The Bird Found the Body

(The first book in the Parrots of the Caribbean Cozy Mystery series)
A novel by

Starting over in paradise can be murder.
When my fiancé leaves me high and dry, I jump at the chance to relocate to the tropical island of Half Moon Cross. I haven't talked to my Aunt Astrid in years and I've never run a bird-themed pirate tour company, but my cockatiel, Chicken, and I are desperate for a fresh start.

We're ready for sun, surf, and parrots. What we get is murder.

I might be in paradise, but I didn’t leave my problems in Boston. My Aunt is a virtual stranger and I'm scared she regrets giving me Parrots of The Caribbean. Her scarlet macaw Ruby, star of her tours, refuses to go out with me. But I didn't run escape rooms for years without learning how to solve a problem. I put Chicken in a pint-sized pirate costume and we're off. Our first voyage is almost smooth sailing—then my hawk-eyed cockatiel alerts us to a dead body on the beach!

The victim is an ex-employee and my aunt’s been framed.

If Astrid takes the blame, it will mean the end of Parrots of the Caribbean and the bird sanctuary that she cares for. And since the police aren't looking beyond her, it's up to me to find the real killer. Good thing I have some unexpected help from my new coworker and fast friend, Meg. She introduces me to Carlos, the handsome ex-detective who now makes the best fruity drinks on the island. We have too many suspects and not enough time. But when Chicken finds a key piece of evidence, my cockatiel might just crack the case.

Feathers will fly and justice will be served in this tropical cozy caper!
