The Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society | [Augusta Trobaugh]

The Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society

Coconut cake, grits, poisoned turtle stew and bird-watching...the ladies of tiny Tea-Olive, Georgia, share a lot of interests, including murder.

Retired judge L. Hyson Breed, a Yankee, picked the wrong Southern woman to trick, bully and steal from. The members of the Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society plot revenge after the judge's marriage to their friend, Sweet, turns out to be a greedy grab for her land and for control of their town. To the rescue: Beulah, Zion, and Wildwood (all named after hymns, as is Sweet).

Publisher's Summary

Coconut cake, grits, poisoned turtle stew and bird-watching...the ladies of tiny Tea-Olive, Georgia, share a lot of interests, including murder.

Retired judge L. Hyson Breed, a Yankee, picked the wrong Southern woman to trick, bully and steal from. The members of the Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society plot revenge after the judge's marriage to their friend, Sweet, turns out to be a greedy grab for her land and for control of their town. To the rescue: Beulah, Zion, and Wildwood (all named after hymns, as is Sweet).

The only problem? The wannabe murderers are southern matrons from a more civilized generation. How does one remain polite even while planning to kill a man and get away with it?

Augusta Trobaugh is the acclaimed author of these southern novels also from Bell Bridge Books: Sophie and the Rising Sun, Music from Beyond the Moon, River Jordan, Resting in the Bosom of the Lamb, Swan Place and Praise Jerusalem.

    Where does The Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Number 2


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society?

    The way that Beulah and Zion kept trying to figure out ways to get rid of the judge really funny how Sweet did it on her own.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Where Tobias got up to speak at the town meeting to save the library.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would say when Beulah had to figure out how to give Tobias a new shirt.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story my favorite character was Zion nothing was going to get get in her way of getting rid of the judge. This was truly an awesome book I will need to get for my collection. Great little town and characters.
