If you like traditional mysteries, this is a series you'll want to check out!
In A RANT OF RAVENS, Rachel Stanhope has come to her Aunt Miriam's home–a ranch in Colorado that also serves as a bird sanctuary–in search of refuge. With her marriage in shambles and her fast-paced life stuck in low gear, she can't tell a sparrow from a swallow. But she doesn't plan to spend much time scouring the skies for birds. Then, as a favor to her widowed aunt, she agrees to host the meetings of the local birdwatching society.
While searching for a LeConte's sparrow on her first expedition, Rachel makes a gruesome discovery: the dead body of a reporter for Birds of a Feather magazine. Rachel knew he had recently questioned Miriam about her deceased husband's involvement in a bird trafficking scheme, and had warned her to beware. Now Miriam's the chief suspect in his murder. But while Rachel is busy sorting out possible motives, three rare birds go missing and Miriam disappears without a trace!
