Each of the books in Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone Mystery series are as just as good as the last. I just finished reading Back to School Murder, which is quite appropriate for this time of year. On the 1st day of school a bomb is found inside the building and all the students are evacuated. While everyone is standing outside waiting to see what will happen next someone realizes a student is missing. The new assistant principal rushes back in and rescues a boy who with special needs who was left behind. How could a child be left behind and who planted the bomb are only a couple of the questions and problems facing the school and the community.
What I really like about these cozy mysteries is that each book is just as good as the last. The characters are so real and easy to identify with.
