And others are saying
And I thought
This was my introduction to Marty Wingate and The Birds
Of A Feather mystery series.
The main characters are Julia and her boyfriend Michael.
In this installment Michael's sister Pammy arrives in town and settles into Julia and Michael's lives and apartment for a few days that turns into weeks. Pammy's arrival turns everything upside down and 'crowded' in the 1 bedroom 1 apartment/cottage that Julia and Michael share.
And then mere hours after Pammy's arrival a dead body is discovered in their little village.
Leaving the reader thinking 'hmm'.
This was an interesting read for me because it takes place in an English village. Many of the residents live on land owned by the
local Lord Linus. Even Julia's cottage is part of the estate as she is the Manager of the tourist center.
Even though the story line centers around the investigation of the murder that is a lot about bird watching. Which is new to me but I was interested.
The plot seemed to run a little slow for me. There wasn't a lot
of sinister situations until almost the very end.
There are a lot of towns people involved in the story making it a bit hard to keep up with everyone.
Even though in the beginning I suspected that the 'Cuckoo' was Pammy and Julia was waiting to be rid of her they did become friends in the end. And. Pammy found work and planned to
move into her own place.
I guess we will have to wait for the next book to see how Pammy's new job and new place works out.
Farewell My Cuckoo was a good read and I would enjoy reading more in the series and getting to know some of the other characters.
I received a complimentary copy.
