Book 3 of the Port Danby Cozy Mystery Series
The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers boughs of holly and barrels of laughs with Meg's latest adventure in her award-winning, New York Times bestselling series. A few nights before Christmas, Meg is awakened when volunteer fireman Michael is summoned to the New Life Baptist Church, where someone has rigged a cage full of skunks in the choir loft. The lengthy process of de-skunking the church requires its annual pre-Christmas concert to relocate to Trinity Episcopal, where Mother insists the show must go on, despite the budget-related protests of Mr. Vess, an elderly vestryman. Meanwhile, when Meg helps her grandfather take the skunks to the zoo, they discover that his boa has been stolen - only to turn up later during the concert, slithering out from the ribbon-bedecked evergreens. The next morning is Sunday, and the congregation of St. Byblig's, the local Catholic church, arrive to find it completely filled with several hundred ducks.
It's clear that some serious holiday pranksters are on the loose, and Meg is determined to find them. But before she can, a fire breaks out at Trinity, and Mr. Vess is discovered dead. Who would have murdered such a harmless - if slightly cranky - old man? Who has the time during the busy holiday season to herd all of these animals into the town's churches? And will Meg ever be able to finish all of her shopping, wrapping, cooking, caroling, and decorating in time for Christmas Eve? A Yuletide treasure for the ages, Duck the Halls is guaranteed to put the "ho ho hos" into readers' holidays.
Now with an excerpt from Donna Andrews' next Meg Langslow holiday mystery How the Finch Stole Christmas!, available in October 2017.
Sunni Taylor is finally going to meet Lola Button, the quirky antique dealer who sold her some rather unusual old photos of Cider Ridge Inn. When Lola arrives with her best friend, Lacey Pinkerton, Sunni and Lacey find they have a lot in common.
When Sunni's friend, Raine, is invited to attend a Wiccan ceremony celebrating the Autumnal Equinox, the four women decide it would be fun and find themselves traipsing through the forest to attend the Mabon Apple Harvest Rite. Amidst the incense and incantations, a shocking discovery is made. A dead body. Sunni and her new sleuthing partner, Lacey, immediately jump into action. The two women are ready to pool their skills and find the killer.
