Two of her four kids may be out of the nest, but Lucy Stone knows only too well that mothering is a lifetime commitment. At least she gets to kick back and enjoy a fancy Mother’s Day brunch with her brood—that is, before the festivities are interrupted by a nasty scene courtesy of Barbara Hume and Tina Nowak. Opposites in every way, the only thing these mean moms have in common is the need to best each other at every turn, using their teenage daughters as pawns in elaborate games of one-upsmanship
Even after witnessing the women’s claw sharpening rituals, Lucy never expects to see actual blood spilled—until Tina is shot dead on the public tennis court. Now Lucy is determined to unravel the close-knit knot of suspects. But when the threads threaten to entangle one of her own, Lucy will come face-to-face with a killer who has a thing or two to learn about motherly love…
Mother's Day Murder by Leslie Meier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am still enjoying this series. Always a fun and quick read. This time it is Mother's Day and Lucy's family takes her out for brunch. But then they are interrupted by Barbara Hume who makes a scene because someone is sitting at the table her family has sat at every year. The family that is sitting there is her frenemy, Tina Nowak. These 2 and their daughters compete at everything. Not to long after that Tina is shot at the tennis courts. Lucy witnesses it and now wants to know who would do this. It looks like Barbara did it but could she have been framed. Then we take a look at the 2 husbands. Meanwhile Lucy's 14 year old daughter seems to be getting bullied and then into some trouble herself. A Mother's job is never done.
