If You Like Marty Wingate Books, You’ll Love…

Marty Wingate Synopsis: The Rhyme of the Magpie by Marty Wingate is the first book in the Birds of a Feather Mysteries series. With her personal life in ruins, Julia Lanchester feels she has no choice but to leave her job on her father’s hit BBC Two nature show, A Bird in the Hand. Accepting a tourist management position in Smeaton-under-Lyme, a small village in the English countryside, Julia throws herself into her new life, delighting sightseers (and a local member of the gentry) with tales of ancient Romans and pillaging Vikings. But the past is front and center when her father, Rupert, tracks her down in a moment of desperation. Julia refuses to hear him out; his quick remarriage after her mother’s death was one of the reasons Julia flew the coop. But later she gets a distressed call from her new stepmother: Rupert has gone missing. Julia decides to investigate – she owes him that much, at least – and her father’s new assistant, the infuriatingly dapper Michael Sedgwick, offers to help. Little does the unlikely pair realize that awaiting them is a tightly woven nest of lies and murder.
