3.0 out of 5 stars So-So, February 25, 2004

This review is from: We'll Always Have Parrots (Hardcover)
I think the Meg Langslow mysteries are charming, funny, and witty and I very much looked forward this installment. I did not find We'll Always Have Parrots up to that standard. Like the other characters in the book, I did not lament that the victim was murdered and about halfway through the book I decided that I no longer cared who murdered her. I went ahead and finished it until the end but it took longer than previous Donna Andrews' books. For some reason I found the almost exclusive use of calling the main character the QB annoying and after a while I just wanted all the parrots and monkeys to fade into the background. I missed Michael and Meg's father playing more prominent roles. With Michael playing such a minor role and he being the reason behind Meg's desire to solve the mystery, I just felt it could have been better. Every series has their less than best book. We'll Always Have Parrots was that one for me but I look forward to the next one in hopes that it will be as enjoyable as the first three were.
