    Here to nitpick again.
    Haunted House Murder is correctly listed in anthologies with a publication date of 2019.

    It is incorrectly listed in “Lucy Stone Books” with a publication date of 2022.

      Hi John – as it is both an anthology, and a book that features Lucy Stone, we are listing it in both spots.

    Eggnog Murder is part of a book that also contains stories by Lee Hollis “Death by Eggnog” and Barbara Ross “Nogged Off.”

    Just discovered Leslie Meier books! I have read four in 2 wks. Thankyou, they are wonderful. I love these cozy mysteries, especially from Cape Cod. I spent my last vacation with my Mom there for 3 wks. The best time of my life. I’m a big Lucy fan.
