for me Some of her books are absolutely delightful, but the next book will be terrible I am extremely happy to say that Wedding Day Murder was one of the delightful books.I love Lucy and the great cast of characters surrounding her From her kids, to their friends, to Lucy s coworkers, to Sue, all are delightful All except one, that is The one character who I can not bear is Bill Bill is most certainly one of the worst individuals I ve ever read about He constantly demeans Lucy and her thoughts, and constantly guilt trips her I know Ms Meier is probably trying to present a realistic marriage, and I do think too many books portray unrealistic marriages, however, Bill is so unlikable I wish he d get a job away so Lucy could live her life without his comments.Besides Bill the mystery was wonderful The plot wrapped up nicely, the setting was idealistic, and we met new characters that I hope appear in the next book Leslie Meier has a talent for writing a mystery that you can t put down This is book 8 in the series I like that the characters are not so perfect but Lucy s husband Bill really shows what a jerk he can be in this one The author either needs to bring him back around or kill him off in the next one He s had semi asshole issues all along but he s overall been a nice guy until this book Actually, just about everyone in Lucy s life is an ass in this one and she basically just lets them get away with it which makes her less likable There are 26 in this series so I This is book 8 in the series I like that the characters are not so perfect but Lucy s

ruffled as the groom s mother commandeers the wedding plans When the groom s found floating in the harbor during Sidra s shower, guests and townsfolk become suspects.This eighth Lucy Stone mystery was a first for me and somewhat disappointing Details about Lucy s busy domestic life are so drawn out that the murder doesn t take place until midway through the book on p 125 Since Lucy isn t in law enforcement, I wouldn t expect her to be investigating Still, the crime felt farlike a subplot in the novel There are only two serious suspects, and three or four others pretty much mentioned in passing The groom and his mother aren t particularly likeable, and the mother comes off as a caricature rather than a fully developed character.Character development is a major problem in this book The daughter s inexplicable decision to give up a nice guy to marry the groom in the first place isn t delved into Her sudden reversal of attitude and heart s desire after his death is baffling It s as if a light bulb went off in her head and she suddenly saw where she went wrong Other characters also fell flat On the upside, Lucy and her four kids and husband arerealistically drawn, as is her boss and coworker If you want a quick afternoon s read and enjoy cozies that are heavy on the cozy and light on crime solving, then go for it Wedding Day Murder by Leslie Meier is a fun, cozy mystery

sneaking my way into this story and not having any idea of what the rest of the books presented I do wish I would have, mostly out of pure curiousity s sake, but I didn t need to If you re planning to pick up one of these books, just do it There s no need for a chronological order if you don t care about that sort of thing This book also finishes itself up and doesn t leave cliffhangers, so it could easily be a standalone if you decide to not continue on with this series I ll be huntingbooks of this series down for a rainy day, that s for sure There s not many twists and turns in this book I found it to be super straight forward It s quite literally a curl up with a blanket and cup of tea during a thunderstorm kind of read at least for me I can say, without ruining the entire book, I found the ending quite sweet That s the only part of this book that had me wondering about the rest of this series Would I have feltfor the ending if I read the previous 7 books It doesn t make a difference though, because it was lovely.Overall, this book was sweet, simple and cute I had been craving something I could just binge easily and not overwhelm my brain with and this was it Three out

Fun and a quick read. Summer is settling into Tinker s Cove, but that doesn t mean that Lucy Stone is going to get much in the area of down time to relax Besides working full time at the local newspaper as a reporter, she is overseeing a house with all four of her children home and enjoying the break from school, both high school and middle school To make things eveninteresting, the daughter of her friend Sue Finch is coming home to get married Sue has asked Lucy to help with planning the simple wedding, but Summer is settling into Tinker s Cove, but that doesn t mean that Lucy Stone is going to get much in the area of down time to relax Besides working full time at the local newspaper as a reporter, she is overseeing a house with all four of her children home and enjoying the break from school, both high school and middle school To make things eveninteresting, the daughter of her friend Sue Finch is coming home to get married Sue has asked Lucy to help with planning the simple wedding, but it turns out that it is not going to be simple at all.Things start going awry when Sue s duaghter Sidra arrives with her fiance Ron Davitz and his mother Thelma He is the founder of a major dot.com company and the simple wedding that was originally going to take place in the gazebo in the Stone s backyard quickly starts to balloon out of control as Thelma getsinvolved in the planning If that wasn t enough, Ron s body turns up floating next to his yaght, and it doesn t seem to be an accident.Lucy finds herself once again on the trail of a killer as she tries to balance the busy lifestyle that surrounds her with working kids, kids at day camp, and playing chauffeur to all of them Can she figure out who killed Ron before she becomes a target, particularly as she digs into a dispute with the local harbormaster and the area s lobstermen This is a pretty quick and fun read I always enjoy Meier s mysteries, though I do find that most of the men in her books come across mean and cruel this includes Lucy s husband With that said, I am looking forward to her next adventure I m finding it difficult to pinpoint what made this book great I guess it was nice to see progress in the timeline of the Stone family There s something ethereal and fairy like about the story The mystery itself took a backseat to the social and familial events and dang, I m at a loss again I do know that the presence of classic villains helped The lack of annoying persons here made it easy to love this book This series will be almost a daily ritual for me until the very end of the former I m finding it difficult to pinpoint what made this book great I guess it was nice to see progress in the timeline of the Stone family There s something ethereal and fairy like about the story The mystery itself took a backseat to the social and familial events and dang, I m at a loss again I do know that the presence of classic villains helped The lack of annoying persons here made it easy to love this book This series will be almost a daily ritual for me until the very end of the former Cheers, Leslie Meier This is the only book in the series that is decent and I have read about six of them Lucy did not do any investigating at all just like the other books but this at least had a decent story She still complained about her marriage issues and her horrible husband I do not get that at all What is the Lucy Stone series about because she does not investigate ever and her only contribution is complaining I got the books cheap and I want to give it every chance but
