Leslie Meier is widely known for her Lucy Stone mystery series. The first installment in the Lucy Stone series is Mistletoe Murder, which also happens to be one of the best performing books in the series. This book has been set in the fictional town of Tinker’s Town, which is located in Maine, and it takes place during Christmas festivities. Lucy is a mother of three kids and wife to one Billy. She works as a telephone operator for the biggest company in her community, Country Cousins. Upon finding her employer dead in his car, Lucy suspects that his death was not due to natural causes. However, she still tries to understand why someone would try to kill her boss. Despite the fact that Lucy is exceedingly busy with her Christmas preparations, she still cannot resist the urge of doing a little bit of investigation on her own. When Barney, the friendly local policeman is unable to control his vehicle and eventually ends up in a comma, the risks rises.

Lucy is an exceedingly intelligent amateur sleuth. Readers are definitely going to relate well with her conundrums as she tries to find the perfect balance between work and life, and they are also going to enjoy snooping around with her to establish whodunit. After working on this book series for more than twenty years, Lucy is currently at book 18 in the series. The Bake Sale Murder is also another book that performed extremely well and is also a part of the Lucy Stone Mystery series. In this book, Lucy Stone is not happy at all. Instead of living next to an exceedingly quiet road that she has always been used to, a tiny subdivision has developed next to her. Part of this subdivision includes an obnoxious motorcycle riding teenager who loves to spend most of his time reving up and riding his machine.

Lucy together with her two friends, Pam, Rachael and Sue have started working on a new idea, the Hat and Mitten Fund. From the look of things, a bake sale seems like an excellent idea to raise up cash. When she starts asking for support from her friends, she realizes that she has not stayed in touch with them for an exceedingly long time. Thus, the three friends decide that it can be an extremely great idea to get to know the people residing in the new subdivision while getting some baked goods sold at the same time. What appeared to be the selling of a few baked goods eventually turns out to be an important Cashman takeover. Instead of producing a few cakes and brownies, they are going to have bottled beverages and low cab snacks.
