I've never read a Nancy Drew mystery, but I imagine this must be pretty similar. Something written by someone who doesn't write particularly well, and for people who read even worse.

The author attempts to serve up a Murder She Wrote type of mystery, but the book lacks anything of interest to make us care about it. The characters have no more depth than the ink on the page, and there is no requisite charm that is the hallmark of the better examples of this genre.

The lead character is a plucky mi...more
This was my first time reading any of Meier's books. I'm so glad I did. I hesitated before reading this book because I always try to read a series in order. After reading other posts about this series, I decided I'd just jump in and try it. Well worth it!

Meier has a fluid writing skill that makes the reader forget they are reading. The story itself was just what I was ready to read this weekend. So appropriate......for Father's Day weekend. My husband said, "Thanks a lot!". The story was captiv...more

Lucy Stone gets an opportunity to attend a newspaper conference in Boston. She is a little concerned about leaving the family, but her husband encourages her to go saying they can manage a week without her. She leaves, but is worried about the preparations for Father's Day that are now in her children's hands. Father's Day is a big celebration at their house and it must be done right.
Once at the conference, she finds that being alone isn't all it's cracked up to be. But, she meets many people an...more
Sometimes, judging a book by how good it is depends on the relief you feel after finishing the book… If it’s a relief that all the hero/heroine’s struggles ended… It’s good because you did care for the character. If you don’t feel relief at all, then it’s good and the story haunts you. If you wish it didn’t end and it still have a sequel, then that was a really nice book. But if you’re so relieved because you finished it, damn. That was a waste of time…
I’m so sorry, Ms. Meier… But I’m not really...more
Isn't it curious how there always seems to be a murder to solve? This time, it didn't happen in Tinker's Cove, but in Boston during a newspaper conference, where Lucy Stone received a reward for investigative reporting. I was able to figure out whodunit before she did. It really wasn't that hard. Even so, I can't help but like her, glad she made it home in time for Father's Day.

As the book declares, the setting for the story made for a reflection on the seamy side of people. I can't believe I'm writing it, but this book just...just might, be better than Birthday Party Murder. It's as if the former was written pertinently for me. Each passage lasted exactly the required length, and the setting changed accordingly, coincidentally when my mind would start to tap its foot impatiently. There was not one single wasted word. The setting for this book was very different from...more

This is the best one so far in the series. Lucy was not constantly complaining about her kids or husband. Yes she did show concern since she was away but not overboard like in the other books. She did not do a lot of investigating but I am beginning to think that is not necessary to enjoy the books. I cannot give it a 5star rating because the books are not polished as they seem slapped together & eventually the murderer gets caught, however they are easily read and fun.
I noticed while reading this book many edits that were missed. The one that stays with me is that "The antique shore door was propped open." I guess her editor is getting tired of her liberal views coming through her writing.
I've tried reading this book before and have always found it boring, but since I'm trying to read the whole series, I thought I'd give it another try. It was still boring. But short. Definitely not her best.

Lucy Stone wins a prize and gets to go to a newspaper conference in Boston. Oh, and she stumbles upon and sort of solves a murder. It is nice to see how this series and the Stone family has matured.
The sleuth is a working mom who goes to a newspaper conference in Boston. Liked the character but not the other characters other than her family members who sounded like normal, troublesome kids..
Lucy Stone attends a conference in Boston. She has won an award for her writng. She gets involved in an investigation when the honoree is murdered.
One of the better stories in this series. I liked how Lucy was able to incorporate her job as an investigative reporter into solving a murder.
Glad to see Lucy was able to get away from home for a while. Enjoy this on alot. I thought the writing in this was really good.
This one was really boring, and it was SO obvious who the killer was as soon as the character was introduced.

I enjoy this series. This one centers arounds fathers day but lucy is not in tinkers cove this time. Fun and nice read.
Again, another great Meier murder mystery. I love her characters and watching them grow up through the series.
Another fun rrad As I read each book by this author, I find each plot fressh, even with the same characters.
Another great Lucy Stone mystery! I liked this one because it took place at a newspaper convention.
Another good Lucy Stone mystery. I enjoy these books and they are quick reads.
i liked it but it did seem to drag compared to the rest of her books.
