This week, I'm featuring Murder Most Fowl by Donna Andrews.
This is the latest in her long running and always entertaining Meg Langslow series. It's long been a favorite of mine, and I know I've used it for these posts before, but the quotes are always so fun to use as teasers.
For example, here's how the book begins. Yes, it's a long quote, but it is worth it.
I kept my eyes firmly closed and focused on breathing in and out in the slow, deliberate way that was supposed to make you feel better when you were stressed. One...two...
"Mom," Jamie repeated. "I know when you're doing your yoga breathing we're not supposed to interrupt you unless there's actual bleeding involved."
"Or open flames," his twin brother, Josh, added.
"But I kind of think this might qualify," Jamie went on.
See? Doesn't that grab your attention? Now, let's jump to page 56, where I've picked a much shorter quote:
"That's it," I said aloud. "One seriously creepy dagger coming up."
That's all I've got for this post this week. I'll be reviewing this book next Thursday.
As always, have a great weekend.
