Another easy read in this series. Does needs a little bit of editing. Hope to read next one in the near future.

I received this ARC in return for an honest review and I loved it! Take an ex-CIA agent turned teacher, twelve Girl Scouts on a tour of DC for selling the most cookies, and a kidnapped missing former handler from Merry Wrath's days in the CIA stir in a crazy King vulture the girls named Mr. Fancy Pants who's addicted to cookies, simmer with the Yakuza, a Japanese Syndicate leader who's loony and you heck of a story! All Merry wanted to do was take her troop and show them the Capital, but her ...more
I jumped into this book immediately following book 2, and while I really enjoyed the change of scenery and getting to spend time with some new characters, I wish someone had paid a bit more attention to continuity. The last book ended with 2 kittens, this one had 3. There was also some confusion about Merry's name versus her mom's. There were several small instances where I was thrown out of the story going, "Wait, a minute that's not how I remember it..." Overall, in spite of several small ...more

Merry and her girl scouts are off to Washington, DC. Her former CIA handler calls her for help while Merry and the girls are meeting the First Lady. Mix in the Yakuza, Moonshiners, and an escaped King Vulture and you have the third book in one of my favorite series. Can't wait for the next one.

Merry and her Girl Scout Troop are in D.C. when she gets a call for help from Riley.

What I enjoyed:
* The girls are a blast. I love how they never panic and are always up for adventure.
* Mr. Fancy Pants the escaped King Vulture who seemed to be following Merry.
* The sheer absurdity of the plot is just a lot of fun.

What could have been better:
* Evelyn was a horrible helper (view spoiler)
* The mystery (view spoiler)

Snark - full of funds

Merry's snarky internal dialogue keeps me laughing out loud! Great plot and pacing - the action is non stop . And the troop girls are a stitch !

Don't start this book before bed. You won't be able to put it down. Hilariously funny, action-packed, high tension, and crazy antics. I love, love, love this series! I suppose you could read this book as a standalone. More fun to read the series in order. Poor Merry. After being outed as a CIA agent, she slunk back home with a new name and new appearance where her BFF talks her into co-leading a Girl Scout Troop of 8-year-olds. When they win a trip to Washington DC (for selling the most cookies ...more

On a trip to Washington DC Merry and her troupe deal with a lot of things including a vulture who escapes from the zoo, an absentee parent helper, and members of the Japanese crime syndicate trying to nail Merry for the crime of killing their leader. CIA agent Marie helps keep the kids happy while trying to solve the mystery at hand. This was a great installment in the hilarious antics of a retired CIA agent turned scout leader. Settle down with a snack and get ready to laugh your butt off. I ...more

While Marshmallow S'more Murder is the third book in the Merry Wrath series, it is the first I have read. Merry has taken her girl scouts troop to Washing DC, but nothing goes smoothly there. Spies, attack birds and chaos follows Merry and the troop. I did find it odd that past memories were revealed during dreams and at first, I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be premonitions or memories. But other than that oddity, I thought the book was highly enjoyable and a worthy read.

Only 3 stars because I was quite enjoying the series until this one. Still a fun story but did the author take a break for a while and forget to refresh before writing again? I was bothered by all the inconsistencies. This book changed a few things from the previous two that were set and not a easy change with a back story. I felt unsatisfied with the ending as well - felt like we retconned a character to make the ending work. I'm unsure I will go on now but am tempted since it is still ...more

Leslie Langtry does it again! I am a big fan of this author, everything I have read has been great, this is no exception. This is the third installment of the Merry Wrath Mystery Series and may be the best one yet. Merry is an ex-CIA agent turned Girl Scout Leader. In this adventure she takes the troop to Washington, D.C. , they won the trip for selling the most cookies. What could go wrong? Merry again finds herself involved in a crazy mystery that does not allow her to completely get away from ...more

What could go wrong when Merry takes her troop to DC. Oh my, you have to read to see. Merry ends up on the trip with a mostly absent co-chaperone. She has to visit her prior employer and her troop has an unforgettable tour of the facility and the city. The adventures in this book are unforgettable. Who knew the troop of girls could be a match for the CIA! Great read that will keep you reading long after you said you would stop!

Struggled reading this one

For some reason I really struggled with this story, even say it down for a few days. Riley might be one reason since I really like Rex or it !ight be the bird. I am not sure just glad I finished it.

Crap on a cracker the things that go on during a girl scout trip makes me glad I wasn't ever one! 😉 The last part of the book with Riley makes me think he's in love with Merry but maybe that's wishful thinking on my part😞.

I wish I had GS leaders like this when I was a kid! Love the friendship between Kelly and Merry and I really enjoy all the great side characters that continue through this book in the series!

This was a fun mystery with an amusing detective. You will have to suspend belief in some of the happenings, but the Washington DC details were fun.

Leslie Langtry's S' More Murder is funny from the beginning to the kind and crammed with delicious mystery, a troop of girl scouts, a current boyfriend and an ex-boyfriend and international spy adventure.

Merry Wraths troop had won a nationwide contest for selling Girl Scout cookies so she need to take them and along with one of the mothers for an educational trip to Washington DC. Up until then,

Girl Scouts in DC. What could go wrong? Apparently an escaped Mr. Fancy Pants (a creepy looking king culture that has a thing for little girls apparently), pool escapades, and crazy Tokyo mafia. All of which the boy crazy, blood thirsty, young troops found exciting as all get out. I got several looks from the bf for laughing at this book while he was foolishly trying to sleep.

Another fun adventure in scouting! This time Merry, and a mother of a troop member, take 12 girls from Iowa to the Nation's capital. Thank heavens Merry has friends (in the CIA) and family (her senator father and her mother) there to help out. The mom isn't much help-she is more interested in shopping. Things turn out to be more than a scouting reward trip (for selling the most cookies); Merry has an undercover op to find a missing CIA agent as well as keep the girls safe and happy. Somehow she ...more

I hope the series never stops!!!

I think the book really deserves 5 stars because right from the beginning the reader's attention is grabbed. I have read all the Merry Wrath books and they have not disappointed! In order to be able to fully enjoy the book as much as I have, I think it would best to start with the first two books. But hey, it is even a good read just on its own. From when I first started the book, all I was able to think about is what would happen next! This book is not a waste of

Wow! I really love the Merry Wrath Mysteries series of books, but I believe Ms. Langtry has surpassed herself this time. I admit to being surprised many times, but totally shocked at the ending! If for nothing else all readers will get a huge giggle at Mr. Fancy Pants. This book takes place in Washington, D.C., where the Girl Scout Troop has won a visit after selling the most Girl Scout Cookies. While there, Merry gets a phone call from a friend asking for her help. You don't want to miss this ...more

Loved this book! Our favorite retired CIA spy (Merry) gets into mischief with her girl scout troop The girls won a trip to Washingto, DC. Once there, Merry learns that her former handler is in trouble. As she tries to help him, she is also responsible for her group of twelve girls. But are people following Merry or is she just paranoid?

This is a fun and quick read that fans of the genre will love. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone book, however, it is so good that you really owe

Oh book three...Although I wish I had skipped you and never had a bad memory associated with the series, it did help to have Evelyn Trout introduced in the book which carried on into book four. We also interacted with Merry's parents which was nice character background. Honestly if you can get over the absolute silliness of the Mr. Fancy Pants storyline - which I could not - then you'll be fine.
