I'm addicted to Donna Andrews' witty, wacky and entertaining Meg Langslow mysteries and always enjoy spending time with Meg and her ever growing entourage. So I dived into The Falcon Always Wings Twice, the twenty seventh in this delightful series.

The settings are always new and intriguing. This time, it's a Renaissance Faire, hosted at grandmother Cordelia's craft center. As always, Meg has been enlisted to keep everything (and everybody) running smoothly and, as always, there's a difficult customer for her to deal with.

Two dozen actors, musicians and acrobats have been hired to play roles in the Game, semi-improvisational entertainment going on daily at the Faire, in 'the troubled kingdom of Albion.' Meg's husband Michael plays the Duke of Waterston.

The troublemaker is Terence, who enjoys his role as Albion's archvillain a little too much and constantly causes trouble with other cast members. Complicating matters, Grandfather shows up. He's brought wrens, thinking the Renaissance Festival was a Wren Festival!

Meg consoles him by sending him to look over the falcons, and he quickly takes on the role of court alchemist. Of course, Meg soon has a murder to solve, with a few related puzzles popping up along the way. She catches both a creep and a killer. Great fun, as always!
