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.)
