Amy Simms and her friend, Kim Christy, are the owners of Birds & Bees in Ruby Lake, North Carolina. Amy has taken a group of birdwatchers in the town square, but several participants are more interested in an antique car they spot than with the birds. The town is gearing up for Ruby Lake Fall Festival, which includes a classic car and tractor parade and show, baking competitions, the Miss Fall Festival pageant, and vendor booths. Amy decides to sneak a peek and photograph Chick Sherman’s mysterious car show entry, but things don’t go as planned. When she realizes she lost her cell phone at the Sherman property, she drives back out there to find it and decides to enter the barn in another attempt of photographing the car; she finds a covered car in one room and a vintage El Morocco in another room. Unfortunately, she also finds Chick pinned under the car. When the authorities arrive, they determine he’s deceased and foul play may be involved. Police Chief Jerry Kennedy isn’t pleased to find Amy at the scene, even though he’s used to her snooping around his crime scenes. Paul Anderson, Amy’s tenant and business partner, is wrongfully accused of the murder and she has promised him that she will help clear his name.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A Bird Lover's Mystery.
I was mainly skeptical wondering how much actually bird watching was going on and how much depth there would be to the story.
I was pleasantly surprised.
Early in I was captivated by the town of Ruby Lake. It seemed like a fun place to visit. The characters were charming.
I loved the interaction between them.
I thought it was clever to build the story around the towns car show.
Amy seems to constantly get herself into trouble and seems to irritate the local law enforcement with her meed ling. She goes
from prime suspect in book 1. To sending the police on a wild goose chase for a body in book 4. and now in book 5 to finding dead bodies and stepping on a few toes while she investigates.
There is just enough information about birds and birding to cause
this reader to become interested in learning more about birds.
Each book in the series gives a small amount of birding info.
without over doing it. The non birder just might be converted
as I was.
Chickadee Chickadee Bang Bang not to be confused with the children's book Chicka Chicka Boom is anything but a children's
book. It is a good ole cozy mystery that will keep the reader
interested and wanting more.
I enjoyed the clever titles of the books in this series and look forward to going back and reading the series from the beginning.
I received a complimentary copy from Great Escape Tours.
It’s time for the annual Fall Festival, with the Tractor and Car Show being one of the most popular and competitive events.
As our Amy is leading a group of birdwatchers in the park most of the group is looking at a Chickadee in the tree. Karl and Floyd however have spotted something white and teal that definitely is not a bird, but a ’57 Chevy Bel Air going down the street.
Karl and Floyd soon have Amy taking them to find their own oldie but goodie so for once they can be part of the parade of cars. Even Amy’s sweetie and her neighbor Paul have caught the car fever.
When Amy decides to sneak a peek at the mysterious El Morroco that Chick supposedly has, the first person she runs into is Chick. Plan fouled. But when she returns to find her cell phone she finds Chick dead under the coveted car.
By now even the police chief is used to Amy snooping around crime scenes, so at least she isn’t being kept out of the loop, but there are always some shady folks hanging around this tiny town and the suspect list even includes some locals. But don’t worry because our girl Amy will peck around like a bird after a worm until she finds the truth!
We are in book 5 in this series now and the characters are developing nicely and I learned about another lovely bird.
Job well done Mr. Ripley!
