"Lucy normally loves planning for the holidays, but this year, Tinker's Cove has fallen on hard times. With so many residents struggling, Christmas festivities are a luxury some can't afford. But the story's not so bleak at Downeast Mortgage, whose tightfisted owners, Jake Marlowe and Ben Scribner, are raking in profits from everyone's misfortune. Half the town is in their debt, so when the miserly Marlowe is murdered, the mourners are few and the suspects are many. Scribner believes Marlowe's ghost has come to warn him of his own demise, and when he starts receiving death threats, Lucy wonders if there's more to the omen than the ravings of a bitter old pinchpenny. Can Lucy solve the case and deck the halls before the killer strikes again?" --from Amazon.

Read the hard copy. Always enjoy this cozy domestic mystery series. I've been reading them for many years now. Lucy Stone and her family are engaging characters and they passage of time has only made the series better and the characters more fully developed.

I found the writing quite stilted and am surprised that this series has lasted so long. I also found that the detecting was more a process of elimination and the leap to the person that actually done it was a large one. I will likely not read any more in the series.

I totally agree with Wolfespearl! I've never read the original A Christmas Carol, but I did find that the poor financial situation in Tinker's Cove was a bit over emphasized to the point where it was really starting to bore me. The ending was good though. It was also a coincidence that it mentioned Geoff and Angie needing kidney transplants on the very day I was researching organ transplants for a project.

A retelling of the traditional tale, Meier strays sometimes a little too close to overdoing it, but in the end she exercises enough restraint to make this an enjoyable read.
