As usual, Meg Lanslow gets unwillingly involved in a murder mystery, but this time with a new sidekick--a two-year old toddler! When Meg's distant friend asks her to take care of Timmy for "just a little while," Meg gets concerned when she does not return for days. Meg goes on a search for her friend, Karen, only to discover Karen's slain husband. Adding to the complications in her life are Meg's family members who bring snakes into her basement, rare finches to her bedroom and who cleverly disappear when needed.
Although I have really loved every Meg Lanslow I have read, I got a little impatient with this one. I guess I don't need the full background of each of her family members/friends anymore. I also felt there was entirely too much thought sharing and it interfered with the flow of the plot.
