Following up the mega-hit (well, it was REALLY popular with cozy mystery lovers--won a prize) Murder with Peacocks, here we find our lovable, sensible Meg Lanslow again surrounded by her weird but nice family. We learn about puffins (another type of bird native to Maine, apparently) while Meg and lover Michael try to solve a murder on a small resort island. Surely her dad didn't do it!
This one is probably the second weakest in the series (after Parrots), but it's well worth reading to keep up to date on Meg, Michael, and the other zanies in her family.
If you haven't read this series, get Murder with Peacocks, read it, then gather up the rest of the series and have a great time. I envy you the pleasure of discovering these wonderful books.
Great book - I have all of her books in this series and they are my "go-to" books when I need a pick me up. Donna Andrews sense of humor is fantastic, just up my alley.
Poor Meg Langslow has the week end from Hell when she and her SO go to Monhegan Island to get away from it all. A hurricane hits and to complicate things a murder occurs and there is no way to get help until the storm passes.
This was the first book I had read by Donna Andrews, and I found it so interesting that I now look forward to reading all of her books!
Second in series, very amusing mystery follow-up to first book, with all the same gang back, including heroine Meg's wacky family.
