Author: Donna Andrews
Croquet is a genteel game, usually played on a summer afternoon on a tranquil green lawn. Extreme Croquet is a whole other story.

We accidentally ordered both the hardcover and paperback of this book, and they came in about the same time. I read one, my wife read the other. That was fun.

This is just as good as the first six of this wonderful series. Well, not as good as Peacocks, and certainly better than Parrots, but plenty good.

Meg Lanslow and her family and the denizens of Caerphilly, PA, are all slightly off in delightful ways (her family) and sometimes in sinister ways (the denizens). Reading about them is always pleasant.

This story has plenty of gentle humor arising from the situations and characters. You'll love Meg and her live-in fiance, Michael. You'll be uncomfortable around the scheming historical society ladies. You'll shake your head at the antics of the Shiffleys, the tribe of locals who do all the construction work in the area.

Read the book. It's fun, it's gentle, it's warm and pleasant.

Oh, yes. Neither my wife nor I could exactly recall the motive of the killer a day after finishing the book. Doesn't matter, though; we clearly recall enjoying every minute of reading the book.

Meg and Michael are still renovating their home...i enjoyed this addition to the series more than some of the others.....(but it cannot beat Peacocks)...This time they are involved in"extreme croquet", which utilizes the legs of cows and sheep as extra wickets. Meg slides down a bank after her ball and discovers a body whose head seems to have met with a croquet mallet.....As usual a good, fun read....
