Description from the publisher:
Lucy Stone, the delightful heroine of Leslie Meier's mystery series set in rural Tinker's Cove, Maine, makes her crime-solving debut in "Mistletoe Murder".

As if baking holiday cookies, knitting a sweater for her husband's gift, and making her daughter's angel costume for the church pageant weren't enough, Lucy is also working nights at the famous mail-order company Country Cousins. But when she discovers Sam Miller, its very wealthy founder, dead in his car from an apparent suicide, the sleuth in her knows something just doesn't smell right.

Taking time out from her hectic holiday life to find out what really happened, her investigation leads to a backlog of secrets as long as Santa's Christmas Eve route. Lucy is convinced that someone murdered Sam Miller. But who and why? With each harrowing twist she uncovers in this bizarre case, another shocking revelation is exposed. Now, as Christmas draws near and Lucy gets dangerously closer to the truth, she's about to receive a present from Santa she didn't ask for.

My Comments:
This book was So much fun!! I loved the way it made you feel like you really knew Lucy Stone and could be a part of her family. And the mystery was very well written.
