Peacocks, Bridezillas and a Little Bit of Homicide,
This review is from: Murder with Peacocks (Meg Langslow Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
I found this light, funny novel to be such a treat. Meg is helping three brides put together their weddings (and, much like many Maids of Honor, getting no appreciation whatsoever for doing so), when things start to go horribly wrong in her sleepy little Southern town. As she, her father and her new friend Michael (delightful characters in their own right) get closer to answers regarding a mysterious death, they also become targets.
Laugh-out-loud funny in the style of Janet Evanovich, Mary Kay Andrews and Jane Heller, with a bit of romance, a wacky family and a nifty little mystery, this story kept me turning the pages and, I am delighted to say, guessing as to the identity of the murderer. That's a rarity, and a pleasant surprise.
I only reduced it from five stars to four because of some repetition in the writing style. A little tighter editing would have been welcome, and I feel confident that the style will get smoother as Donna Andrews gains experience at her craft.
