Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

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.
