Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

No Nest for the Wicket (Meg Langslow Mystery #7)

No Nest for the Wicket - Donna Andrews

Donna Andrews' Meg Langslow series is one of my all time favourites and a series I re-read with regularity.

 

No Nest for the Wicket is one of the best (extreme croquet - really!), as I really enjoy the ones where Meg's wacky family plays their part (and boy they are the best sort of whack-jobs!). I've read no author who can so perfectly write such three-dimensional characters - even the most out there of the relatives seems believable (ok, almost believable).

 

I think the plot was solid, with lots of red herrings and the murderer ultimately not easy to guess.

 

I hope Ms. Andrews finds many, many more plots within her as I'll be devastated when this series ends. (This review reflects the third time I've read this book.)
