Invitation Only Murder

Invitation Only Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #26)
Title: Invitation Only Murder
Series: Lucy Stone Mystery
Author: Leslie Meier
Genre: Cozy mystery
Rating:3

With family tensions intensifying in Tinker’s Cove, part-time reporter Lucy Stone could really use some time off the grid. But after she RSVPs to an unconventional celebration on remote Holiday Island, Lucy realizes that disconnecting from reality comes at a deadly price . . .

Lucy doesn’t know what to expect as she arrives on a private Maine island owned by eccentric billionaire Scott Newman, only that the exclusive experience should make for a very intriguing feature story. An avid environmentalist, Scott has stripped the isolated property of modern conveniences in favor of an extreme eco-friendly lifestyle. A trip to Holiday Island is like traveling back to the nineteenth Century, and it turns out other residents aren’t exactly enthusiastic about living without cell service and electricity . . .

Before Lucy can get the full scoop on Scott, she is horrified to find one of his daughters dead at the bottom of a seaside cliff. The young woman’s tragic end gets pinned as an accident, but a sinister plot unfolds when there’s a sudden disappearance . . .

Stuck on a clammy island with murder suspects aplenty, the simple life isn’t so idyllic after all. Now, Lucy must tap into the limited resources around her to outwit a cold-blooded killer—before it’s lights out for her next

My thoughts

Would I recommend:yes
Would I read more of this series ?maybe
Would I read more by this author?maybe
While the story was cute there was times I just couldn't get into it and that's sad because I love cozy mysteries and I love how I can get lost in them but it took me a while to do so with this one .Maybe it was the tone of the story that just didn't fit but something just felt a bit off with this one but I just can't seem to put my finger on it. But I will be reading more of the series to see if I want to go on with it. With that said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it .
