Description:

Meg's husband has decided to escalate his one-man show of Dickens' A Christmas Carol into a full-scale production with a large cast including their sons Jamie and Josh as Tiny Tim and young Scrooge and Meg helping as stage manager.

The show must go on, even if the famous―though slightly over-the-hill―actor who's come to town to play the starring role of Scrooge has brought a sleigh-load of baggage and enemies with him. And why is Caerphilly suddenly overrun with a surplus of beautiful caged finches?

How the Finch Stole Christmas! is guaranteed to put the "ho ho hos" into the holidays of cozy lovers everywhere with its gut-bustingly funny mystery.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Meg and her husband Michael whose been working with a very difficult actor to put on A Christmas Carol which is making the Ebeneezer a saint compared to the actor named Malcolm Haver they are trying to keep sober and in line.  Meg also finds herself knee deep in finches and can't figure out why other than her grandfather trying to foster finches all over town!  When a local renter Johnny Willimer winds up dead and no idea what happened Meg finds herself more questions than answers!  Will they figured who killed the renter and why?  Will the play go on without a problem or will it get worse?

I loved this series granted I had read one previous book I really need to catch up.  Meg and Michael have their hands full with so much going on.  I liked the banter between certain characters at time made me laugh.  Such an enjoyable adventure to go on it was such fun and really was a great mystery as well!
