'Tis the season to be jolly - and for Meg Langslow to round
up stray animals of all sorts as well as a killer. Duck the
The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers boughs of holly
and barrels of laughs with Meg's latest adventure in her
award-winning, New York Times bestselling series. A few
nights before Christmas, Meg is awakened when volunteer
fireman Michael is summoned to the New Life Baptist Church,
where someone has rigged a cage full of skunks in the choir
loft. The lengthy process of de-skunking the church requires
its annual pre-Christmas concert to relocate to Trinity
Episcopal, where Mother insists the show must go on, despite
the budget-related protests of Mr. Vess, an elderly
vestryman. Meanwhile, when Meg helps her grandfather take
the skunks to the zoo, they discover that his boa has been
stolen - only to turn up later during the concert,
slithering out from the ribbon-bedecked evergreens. The next
morning is Sunday, and the congregation of St. Byblig's, the
local Catholic church, arrive to find it completely filled
with several hundred ducks.
