Publisher's Summary

Meg Langslow's summer is not going swimmingly. In her small Virginia hometown, she's the maid of honor at the nuptials of three loved ones - each of whom has dumped the planning in her hands. One bride is set on including a Native American herbal purification ceremony while another wants live peacocks on the lawn. Only help from the town's drop-dead gorgeous hunk keeps Meg afloat in a sea of relatives and outrageous neighbors. 

But when an offensive newcomer, who hints at skeletons in the guests' closets, is found dead under suspicious circumstances, level-headed Meg's to-do list extends from flower arrangements and bridal registries to catching a killer - before the next event is her own funeral.

I love funny cosy mysteries!

This book reminds me of the zany romantic comedies from the 30s & 40s. Bizarre situations, odd people, unlikely occurrences and hilarious! When you're in the mood for s good listen that is light and funny, this series is for you.

The blacksmith wins the day!

Maid of honor for three weddings in less than two hot summer months complete with Bridezillas, a body on the beach, attempts at murder, and what else?!?
Meg Lanslow is about to lose her mind in the Commonwealth of Virginia!
The audio is delightedly performed by Bernadette Dunne.

Where it all begins...

A romp to remember. Meg and her zany family and friends find weddings are a risky pastime.

Why did I wait so long

Finding new authors in cozy mysteries can be difficult. Everyone's tastes are dramatically different as they should be. I hesitated to read Donna Andrews even with all the great reviews and awards due to the comments always on "Wacky" or "Kooky" characters. Generally those have no depth. I ran out of my regular and plunged into the painful depths of finding a new author for the summer with more than 3 titles. I have a rule about established series. I don't want to waste my time with 1 and done. This was a pleasant surprise for a first book. Characters of a small town, with some quirks but I have Kentucky relatives so it seemed normal. Best part I took me a bit to figure out for sure who did it and even at the end I thought maybe I was wrong Those are the best kind. I'm thrilled there are 25 in the series. If at book 3 I'm still intrigued. She is a keeper for an author.

Love the story, but not the narrator

I've read all of Donna Andrews books and was so excited when I found out her first was finally coming out in audio. What a huge disappoint when I listened to it. Bernadette Dunne isn't bad, but she sounds way too old to be Meg. A narrator can make or break the book and this one is broken. Since Ms. Dunne is the narrator for all the Meg Langslow books this will probably be my first and only purchase.

Execellent start to a riesnew se

Donna Andrews has such a wonderful imagination, always coming up with original storylines. I’m so glad Audible finally has the first two in the Meg Langslow series. Bernadette Dunne is Meg Langslow. She gives a wonderful performance as she brings it all to life.
