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.
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.
Donna Andrews was born in Yorktown, Virginia, the setting of Murder with Peacocks and Revenge of the Wrought Iron Flamingos, and now lives and works in Reston, Virginia. When not writing fiction, Andrews is a self-confessed nerd, rarely found away from her computer, unless she's messing in the garden
