Publisher's Summary

Rocky Mountain National Park has it all: rugged peaks, pine-scented forests, enchanting bird-watching locations...and murder.

The Cozy Corgi bookshop finally opens, and Winifred Page and her headstrong corgi, Watson, are ready to welcome their first patrons. With her new best friend, Katie, creating heavenly pastries in the bakery on the top floor of the store, Fred’s dreams are all coming together in delicious and unexpected ways.

When Katie caters a meeting of the Feathered Friends Brigade and drags Fred along, they expect nothing more than loquacious chatter about birds as they endeavor to build a professional relationship with the owner of the wild bird shop. Fred and Katie are quickly roped into a moonlight snowshoeing hike in hopes of spotting a rare owl. While the endangered bird proves elusive...the murdered man in the snow is hard to miss.

Fred’s growing relationship with Sergeant Wexler hits a snag when he forbids her from donning her sleuth hat yet again. But Fred is a lot like her corgi - she doesn’t like being told what to do, even if it puts an end to a possible romance.

As Fred and Watson delve into the lives of the ornithological club members, the tangled birds’ nest of an investigation makes Fred wonder if she should have left this one to the police. But when feathers begin to fly, Fred has no choice but to flush out a killer....

good book but she's quick to be witchy!

The story line is original and fun to follow but the main character Fred is snarky and jumps to conclusions fast. She is *itchy about things that could easily be overlooked. I'm not one to hold grudges personally so this character flaw makes me kinda like her less. Other than that, it's good!

Recipe in final chapter

I love the fact that in the final chapter it gave you a recipe. Most books they have recipes in them you don’t get them if you listen to the audio version

Couldn’t finish - annoying protagonist and reader

I hung on for 12 chapters but could not finish. The main character was incredibly unlikable - self-centered, childish, rude, and foolish. Maybe then I should like the almost baby-voice the reader chose for her; I guess it’s appropriate. The reading was clear, but nasal and grating. Pacing during dialogue was stilted and unnatural. I very rarely don’t finish a book, but I found I didn’t care enough about the resolution to tolerate any more.

Had Enough

character is whiney, childish and I am done. perhaps I have outgrown cozy mysteries. I just can't take all the know-it-all lead female characters.

Decent Enough

The protagonist is fairly likeable. She relies far to heavily on the fact that her father was a policeman using that to imply that she should automatically be good at solving murder.

The plot was decent and I feel it could feed into a deeper story, which I like.

The narrator's voice is extremely annoying and probably why I won't listen to anymore in this series. I also noticed Leo's voice/accent changed and it sounds terrible.

In this novel it is revealed that the protagonist's uncle through marriage is Black, that Leo is Hispanic and that one of the other characters is Asian. As a Black woman I am always starved of diversity in this genre but as much as I want to appreciate it, it was all very by the way and feels a bit like pandering. I don't know, I don't think it did what it was supposed to.
