The 6th book in the Merry Wrath series is amazing! Merry, ex-CIA agent hiding in her old hometown after being outed has a wedding to plan to Rex a detective in the local police force and it is just causing her so much stress, it turned her into an insomniac.While pacing the floors all night she stops and sees her new neighbors across the street dragging a body in the wee hours of the morning. Did she really see that? Who are these people. On the edge, she calls Rex and tells him he has to investigate, she knows a body when she sees one and she is not hallucinating. After nothing was found, she feels she has to investigate herself and so it starts. Of course at the same time she and her BFF, Kelly are in charge of a group of pre-teen girl scouts who have a special day to plan for. Just something else to do. Especially since the girls love Merry and her crazy teachings. But she still has a wedding to plan for and has NO idea what to do and besides, she thinks her neighbors are murderers or even spies. And Kelly signed her up with a therapist at the hospital to help alleviate the stress and a sleep study to see why she can't sleep. To help, Merry calls her Mom in Washington who is sweet and take-charge to help plan the wedding and between Kelly and Merry's mom, things in the wedding planning direction start to fall into place. But now there is the Veterinarian's assistant who goes missing and her house is tossed. What is going on? AND there are fires that are suspicious. And Riley her old CIA partner shows up in town causing some confusion in Merry's head as well as what is he doing in her town, she no longer works with him. Riley is now working with the FBI not the CIA. Why is he here? Oh and lets add to all the craziness above with meeting Rex's twin sisters he had been estranged from for years. This gives Merry pause, she really doesn't know anything about her fiance's family, having never met his sisters or even his parents. Oh My. Well this entire crazy storyline not only keeps you on the edge of your seat, but has you laughing all the way through to the end!
I have enjoyed Merry Wrath since the first book that I received as an ARC. I did not receive this Book 6 as an ARC. I just couldn't pass up Merry!
I am so happy that Merry & Rex are finally on their road to marriage. Merry's mom is an interesting twist to this story. Kelly is such a good friend to Merry but I still really enjoy the Girl Scout Troop! Those girls are such characters! The stuff they come up with!
But I digress...murder and espionage wreck Merry's life in sleepy Iowa but I loved the twists and turns. I enjoy the Midwest references and the connotations.
If you haven't read any of the previous Merry Wrath Mysteries, please don't think that you have to read them before this one. But you will want to pick them up after you have read this one! Here's to Girl Scout cookies!
This is such a fun series. I read them all last week and was lucky to have a new release today. Merry is a strong heroine who doesn't humble in to clues or need a man to save her - she does it herself. I love the girls in her Girl Scout Troop (especially Betty), Kelly and Philby & Martini - strong character development all the way around. There is a pretty solid mystery in there too that will usually keep you guessing until the end....keep you laughing too. My one nitpick is the sorta love triangle, which seems to hopefully be wrapped up by the end of this book. That is my only complaint - it's been done over and over and it's tired. I still am giving this book and the series 5 stars - read them! You will love them!
I laughed out loud reading the first page and the book got funnier from that point on. Love the humor in this series! I'm also quite enamored with the characters and I have to say that I think all girl scouts should be like the scouts in this series. grin Another solid mystery with our intrepid ex-spy using her rather large skill set to investigate - fabulous. Things seem like they're settled, seem being the operative word here, between Rex and Merry. I like Rex - he's a stand up, wonderful guy but I just don't see him with Merry as her long term choice?? I could see a hilarious break up with Rex eventually ending up happy [who knows, Dr. Body's still available, right?]. Riley - that's what I'm thinking....
Another wonderful Merry Wrath Mystery! I laughed so much that my husband was curious about what was so funny. Poor Merry has insomnia and it has her questioning everything she sees. Was it a dream? Did it really happen? No one believes what she thinks she saw. Even her cats have you laughing. One looks like Hitler and the other looks like Elvis! Leslie Langtry is a wonderful author and the only thing that would make me hapoier is if we could get this series to come out more often! These books are worth the wait.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Another hilarious adventure for ex-CIA spy turned Girl Scout Troop Leader, Merry Wrath. She may be a crackerjack spy, which she lets you know through crazy little vignettes, but she hasn’t a clue about planning her wedding! With a little help from her mom & bff Kate, she has time to investigate the disappearance of a woman, her strange neighbors, & her fiancé’s strange family. I laughed out loud on every page. And I looooove her GS Troop! Those girls are phenomenal!
I am always excited when a new Merry Wrath book is released.....and it was worth the wait. I laughed my butt off....I loved Rex's family....and again....the Girl Scouts are the best!!! This cozy mystery is filled with hijinks, laughter and bad guys that rue the day they took on Merry Wrath. Leslie Langtry is one of my very favorite authors....I highly recommend this book...it was a hoot!
I’ve read everything I can find of Lesley Langtry. Reading her stories makes me laugh out-loud. I feel happy when I read her stories and this was no different. Mary Wrath is a likeable character with a few endearing flaws. Her x CiA skills keep coming in handy Trouble just follows. Will she survive? Will the hero and the scoundrel come to her aid? or perhaps be saved by her?
Merry is in trouble again. I think her Hitler cat is a prime detective. Between Merry and her cat she is leaps and bounds ahead of the police an FBI. Really enjoyed this book, the war on Spain was a great touch. Love little girl's who are free thinkers and who stand up for the right thing. Who could ask for any more!
Merry Wrath starts off sounding crazy and paranoid, but she soon proves that neither are true. Putting her life in jeopardy more than once, Merry proves that she was right all along, and spies eventually materialize. The author does a nice job of spicing the story with humor. A fun read.
