Hen of the Baskervilles
Hen of the Baskervilles - Donna Andrews

It is the second year of the UnFair and Meg is the Deputy Director and she and her volunteers are sleeping in the tents for the animals and she is woken up to the shock that someone has stolen some Heritage Chickens. As the fair is progressing many people are causing problems, Janette is hassling people to sell her their heritage animals, someone is destroying other people's entries into the different categories (pumpkin, quilt, etc) and Janette is trying to make Meg let her play her music so loud that people run from them. 

 

The other winemakers band together to get Janette out of the tent, because of her behavior and her bad ways with others. New rules are created to deal with certain problems, others are strictly enforced, but then the next night, her married boyfriend ends up being shot in the parking lot and the Clay County Sheriff and the Caerphilly Chief come to an agreement where one of the Clay County Deputies is to help with the work, but the Caerphilly Department can take the lead, but the deputy assigned has rubbed many the wrong way. As they continue to search to find who murdered the man and who is stealing chickens and destroying property. 

 

My kids were chuckling over some of the things that happened in the story and it was a fun story. So improbable, but fun.

The Chimera Affair - Keira Andrews

When young Sebastian Brambani meets a sexy and exciting older man, he’s easily seduced. But for spy Kyle Grant, it’s all business. Sebastian is simply a pawn in Kyle’s mission to acquire a dangerous chemical weapon from Sebastian’s criminal father. Kyle’s life is his work for a shadowy international agency protecting the world from evil, and he can’t worry about what will happen to Sebastian when the job is done.

Sebastian’s unwitting role in Kyle’s plan is the last straw for his ruthless father, who has been embarrassed by his gay son for the last time. But when Kyle discovers Sebastian could be the key to finding the deadly Chimera, he rescues him from his father's hitman and fights to keep him alive. Can a hardened spy and naïve college student take down a criminal kingpin, stay one step ahead of the killers on their trail—and fight the scorching attraction between them?

This gay romance from Keira Andrews features sexy spies, an age difference, a sheltered and passionate virgin, action and adventure, and of course a happy ending. 

BONUS STORY INCLUDEDThe Argentine Seduction, a sequel for Kyle and Sebastian featuring unexpected jealousy, protectiveness, and a dangerous mission in the simmering heat of Buenos Aires. (And of course a happy ending!)

The Good, the Bad and the Emus
The Good, the Bad, and the Emu - Donna Andrews

It is summer and Meg is trying to cut her bushes and keep her yard nice while watching her four-year-old twin sons and niece, Natalie, who has come to help watch the boys. After she gets cut on her tools when her niece screams, she is in the ER having sutures and Stanley Denton, a friend and PI, comes and asks that she take a trip to a nearby town and help him get in with a woman who is related to the woman that was Meg's grandmother, that has died. When she comes to town she gains admittance to the house and she and Stanley agree that they will try to figure a way to help find out what happened to her grandmother on the cold December night that she was murdered. On the way back to Caerphilly, Denton sees a very large bird that looks either like an emu or an ostrich. When they get back to her parent's place, the information inspires her grandfather, Dr. Blake, to get the group together and go rescue the birds and take them to Carolyn's sanctuary. While they are there, a man is poisoned by scotch he put in his coffee, that had been a gift to her grandfather and someone left candies at her cousin's home. The sheriff is trying to find out who murdered Cordelia, who attempted to poison Dr. Blake and who tried to poison Meg's cousin. At the same time, they go out and try to find the birds. It is a very fun story and there was a moment in the book where she talks about her friend keeping paperwork handy for the "frequent fliers'" to the emergency room. I remember those times and not nearly as fondly as I could. Although we can now laugh about some of the things that landed us there. 

 

The books were read out of order, but that is the beauty of these stories, they are great in order or out of order.

Fresh off the public library waitlist...
Wildfire - Ilona Andrews

...what a happy surprise.

 

The waitlist was such a long one, library patrons must be just devouring this book very quickly and being courteous enough to return it quickly.

 

I have a cat sprawled in a rare sunspot after months of gloomy gray days so I think 

I'll join hm and read.  

 

Totally ignoring all the pruning and spring cleaning I ought to be doing.  Maybe I'll stir enough to walk down the car-length driveway to get the mail later.

 

I've learned I never regret time spent with kitties.

One Fell Sweep
One Fell Sweep - Ilona Andrews

Part Star Trek Next Generation, part Sherlock Holmes, this series is pretty magical. Dina Demille is Captain Picard with an edge. She's strong, she's witty, she's kind, and she knows what she wants - and the troubles and tribulations she gets involved in speak to greater world conflicts in a way that's humorous, poignant, and so very human. It's also an absolute pleasure to read - I don't remember the last time I cared about the characters so much and not experienced a crazy amount of angst. I'm now also an avid follower of Andrews' blog that posts chapters of this series weekly, and the next installment focuses on Maud. Color me intrigued and very occupied during my lunchbreak. 5 shining galactic stars!
