October 2nd's Waiting on Wednesday

Hi and welcome to this week's Waiting on Wednesday.  Today's book (at least here) is Duck the Halls by Donna Andrews.



This is a Christmas themed book in the long running Meg Langslow series.  I think we're on book 15 or so.  But don't worry, the books pretty much stand on their own.

The series is a comedic mystery series.  Yes, there is a murder that Meg solves, but the people, including her own family, that she deals with are always funny.  I laugh as I enjoy the ride.

Donna's books are automatic buys and usually near the front of my To Be Read Mountain Range when I get them.  I'll wait on this one until December instead of as soon as I get it after the October 22nd release date, so I'm sure to be in the Christmas mood.

This is the second Christmas mystery in the series, and the first, Six Geese a Slaying, was a hoot.  This will be the first one since Meg's twins were born, and I bet they will add a fun layer to the story.  For them alone, I can't wait to read this one.

  1. Sounds interesting but the fact that this is book 15 kind of puts me off. I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out though.

    1. You really can read the books out of order. They stand on their own quite well.

      But they are also all worth reading.
