Bake Sale Murder was the first full length book that I have read by Meier having only read a novella before, and I found that I really enjoyed it. Despite being further along in the series, I found that I was able to pick up quickly the main characters and follow things pretty well. This book can be enjoyed as a standalone or as part of the series. I really enjoyed the world that Meier created with her small neighborhood and local group of ladies and neighbors that were center stage in the book. I also liked how Meier tied together the two mysteries (who was the murderer and who was sending the anonymous letters to the Pennysaver). Lucy was very well developed and it made sense as to why she was drawn into solving both mysteries. Overall Bake Sale Murder was a great read that I really enjoyed, and I would definitely recommend it and this series to any cozy mystery fan. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.
