Meg Langslow is pregnant with twins when Michael asks if she wouldn’t mind having a houseguest. One of his doctoral students is directing his new translation of a play by a minor Spanish playwright, who has agreed to come to town for the production. Surely they can spare some room for such an important academic cause?
Señor Mendoza turns out to be a partygoer who loves to spend raucous evenings among adoring students…at La Casa Langslow. Into this chaos arrives the dean of the English department, who insists the play be canceled. Then the unthinkable happens: The dean is found murdered, and Meg’s house has become a crime scene.
Now it’s up to Meg to help Chief Burke solve the murders, rescue the student’s dissertation, make sure Michael doesn’t lose tenure, and, while she’s at it, give birth to twins. Encore! Encore!

Students from Caerphilly College, where Michael teaches drama, slung out into the cold by the College's heating system going kerf...
It was cute to see Meg running around pregnant. It was also nice to not have Meg trying to actively solve the murder. She just kept learning new things without trying to. Little cozy mysteries get tiring when the authors have the same things happen over and over again. A little change is nice. Altho...
