    I only borrowed this as an audiobook (just became available) and my daughter and I listened to the whole book on a road trip to Elizabethtown and back again. We were giggling over different sections of the book and cheering at other parts and just thoroughly enjoyed the story.

We were giggling over different sections of the book and cheering at other parts and just thoroughly enjoyed the story. Meg is running the Christmas Program and when a baby is found in the manger, she has to prove that it isn't her brother's child and then find the real mom of the baby as she has been trusted to keep the baby because she and Michael are foster parents for her area. When the real mom is found, it is also found out that her husband is the man that is being hunted by Clay County police for the murder of another man. One that Caerphilly police do not believe he committed and they want to get him to a safe place so that he is not murdered in the jail. This was a really good book and the story just kept you wanting to know more. I was so frustrated at points because I really wanted to read the book (driving not an option), so that I could get through the book a little faster to find out what was going to happen next. This is the newest book by Donna Andrews in the series.

    A truly brilliant outing for Meg and her family and friends. While Meg is rehersing the Trinity Christmas pagnant, someone slips a baby into the manger -- a baby no one has seen before, with a note suggesting she may be the daughter of Meg's brother, Rob. Rob says it is not possible, but his girlfriend doesn't quite believe him...and that's not the only thing unusual about baby Lark.All the characters we know and love, but taking on some surprising roles as the mystery evolves.

An excellent edition to the series, if not quite as laugh aloud funny as Murder with Peacocks, still filled with holiday cheer and some important lessons for one little girl.This story also stands alone, if you want to start the series here. (You'll want to go back, I'm betting).

    Always enjoyable, but there wasn't much of a mystery to this one. The murder in this case happened off screen and in a different county, so it's dealing with the corrupt Clay County that is the main plot (Lark's parentage was quickly sorted out). I have to say that Ekaterina is hilarious, and I loved how the Shiffley woman just casually took out the power lines for Clay County. It's nice to see the twins getting older, though that made me realize just how long I've been reading this series...Als Always enjoyable, but there wasn't much of a mystery to this one.

    The 24th book on this amazing series. This book brings together so many of the beloved wonderful side characters from previous books in a very pro-female adventure mystery. Meg was already leading the way as a super star blacksmith and mystery solver, as well as organizer, mother, daughter, sister, mighty inspiring lady! I love all of Donna Andrews’ books but this one was the best so far! Absolutely filled with girl power and hilarious twists and turns.

    Excellent! This was a perfect Meg Langslow story! All the things I love about Meg, her family and friends, and the community of Caerphilly are on display in this delightful Christmas mystery. This one feels fresh with the murder taking place "off screen," and the aftermath as the focus of the story. I loved the women's shelter pieces of the story - they were woven in throughout the book and gave the town something to rally around. Highly recommend the whole series!

    An abandoned baby case merges with a suspiciously bogus manhunt by Clay County's law department. Considering how blatantly corrupt Clay County has been, Meg and her fellow Caerphilly County residents need to make rescue plans. Various elements that we have become acquainted with through the series come together in a mass event to rock everybody's Christmas.This laugh-out-loud 24th Meg Langslow mystery had me finishing with the word "wonderful" on my lips.

    This is my new favorite book in the Meg Langslow series! It has everything: laughs, kidnapping attempts, rescue missions, conspiracy, government corruption, Christmas cheer, and Meg to the rescue! So good I may sit down and read it again right now.

    A great read!I don't know how she does it, but I feel like I'm in the same room with the wonderful people she has created! I have re-read many of her books, and this is another one for me to enjoy over and over again!

    A perfect LarkOnce again Meg manages to save the day and a babe in a manger. The usual cast of characters were all there, even Spike, which made me happy. Anyone new to the series should start with the very first book, Murder with Peacocks.

    4.5 stars. I was going to save this book until Christmas but I'd been having a crappy day and decided to start it early. I'm so glad I did! I loved our loud, so hard I had to put the book down to wipe away tears. That's why I love Donna Andrews.

    Another well done Christmas story where every unique character in the county got a moment to shine. New characters introduced and hopefully they will reappear in future tales
