New Year’s Eve Murder by Leslie Meier

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Elizabeth and her mother Lucy have won a makeover in a contest by Jolie magazine.  They, along with five other mother-daughter duos, go to New York for a weekend.  The contestants will all be judged, and the winning duo will win $10,000. 

Lucy has just received a letter stating that due to their income increasing, they owe $10,000 towards Elizabeth's tuition that would have previously been covered by her scholarship.  That would be a problem except that this year their income has dropped significantly.  Lucy wants more than ever to win that $10,000 prize. 

During the makeovers, the fashion editor is killed and Elizabeth is hospitalized.  It turns out Anthrax is the reason for both.  Lucy sets off to find who could have sent it and why.  She uncovers a lot of misdeeds, including quite a few hot-button issues.  

I really like this series.  Lucy is a fun character.  This time she is outside her comfort zone, and because of that I think we see a different side of her.  I didn't mind that.  I thought it was written to fit the context of the story and situation, as well as the fact they were in New York city. 

I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next in this fabulous series!
