A Bird Lover's Mystery
It's just days before Amy Simms plans to open her Birds & Bees birding shop on the first floor of her creaky Victorian house in Ruby Lake, North Carolina. But delayed seed shipments have prevented her from stocking the shelves. It doesn't help that Amy's best friend and business partner is out of town indefinitely. And with locals skeptical about the niche shop taking flight, the last thing Amy needs now is a dead man in her storeroom - or a crotchety tenant catching her holding a bloody birdfeeder hook over his body. Pigeonholed as a leading suspect and lacking a solid alibi, Amy starts delving into the victim's ugly past.
