I love this series!

I love all the characters in this series. I’ve listened to the entire series 3 times and some of the books more than that. I hope it will continue and Meg will continue to be her same snarky self!

Another excellent installment

Donna Andrews has crafted another excellent installment in her Meg Langslow series. Bernadette Dunne, once again gave a stellar performance giving distinct voices to all the characters. I enjoyed this production as usual as I always do with this series.

Just keeps getting better!

There is so much here. The family is as interesting as the Durrells of Corfu plus a murder mystery plus a terrorist plus educational plus natural disaster. Every time I read it I find more to interest me!

Worth waiting for!

Not a dissapointment! Donna Andrews writes yet another funny, imaginative, and original mystery that I will be rereading soon. It was that good.

Puntastic!

puntastic, situational-humor, verbal-humor, amateur-sleuth, family-dynamics, murder-investigation, blizzards Come for the laughs and puns, stay for a good mystery, and perhaps to learn some things! It's nearing Hanukkah and Christmas and India holidays, plus Japanese and vegetarian interests when everyone wants to be with their friends and family in their own homes in the US, Australia, Japan, and elsewhere. But instead they are stuck in a five star resort in Caerphilly, Virginia snowed in by an unexpected pair of blizzards while attending a scientific conference, Owl Fest, for ornithologists and others chaired by Grandfather Montgomery Blake, the acclaimed zoologist. It's a good thing that Cousin Horace is there with the Langslow family since he is a Crime Scene Tech and the only law enforcement on scene because the landlines and cell phones are out and there are only two satellite phones. Of course Dr Langslow is there, and that's a good thing because he's also the county's Medical Examiner and the death is not a simple one (and not just because 200 of the guests are suspects). Let the sleuthing begin! Bernadette Dunne continues to be totally fantastic as the voice of Meg Langslow and entourage!

Torturous

I gave it until Chapter 8 before I decided I couldn't suffer through another ridiculous sentence. Burdened down with owl information that was uninteresting, tedious, and with zero plot development insight I couldn't go on. Save your $$$. I wish I had.

Andrews does it again!

Donna Andrews and her cast of Caerphilly's finest not only make for an enjoyable read, but to listen makes for a most pleasurable evening. I look forward to each of Meg's adventures with great anticipation, like welcoming a cherished friend or family member home for Christmas. This particular story managed to get me through a painful tooth trauma that led to equally painful mouth and throat infection. And if a story can take your mind off pain that numbing agents and antibiotics can't handle, well, you know it has to be better than just another good mystery! Bless you, Donna Andrews, you are more than talented, and the gal who narrates your stories is a perfect fit. Don't ever change to someone else.
