Lucy Stone, the Tinker's Cove, Maine newspaper reporter has a whole subdivision of peculiar neighbors around her once peaceful farmhouse, and anonymous letters are arriving at her office. The unknown penman alleges that the new football coach, Buck Burkhart, is condoning unsavory behavior by the high school's senior football players toward the junior players and the cheerleaders, one of whom is Lucy's daughter, Sara. But no one is talking or listening, as the coach launches his lackluster team into a victorious season.

There is a new development of sorts right near Lucy Stone's home. Five modular homes have been built and problems played right from the outset. Whether it was a new teen and his ultra-large motorcycle, or the teen's mom Mimi Stanton's chronic complaining, well, either situation is certain to drive Lucy crazy.

But, she has bigger fish to fry at the moment. School will be starting soon, and Lucy and her friends decide to set up a bake sale for The Hat and Mitten Fund. The proceeds will go towards purchasing complete school supplies for the town's young students. As a mother of four, Lucy knows that sometimes the long list of supplies can be overwhelming, so she is glad to spearhead the bake sale.

Right in the midst of this newfound chaos, shockingly Mimi, the complaining neighbor, is found dead, with a knife sticking out of her back, Quite naturally, the police are on task in trying to discover who the murderer is. Meanwhile, Lucy adept in her job as a reporter, starts coverage in her paper, the Pennysaver. More than that, Lucy cannot help but to follow leads of her own. As an amateur detective, Lucy does what she does best. She snoops, asks questions, and gets herself into some pretty sticky predicaments.

Bake Sale Murder is the thirteenth book in the Lucy Stone series and it is a quick, delightful read. Whether read in or out of order, or as a standalone, each book has its own story. As usual, there is always a surprise as to who the killer is, especially when there is one murder.

I look forward to the next entry in this series,St. Patrick's Day Murder, as each month I am striving to read at least one book in this ongoing series by Leslie Meier. ( )

not a bad book--too much in-fighting amongst the women neighbors though. ( )

Although I'm rating this book 2/5, I can't understand the low ratings, even if I'm contributing to its low average. I'm used to my harsh rating system, which is ironic, as I'm easily pleased during the actual act of reading a book. It's just that books need to achieve something to earn 4 or 5 stars. As for this book, the story was running along familiar lines, which is unavoidable in a series of 20 books.

The clearly wrong arrest of a murder suspect, the paucity of progress in Lucy Stone's investigation. The murderer revealing herself due to rising panic, acquired from watching Lucy ask about. The case was neatly tied up by showing the article of the Pennysaver, but a couple of things went unsolved, or at least unmentioned. It looks like my rating does not tally with my reading experience, but it all boils down to how the writer fills in the bits of the book that are meant to be filler.

I didn't get a sense of familial dynamics that were the hallmark of earlier books in the series. The thing with this book is that, for me, both good and bad aspects are present in few times. The book being short is not a problem. I always take it as a sign of dishonesty when a writer who churns out 250 paged books suddenly spikes her output with 400 plus paged ones. Here I know what I'm getting into. So this one is good but not good enough. ( )

Lucy Stone has some new neighbors now that a new subdivision has gone in across from her home. As Lucy and some of her friends are trying to organize a bake sale to assist underprivileged children with school supplies, they realize the need to get younger people involved. They invite some of Lucy's new neighbors who radically change the way the bake sale is run. On the day of the event, one of the women fails to show up to cover her shift. When Lucy goes to check on her, she finds her body instead. A homeless man who has been hanging around shows up at the funeral. Is there a connection between them? Before Lucy can fully investigate, he disappears. Did I mention that Tinker's Cove has a new football coach? and that they are actually winning football games? Oh, but, there are also rumors of hazing. It's a fun, quick read that probably shows why amateurs should leave sleuthing to official investigators, but then we wouldn't have the thrill of seeing all the situations into which Lucy gets herself.
