BELINDA BLAKE AND THE BIRDS OF A FEATHER by Heather Day Gilbert, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

" . . . .I couldn't shake the feeling that their deaths were somehow connected. The question was why."

Belinda Blake takes a break from her life as an exotic pet sitter in Greenwich to visit her family in upstate New York in response to the death of her best friend's dear mother; Jonas Hawthorne's mom had been special. While there, a suspicious death in Larches Corner draws her attention, especially because the young decedent shared membership in a local college literature club with another young woman who died under mysterious circumstances. Sticking around town longer than expected, while caring for Jonas' mother's pigeons, Belinda takes every opportunity to "snoop" under the guise of assisting a local reporter. Connecting the dots in a murder case turned out to be more difficult than she expected, considering the fact that all her theories flew out the window the moment the real killer pointed a revolver in her face.

Enjoy this delightful cozy mystery, which ended up solving more than Belinda originally counted on, for her heart had been following some awfully strong clues of its own.

BackCover Blurb:
When exotic pet–sitter Belinda Blake starts pecking at the details of a suspicious accident in her sleepy hometown, she inadvertently digs up a murder case that won’t be solved without ruffling a few feathers . . .

The moment Belinda arrives in Larches Corner, her Upstate New York hometown, she’s immediately recruited to care for a deceased friend’s flock of homing pigeons. But Belinda’s plans for a swift visit scatter after a local college student is mowed down in a malicious hit-and-run that has the whole town reeling.

At first, the gruesome demise of Jackson Hait appears to be a random tragedy. But Belinda quickly uncovers connections to a tight-knit group of friends and a similar death three years earlier . . . one that wasn't as accidental as it seemed. Now, Belinda must pluck the truth from a tangled nest of lies before a cruel killer takes wing
