Publisher's Summary

The hilly terrain next to the old Sprocket house that Meg Langslow and her fiancé, Michael, are refurbishing is the perfect location for an extreme croquet field - even the legs of cows and sheep are convenient extra wickets. Croquet has become all the rage in Caerphilly...until it appears someone in town has taken the rage a bit too literally. While stumbling down a steep bank after her ball, Meg encounters the body of a fresh female corpse with a mallet-sized dent in her head. If that isn't reason enough to call a timeout, it turns out that Michael knew the woman from years before. Ever curious, Meg decides that playing armchair sleuth is far more important than working on her game.

    "Family fun!"

    I love this family! I'm going to suggest a "milder" version of extreme croquet to my family! So much of this rings true with my family. It's a fun read that you actually figure out as they do! I'll be checking out more of this series!

    "This is an EXTREMELY fun murder mystery!"

    Another older book in the Meg Langslow series was recently released. I was very happy with the opportunity to "hear" this book. Take a nice genteel game of croquet and turn it into an extreme game filled with cows, sheep, barking dogs, college students, a gaggle of women, and a dead body. What? Who is the dead person and why oh why is the body found at the edge of the tournament grounds? This zany book is filled with intrigue, extremely competitive women of a certain age, college students, and Meg's crazy family and friends. I loved this book when I first read it years ago and it translates beautifully into an audio version. There is plently to laugh about in this cozy mystery and I highly recommend it to one and all. Audible, please release this entire series in the audio format.

    "Good story. Great series"

    I recently went back and relistened to this book. Fun, especially when knowing the characters from the later books.
