Halloween is only a couple of weeks away, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and before you know it will be Christmas. I’ve been busy working on my Christmas gifts. I am so far behind. I just need more energy.
The library got a few more of the books I’d reserved in, so I’ve also been spending time reading. Books are so relaxing and enjoyable. I think I’d rather read than watch TV or see a movie. Anyway . . . back to my book review.
Turkey Day Murder by Leslie Meier is another cozy mystery that was a quick fun read. In number 7 of the Lucy Stone series, the town is divided over the building of a gambling casino on the property of a Metinnicut Indian activist who is found clubbed to death with an ancient war club.
Meanwhile, Lucy is busy preparing Thanksgiving dinner for a guest list that keeps growing. Her son comes home from college with some friends who in true teen spirit leave messes, stay up late, and sleep in late. Never a dull moment in Lucy’s life, her old friend asks her to look into the murder which her husband and the police make it known they want her to stay away from investigating and leave it up to the pros. Does she listen?
