"A new side-splitting Meg Langslow mystery from award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of Gone Gull. Meg Langslow is at Trinity Episcopal locking up after an event and checking on the toucan Meg's friend Rev. Robyn Smith is fostering in her office. After hearing a hammering in the columbarium (the small building where cremated remains are held), Meg finds an elderly parishioner lying dead on the floor of the crypt. Several niches have been chiseled open; several urns knocked out; and amid the spilled ashes is a gold ring with a huge red stone. The curmudgeonly victim had become disgruntled with the church and ranted all over town about taking back his wife's ashes. Did someone who had it in for him follow him to the columbarium? Or was the motive grave robbery? Or did he see someone breaking in and investigate? Why was the ruby left behind? While the Chief Burke investigates the murder, Robyn recruits Meg to contact the families of the people whose ashes were disturbed. During this task, Meg learns many secrets about Caerphilly's history--and finds that the toucan may play a role in unmasking the killer. Clues and events indicate that a thief broke into the church to steal the toucan the night of the murder, so Meg decides to set a trap for the would-be toucan thief--who might also be the killer. Toucan Keep a Secret is the twenty-third book in New York Times bestselling author Donna Andrews' hilarious Mag Langslow mystery series"--… (lisätietoja)

The Story:

This was my first read with Ms. Andrews but it won’t be my last. Though it is a bit shocking to jump right into number 23 in a series I didn’t feel that it was difficult to jump right in. The mystery was intriguing and the small town seems charming. I really enjoyed it.

I liked all the literary references but the mystery wasn't really all that hard to solve. And some things really didn't fit. ( )

Read for first time June 2020. Having owned a bird and dealt with the mess, I was taken on a trip down memory lane by the toucan and its messy eating habits. As a non-religious person, it is always interesting to read about how the other half lives, especially when the book makes it appealing rather than a haven for crazy people. I love Ragnar and his house. Michael still needs a more prominent role in a story. Spike is really getting old...even though she still has him behaving as young as ever...I worry about the embodiment of evil. ( )

This is yet another charming addition to the Meg Langslow Mystery series.

The book opens with Meg on rotation to close up the church for the night when she hears a banging out by the columbarium. Our fearless Meg investigates yet has enough sense to call 911 and keep dispatcher Debbie Ann on the line while she checks on the goings-on. Of course, what does she find but a freshly dead parishioner among the disturbed ash niches of other long since passed parishioners as well as a single ruby ring.

Chief Burke is soon on scene to take over the murder investigation. Reverend Robyn asks Meg to seek out the surviving loved ones of the parishioners whose resting places were disturbed and in some cases destroyed. In her sensitivity to the situation, Robyn advises that the church will need to re-dedicate the cremains in the columbarium and the loved ones may wish to hold special services, take the cremains elsewhere or just allow the church to proceed as they would. Meg is on it and can't resist trying to solve the mystery as she makes her house calls.

This 23rd book of the series focuses mostly on Meg's derring-do and although the other usual charming characters appear in the story and we get to visit with them from time to time throughout, there is not lots of action involving them in this particular story. I for one love the family interaction described in previous books and rather missed it in this one. Regardless, it is still an entertaining cozy mystery which is refreshing in its light banter and charming wit. Now on to Meg's next adventure, "Lark! The Herald Angel Sings"! ( )

I was fortunate enough to win TOUCAN KEEP A SECRET by Donna Andrews from Laurie Ham at Kings River Life Magazine (http://KingsRiverLife.com). Thanks, Laurie.

To prepare for sleep, I re-read light hearted books (can't be kept awake by the plot). Meg Langslow series books are in rotation for my bedtime reading.

TOUCAN KEEP A SECRET is Meg Langslow #23. The church has an underground crypt from which loud noises emanate, then a body is discovered. I was much too interested in what would happen next to be willing to sleep.

Meg Langslow's family displays the best characteristics of amateur (amateuse?) mystery fiction. Some characters are certifiably nuts, others endearing, and some a mixture; I'm sure being part of such a family would be truly enervating, but for armchair travellers, it's quite entertaining. And it's satisfying to watch the development of these personalities.

Several spots have laugh-out-loud moments.

If you've never read any Meg Langslow books by Donna Andrews, start with #1. My librarian couldn't get interested in the minutiae of weddings, so I've recommended she move to #2. These books are just too amusing to pass up. ( )
