“I like Lucy Stone a lot and so will readers.”

–Carolyn Hart


“A charming setting and likable cast…enjoyable reading.”

Publishers Weekly

Haunted-house parties and ghostly galas…grinning pumpkins, mayhem and murder. It’s going to be one heck of a Halloween for Lucy Stone and Tinker’s Cove…

It’s October in Maine, and everyone in Tinker’s Cove is preparing for the annual Halloween festival. While Lucy Stone is whipping up orange-frosted cupcakes, recycling tutus for her daughters’ Halloween costumes, helping her son with his pre-teen rebellion, and breast-feeding her brand-new bay, an arsonist is loose in Tinker’s Cove. When the latest fire claims the life of the owner of the town’s oldest house, arson turns into murder…

While the townsfolk work to transform a dilapidated mansion into a haunted house for the All-Ghouls festival, the hunt for the culprit heats up. Trick-or-treat turns deadly as a little digging in all the wrong places puts Lucy too close to a shocking discovery that could send all her best-laid plans up in smoke…

“Lucy Stone is an endearing sleuth.”

–Dorothy Cannell

    One of the best books I have ever read. Could not put it down. Was really surprise who the killer was. I loved the character of Miss Tilley she was a hoot.

    Just reading the Trick or Treat Murder and read the reference to the song “Where ya goin”…?” and I wondered how you knew about that song. I then saw that you, too, live on the Cape.

    In the paper this week, it was announced that a restaurant in Eastham, near my house, has gotten permission to use the song since the previous restaurant closed. We will all soon be humming along again!

    Just started reading the Lucy Stone stories and really enjoying them. Curious about editing. On Pg 166 (Kensington paperback)Lucy goes into Miss Tilley’s house (after car accident with Jennifer). Lucy fixes lunch, adding MILK to the mushroom soup. But in the paragraph above there is NO milk in the refrigerator; just butter, ointment, lemon juice and batteries. Where did she get the milk?
