It’s another hectic holiday season in Tinker’s Cove, Maine. But Lucy Stone, a reporter for the town’s weekly paper, The Pennysaver, has more on her mind than Christmas presents and holiday cheer. This year, she’s in charge of the annual Christmas cookie exchange, which turns into more of a catfight than a fun holiday tradition when bitterness and jealously put a damper on the Christmas spirit.

The next morning, Tucker Whitney, one of the women from the cookie exchange, is found strangled in her home, and suddenly people are afraid to walk the streets alone. And to make matters worse, there’s an ever-increasing drug problem in their sleepy little oceanfront lobster town, and it’s directly affecting two of Lucy’s kids.

While the police search for Tucker’s killer, Lucy decides to do a little informal investigating of her own and uncovers a few of the town’s dangerous little secrets.

Christmas Cookie Murder mixes serious mystery and suspense with a little bit of light holiday cheer. Ms. Meier weaves several plot lines together to create a solid story that, for the most part, all fits together in the end. The mystery may not be all that hard to solve—and it may be a bit over-the-top at times (with all the drugs and murder and fire and theft, Tinker’s Cove sometimes sounds more like then inner-city than a small town in Maine)—but it’s also a good way to wind down after a long day of Christmas shopping.
