Description

Julia Lanchester’s perch is knocked askew when murder hits a little too close to home in this delightful cozy mystery.

“Marty Wingate’s Birds of a Feather mysteries provide a perfect blend of quirky characters and atmosphere.”—Christine Goff, bestselling author of the Birdwatcher’s Mystery series
 
Julia Lanchester is flying high. She’s nesting with her boyfriend, Michael Sedgwick, and she’s found her niche as manager of the tourist center in her picturesque British village. Thanks to all her hard work, visitor traffic was up—way up. Her reward is an even more hectic schedule. Michael’s busy, too, traveling all over as the personal assistant to Julia’s father, celebrity ornithologist Rupert Lanchester. With precious little time together, Julia’s romantic weekend with Michael can’t come soon enough.
 
But the getaway is spoiled when Julia’s ex-husband is found murdered on her boss’s estate. And after a witness reports seeing Michael near the scene of the crime, the press descends, printing lies and wreaking havoc. To protect Julia, Michael vanishes into thin air, leaving her to pick up the slack on Rupert’s show and track down the real killer—even if it means putting herself in the flight path of a vicious predator.

Customer Reviews

Fun mystery

Julia finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery. Her ex-husband is dead. She is determined to figure out who killed him. Journalists in her face, her boyfriend leaving her alone, birds helping her out, and threats to her well being did not stop her. I found it hard to stop reading as I enjoyed how Julia stumbled her way through everything and realized that she could not do this alone. I look forward to more from this author.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

The body is Nick Hawkins!!! He has been stabbed to
death!!!
The star of the book is rook, named Alfie. He was found as
a fledgling then raised by a young girl named Tennyson.
Alfie is essential in solving the murder!!
Great cast of characters with an array of suspects. All the
characters were well-developed, colorful, some quirky but
each bringing their own flavor to the mix.
Mix together birding, danger, intrigue, mystery, a well
plotted book with humor plus romance and this cozy
mystery gives you a captivating read.
This is book # 3 in A Bird of a Feather Mystery series.
It can be read as a stand alone.
I volunteered to read this eBook. Thank you to Alibis
