Pressestimmen

PRAISE FOR DONNA ANDREWS AND HER MEG LANGSLOW MYSTERIES

DUCK THE HALLS

"Andrews leavens the action with her trademark humor, including dueling Christmas dinners and an extravagant—and extravagantly funny—live nativity scene." —Publishers Weekly

"Duck the Halls offers a wealth of yuletide yuks amid the Christmas carnage, and Andrews’ faithful fans will flock to greet the birth of her latest funfest."—Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Meg, as well as her quirky extended family, makes this humorous cozy a holiday treat." —Booklist

HEN OF THE BASKERVILLES

"The 15th novel in this bird-themed popular cozy mystery series offers more fine-feathered foibles to chuckle over. Andrews’ ever-present humor and detailed animal lore will be familiar pleasures, and the grounded and endearing heroine offers the perfect balance to the silly shenanigans in this neatly plotted potboiler."—RT Book Reviews

"Diverting…Enjoyable."—Publishers Weekly

 

SOME LIKE IT HAWK

"Uproarious."—Criminal Element

"[This] series gets better all the time." —Booklist

 

THE REAL MACAW

"As always, Andrews laces this entertaining whodunit with wit, a fine storyline, and characters we’ve come to know and love."—Richmond Times-Dispatch

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Skunks in the Baptists’ choir loft, an emerald tree boa in the Episcopalians’ Christmas decorations, and several hundred ducks in the Catholics’ sanctuary - a prankster is targeting the churches of Caerphilly and, as usual, it falls to Meg Langslow to clean up the resulting mess. And that’s before a dead body is found in the basement (the ‘undercroft’ as Meg’s mother insists on calling it) of Trinity Episcopal.

As with most of the Meg Langslow books, the mystery takes a backseat to the general mayhem that is Meg’s family. The pranks start happening right at the beginning of the story but the murder doesn’t happen until about halfway through. This time, there isn’t only one mystery but three interwoven ones (the prankster, the murder, and an attempted theft).
All the characters, even the secondary ones, have distinct personalities and it’s great fun to see what they’re up to this time. While this book can be read as a standalone, much of the enjoyment (in my opinion at least) is derived from seeing the latest antics of already beloved characters like Meg’s father and her brother Rob.
I especially enjoyed hearing about some of the characters that didn’t show up in the last couple of books. We get a quick update on what Eileen, Timmy, and Dr. Smoot (among others) are up to. Also, Michael’s mom makes a reappearance (finally!) and stages a duel with Meg’s mother over who can produce the most outlandish Christmas dinner. We also get to meet the formidable Judge Jane. Her ‘courtroom’ scene is a hoot.

This is a humorous cozy mystery where the emphasis is definitely on the humor. If that’s what you’re looking for, I can only recommend this book and all the others in the Meg Langslow series.

After I was very disapointed from the last two books of the Meg Langslow Mysteries this one is getting closer to the original way of writing. However still I am missing the interacting of the characters like they were before. Meg's father was hardly mentioned, her mom obviously turned into a saint and Rob was barely mentioned. It was nice but I was a little disapointed to know the killer even before the murder was committed. Hope the improvement for the next one will continue and I am more than happy to rate five stars again - this one just gets (barely) four stars!

Ein weiterer gelungener Band der Reihe, Meg und ihre Lieben müssen sich mit diversen Problemen herumschlagen und meistern diese natürlich mit wenig Aufwand. Das tut dem Vergnügen aber keinen Abbruch. Ich habe das Buch sehr gerne gelesen und freue mich schon auf den nächsten Band.

I love Meg and her family, unconditionally 31. Oktober 2013
Von M. C. Carter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Are the later books as laugh out loud funny as Peacocks, Puffins, etc? Maybe not but a lot of that is familiarity. In the same way that Lucy wasn't always at the top of her game, the Watterson-Langslows aren't either. But they are warm, loving, more than a tad bit crazy and I wait anxiously and eagerly for the next offering. Ducks didn't disappoint. One thing I would like to see is a bit more of Michael. The older the twins get, the less involved Michael is in Meg's daily routine and I do think that hurts the books some. The mystery doesn't really matter to me I am just happy to be invited to the next family get together....

Christmas Magic! 22. Oktober 2013
Von Elizabeth Etzel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is Donna Andrews second Holiday book. Meg and Michael's twin boys are 3 or 4, Michael and Rob have joined the volunteer fire department and Meg does what she does best: organize.
She has to find places for the New Life Baptist Choir to rehearse and perform their Christmas concert after the choirloft is skunked, The Catholic Church is out due to an influx of ducks in the sanctuary (around 100 of them). Trinity Episcopalian (or is it Anglican?) hosts the concerts until a burned body is found in the undercroft.
Being Christmas, we get Michael' Dickens performance, competing dinners and lots of love.

Another winner! 14. November 2013
Von Jennifer Maki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Another stellar entry in the series from Donna Andrews. I particularly loved the ending, thought it was very much in line with exactly why I love this series and the Langslow/Hollingsworth/Waterston families.

Christmas is Turning Out to be Prankful 27. Dezember 2013
Von Mark Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The weekend before Christmas, Michael is awakened by his new beeper. He's joined the local volunteer fire department, and they're being called to the Baptist church. Only when they arrive, they find out that it wasn't a fire - someone had left a bunch of skunks in the choir loft.

Meg is drafted to work out schedules to allow the services and concerts of the Baptists and the other churches in the area to go on as planned but with new locations since the Baptist church is unusable until they get the smell out, but things don't improve when another prank hits another church the next night. Who is behind it all? And what might the motive be? Things become even more urgent when a body is found in one church's basement.

Those who follow this series will quickly note that this is the second Christmas entry in the long running cozy series, and there are some references in this one that recall the traditions the first one centered around. This book is all new, and Meg and Michael's twins weren't around the last time either, which gives this book a feeling of being new.

And it is pure delight as always. Meg and her family are charming as ever, and the events unfold at a great pace. The book never lost my interest once. I did figure out the ending early on, but I didn't have all the pieces in place, although they all made sense. The twins add a great new dimension to the book; as always, they totally steal their scenes.

Fans will love this Christmas visit with Meg. In fact, anyone who wants a light, comedic mystery to put them in the Christmas spirit will love this book.
