Praise for The Real Macaw:
A gaggle of praise for Donna Andrews and the Meg Langslow Mystery Series:
“If you long for more fun mysteries, a la Janet Evanovich, you’ll love Donna Andrews’s Meg Langslow series.” —Charlotte Observer
“A long-running series that gets better all the time. A fine blend of academic satire, screwball comedy, and murder.” —Booklist
“With colorful characters, a solid mystery and laugh-out-loud moments. . . readers will have a rollicking good time with the new Meg Langslow mystey.” —RT BookReviews (4 stars)
“Six Geese A-Slaying produces at least one chuckle—and sometimes a guffaw—per page. Joy to the world, indeed.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Andrews’ eighth Meg-centric mystery moves along like the best beach reads.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Deliciously daffy. . . Andrews demonstrates her absolute mastery of the comedic mystery, deftly balancing outrageously funny scenes with well-paced suspense.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Feathers are about to get ruffled.
During an early-morning feeding for her four-month-old twins, Meg Langslow hears an odd noise and goes downstairs to find her living room filled with cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, and a stunningly foul-mouthed macaw. What the—bleep—is going on here?
“As always, Andrews laces this entertaining whodunit with wit, a fine storyline, and characters we’ve come to know and love.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
Turns out that a financially-strapped local animal shelter has repealed its no-kill policy and, in an act of protest led in part by Meg’s own zoologist grandfather, the animals have been stolen and resettled around town. But now the volunteer who helped transport the shelter animals has turned up dead. The animal-rights activist’s untimely death seems very, very wrong… Was it the result of a lover’s quarrel? Or is something—or someone—more sinister at play? And, arguably as important, will Meg ever rid her home of these pesky houseguests and get back to the business of nesting with her newborns? Squawk.
“A hilarious series.”
Donna Andrews does a fantastic job of writing a witty and charming story and weaving a fantastic mystery into the middle of it (and yes I was surprised).
Like all Meg Langslow books this one has a crime that only she can solve. She has a very different family that add a lot of fun to all the books.Published 7 days ago by Karen Thomas

Rescuing all the animals from the now kill shelter sets the scene not only for murder but intrigue. The animals and their fates is not only an amusing subplot, but the vital bit of... Read morePublished 15 days ago by B.A. LeRoy
