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?

"...engaging..." (Publishers Weekly)
I love these books. I love the characters, setting, and pacing. I wish audible would get more of this series.
The narration was fine. This is my first and last Leslie Meier book
I expect Christmas cozies to have a plot surrounded by the spirit of the season. Not harping on a bad economy. Listening to this book was a chore
It's pretty bad when you realize you just don't care who dunnit.
