Meg's paternal grandfather has hired Stanley Denton to find her grandmother Cordelia. Stanley has found a trail to his long-lost love in a small town a short drive away. He convinces Meg to come with him to meet her, but unfortunately, the woman they meet is Cordelia's cousin. Cordelia died several years ago, and the cousin suspects she was murdered by her long-time neighbor.
Stanley and Meg agree to help track down the killer. Grandfather even has perfect cover: He, along with most of Meg's family and friends in Caerphilly, will stage a rescue of the feral emus and ostriches that infest this town. But then the neighbor is murdered, and not only Cordelia's cousin but also the entire contingent of emu-rescuers are suspects.

E-Myoos - not E Moos!
This is one of the more "meaty" titles in the Meg Langslow series. There are more issues, real and fictional. It's great that we've gotten another addition Meg Langslow's ever-increasing quirky family.
Offhand, I can't come up with another extremely well-written entertaining ecological / rural issue cozy.
Other than mispronouncing emu every single time, her performance was excellent, as always!
Emus, mothers, murderers, and minerals - too many things are missing in this small town.
Emu is pronounced e-myoo. Not e-moo. Tooth grindingly irritating. That's the only reason to tick off one star for the performance.

Another great book by Donna Andrews
