Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction. On the other hand, I couldn't figure out who the victim was going to be, and I was completely surprised b

Book Review: Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier

book review turkey day murder a lucy stone mystery 7 leslie meier

The small town of Tinker's Cove has a plethora of holiday traditions during the Thanksgiving holiday, including visits to the Brown Farm to see Tom Tom the turkey, attending the annual parade, and watching the annual high school football game. However, the celebrations go awry when Curt Nolan, a Native American activist, is found murdered in Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed this edition in the Lucy Stone book series by Leslie Meier. Although I read this particular book in February, it's the perfect book to read in November to get into the holiday spirit. I'm not sure if there really is a Metinnicut Tribe or not, but it definitely makes me want to learn more about the Native American history in the United States because most of what I learned about this was during elementary school.

I found that many of the situations were very believable, including how late Toby and his friends arrived and didn't bother calling to let his parents know when he would arrive. He didn't consider that his mom might be worried . . . typical teenage behavior! The fact that his friends were surprised at how little there was to do in a small town like Tinker's Cove was very convincing too. The protest scene was credible as well, especially seeing all the ones on the news over the last few years.

There wasn't too much I could complain about in Turkey Day Murder. One thing is that Lucy's husband Bill was a bit of a jerk . . . again. I dislike that he's so old fashioned and wouldn't even listen to his wife, but I guess there are men out there that act like him. The other thing I didn't particularly care for, or understand, was that so many people were against the building of the casino.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier. If you enjoyed this book, you might enjoy Look Alive Twenty-Five (Stephanie Plum, #25) by Janet Evanovich.
