Duck the Halls a Meg Langslow Mystery by Donna Andrews

ImageMeg and company are back in a touching holiday story this year.  Michael is busy rehearsing his one man version of A Christmas Carol, when he and Rob are not fulfilling their new civic duties, the twins are hoping for hamsters or gerbils from Santa, and someone is playing pranks on the local churches.  As usual Meg ends up in the thick of things, in this case juggling the many holiday events that can be held at a shrinking number of venues among other duties.  All of the usual suspects we have come to love are here, Chief Burke and his wife Minerva are part of the fun as are Meg’s mother in law and the usual town residents we are so fond of.   As with all of Meg’s adventures I enjoyed this visit back to her town as much as all the others and the town and anyone who reads along with be left with a warm happy holiday feeling.  I found the twins especially funny and touching but that may be because they remind me of my son.  That said this is a good holiday read for those who like mysteries or books about towns.  A great addition to the series.  This one went on sale in October so if you are looking for a holiday read it should be readily available.

    Would you recommend this series? I’ve only recently fallen in love with this type of book and Goodreads keeps recommending Donna Andrews to me!

    I really like them, the characters are quirky and loveable and there are usually surprises. I also really liked the Torie O’Shea series by Rhett MacPherson which has ended. If you try one please let me know what you think.
