We'll Always Have Parrots (Meg Langslow, Bk 5)
We'll Always Have Parrots - Meg Langslow, Bk 5
Author: Donna Andrews
Meg Langslow knew the fan convention for her actor-boyfriend's hit television series was going to be the ultimate in weird. But she came along because she figured Michael could use an occasional dose of sanity-and because it was an inspired place to sell her hand-crafted weapons. And so far, she was dealing pretty well with the costumed fans cam...  more »

"Perfectly showcases Donna Andrews' gift for deadpan comedy".....Denver Post

Fifth in the series and as mad-cap and likeable as the first four. This one had more crazy antics than any of the others, and if it wasn't for Donna Andrews writing style they would of seemed over-the-top. But she tempers the whackiness with down to earth sensibility, dry humor and a decent plot. This series is one of my all time favorites.

This was another great book by Donna Andrews, though perhaps not quite my favorite in the series.

Meg attends a fan convention "con" with her boyfriend Michael, part time actor and college Drama professor, for the cult TV show he's on. While at the hotel, someone kills Tamalaine Wynncliffe-Jones, the show's leading lady and executive producer, or the QB as the rest of the cast likes to call her (short for Queen Bi7c4, or as she likes to think Queen Bee). Of course, everyone is a suspect, and since Meg was the one to find the body, she uses her amateur sleuthing skills to dig up information and try to piece together the puzzle of who dunnit, since she feels the cops are continually looking in the wrong direction.

As usual, there's a chuckle per chapter at least as Andrews seamlessly blends humor in with her mysteries, and you're left guessing on the killer's identity right up until the end. Though each book in this series can stand alone, reading the previous books gives you greater insight into each character. Highly recommended!

This is a humerous, cozy mystery - the fourth in Donna Andrews' bird titles. The action takes place at a fan convention for a TV series. Meg's boyfriend is a member of the cast, and Meg is selling her wrought iron art. All is going well until the monkeys and parrots take over the lobby, costumed fans are scaling the balconies and the "Queen B" turns up brutally murdered.

Again, another great story by Andrews. I love Meg's father, he is a very special character in the stories. Thanks, Donna for great stories. This one centered on TV fan adoration is very good.

I'm a sucker for a clever or corny title.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The mystery was just convoluted enough that I didn't figure it out in the beginning - but if I did, who cares? This isn't meant to be high-brow or even all that realistic, but it is certainly entertaining.

Since this is the first of this author's works that I've read, I can't make a comparison to her other books, nor can I critique the growth (or non-growth) of the main character.

Not a laugh-out-loud read overall, there were a couple of spots that garnered an audible chuckle - both involving monkeys.
