Gone Gull: A Meg Langslow Mystery by Donna Andrews
Gone Gull is the newest book in the Meg Langslow series. This time, Meg and her family have headed up to Biscuit Mountain to help her grandmother, Cordelia, with her summer program. Meg is teaching a blacksmith class, and the prior week had been wrought with pranks. As they head into the second week, Meg and Cordelia try to make sure the prankster has left. However, now the pranks have been upgraded to murder! When a fellow artist is found stabbed to death in his studio, we see Chief Heedles again visiting a crime scene. Meg is determined to do what she can to stop the vandal and the murderer! As usual, her curmudgeonly grand father gets involved when the murder victim also holds the secret to finding a rare breed of gulls previously thought extinct. After another murder victim pops up, there is a direct threat to her family as well. Meg steps up her game with the help of her beloved family members.
What I love about these mysteries (other than Meg herself) is Meg's family! My only complaint is that as her twins get older, we see less interaction between Meg and Michael. But as usual, Ms. Andrews has written a very entertaining mystery!
I received a digital ARC from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
