Meg Langslow knows that murder is never pretty. And things are about to take an ugly turn. . .
Go ahead...make Meg's day. It's not as if her life could get any weirder. Meg's long-lost paternal grandfather, Dr. Blake, entered her life a few years ago after seeing Meg's picture in the paper-she's a dead ringer for her grandmother, Cordelia, after all. Now local private investigator Stanley Denton has been hired to track down Cordelia's whereabouts...only to find that she mysteriously passed away within the year. And Meg's newly found cousin, Annabel, claims it was murder. So much for a festive family reunion...
Stanley and Meg agree to help track down the killer and get justice for Cordelia. Dr. Blake has an idea about how to distract the locals from their investigation: He'll stage a rescue of the feral emus that have escaped from an abandoned local farm. When murder strikes again, Meg suspects that the killer may indeed be among the flock of rescue volunteers...but what now? While her grandfather pursues that lead, Meg continues to investigate both murders with a lot of help from Annabel, who can shed some light on some long-buried family secrets. But will they solve the case before the killer strikes again?

Fun cozy mystery with murder occurring as the emus are being rounded up. It made me think about the environment and how we abuse it and how we can save it. My biggest question was why did Blake and Cordelia never reunite? Easy to read as a standalone though it is part of a series. I liked the charac...
I'm a long-time fan of the Meg Langslow series. Book one will always be my favourite - Murder with Peacocks.There have been a few hits and misses along the way, but more than anything I just like catching up with Meg and her extended and eccentric family. So for me - I enjoyed this read, even thou...
17 books and Donna Andrews is still kicking tail feathers. Meg Langslow might be is my favorite modern-day cozy sleuth. She is smart, organised, strong both mentally and physically (she's a blacksmith) and most of all - most importantly - she's pragmatic and over flows with common sense. There a...
