Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery #3) - Leslie Meier

Trick or Treat Murder by Leslie Meier
Have read some of the author's other works so I'm familiar with the town and it's cast of characters.
This one starts out with Lucy and her friend Sue are going to have a Halloween party in the empty mansion for the kids.
There's been fires in the town that is starting to cause some to question what's going on...
Story also follows the fire investigation and the newspaper reporter who writes about it.
Also a wife who found her husband in bed with her yoga teacher!
Lucy's kids are also into activities and she has a lot on her plate to deal with, Hubby Bill is on the historic committee and it could be the calls they get at night about her snooping too much into the fire investigation or his dealings with the committee.
She's fearful their old house will be next to be set on fire.
Good story and there's so much to it. not predictable til the end.
Excerpt from one other book is included at the end.

Flavia Rises
I Am Half-Sick of Shadows - Alan Bradley

Enjoyable, but not so much as the previous ones in the series.

The Shape of Water
The Shape of Water - Andrea Camilleri,Daniel Philpott

Love the fact that this has not only an author's note, but also some notes from the translator at the end explaining some of the turns of phrase, hidden meanings, and all that stuff that you'd really only understand if you were a local. A nice change of pace from US/UK type mysteries.

The cover of the edition I'm listening to
The Shape of Water - Andrea Camilleri,Daniel Philpott

Not really keen on this pinkish cover, which seems to be the most recent edition of this audiobook. Pretty sure I wouldn't pick it off the library shelf. The terracotta one above appeals far more.

The Assassin's Prayer
The Assassin's Prayer - Ariana Franklin,... The Assassin's Prayer - Ariana Franklin, Diana Bishop

ARRGGH!!! Well, actually I had been warned that there's a bit of a cliffhanger end, and the author has passed on, with this the last completed book in the series, so ARRGGHH!!!

 

Meanwhile, interesting to see the start of Joanna's marriage, having seen the end of it in Lionheart back in January. Also interesting to see Richard through the eyes of a different author - an unsympathetic treatment here.
