couldn't get into it, although I love birds. I got to page 1 and noticed text like "should I use the breast pump now or later?". OMG after that I am returning the book. Ick

This is the third book of hers that I have read. The first was very funny and charming, the second was similar, and this one seems like another book just like the other two I have read. She evidently has a formula that works for her. Three is enough for me.

Love this series. Well written with great protagonist and other characters. This installment doesn't have quite as much detecting as some of the others, but nonetheless!

I love this series and this title maintains the standard. The mystery is fun, but spending a few hours with Meg Langslow and her collection of whacko relatives is a real treat. A wonderfully humourous whodunit.

As usual, it is a real zoo around Meg's home, but she unmasks the murderer at the risk of her life. The other "bad guys" get sorted out satisfactorily, too. Well, what else would you expect, with Meg and family involved?

Donna Andrews at her best. I didn't figure out who did it. Loved this book.
