Usually, I just go with my current read, but this week, I've finished two books (one humorous mystery and one middle grade book) and am reading a third (another middle grade book). So I did give it a little thought. Still, I decided to go with the humorous mystery, The Good, the Bad, and the Emus by Donna Andrews.
This is the latest in the long running Meg Langslow mysteries with feature Meg and her wacky collection of family and friends. This time, they are going on an emu hunt and learning more about a long lost branch of the family tree.
And it all starts with this:
"Be careful!" I said, looking up from the boxwood hedge I was pruning. "We don't want another trip to the emergency room. We've used up our family quota for the week."
Jumping ahead of page 55 (Page 56 only has a couple of lines on it.), we find:
I shut my eyes for a moment. Apparently, Grandfather was also going to film the emu roundup for another of his popular Animals in Peril documentaries.
Want to learn more? I finished this one early enough in the week that my review is already posted.
