Mini Review: Six Geese A-Slaying

Yep only two more to go, plus the wrap up. And one of them is the Christmas mystery Six Geese A-Slaying by Donna Andrews.

Meg has been tapped to run the town's annual Christmas, er Holiday, parade. It's only hours before everything is supposed to start, and Meg has her hands full keeping peace between the humans, animals, and drummers and pippers.

The last things she needs to be dealing with is town grouch Ralph Doleson. In a case of miscasting, he isn't playing Scrooge but Santa. At least he would be is someone hadn't killed him with a stake of holly through the heart. Now Meg has to get the parade together and sniff around for clues.

Let's get the bad out of the way first, the plot was a tad weak and I had it figured out pretty early on.

Okay, now the rest. The characters were their normal charming selves. And the first half was hilarous with several great laugh out loud moments. The second half the plot became more important, but it had some good laughs as well.
