Dashing Through the Snowbirds by Donna Andrews ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

It's Christmastime in Caerphilly! It is busier than usual for Meg as she is hosting a dozen Canadian computer programmers who are working on a project with her brother's company.  When the boss of the Canadian company is found murdered there is no shortage of suspects as he wasn't well-liked by anyone. But the motive may be more than just a disgruntled employee working through the holidays. Can Meg solve the murder and save Christmas for everyone?

audio, ebook, print (304 pages); cozy mystery

I have to admit I picked this book because of the cover. I thought it would be a wild caper with its cute cover. I didn't realize Dashing Through the Snowbirds was book 32 in Donna Andrews's Meg Langslow series. I haven't read any books in this series but I often pick up cozy mystery series in the middle so I was still looking forward to reading it.

It is a cute story and the characters are easy to like. I think fans of the series will really enjoy this installment. As a new reader though I was a little confused and it took a while to figure out who everyone was. At one point I even wondered if it was a paranormal cozy because Mutant Wizards is the name of Meg's brother's company (I didn't realize it was the company's name at first). 

Once I got into the story though I did enjoy it and I will probably look for more books in this series when I'm needing a new cozy mystery to read.

If you enjoy fun Christmas stories but don't really care for rom-coms then Christmas cozies are the way to go. Grab yourself a hot cocoa, a couple of sugar cookies, and this book for a relaxing winter day of reading.
