In Father's Day Murder: A Lucy Stone Mystery, the 10th entry in Leslie Meier's engaging cozy series after Birthday Party Murder (Forecasts, July 8, 2002), Lucy is feeling guilty about attending a Boston newspaper conference while her kids take care of celebrating Father's Day with her husband back home in Tinker Cove, Maine. But her mood shifts when the suspicious death of newspaper tycoon Luther Read, a patriarch unbeloved by his offspring, sets Lucy on the trail of a possible parricide.
