I know it isn’t Halloween yet, but I just finished reading book #3 of Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone Mystery Series called Trick or Treat Murder. The small historic town in Maine in which Lucy lives has been having a number of unexplained fires, which are thought to be the result of an arsonist. A woman Lucy knew and liked died in one of those fires. Lucy wants to figure out who is responsible for starting these fires before someone else is found dead or injured.
Lucy is also involved in helping plan a Halloween party for all of the town’s children in an effort to keep them safe and still have a fun night. And, if that is not enough, Lucy finds herself feeling responsible for helping an old woman who was once the towns librarian deal with some of the pitfalls of aging.
I know you’ve heard it before, but I’ll say it again anyway. I like these “cozy mysteries” and can’t wait to read the next.
