At the start of Meier's delightful 19th Lucy Stone mystery (after 2012's Chocolate Covered Murder), the families gathered outside elderly Vivian Van Vorst's mansion, Pine Point, in rural Tinker's Cove, Maine, for VV's annual Easter egg hunt are puzzled to find the gates closed. Then the Easter Bunny emerges from the house, runs clumsily toward the gates, and collapses on the ground. The Easter Bunny-VV's grandson, Van Vorst Duff-dies on the way to the hospital. VV had always been generous with her wealth, but Lucy, part-time reporter for the local newspaper, learns that she has been reclusive recently and funds may have been tight. Did some envious family member off Duff because he was VV's heir, or did he die of natural causes? If it's murder, is money or revenge the motive? Cozy fans will enjoy Lucy's hunt for the truth. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
