Stork raving mad
In the latest Meg Langslove book by Donna Andrews Meg is eight and a half months pregnant and is coping with a house full of drama students and other assorted guests who have taken refuge in her home when the heating at the local college failed. One of the students has written a play which is in rehearsal when two staff from the college arrive to say that the play will not be allowed to be performed. A short time later one of the staff members is murdered. Meg therefore has to contend with the police investigation, her mother who has come to decorate the nursery and other family members and friends who just appear to add to the chaos. By the end of the book the murder is caught and Meg is off to hospital to give birth to twins. Readers have to wait until the next book in the series in order to discover whether the babies are boys or girls or a mixed pair.
