As Birds & Bees owner Amy Simms guides a halfhearted birding group around Ruby Lake, rumors soon start flying about the annual Fall Festival’s classic car and tractor show. Local eccentric Chick Sherman—boasting the hottest ride in town—has ruffled feathers by mysteriously entering the contest, and curious Amy hatches a plan to sneak a glimpse at the phantom automobile before the big event kicks off . . .
But competition turns deadly when Amy finally spots the sleek ’56 El Morocco—and it’s on top of Chick’s very dead body. With her neighbor and business partner framed as the murderer and priceless Audubon prints suddenly missing from Chick’s home, only Amy can identify the telltale markings of a killer before another hapless victim is plucked from the flock . . .
Amy takes her bird watching group on a walk around Ruby Lake, but talk soon turns from birds to cars. Her group are all excited about the upcoming classic car show, and a few members even have cars they intend to enter. When one classic car ends up with a dead body underneath, Amy decides it’s time to investigate.
This is a fun cozy with a great team of characters. Bird enthusiasts will enjoy the bird facts sprinkled throughout, and everyone will enjoy trying to figure out who killed Chick!
Chickadee Chickadee Bang Bang is the 5th book in the Bird Lover’s Mystery series.
