Wedding Day Murder
, Leslie Meier has done just that – mixed them, I mean.
ucy is supportive of her friend Sue's daughter's marriage to big bucks until the owner of those big bucks arrives in town and starts throwing his not inconsiderable weight around. So it's not a surprise when he is found floating, face down, in the harbor next to his rented but gigantic yacht. The number of suspects keeps growing as the people whom he offended are questioned. Lucy, told to keep her nose out of this murder, does her own investigating.
ucy Stone is an engaging protagonist – wife, mother, full-time working reporter, good friend, and amateur detective. What more can a book want? The plot is straighforward and written in Meier's delightful style. Her series of
