Lucy Stone is the heroine of a series of cozy mystery novels by American novelist Leslie Meier. Lucy Stone is a newspaper reporter in Tinker’s Cove, Maine (a fictional town – don’t try to Google it). She lives in an old farmhouse with her husband Bill and their four children. Interestingly, although her children have aged, Lucy’s aging appears to have stopped at 40.

The Lucy Stone character made her debut in the 1991 novel Mistletoe Murder (which was originally published as Mail Order Murder). The series is currently ongoing. Below is a list of Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone mystery novels in order of when they were first published (which is also their chronological order):
