Publisher's Summary

As the holidays draw near in Caerphilly, Mother volunteers to take part in a big Christmas-themed decorator show house - each room of a temporarily untenanted house is decorated to the hilt by a different decorator for the public to tour. Of course, Mother insists that Meg pitch in with the organization, and she finds herself surrounded by flamboyant personalities with massive egos clashing and feeling their professional reputations are at stake. Then the rooms start to be sabotaged, and an unfortunate designer turns up dead - making Mother a prime suspect. Can Meg catch the real killer in time to save Mother the indignity of arrest?

We want MORE MEG! We want MORE MEG!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Nightingale Before Christmas to be better than the print version?

I love reading Donna Andrew's Meg Langslow series. However, reading isn't possible when I'm working with my hands in my studio. That's when I listen to audio books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Nightingale Before Christmas?

I loved when the community pitched in to help Meg's mother with her room.

What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

Ms. Dunne has a beautiful voice. It has a natural flow. Her characters are distinctive without being cartoonish.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book keeps me at my workbench. That's what I want from an audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I like a good easy listening series. Characters that I'm familiar with help me get straight to work. I'm an artist. I love being able to create and listen to a good book at the same time.

Bernadette Dunne is a Gem

Love Dunne's narration and the mystery is interesting, though this release is no where near as funny as the earlier books in the Meg Langslow series. If you haven't read/listened to We'll Always Have Parrots, then please, please, please give it a try. It's hilarious. There are funny moments in The Nightingale Before Christmas, but the focus definitely on the murder mystery. I wish the publisher would release ALL of the books in this series in audio because Dunne nails Meg's humor and like to hear her perform books 2-3 and 6-13.
