The Audio Book Cover
When it’s possible, I enjoy toggling between a book and its audio version. That way I can read when I have time and listen while on walks, etc. This is a system that works well for me and one that I was able to employ with this historical mystery. It is part of a series, with three titles having been released thus far.
Readers will enjoy getting to know Olive. She may just have been given an appropriate surname as she will needs her intelligence in working through the events of the story.
It is WWII. Olive’s close friend George has joined the Air Force while Olive remains (stuck) in her small village. She is helping out her father, a vet, but would like to do so much more. Her hope is that she will find an assignment with her pigeons. Well, happily for Olive and the reader, there is work to be done, quite a bit actually.
Olive becomes involved in a secret project. She also investigates the death of a local busy body.
Here is such an enjoyable read/listen. It is just perfect for fans of historical mysteries. I will definitely read and/or listen others in the series. The narration of the audio book is sport on and easy to follow.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Kensington Books and Tantor Audio for this title. All opinions are my own.
Book and Audio were released on 29 December 2020.

This one sounds delightful, Joyce, I knew a pigeon fancier (breeder) and his birds flew hundreds of miles.
