty ,Sylvester.I am busy writing the next Lucy Stone Mystery which is due out this Spring.I do hope you will enjoy it!

Customer Reviews

They are well written and the story lines are always great.
norma j fox
For me, this installment fell short mainly in its plot resolution: the ending felt rushed, and there were too many unexplained loose ends.
Violetta
I have read all of Leslie Meier's book and I recommend them to anyone who like a good non bloody mystery.

I thought this was one of Leslie Meier's best mysteries! It's dishy and gossipy, about a rich family that's mistreating its matriarch. Meier brings some new blood into Tinkers Cove with a New York private investigator. But of course, Lucy solves the mystery. Great fun!

This is my first time reading a Lucy Hale book and it won't be my last. Leslie Meier writes a family oriented small town mystery that is centered in the cozy town of Tinker's Cove and their annual Easter egg hunt. The mystery starts when Lucy takes her grandson to the annual Easter egg hunt held at Pine Point Estate and they see the Easter Bunny come out of the mansion...and drops dead!

There was this very memorial chapter when Lucy sneaks upstairs and finds VV, a woman she remembers as always being well dressed and kept, wearing jewelry with her hair coiffed, having been reduced to a trembling shell of herself. It was very shocking to read what some people are capable of.

Overall the storyline was entertaining and fast paced, perfect for a cozy weekend read!

There is no greater joy, pleasure, and comfort than being in the middle of a Lucy Stone book. I've read every book, and I look forward to each new book. I take great pleasure in these books, as the comfort level is so deep and warm for me. I absolutely love these books. They are so comfortable and cozy to me.

I enjoyed this book so much. It was comfortable and interesting. I loved both the comfort level and the plot.

This series is good and right for me, but, like anything else, it is not necessarily good and right for everybody. I think it would appeal to anyone who loves the really cozy mysteries, and those who take pride and joy in motherhood (or who look forward to it). I love being a mother, and before I was a mother, I looked forward to it. I enjoyed all those mother years. Now my kids are about all grown. I'll never stop being a good mother and grandmother. As long as there is a breath in me, I will be the best ever mother and grandmother that I can be. A tired mother/grandmother, yes, but a good mother nontheless. (I work 40 hours and have 4 kids and 1 grandchild I worry about.)

In this book, I noticed that the author uses a lot of similes.

I only have one complaint about this series: Elizabeth. One bad apple has to ruin the whole crop. Elizabeth, unfortunately, was in this book, but not a whole lot. If I had of done what Elizabeth has done, I would have been disowned by my parents, but Lucy adores and respects her. I don't know how Elizabeth could have anybody's respect or adoration. I really wish Lucy only had of had 3 kids: Toby, Sara, and Zoe. Elizabeth didn't need to be there.

A few books ago, in this long running series, I got to thinking that maybe the series had run its course. Happily, the author seems to have gotten her second wind.

In this latest installment, number 20 in the series, I think, I thought there'd be an Easter theme but, in fact, there wasn't much in it relating to Easter.

Still, I enjoyed it. It's a somewhat interesting mystery, though the mystery is secondary to the look at the care and abuse of the elderly.

If you like cozies, I'd highly recommend it to you. These Lucy Stone books are very enjoyable for the cozy lover.

This was a great addition to the series. Lucy Stone takes her Grandson to the annual Easter egg hunt in Tinker's Cove, Maine. Every year, one of the country's richest women holds an Easter egg hunt on the grounds of her beautiful mansion. For some reason when Lucy, her daughter in law, and grandson arrive at the event the gate is closed and when the Easter Bunny does come out of the mansion, he drops dead! Lucy uses her investigative skills to make many surprising finds. Just when you think you know what happened, you find out you were wrong. You will enjoy this latest addition to the series.

So, I am going to have to detract a little from all the glowing reviews. I've read all the Lucy Stone mysteries, as well as most of the short stories included in compilations. I have read them all in the last two years (I ripped through the series in a few months, and have kept up since then), so the overall feel of the series is fairly fresh in my mind. I'd agree with another reviewer that this book is definitely not for a newcomer to the series, but I'd say that in general about any long-running series, though perhaps this a little more than most as Lucy's family did not play as big a role as they often do. I was a little disappointed with this latest installment... I can't quite put my finger on it, but something felt off. Maybe it was that Lucy's family was put on the back-burner. I don't know. The mystery itself was good. It was not complex, but it had several twists. I'd recommend this book to fans of the series, but in all honesty, I did not enjoy this latest foray into Lucy Stone's world as much as I had hoped.

Not my favorite of the Meier mysteries. Too many twists in the story. But I always love Lucy. She comes across as a real housewife,mother and unofficial snoop who always catches the murderer.
