Easter Bunny Murder by Leslie Meier

Lucy Stone is taking her grandson to the Easter Egg Hunt that is held every year at the big house on the hill.  Sometimes the eggs contain gift certificates and other goodies, it's not just eggs.  Nothing is ready for them this year though and while everyone is wondering why, the front door opens and the Easter Bunny comes out.  He staggers up to the gate and then falls to the ground and dies.  It was not exactly what everyone was expecting.

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review.  The book is available now; check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is #19 in the Lucy Stone series.  Lucy doesn't think the man wearing the bunny costume died of natural causes.  Of course, no one else is listening.  When she hears gossip about how the old woman living in the big house has lost her money because she's not donating like she used to, she thinks there may have been another reason he died...

As Lucy searches for the truth, she has to be careful not to step on anyone's toes.  She also has to be cautious so the killer doesn't come after her.  She doesn't do so well with that.

The story about greed in a good family also has an odd little twist at the end when the killer is revealed.  I liked that touch.  Why not give it a read and see what you think?

Happy reading.
