I've only read the Stevi Mittman story 'who needs june in december, anyway?' which is the 3rd (think it's the 3rd!) story in the life in long island can be murder series. it's a short story in the 'next' line from harlequin and honestly I don't think it'd make much sense unless you sorta know the background from the first book or 2 but that's just my opinion. June is Teddy's mother who's sorta nuts and drives everyone else nuts...in this story her mother disappears and they find a kidnapping note then go on a hunt trying to find her. Teddy's brother who's been living in the Bahamas since graduation 20 yrs or so earlier is supposed to come in for Christmas but isn't wanting to and the family wonders if June didn't do this 'kidnapping' herself but can't figure it out for sure.

THis book has three wonderful stories about three women and how they deal with there family and friends around the holidays. The second story really made me laugh the most. It was worth reading this book just for that story alone.
