Three Weddings...And a Murder

So far Meg Langslow's summer is not going swimmingly. Down in her small Virginia hometown, she's maid of honor at the nuptuals of three loved ones--each of whom has dumped the planning in her capable hands. One bride is set on including a Native American herbal purification ceremony, while another wants live peacocks on the law. Only help from the town's drop-dead gorgeous hunk, disappointingly rumored to be gay, keeps Meg afloat in a sea of dotty relatives and outrageous neighbors.

And, in whirl of summer parties and picnics, Souther hospitality is strained to the limit by an offenseive newcomer who hints at skeletons in the guests' closets. But it seems this lady has offended one too many when she's found dead in suspicious circumstances, followed by a string of accidents--some fatal. Soon, level-headed Meg's to-do list extends from flower arragements and bridal registries to catching a killer--before the next catered event is her own funeral...

Cathy Chapman, October 14, 2006 (view all comments by Cathy Chapman)
Murder, With Peacocks is the first in the thoroughly enjoyable Meg Langslow mystery series. Blacksmith Meg Lanslow returns to her small Virginia home to play maid of honor for not one, but THREE summer weddings. Not one of the weddings is likely to be "normal"-- her mother is one of the brides to be, her business partner wants ALL 600 GUESTS to wear Renaissance attire for the wedding, and her brothers' fiance plans to have peacocks strolling the grounds to add that perfect decorative touch. Add a dash (ok, more like several dollops) of certifiable relatives. And of course, fowl play! To quote a smidgen of a review from Kirkus: "half Jane Austen, half battery acid."
