A WW2 Historical Mystery Perfect for Book Clubs
by Stephanie Graves
This novel is the second in a series, following on Olive Bright, Pigeoneer. This interesting historical mystery features an intrepid, occasionally naive heroine. The author highlights the important role that pigeons played in the war effort which adds an interesting twist to the tale. Think about the next time that you are annoyed by one of these city birds.
Olive is helping/hoping to transmit information that will help the Belgians via her birds when one of her military acquaintances is killed. Was it murder? Will Olive solve the case? Will her birds help the Resistance? Will Jamie and Olive manage to get along well enough to work together? Read the story to find out. Those who fancy cozy mysteries and WWII novels will enjoy this one.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Kensington for this title. All opinions are my own.
