“Donna Andrews...scores points for her witty writing and abundance of Yuletide tinsel and tradition.”--The Columbia, SC State
“This novel is a laugh-aloud, fast-reading romp sure to de-stress your holidays.”--Omaha World-Herald
“Six Geese A-Slaying is firmly in the grand tradition of Agatha Christie's Christmas books.”--Toronto Globe and Mail
“Andrews, who has won the Agatha, Anthony, and Barry awards, a Romantic Times award for best first novel, and a Lefty for funniest mystery, keeps her trademark sly humor in rare form in Six Geese A-Slaying. Andrews is a pro at finding the absurd in ordinary situations and a Christmas parade is a natural fit for this Virginia author.”--South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Take a gander at this!
Meg and Michael’s house is serving as the marshaling point for the annual Caerphilly holiday parade. The theme is “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and it features twelve drummers from the school marching band, eleven bagpipers, ten leaping lords costumed in medieval finery from the college drama department, and so on. There are also assorted floats, a live nativity scene on a flatbed truck, the Three Wise Men on Caerphilly zoo camels, and Santa in a bright red horse-drawn sleigh. As organizer, Meg’s job is already hard enough. But when her nephew Eric, wide-eyed and ashen-faced, whispers, “something’s wrong with Santa,” things take a tragic turn. Turns out the local curmudgeon, whose beard and belly made him a natural for the role, has been murdered. Now it’s up to Meg and Chief Burke, who is playing one of the wise men, to tackle a two-fold mission: Solving the murder and saving Christmas…
“Fans will enjoy [this] entry in Andrews’s fine-feathered series.”—Publishers Weekly
