In this the second in the Meg Langslow series, Meg and boyfriend Michael take off to an island off the coast of Maine for a weekend getaway. And when they get to this Island the laughs start. Not only is the Island run over with birders (a strange breed) but there is a hurricane on the way. To make matters worse Meg's entire family are there. Of course a dead body is found and the mystery has to be solved by Meg and Michael. So much fun- I laughed so much. And the book left me wanting more adventures of Meg "s and Michael's. When you read this book be sure to check out the chapter titles- they are a hoot.

Even though I am only 12 years old, I found this book very entertaining,with its cozy feel and warmth. It was a fine mystery too, and I think I might even read it again.

It was a nice book but it was less trilling than Murder with Peacocks.

If you're afraid of heights don't read this book! The main character and her boyfriend keep walking along the cliffs by the sea during a hurricane. This cozy is a bit drawn out and I kept wanting some excitement to be around the corner of one of those cliffs. It's a great book to help you get sleepy at night but just interesting enough to make you want to pick it back up the next evening.

While I don't think this second book in the series is quite as strong as the first it is still well worth reading as it advances the story and characters for the books in the series to come, most of which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. Andrews is a master at creating quirky plots and characters. This has become one of my favorite series. May she keep on writing for a long time.

The first book was great, this one....not so much. Very drawn out.

After reading Murder with Peacocks, this second mystery for Ms. Andrews is a disappointment. I did not sense the eccentricity in her characters that made her prior book a classic for my library. In Murder with Puffins, Meg and her new boyfriend run off to Monhegan Island to get away from all the relatives, and notariety resultant from solving her first murder. Unfortunately, Meg did not look at the weather report. Hurricane Gladys is heading towards the island. On the island there are numerous minor characters, many bird watchers and family members whom she can not escape as the last ferry was the one she got off. Until the Hurricane has passed by they are stranded on the island, in Aunt Phoebe's rustic cabin. Of course Meg and Michael find the dead body of an obnoxious painter. He has ruffled the feathers of everyone on the island so all are suspects. As is expected, the prime suspect is Meg's father, whom she decides to clear by solving the mystery. I miss the humor, subtle irony and character development of her prior book. (One of my favorite points in Murder with Peacocks was the aunts playing crochett out of the potato salad.) I hope the next book can closely match Murder with Peacocks.

In Murder with Puffins, Donna Andrews moves Meg Langslow, her new sweetheart Micheal, and the most interesting of the cast of characters from Murder with Peacocks to an island off the coast of Maine - thereby showing us that her comic flair flourishes on Maine's rocky coast as well as the southern sun of her first book. I thoroughly enjoyed this second book, which maintains the charm and zany plotting of her first book while developing her cast of characters. I'm already longing for the next in the series. I can't wait to see where she takes Meg and company next.

MURDER WITH PUFFINS was a huge letdown! After reading MURDER WITH PEACOCKS and loving it, I was truly disappointed in just about everything in this novel. The romance between Michael and Meg stagnated and the humor that was included in the last book was nowhere to be found. Every chapter began with a silly title having to do with puffins that got old VERY fast. The discovery of the murderer was an original idea, but not enough to save the novel for me. Pass on this one folks!

Meg and Michael have a healthy romantic relationship, but struggle to find some private intimate time together. She lives with her parents and he rents a room in a professor¿s house. Even when they go dining in a restaurant they have no privacy as everyone seems to recognize Meg as the person who recently solved a big profile murder case. Though fame may last for fifteen minutes, Michael shakes his head in disbelief as other diners constantly bombard Meg for autographs or ask her prurient questions. Seeking some quality time by themselves, Meg and Michael go Aunt Phoebe¿s cabin on Monehegan Island off of the Maine coast.

When they arrive, they find the abode filled with other people including Phoebe, Meg¿s immediate family, and an old family friend. A nasty storm traps everyone on the island. To get away, the couple takes long walks together. On one of their treks, they come across the murdered corpse of famous artist, local resident Victor Resnick. Circumstantial evidence points towards Meg¿s father or aunt as being the most likely perpetrators to have killed the villainous Mr. Resnick. The intrepid Meg and her valiant beau plan to prove otherwise.

Donna Andrews first novel, MURDER WITH PEACOCKS, won the 1997 St. Martin¿s Malice Domestic Award. Her second book, MURDER WITH PUFFINS, proves that Ms. Andrews was no rookie flash, but a talented author with the potential of becoming a superstar. Her likable characters are offbeat and endearing and enhance the fast-paced, entertaining story line. Fans of regional amateur sleuth tales will gain much pleasure from this wonderful novel.

I thought this book was decent but I would call it crap compared to Murder with Peacocks. this is the only book inher series I don't really like. It was boring and lacking humor.
