The Lucy Stone Mysteries is a series that has been watched across countries with some of the book sections being aired on television. Leslie Meier is a strong woman and has played vital roles in her books. Some of the major book sections include the Mistletoe Murder, the Tippy Toe Murder and Trick or Treat murder. Those who are interested by the preposterous development of the plot shall enjoy the Lucy Stone Mysteries.

The series starts off with the Mistletoe Murder. This is the first of the Lucy Stone Mysteries. It is set in a fictional town of Tinker`s Cove, Maine that is on the seaside. The setting takes place during Christmas. Lucy is Bill`s wife, and has three children. Lucy serves as a telephone operator in the Country Cousins which is the biggest employer in the community. Lucy finds her employer, Sam Miller, dead in his car. One would have thought of it being a suicide, but it was murder. Though Lucy was preparing for Christmas, she takes time to do her personal investigation. Barney, a local police officer, perishes in a car accident. This rises suspicions that Barney knew something that could have been of help in Sam Miller`s death.

The case become sophisticated when an elderly woman (Caroline Hutton) disappears. She dedicated her time to teacher the students during dance lessons. It is now Lucy`s obligation to figure out the connection between his employer`s death and the woman`s disappearance. The events have been split perfectly and each character roles are well represented in each chapter. Lucy is not at work since she is pregnant and we can see the tiring life of already having a family. It is clear that Bill and Lucy really love each other. Despite the obstacles, they are able to make it through. Everything about Lucy`s father and what he did to her is illustrated

In the Trick or Treat Murder, Lucy becomes devastated after learning that the a good friend and a client`s body were discovered in the remains of the pet project house that belonged to her. Lucy is in love with her family including her newborn baby, but the news are astonishing to her. Miss Tilley, former librarian who had an iron control on the committee, asks Bill to join the control in order to bring it back to its feet. When they are asked about the renovation of a local gas station, things worsen and Lucy even receives threats.

The series undertakes a couple of unending events. There is a bomb at the school and an outstanding rescue operation by a newly hired Carol Crane after a missing child. Carol Crane is found dead and not too long after her death, people start discovering that she wasn’t the admirable hero everyone thought. Lucy is struggling to be a nice mother and trying to figure out what working during the day implies. Bill doesn`t like it. However, Lucy finally gets an excuse to go out and works smartly since she can investigate with the legitimate authority she has. During valentine`s day Bitsy Howell, a new librarian, was murdered by an outsider. Lucy had a hunch that Howell`s huge city ways rubbed several individuals in the city. She knew that the motives for Bitsy`s death ran a lot deeper.

The best thing for Lucy stone during Christmas was having the annual cookie exchange but due to the late events, but instead of counting the calories, she would spend the Christmas counting suspects. Tinkers Cove has a known culture of holding Thanksgiving festivities. The festivities range from activities like Lucy`s pumpkin pie and the football game by the high school kids. Unluckily, someone added murder to the menu of these festivities. Lucy is eager to investigate the killer. Nolan was disagreeing with almost everyone he met and so the suspect list was not a brief one.

Lucy`s life was not an ordinary life. She had a lot to tend to. Her husband, bill, was attention craving. She also had a rambunctious dog, some juggling four kids, and the tiring reporter job. Lucy is to attend a wedding after an invitation by Sue Finch and the groom`s body is discovered floating next to his yacht. Lucy has a hunch that this was not an accidental drowning. Lucy starts realizing that she could be in danger since the killer could hunt her. Reflecting on the previous deaths, Lucy can tell that the killer could do anything in order to hide his cover.

Lucy remembers Sherman Cobb`s death, an old attorney, and after going through Cobb`s papers, Lucy figures out that there is a tie between the attorney`s death. Meanwhile Miss Tilley`s past could affect Lucy a lot because of a nephew named snake, and a niece named Shirley. Therefore Lucy needs a solution before the killer draws conclusions.

Lucy Stone is jetting off to England and saying good bye to Tinker`s Cove. Lucy jumps for this girl’s gateway after being given the idea by her friend. Professor Temple is attacked by asthma and dies midflight. While in London, Lucy goes to see Professor Quentin Rea who used to flirt with her. She discovers a peculiar behavior by other members and discovers that they have all had a connection with Professor Temple. She therefore arrives top a conclusion that it was an act of revenge that caused Professor Temple`s death. The truth is elusive and this would mean that anyone could be a culprit. Now Lucy is in a position that could enable her to figure out the murderer or even make her the next victim.

Following the chocolate covered murder and Easter Bunny murder, the Christmas carol arrives. Luc loves having plans during holiday but this year, the town is in its hard times. Lucy has to work fast since the killer is on the loose. It becomes hard to figure out the case of Marlowe`s death since the suspects are more compared to the mourners. Luc is featured in the daytime TV. Where her and several other couples are awarded a vacation to France. The voyage is cancelled on the second day of class after Lucy discovers a chef in a pool of blood.
