The Real Macaw

Donna Andrews

*Winner of the Lefty Award for Best Humorous Mystery Novel*

During an early-morning feeding for her four-month-old twins, Meg Langslow hears an odd noise and goes downstairs to find her living room filled with cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, and a stunningly foul-mouthed macaw. What the―bleep―is going on here?

Turns out that a financially-strapped local animal shelter has repealed its no-kill policy and, in an act of protest led in part by Meg's own zoologist grandfather, the animals have been stolen and resettled around town. But now the volunteer who helped transport the shelter animals has turned up dead. The animal-rights activist's untimely death seems very, very wrong… Was it the result of a lover's quarrel? Or is something―or someone―more sinister at play? And, arguably as important, will Meg ever rid her home of these pesky houseguests and get back to the business of nesting with her newborns? Squawk.

In the middle of a 2AM feeding with her four month old twins, Meg hears noises from downstairs. Investigating, she finds her grandfather, father, brother, and a bunch of animals. Seems the trio have robbed the local animal shelter and rescued the dogs, cats, hamsters, and one macaw that were set to be killed in order for the county to save money.

The trio had planned to meet up with Parker Blair and use the truck from his furniture business to take the animals to pre-arranged safe places in neighboring counties, but the plan hit a snag when Parker never showed up. Turns out that this was because Parker has been murdered. Was this because of his overactive love life, his involvement in the robbery, or something even more sinister?

If I had one complaint about this book, it was be the fact that I didn't find it that funny. I can remember back in the heyday of the series when I would literally be laughing out loud at the antics of the characters. Now, they've become so familiar that I find them at most amusing.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy this book. I love the characters, and it's always nice to spend time with them. While the plot started out feeling like a retread of an earlier book in the series, it soon took off into some unexpected directions that kept me very interested in the story. I enjoyed every page.

This book will appeal to Donna's many fans. While it may not be the best book in the series, it is still a very fun read.
What a joy to have a new Meg Langslow adventure to make me forget about the oppressive summertime heat. This latest in the series is a winner, with at least one smile per page, and often several belly laughs.

Sleep-deprived Meg, now the mother of four-month-old twins, has a lot on her plate besides babies: a 5-year-old house guest whose mom is overseas with the army, a houseful (and then a barn-full) of stray animals (including the foul-mouthed macaw of the title), shenanigans of corrupt local politicians, helping pack up and move the county offices (including the public library) because their buildings are set to be repossessed, a sinister threat that her property and several nearby farms (including her parents') will be taken from them by eminent domain and turned into a golf course -- and, of course, murder.

Was the dead man killed because of his well-known philandering, his work with animal rescues (including the caper with Meg's grandfather, dad, and brother that landed all those pets at Meg's house), or possibly the research he was doing into a political scandal involving the mayor?

Before Meg can come up with the answer, her grandfather is attacked and ends up in the hospital, so she redoubles her efforts to find the killer before she has two murders on her hands.

Needless to say, Meg does figure out whodunnit. But fans of this series will be eagerly waiting for the next installment to find out what happens about the town's political mess, which isn't resolved.

This series is one of the few that I buy in hardcover anymore. "The Real Macaw" is definitely worth it! An entertaining and amusing read.
I pre-ordered this book to have it downloaded to my Kindle on the day it was released. (gotta love it!) And I anxiously awaited its arrival. I was not disappointed. I think this may be Ms. Andrews best one yet. I have enjoyed this series immensely. Ms. Andrews is a really good writer and just keeps getting better. One of my favorite aspects of this series is that the main characters and some of the supporting cast have been developed over the series. With each book, I've discovered a new dimension to one or more characters. This keeps the story fresh and adds continuity throughout the series.

In this book, Ms. Andrews introduces the reader to Meg's and Michael's (her husband) new life as the parents of twins. Meg's parents and wacky extended family are back but in this book they play a more minor role than in previous books. This book focuses more on the Caerphilly community and local political issues. I had a hard time putting this one down. You will too! It's a great summer escape with many laugh-out-loud moments. The only problem now is that I have to wait for the next one!
I have been a fan of this series from the first book "Murder With Peacocks" (one of my all time favorite books.) Ms. Andrews latest book "The Real Macaw" is a welcome installment in the series. Meg has had the twins and she and Michael are learning to cope with parenthood times two when craziness once again descends upon the group. Meg's contribution to the action is a little more subdued in this book (though more than the last when she was about to have the twins.) She is tethered a bit more to home and so can't be around and about as much, so she is a bit more of an observer. I am hoping that in future books, Meg is back to her blacksmithing, something we haven't heard about in the last few books.

In this book, we get to visit with a number of old friends and get an interesting set up for future books. I'm looking forward to the next book already - wondering who did what and where will it all go forward?

I recommend the book but more importantly, the entire series.
The twins have arrived and for some vague reason Timmy, the kid from the missing mom book a while ago, are all at the house. Alas, that isn't crazy enough her grandfather and father have rescued an entire animal shelter and left the contents in the living room of course. The man with the truck was murdered and motives abound. I kind of suspected the killer, but not the reason. Entertaining as always.
Meg's home is overrun with mammals, chordates, birds, reptiles and, of course uninvited family and other peoples begins the book in a whirl.. The mayor of Caerphilly has bankrupted the town, resulting in an expected repossession of all of the government buildings. How this happened, and how it will affect the people in the town as well as the college community is enlightening. Now the existence of Caerphilly, Michael's job and livelihood, and Meg's home is threatened.
