Donna Andrews' Meg Langlow series is always entertaining; between her wacky family, new husband, chasing felons and animals alike, and renovating their newly purchased old home, the stories are among the best of cozies in the business. I adore these books! This one did not disappoint. Picture boas (not the feathered kind) in your brand new hot tub because your father is caring for them and you'll get the idea. To add to all the normal wackiness, Meg uncertainly takes on a toddler for what she believes to be a few hours, when an old friend shows up at her door needing a baby-sitter for a little while... and doesn’t return. When her friend’s ex-husband turns up dead, the hunt is on, mostly with the little one in tow, to find her friend.
