Dashing Through the Snowbirds

Donna Andrew's is back with another charming holiday installment of the delightful Meg Langslow mysteries!

Dashing Through the Snowbirds by Donna Andrews

This is book 32 in the Meg Langslow mysteries, and it's easy to see why this series has been so beloved and bestselling for so long. Andrews always writes a reliably good whodunnit! And it feels like a visit with old friends, even if you haven't read the whole series.

Meg is a decorative blacksmith living in a small community with her zany extended family. She and her husband open their home to a group of programmers from Canada who work for her brother's software company after their inconsiderate boss has them working on a rush project that might make them miss Christmas with their families. When he is murdered, there is no shortage of suspects as info about the company comes out.

Andrews writes with warmth and humor, and this, one of the series' holiday-themed books, is full of festive holiday spirit! Meg is a likable sleuth with a sense of humor, so her observations are often very funny. The side characters are charming and quirky, and there is always a lot going on, but Andrews weaves the threads together in a well-structured plot with a satisfying mystery to solve. And this one kept me guessing. This works well as a stand-alone and is delightful, so if you're looking for a holiday cozy to cuddle up with, you'll want to add this one to your tbr!

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the opportunity to review this ARC. I loved it!

My steep was Cozy Comfort Tea from Simpson Vail Teas. It's a black tea with organic cinnamon pieces, orange blossoms, and Black Walnut flavor. One of my favorite Fall through Winter teas.

SYNOPSIS: Dashing Through the Snowbirds is the next merry installment of Donna Andrews's New York Times bestselling Meg Langslow mystery series.

Christmas in Caerphilly is wonderful! Unless you're a Canadian whose inconsiderate boss is forcing you to spend the holiday there, far from family and friends, with only a slim chance of a white Christmas. Meg already has her hands full, trying to make the season festive for the dozen programmers who are staying with her and Michael while working on a rush project with her brother's software company. At least it's an interesting project, since the Canadian company is doing forensic genealogy and DNA analysis.

When the inconsiderate boss is found murdered, there are too many suspects. Even before their Christmas in exile, his own employees had plenty of motives, and the growing number of people suing the company for faulty DNA analysis and invasion of their genetic privacy include at least one notorious murderer. Can Meg crack the case in time to keep the Yuletide bright?
