Synopsis

LINE YOUR DUCKS UP IN A ROW…
The hilly terrain next to the old Sprocket house that Meg Langslow and her fiancé, Michael, are refurbishing is the perfect location for an "extreme" croquet field—even the legs of cows and sheep are convenient extra wickets. A sport traditionally reserved for genteel society, croquet has become all the rage in Caerphilly…until it appears someone in town has taken the "rage" a bit too literally.

AND KNOCK 'EM DEAD.
While stumbling down a steep bank after her ball, Meg encounters the body of a fresh female corpse with a mallet-sized dent in her head. If that isn't reason enough to call a time-out, it turns out that Michael knew the woman from years before. Ever curious, Meg decides that playing arm-chair sleuth is far more important than working on her game…and soon she finds herself in the perfect position to solve the murder mystery—or become the next victim.

Another funny Meg Langslow murder mystery!
March 25th, 2015
What could go wrong when Meg Langslow & a group of family members, friends & strangers participate in an eXtreme croquet tournament -- well, a murder of course. When Meg finds a recently dead body during a game, her & Michael's house becomes the center for a number of stranded participants & chaos reigns. Renovations on the home are halted, sheep keep marauding on to the property and Spike is needed to guard boxes of documents that might help solve the mysterious death. I love this series of books for their zany atmosphere & well constructed stories. This book has a lot of funny moments but, in my opinion, was not quite as hilarious as some of the previous entries in the series.
