“Always a treat.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews
“Andrews has mastered the art of writing farce with style and wit, although she sometimes goes over the top—literally, in a scene with sloths swinging from chandeliers.”—Mystery Scene
Donna Andrews is the author of the Meg Langslow mysteries, including Stork Raving Mad and Swan for the Money. She has won the Agatha, Anthony, and Barry awards, a Romantic Times award for best first novel, and two Lefty and two Toby Bromberg Awards for funniest mystery. When not writing fiction, Andrews is a self-confessed nerd, rarely found away from her computer, unless she's messing in the garden. She lives in Reston, Virginia.
