Of course, Mother insists that Meg pitch in with the organization, and she finds herself surrounded by flamboyant personalities with massive egos clashing and feeling their professional reputations are at stake. Then the rooms start to be sabotaged, and an unfortunate designer turns up deadmaking Mother a prime suspect. Can Meg catch the real killer in time to save Mother the indignity of arrest?

I just had a migraine kick in very fast after school, so I‘m waiting for my medicine to kick in enough for me to get up, fill the bath tub and finish this book! Not wild about my 2nd headache this week, but really looking forward to watching the final pieces fall into place and seeing if my suspicions pan out.
My bulbs are going crazy today (the must know we have snow coming tomorrow 😵) and I came home to find the irises had doubled!

I swear, I cannot just be reading one book at a time. I needed something easy and fun for our trip to Starved Rock last week, so I grabbed a #cozymystery from the library. It has been a while since I‘ve read a Meg Langslow mystery, and I‘m enjoying jumping back in. Donna Andrews is great at both the small town of recurring characters and fun gimmicks. Looking forward to reading it until Emma tells me it‘s time for dinner- she is very punctual.

Saturday night book. And I don't care that it's May. After the week I've had, I need some laughter and I know Donna Andrews will deliver - it's just the next book in the series that I haven't read happens to be a Christmas-themed book!
