This is a combination of two books…New Year’s Eve Murder and Christmas Carol Murder.
New Year’s Eve Murder
This book in the Lucy Stone series was a little different than the others because it takes place outside of Tinker’s Cove. This time, Lucy gets involved in her typical sleuthing in New York. I always enjoy the books in this series and though different than usual, still very entertaining. There are lots of characters to keep track of, but it keeps your interest. So a fun cozy mystery that fits when you want to curl up in your recliner with a cup of cocoa, a fuzzy blanket, and a good book.
Christmas Carol Murder
One more sleuthing adventure with Lucy Stone has arrived. I enjoy the books in this series and how the family members age at an appropriate rate. While Lucy loves her family, it is interesting to see how the different personalities react with other family members as well as teenage angst and maturing into young adults affects the family dynamics.
This is a book that could touch your heart if you’ve had to personally deal with the financial and/or health problems with which many of the characters have to face. While moments of emotional upheaval and fear arise, you still experience hope, love, forgiveness, and holiday generosity by the time the adventure ends.
Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
