Shelley's Reviews

Happy Saturday! Today's review is Lord of the Wings( A Meg Langslow Mystery) by Donna Andrews Released on August 4,2015. Add this to your Halloween reading. You won't be disappointed.

Series: Meg Langslow Mysteries (Book 19)
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Minotaur Books; First Edition edition (August 4, 2015)
Language: English

A new side-splitting Meg Langslow mystery from award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Good, The Bad, and The Emus.

The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers another winner in the acclaimed avian-themed series that mystery readers have come to love. The eighteenth book in her New York Times best-selling series continues to surprise and delight in this next knee-slapping adventure featuring Meg Langslow and all the eccentric characters that make up her world.

It's another holiday and Mayor Randall Shiffley has turned Caerphilly, Virginia into Spooky City, USA. The residents are covering every window with cobwebs and roaming the streets in costume to entertain the tourists, and Meg's grandfather is opening a new "Creatures of the Night" exhibit in the zoo. When a real body at the zoo and a suspicious fire at the Haunted House threaten to mar the town's creepy fun, it's up to Meg Langslow to save Halloween.

Like Meg Langslow, the blacksmith heroine of her series, Donna Andrews was born and raised in Yorktown, Virginia. She introduced Meg to readers in her Malice Domestic Contest-winning first mystery, Murder with Peacocks, and readers are still laughing. This novel swept up the Agatha, Anthony, Barry, and a Romantic Times award for best first novel, and a Lefty for funniest mystery.

With Lord of the Wings, readers can look forward to another zany Meg Langslow mystery--this one filled with Halloween spirit and suspense.

Donna Andrews gets you into the Halloween Spirit with this laugh out loud funny and witty read. Meg gets herself into yet another chaotic situation. A Dead body and a fire will keep her on the move trying to find out who the killer is before the festivities begin and the killer strikes again. This hair raising page turner will have you looking around every corner. You will be laughing into the night as each page keeps you so involved in the story. This was a great read and makes for a night of fantastic reading.

  1. I am currently reading this book and so far I love it. :-)

  2. Still working my way through the series but I am looking reading Lord of the Wings. These books provide a wonderful balance to real life and to too intense novels.
