Who would have thought Meg would be here for 17 books? This is a nice next chapter in Meg Langslow's life. The twins are growing, Michael's still teaching and (thanks to yet another injury to her hand), Meg's investigating another suspicious death. I would wish for more time spent with Michael and less time with some of the subsidiary characters. And I want Meg to have some time blacksmithing, darn it, because I loved those parts. (But it is authentic that with twins she doesn't have time.) Ther...more

Very disappointed at this lacklustre addition to a great series. Pedestrian, often cliched writing. Loose ends (who let the emus out & why?) dangling. And everything just conveniently falling into place. Also, our heroine came off as an entitled twit. Sigh.

Just when I think that the last Meg story was the best, Donna Andrews does it again. So glad to finally meet Cordelia and get more of the entire Langslow clan. Love it!!!

Book 17 in The Meg Langslow mystery series. I've read and enjoyed them all. I preordered the next book in the series "The Nightingale Before Christmas" Can't wait to read it.

As always, reading Donna Andrews is a pure delight. I loved this story that has Meg go on the hunt for the killer of her long-lost, paternal grandmother. Funny, sweet, and with the right amount of danger, this book does not disappoint. I hope in future installments of the series, Meg has more time to do blacksmithing and there is more of her and Michael's relationship. I would also like to see more of her mother and dad's interactions which are always a hoot. Overall, a must-read.

Another excellent Donna Andrews. A nice set of mysteries to solve, relationships to explore and jokes to laugh about whilst having bird adventures! I did enjoy this but did unfortunately "get" the murderer long before the ending hence 4 stars as it still made me laugh out loud and was an enjoyable read.
