Описание

Two of her four kids may be out of the nest, but Lucy Stone knows only too well that mothering is a lifetime commitment. At least that commitment means she gets to kick back and enjoy a fancy Mother's Day brunch-that is, before the festivities are interrupted by a nasty scene between two moms feuding over the popularity of their teenage daughters. Even after witnessing that scene though, Lucy never expected to see actual blood spilled. But when one of the moms is found dead at the tennis court, Lucy begins to unravel the mystery and comes face-to-face with a killer who has a thing or two to learn about motherly love.

  • (4/5)
    excellent book--a real page turner!
  • (5/5)
    You know, the Leslie Meier series never have drop dead gorgeous prose, but when the author is on song, she makes it up with freshness. The cozy mystery genre is a tired and cramped market. The writer here regains her lost zest, resulting in this sterling book. The latter turned out very well, and part of the reason is that a lot of events happen, none of which feels out of place. The Stones' family nest is diminished in this book. It was still a rambunctious affair. Leslie Meier used up a lot of ink on the kidnapping, which was unsolved for much of the book, but which played a sort of supporting role, a chorus to the main theme of offenders and safety. Lucy Stone's daily routine was not so boring as a real person's. She always has something to do. Her part time job, her weekly reunion with old girlfriends, her affection for her grizzled husband and for her children fit well into this book. Her youngest child, Zoe was adorable, and will keep being so until it will be her turn to be a freshman I suppose. The murder, funnily enough is the weak point. The murderer and motive are both outlandish. Lucy Stone's involvement in trying to solve the murder, for once, didn't harry the culprit in panicking and giving himself away. The guilty party was just caught red handed in a fairly humdrum way. But that, plus the odd phrase or two - curing cancer, really? - don't dampen the good work of early chapters. One of the strongest 5/5 books I've read. I wish nothing but good for the Stone family, as even when they're not trying to save the world, they still retain their charm and interest.

    Lucy is running in all directions, staying on top of her job, maintaining her household tasks, and keeping tabs on her family. And lately, her teenage daughter Sara is the one needing extra supervision. Playing fast and loose with the rules of the family, Sara finds herself in trouble and grounded, but she is also the victim of some bullying from her so-called friends. But murder trumps all other problems, and shows no respect for Mother’s Day. This well-written cozy is really a gritty account of a surprising murder. A great installment in the series, it departs from its cozy nature with the inclusion of some interesting but despicable characters. Well done.
