    One thought on “Stork Raving Mad”

    1. At any given time you can find me working on two to three lengthy cozy mystery series while trying out books in other smaller series or trying out books in new genres The Meg Langslow series is one of the longer series I am currently working my way through, and boy is it a good series Donna Andrews has a talent for weaving humor into her mysteries I don t think there s been a book in this series yet that hasn t made me laugh out loud, or at least chuckle to myself Meg has an enormous family that [...]

    2. I enjoy this series Meg s family is totally insane Meg s husband is a professor of drama at the local college, her father an orphan is always doing some activity or other and trying to get involved in mysteries he loves mysteries Her brother went to law school, but invented a game about lawyers to play on computer and is now the head of a software company At the moment, Meg herself is huge with twins due any minute The heat has gone off at the college and they are housing many of the drama stude [...]

    3. I love this series It makes me laugh, I rarely know who the killer is and the trouble that happens to Meg and Michael is just craziness but believable craziness Add her parent s and brother and interesting cousin to the mix of house guests, the fact that Meg is 9 months along with twins and a nasty person is murdered in their library and not one person is sad about it, you have a hilarious and fun read.

    4. Meg and Michael are homebound on a dreary winter s afternoon, marooned in their huge Victorian home Alas, alack, poor things, right Ha They have dozens of houseguests Students from Caerphilly College, where Michael teaches drama, slung out into the cold by the College s heating system going kerflooie in the coldest winter anyone can remember.Add to the madness Meg s mom on a kamikaze decorating binge for the arrival of Meg s twins genders unknown and referred to by cute names throughout like Cas [...]

    5. What a crazy life Meg leads The plot of this one is as unbelievable as the rest of hers The entire book takes place within a twelve hour period of time, and the entire book is set at Meg and Michael s house and outbuildings This time the heat has gone out at the college and they have literally about 30 extra people living in their house, including a group in the basement that have been there for weeks without Meg knowing about it I would have thought she would have noticed when she did laundry A [...]

    6. Stork Raving Mad by Donna Andrews, book 12 in the Meg Langslow series It s been awhile since I ve caught up on this series, but I am oh so glad I have A fun, quick, entertaining mystery or cozy mystery as I recently learned , and it was just as funny quirky as I remember the previous novels being, and it was so easy to slip back into the town of Caerphilly, VA This particular novel follows 8 1 2 months pregnant Meg, a blacksmith and amateur sleuth in a small Virginia college town When a professo [...]

    7. The furnace used to heat the college dorms is broken so the entire town of Caerphilly, VA has opened their homes to college students Meg and Michael have students and professors living in every room of their home except their bedroom, the bathrooms, the closets, the nursery, and the kitchen A pregnant Meg, who is due at anytime, finds Dr Jean Wright, one of the most hated professors on campus, dead in the library Meg, already uncomfortable due to the pregnancy, finds herself unwillingly and invo [...]

    8. A fun and quick reading addition to this series even all the action and there s plenty takes place in a period of less than 12 hours at the home of our delightful heroine Meg and her dream husband Michael Meg is in her last days of pregnancy with twins and this plays a big part in the narration As usual their home is filled with a LARGE number of characters family, guests, college students and plenty of them are eccentric to say the least The plot hinges around skulduggery and infighting at the [...]

    9. I LOVE Donna Andrews and her sense of humor This one is a little different in that it only covers one day, from morning until night The murder and mystery were good I usually figure out whodunit much sooner It was funny how the babies were referred to by every duo s name you could think of except I think she left out Frick and Frack The usual characters are around, and added to by many students and some faculty from the college.Read in 2 days, and can t wait for the next installment

    10. Meg Langslow super amateur sleuth is pregnant with twins Donna Andrews once again introduces us to an eccentric and funny cast of characters When a faculty member of her husband Michael s college is found murdered at their house, it is going to be a time full of mayhem and mystery leading up to the delivery date Find out how Meg, along with her madcap family and law enforcement solve this crime in time for another chapter in Meg and Michael s marriage to begin.

    11. It was funny, I always enjoy Andrews books for their humor than for the mystery The mystery angle felt lacking this time though The essential plot twists were obvious and described so early that only having the main character have pregnancy brain was she able to miss them.I will keep reading this series because I find it hysterical, but this wasn t one of the better ones.

    12. After all of this blabbing on and on about twin nicknames and duos and not knowing the gender of their babies, all I wanted to know by the end was boy or girl And I still don t know Maybe I m not in the right mood to read this book but I found it difficult to keep reading and wanted to skip ahead to the end.

    13. What s with these Meg Langslow books I enjoy reading them but why There s not much suspense, the humor is light, most characters are rather interchangeable The plot is almost non existent The villain at the end is usually an arbitrary pick Still I like them and will read another soon.

    14. Happiness is a new Donna Andrews book I especially enjoyed seeing a beloved character, Meg Lanslow, experience the end of a pregnancy The compressed timeline was also interesting, it normally takes her than 12 hours to solve a murder.

    15. Have I mentioned before how much I love these Meg books This time we find Meg 8 1 2 months pregnant with twins Of course, she and Michael aren t revealing the sex not sure if they know and aren t telling, or if they don t know either I think they don t know So for the entire book they keep referring to the babies as famous duos Bonnie and Clyde, Hansel and Gretel, Chip and Dale, Tom and Jerry, etc The book finds us at the beginning of December and the heater at the college has broken so they ve [...]

    16. Meg is back and this time she s sleuthing for three To be fair, even the police chief seems to realize her sleuthing is unintentional this time Nearly full term and carrying twins, Meg s house is packed to the rafters with misplaced drama students camping out in her rooms due to a broken boiler on the university campus The Inn is at full capacity and every local with room to spare and a heart that bleeds has opened their doors likewise.One student, Ramon Soto, is holding rehearsals in Meg s barn [...]

    17. It took me a while to get around to reading this book, even though I owned a copy, perhaps because I owned it But I knew I d like it The series started abysmally for me I think I rated Murder with Peacocks 1 star , but after that it has never failed to make me laugh This one was no exception There s an obvious connection in the plot that the characters do not make which the mystery hinges on, which bugged me a little bit Excusable in Meg s case because she s carrying twins, but what about the ot [...]

    18. Meg Langslow is about to give birth to twins She is huge and uncomfortable To add to her discomfort, the local college is having a heating crisis and Meg s drama professor husband has opened their large home to several dozen freezing drama students But, as this is a cozy mystery, of course, someone ends up dead A very unlikable professor of English is making a stink over a play a doctoral student is planning When said professor is found poisoned and bashed in the head there is no shortage of sus [...]

    19. Pity poor Meg who is expecting twins at any moment while her house and outbuildings have been taken over by a mob of drama students because the heating system at the college is on the fritz I ll admit I didn t really care who killed the nasty English professor, but that s OK These books are much about the settings and crazy people running around driving Meg to distraction This time the crazies aren t so much family members as students and faculty A fun addition was the way Meg referred to the u [...]

    20. Meg is expecting twins immediately, so it s a good thing cousin Rose Noire is there to deal with the multitude of students staying in her home because the college housing has a broken heating system An international guest has arrived for the production of his play only to learn that college officials want to shut down the production When one of the officials is found dead The investigation begins.

    21. I enjoy this madcap and crazy series that I read just for the fun of it It s nice to have light, escapist reads with wacky characters for a change of pace Meg is expecting twins, feeling large and unwieldy, hosting lots of drama students in their home while the dorms are out of commission, and solving a murder that s taken place in her library.

    22. I keep wondering when these mysteries will begin to pall on me, but not yet Still a fun read, so on to the next one in the series.

    23. All the way through I felt sorry for the Spanish guest living in this crazy environment Half the department seems to have moved in as Meg approaches her due date I enjoyed the resolution after having so many good suspects and I was still fooled Great wild goose chase Plus again with the hilarious family

    24. Stork Raving Mad Minotaur 2010 finds Meg, heavily pregnant with twins, and her husband Michael hosting a swarm of Caerphilly College students who are temporarily homeless because of a failure of the college heating system One of the resident students is Ramon Soto, a student of Michael s consumed with planning a performance of his dissertation topic, a play by Ignacio Mendoza, a minor Spanish playwright Unfortunately Mendoza is closer to the Benny Hill than the Shakespeare of Spain, and Dr Jean [...]

    25. Meg is eight and a half months pregnant with twins when Michael asks if she wouldn t mind another houseguest One of his doctoral students is directing his new translation of a play by a minor Spanish playwright, and the playwright has agreed to come to town for the production.Senor Mendoza turns out to be a drinker, a smoker, and an inveterate partygoer Before long, Meg s kitchen is filled with the smells of Spanish food and the voices of all the wilder souls in both the drama and Spanish depart [...]

    26. I m not sure why I keep reading and admittedly kind of enjoying the books in this series They have all of the elements that normally irritate me no end e.g a female protagonist who has no backbone, says yes to everything and everyone when, even when she wants to say no then complains that she has to do what she agreed to do the protagonist grumbles about a whole lot of other things too there are antics than plot the protagonist stumbles across, rather than solves, the mystery she gets herself i [...]

    27. Light reading guaranteed as always Its mostly one day in the life of heavily pregnant Meg, who meets bus loads of people who all have strangely gathered under her roof and inhabit all the nooks and crannies She is having twins and finds it hard to fit through doors and is having trouble getting to second floors I found it tiny bit weird that although murder takes place in her home she doesn t really give it a second thought, i would ve demanded moving house, with images of dark nights and doors [...]
