I just finished this one - the first of a new series for me. It was a little predictable and mild, but I enjoyed it just the same. I love mysteries with fun, real to life characters and Lucy Stone fits the bill. I liked it enought that I have already ordered the sequels!
I knew I would enjoy this when I saw the setting (a small Maine town) and the heroine's job (telephone customer service), but I didn't realize how fun it would really be. I was totally clueless as to the guilty party until the very end and quick reads like this are a great break from daily chores. The book was long enough to be fully developed and short enough to read in a day--pure pleasure on paper!
I'll be returning to Tinker's Cove--the main characters are quirky and the small-town atmosphere comes alive. Since this was the first in a series, I hope to see the return of many of the "minor" characters. I am probably going to try to read the books in order; although they don't meet my "keeper" requirements at this time, Tinker's Cove will become a new, regularly-visited "vacation spot on paper".
This was a cute wonderful story. Well ...Other then the murder of course. LOL Lucy Stone is such a likeable person. She is a great main character. Her little home town in Maine sounds so charming. I can't wait to read more about it.
Enjoyed this new series very much. Hope the characters continue to develop and it gets better and better. Fun read.
First book in Lucy Stone mystery.
