now wildlife habitat consultant. She is
currently on site at the L’airelle Zoological
Park near a tiny French village. The village
is tucked away in a mountain valley with
detailed description of both the village, it’s
surroundings, visitors and colorful, quirky
Madi’s detective friend, Lowell Adagio has
taken holiday time to join her while she is
on location here.
A pair of paragliders swoop out of the sky
heading toward the zoo. A man falls down
into the big cat enclosure. The man is DEAD.
The fall did not kill him. The man was dead
before the fall. He was dropped into the zoo
on purpose. Why??
Lowell recognizes and identifies the man as a
private investigator that had worked on a case
with him previously. The man was also known
to be a village drunkard and not very pleasant.
But why was he killed? Was it personal or a
result of his profession??
Secretive British government agents, a
mysterious box of candy, a dog painted with
a heart on its back, anonymous phone calls
at several persons homes, flavored black
spiders, balls with treats inside for the big
cats, investigating trip to the paragliding
school, an annoying old woman, an antagonist
law enforcement officer, village activities,
monkeys running free plus a pregnant dog
make this book an intriguing read.
A well plotted puzzle with many twists and
turns to keep the reader totally engrossed.
This is book # 3 in the Madigan Amos Zoo
Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand alone.
A highly recommended read.
Penguins and Mortal Peril #1 - A good thriller. A well written, intriguing suspense with a well thought out, twisting plot and believable characters. There's interesting information about the zoo and its animals. Madi is an intelligent, caring person, especially with the animals, and takes loving care of the zoo. There's also humor; beware of furry pyschos. The animals are a good part of the story and some even have their own personalities. I finished the book in one sitting, immersed in the mystery. If you liked Blooming, you'll like this book, too.
The Silence of the Snakes #2 - Spellbinding! Ruby just gets better with each book she writes. A well written, intriguing suspense with believable characters and a plot that doesn't let the reader put down the book until the last page. This is a substantial story, not a weak cozy, that would make Christie proud to write. Don't let this series pass you by, they're must reads.
Lions and the Living Dead #4 - Her best book yet! This is a substantial and intriguing suspense with a well written, fast paced plot and believable characters. The main characters continue to evolve and the new characters are developed enough to have weight. The descriptions and storylines are vivid and full. The dialog realistic. The story flows from page to page making it difficult to put the book down. I stayed up late to finish it.
I have to recommend this series as must reads. Start with Penguins #1 to meet Madi and finish with Lions. If these are the only two books of the series you read, you picked well. But don't miss out on Silence and Monkey's Game. Sequentially is how they should be read, but it's not necessary, they're all standalones.
Blooming #1 - A quick, fun read with bits of suspense. Armed with self-doubt in the beginning, the main character uses integrity, determination and hard work to succeed and becomes an outstanding young woman while changing the life of the people around her. This book is filled with humor and suspense. The author did a good job with this book; still needs editing. But this recent work is vastly superior over her earlier writings. Like the main character, she persevered, too.
The Swallow's Storm #1- Intriguing. A well written suspense with interesting characters, most of them, and an intriguing plot that holds the reader's interest. This is the second story I've read in this series; the first was #4 The Waxwing Winter. The series has grown in substance and development. A quick, but substantial book, perfect for lunch or relaxation.
The Starling's Summer #2 - Intriguing. This book picks up where The Swallow's Storm ended. This series gets better with each book. I read #4 first, then #1 and #2, and the growth of the author is apparent with these three books; plus I've read several of her earlier books and she has improved with experience. Her Zoo and her Blooming series are also substantial reading.
The Waxwing Winter #4 - Multiple intertwining stories in one novel. (No, not short stories) Another well written, interesting story with several story lines happening, along with a murder. Add interesting characters and plot that keep the reader involved as the story unfolds. This is the first book I've read of this series, so the mini-stories are just continuations of the previous books? I've read many books by this author and she has improved greatly with experience. Her stories, starting with the Blooming Series, have become more substantial. Her books have always been entertaining, but now it's better.
