Murder With Puffins by Donna Andrews is the second book in the “Meg Langslow” mystery series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Minotaur, September 2008 from “A Murder Hatched” compilation of the second two books in the series. Originally published in June 2001.
A romantic getaway was what Meg Langslow had in mind when she and her boyfriend planned a trip to the tiny island of Monhegan off the coast of Maine. They would spend their days hiking the trails and their evenings by the fire. But in this remote place, birds of a feather flock together and Meg quickly learns that this vacation isn’t going to go as planned. Although the puffins have already flown south for the winter, the island still harbors a flock of birdwatchers-and Meg’s family…Discovering her parents, her brother, her aunt, and a nosey neighbor on the island is Meg’s first surprise. Her second one comes when a body is found and her father is accused of murder. Now instead of quiet walks by the water, Meg finds herself scouring the island for clues. In the process, she uncovers more than she bargained for. Meg’s only hope for finding the killer now rests on a wing and a prayer.
Another fun story with the Langslows. My rating: 3.5 stars
