Item Details

Spring has sprung in Tinker's Cove, and Lucy Stone has a mile-long to-do list from painting eggs with her grandson, to preparing the perfect Easter feast, to reviving her garden after a long, cold winter, she hardly has time to search for a killer with a deadly case of spring fever. Lucy has always loved covering the annual Easter egg hunt for the Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at Pine Point, her luxurious oceanfront estate, it's a swanky event where the grown-ups sip cocktails while their children search for eggs that are as likely to contain savings bonds as they are jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives with her three-year-old grandson, VV's normally welcoming gates are locked, and a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges only to drop dead moments later. Lucy discovers that the victim is Van Vorst Duff, VV's grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point. As Lucy gathers a basketful of suspects, she's convinced that someone's been hunting for a lot more than eggs. And she'll have to chase the truth down a rabbit hole before the killer claims another victim.

Easter Bunny Murder by Leslie Meier was an OK mystery. I enjoyed it well enough. However, it's premise as set-up in the first chapter wasn't carried through. It would have been nice if the Easter theme could have been maintained. As it was, the story meandered its way to the heat of summer. As for the murder victim, that was introduced in the first chapter but the story digressed well away from the victim. It became more of a sub-plot. We, the reader, weren't even informed that the culprit existed as a person until the funeral of the victim. In a murder mystery I want my culprit to have a cameo appearance right near the beginning so that I know they exist in the story's universe. I want my murder mystery to focus on the solution to the murder. And I like a theme to be evident from beginning, to middle, to end. I wanted the Easter Bunny Murder to be consistent.
