Animal photographer Janet MacPhail knows that trouble is in the air when Labrador Retriever Drake fetches a blood-soaked bag holding an exotic feather and a torn one-hundred-dollar bill during a photo shoot at Twisted Lake. One of Janet’s photography students reports seeing a strange bird at the lake, but he turns up dead before Janet can talk to him. When she learns that the mysterious retreat center near the lake is housing large numbers of tropical birds, Janet is sure there’s a connection and decides to investigate between dog-training classes, photo assignments, and visits to her mom at Shadetree Retirement. With help from her Australian Shepherd Jay and her quirky friend Goldie, Janet is determined to get to the bottom of things before another victim’s wings are clipped for good.

Things are a bit hectic around here and I apologize for not being able to review this one.   :(   I was really looking forward to reading it and hope to get a chance to read it when things settle down.  If I do, I’ll post a review then.

    I just love cozy mysteries, especially with pets.
    Right now I only have a very picky cockatiel at home. Our beautiful greyhound passed, and we haven’t been able to replace her yet. Maybe someday.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

      Dee, I’m very sorry about your Greyhound. I grew up with a Deerhound and Wolfhound, and am very fond of sighthounds. Your cockatiel might enjoy The Money Bird, though – the mystery involves tropical birds! Thanks for stopping by.
