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.

    Let's visit Smeaton-under-Lyme, a lovely English town where Julia Lanchester the daughter of the famous birder, Rupert Lanchester lives with her boyfriend, Michael Sedgwick. Michael is Julia's father personal assistant. Julia manages the town's Fotheringill estate tourist center Julia and Michael are off on a holiday when they get a call to return to the village. They both had gotten an email from Nick Hawkins, Julia's ex-husband. Both ignored the emails planning to attend to them upon their return. Their vacation is interpreted, calling them back to town. A dead body has surfaced on the grounds of the Fotheringill estate. 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 via Net Gallery for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.
