Small town traditions are celebrated throughout Maine during the holiday season. But when it comes to Halloween, some people are more than willing to reap a harvest of murder …
Sounds like fun. In this one we get not one, but three short stories in one book. The first one is Halloween Party Murder by Leslie Meier.
Back in Tinker’s Cove, journalist Lucy is suspicious of the newest residents. Ty and Heather Moon bought the Victorian and are planning to bring it back to life. But first, wouldn’t it be great for a haunted house for Halloween? When Heather dies of a drug overdose, Ty becomes a suspect. While Lucy is digging for information about the couple she finds disturbing secrets that may affect the town.
But just when you think you know, you do not. Always a pleasure to read Ms. Meier.
DEATH OF A HALLOWEEN PARTY MONSTER by LEE HOLLIS
Hayley’s Halloween party is in full swing. With everyone wearing their favorite movie monster. What better place than at a costume party to commit murder?
When Boris Candy is found dead, Hayley is going to find out who did this dastardly deed and why.
I do indeed love a costume themed party and throw in a murder and everyone is looking sketchy. Hayley is such a fun character and I loved catching up with her.
