      I read the first book in this series a while back, and since I remembered enjoying it quite a bit I figured I couldn't go too far wrong skipping ahead in the series (to the twentieth book! Wow) for Die Like an Eagle. I was right – it was a lot of fun.I did have some quibbles – starting with a comment by heroine Meg that "Until lately, the only Biff I knew was a character in Death of a Salesman" – but but Have you never seen Back to the Future? Ever?The plot involves our detecting heroine a [...]

      In this 20th book in the series Meg Lanslow - blacksmith, wife, mother, amateur sleuth, and assistant to the mayor of Caerphilly - is the team mom for her twin sons' baseball team, the Eagles. The President of the Caerphilly Summerball League is local builder Biff Brown, a dictatorial bully who makes up and enforces his own rules. Moreover Biff's company is contracted to maintain the baseball field, but he does almost nothing. Thus the field is all weeds and potholes with bleachers and dugouts t [...]

      This was another great Meg Lanslow book. This one revolved around baseball. I am still scratching my head about how they can get a picnic for 100 people together in about an hour, but hey, it's fiction and apparently there were already 50 people coming, so what's another 50. HA!Speaking of baseball, yes the twins are signed up to play summer league. Little does Meg and Michael know its a tight click and a lot of the rules aren't in the rule book. Not when you have a new self-proclaimed dictator [...]

      Meg’s twins have joined the local youth baseball league, and Meg is quickly learning what a tyrant Biff Brown, the head of the league, can be. While most of the parents hate him, he hasn’t damped the enthusiasm any, and most of the town turns out for opening day. However, there is a major delay when Meg finds a dead body in the field’s only porta potty.The politics of local baseball seemed to be more of the focus than the mystery this time, although Meg still spends plenty of time investig [...]

    5. Amanda on said:

      Die Like an Eagle was a fun cozy mystery complete with a protagonist who apparently can’t help but find dead bodies wherever she looks. This twentieth installment in the Meg Langslow mystery series has all the twists and secrets you’d hope for in a good cozy, as well as entertaining characters and that small-town feel that’s always important. As with most cozies, I do wonder how such a small town could have so many murders, but I guess with a series set over many years, it’s a little les [...]

      Twentieth in the Meg Langslow cozy, humorous mystery series revolving around an artisan blacksmith and her very extended family in Yorktown, er, Caerphilly, Virginia.My TakeAndrews certainly had me laughing right off, as Mason is just not ready ready, ROFL. Parents will empathize with this one, as Meg battles a dictatorial Little League coach and bemoans the lack of participation by the parents. Until Meg learns why no one is helping out. Man, it will drive you mad that the parents accept stupid [...]

      This might very well be the end of the Meg Langslow series for me. The majority of the recent releases have been dull to begin with, and this one was even more so. I though I was picking up a murder mystery, when instead it was basically an entire book about youth baseball. Zzzzz. And this installment had a noticeable lack of appearances by the colorful cast of minor characters, like Rob and Rose-Noire, who typically provide some humor and interest.But it was the horrific editing and lackluster [...]

      I love Meg Lanslow and was happy to see book 20 coming out. She is now working for the town and is trying to get Biff Brown's construction company to get busy getting the town square in shape but he's a difficult man to find. He's muscled his way into running the Summer League Baseball in town and he has enemies galore. When his brother is found murdered everyone thinks it should have been Biff. Meg is sleuthing on two fronts as new baseball president and the town's assistant to the mayor. Love [...]

      It's hard to believe that this is #20 in the series. I've been a fan since the beginning and this book doesn't disappoint. The youth sport league politics are spot on. Josh, Jamie, and Michael are very present in this book, as the twins are playing baseball, Michael is a coach and Meg is the team mom. I envy Meg's formidable organizing skills. The murderer was a surprise as was the motive, but believable in context. The fun of these books lies in the characters and their interactions. The series [...]

    10. Kerry on said:

      Another fun entry in this series. I did rather like this one, even if I'm a totally non-American, non-baseball fan. I understood it enough to get the drift when I needed to, and the story wasn't really about baseball at all. It was, as always, about people. This is a series I get from the library these days, but I get myself in the reserve queue as soon as the book goes up on the library website. It's always fun.

    11. Jeannie and Louis Rigod on said:

      When isn't Meg Langslow a joy to reconnect with? Never. I know when I begin one of these episodes in Meg's life that I'm going to laugh, enjoy a good mystery, and see life from a different perspective.As was in the case of Meg and the world of Baseball. Meg's twin sons are in little league. Their worlds now evolve around the lure of bats, balls, and games. The only problem is that the President of the league is a major league headache. He appears to be corrupt. This is why, we the reader, are su [...]

      Return of Meg the Lady Blacksmith - her iron work is once again part of the plot.Organization is now her job, as well as a major part of the plot.The baseball coach everyone loves to hate - is hateful at his day-job, too. Then he doesn't die - what went wrong?

    13. Barbara ★ on said:

      I learned a little bit more than I wanted to about little league but an engaging mystery nonetheless.

    14. Jonathan on said:

      Really 4.5 stars. Excellent. The only drawback was some cozy stereotypes were fulfilled.

    15. Cyn Mcdonald on said:

      The twins are playing Summerball, so the setting is small-town boys' baseball. Typical Meg story, and despite the title there are no dead eagles.

    16. Mary on said:

      #20 in the Series This book is part of the Meg Langslow series. I enjoy these books because they are fun and she uses some great words that are great for vocabulary building.  Meg's twins, Josh and Jamie, are playing ball for the first year in the Summer League. The league was started by parents frustrated by the manager of the Little League. He is a tyrant that has alienated many of the parents to the point that they are afraid to gather and talk with each other. When Meg and her husband, Mic [...]

      This is a long running series, but the first time I read anything by this author. Not having read the previous books in the series did not take away from the story at all. This was a fun cozy mystery filled with quirky characters and BASEBALL!! My all time favorite sport, even at the Little League level. There were a few discrepancies that weren't that big of a deal, or took away from the storyter all it's light reading, not a masterpiece vying for the Pulitzer. Ms Andrews did a fine job of capt [...]

    18. Patty on said:

      Andrews is managing to keep the series interesting after 20 books, that is quite an accomplishment.The book summary really says it all. We get another visit to Caerphilly and the zany relatives of Meg Langslow. I'm glad the kids are aging, the family staying likeable without becoming annoying, and Meg doesn't make the same stupid mistakes that some amateur sleuths do. It takes quite a bit of talent for an author to keep a series going this long at this level of truly good story telling.

    19. Sarah on said:

      Look, this series has problems. It is set in a town of eternally helpful people who are always delighted to donate time and money to fix the problems that various institutions have, and Meg has an unending supply of cousins who can be dragooned as free labor, and a mother with near-miraculous organizational and persuasive powers. It is, in a word, unbelievable. But it has its entertaining moments.

    20. Jessie on said:

      Another fun, light read in the series. I was disappointed that many of my favorite characters had little part in this book and I think Michael has been getting short-shift as a character. He has been relegated to background spouse-who-looks-after-the-kids-while-I-do-my-own-thing status for a while now. Still enjoy the series.

    21. Debra on said:

      Bernadette Dunne narrates the latest Meg Lanslow outing with her usual command of voices.With the twins playing youth baseball, all sorts of opportunities for mayhem in Caerphilly. And you just have to love a league that fields a team called the Caerphilly Flatworms.

    22. Ellie Oberth on said:

      Donna Andrews keeps this series fresh. Every Meg Langston book is good, and very funny.

    23. Susan on said:

      Surprise! Meg Langslow finds a murder victim.Die Like an Eagle adds another installment to Donna Andrews' light, clever mysteries solved by the busiest mother and wife on earth.

    24. Tracy on said:

      I love this series! It makes me laugh, but also think, too. It also makes me want to visit Caerphilly and meet these fun characters!

    25. Jamie on said:

      If you’ll recall my love of the Meg Langslow series, I’d like to start by reminding you that not all of them have won my recommendation and that I’m perfectly capable of maintaining a unbiased view, particularly with the help of my new star system which can clarify the merits of a book without sentimentality muddying the waters. That said:I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT! I don’t even care for baseball butI loved it!The local Little League/Summerball teams are getting reading for their [...]

      Another fun mystery in this series. Meg's sons have joined a summer league baseball team and she ends up finding a man dead in the porta potty at the field. He is the brother of the man running the league. This man is a very nasty person. He runs the league as his personal fiefdom and coaches two teams and no likes him. If he doesn't get his way he makes up rules that go in his favor and everyone has to go along or they are blackballed. Meg doesn't stand for this and butts heads with the man and [...]

      Meg's two boys are playing summer baseball and so we are treated to a funny look into the stressful world of today's youth sports leagues. The half brother of the league's president is found dead in a porta-potty on opening day, but it's suspected that he was killed in a case of mistaken identity. Meg finds herself embroiled in the mystery as she tries to deal with Biff, the president, to improve the condition of the ball fields, make baseball a pleasant experience for the community and to compl [...]

      Another funny installment in the chronicles of Meg, the notebook that tells (her) when to breathe, and her huge and raucous circle of family and friends. When murder spills onto the unkempt town field where her twins' team is practicing baseball, Meg becomes embroiled in league politics and secrets. As she juggles the logistics of finding somewhere the kids can play, riding herd on the elusive contractor supposed to be finishing improvements on the town square, her job as aide to the mayor, tryi [...]

    29. Anne on said:

      I liked this book ok. I've read this series a long time and it has lost some appeal to me. It feels like I'm vested in the characters and the story though so I keep reading them. It occurs to me that Ms Andrews needs to read some of her earlier works to get her mojo back. They are not as funny as they were at first. And a few things bother me in the book. Seems she is never with the kids. Poor Michael has them all the time. She seems to have carte Blanche just everywhere for every thing. Could b [...]
