quick read- 2nd in the Lucy Stone mystery series

With three kids underfoot, a fourth on the way, and an oppressive heatwave bearing down, homemaker Lucy Stone is hardly enjoying an idyllic summer. But her preoccupation with swelling ankles, Bavarian creme doughnut cravings, and sewing endless sequins on ballet recital tutus gives way to dread when Lucy learns that her waistline isn't the only thing that's recently vanished from Tinker's Cove...

The strange disappearance of a retired dance instructor has the tiny coastal town in a tizzy that turns to terror when a notoriously cantankerous shopkeeper is slain right on Main Street. Now Lucy's up to her bulging belly in local suspects and red herrings. Eluded by a cold-blooded killer, with her due-date looming and the thermometer soaring, Lucy figures something has to break soon. With any luck, it won't be her water...

This is a one-night read that will help you forget the issues of the day and just relax and have fun.
Meier gives us a little town full of long acquainted friends, curmudgeons, civic leaders and family. The disappearance of a dance professor from the local college sets neighbors and friends on a search that stalls out just as a local housewife discovers the body of a mean old store owner. For a short read, it has many twisty plot points, a few surprises and some serious moments.
A great cozy mystery without gore, but not without suspense

2nd book in Lucy Stone series. I enjoyed this one better than the first, though it dealt with darker subject matter.
