Fiction. Literature. Mystery. HTML:With Halloween around the corner, and a mysterious murder close to home, Lucy's Stone's fall is off to a sinister start . . .

When the bewitching Diana Ravenscroft comes to quiet Tinker's Cove and opens Solstice, a quaint little shop offering everything from jewelry to psychic readings, Lucy Stone writes her off as eccentric but harmless. Even after Diana gives her a disturbingly accurate reading, Lucy can't help but befriend the newcomer. But not everyone in town is so enchanted. And when Lucy stumbles upon a dead body near her home, she can't shake the feeling that something ominous is lurking in the crisp October air . . .

Convinced Diana is an evil witch, prominent businessman Ike Stoughton blames her for a series of recent misfortunes, including Lucy's gruesome discovery and his own wife's death, and rallies the townsfolk against her. But after Lucy learns the murder victim was a magician and close friend of Diana's, she starts to wonder who's really stirring up a cauldron of trouble. By Halloween, her suspicions lead her to a deadly web of secretsand a spine-chilling brush with the things that go bump in the night . . .

"The warm, small-town ambiance and the persevering Lucy Stone make this a winner for cozy fans."

Mystery
  BooksInMirror | Feb 19, 2024 |
This Lucy Stone mystery takes on a darker tone than the other novels in the series. It is a Hallowe’en story, and the author uses witches of the Wicca persuasion to form the basis of the story. She also leaves it open to readers’ interpretation as to whether or not the spells cast in the story actually worked. I really didn’t care for the coercion of upstanding Lucy Stone being induced into the dark side. It’s still an interesting tale, just not my cup of tea. (Yes, the tea in the story should NOT be drunk!) ( )

Lucy Stone doesn’t believe in witches or creepy predictions… or does she? Never take a dog walking; you always find dead bodies! Interesting advice, but it seems in cozy mysteries this is always true! A trip to the fortuneteller. A prediction of death and fire. Witches, witches, and witches galore. But who is really a witch, who is just pretending, and who is responsible for the fire that killed someone in Tinker’s Cove? This one had some interesting characters, lots of small-town Maine scenes, terrible rainstorms that seem to go on forever, galoshes, wonderful gardens filled with giant pumpkins, owls, and casting circles. And cats! Oh, the cats! I am easily hooked by adorable pets in a good cozy. And as always, an intriguing mystery for Lucy to work out.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

What a cute book with a wholesome character. I think I will have to read more Lucy Stone Mysteries. ( )

Hodgepodge of a story that went off the rails when it came time to discover the murderer. Works better as a novel of the doings of a small-town as seen by a local reporter. ( )
