Publisher's Summary

Meg's paternal grandfather has hired Stanley Denton to find her grandmother Cordelia. Stanley has found a trail to his long-lost love in a small town a short drive away. He convinces Meg to come with him to meet her, but unfortunately, the woman they meet is Cordelia's cousin. Cordelia died several years ago, and the cousin suspects she was murdered by her long-time neighbor.

Stanley and Meg agree to help track down the killer. Grandfather even has perfect cover: He, along with most of Meg's family and friends in Caerphilly, will stage a rescue of the feral emus and ostriches that infest this town. But then the neighbor is murdered, and not only Cordelia's cousin but also the entire contingent of emu-rescuers are suspects.

    "E-Myoos - not E Moos!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of the more "meaty" titles in the Meg Langslow series. There are more issues, real and fictional. It's great that we've gotten another addition Meg Langslow's ever-increasing quirky family.


    What other book might you compare The Good, the Bad, and the Emus to and why?

    Offhand, I can't come up with another extremely well-written entertaining ecological / rural issue cozy.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    Other than mispronouncing emu every single time, her performance was excellent, as always!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Emus, mothers, murderers, and minerals - too many things are missing in this small town.


    Any additional comments?

    Emu is pronounced e-myoo. Not e-moo. Tooth grindingly irritating. That's the only reason to tick off one star for the performance.

    "Always a pleasure"

    It's always a pleasure to listen to one of the Meg Langslow series. They are well written and well performed. The mysteries aren't too taxing but usually have a fun twist. Hope Audible makes the rest of the series available soon.
