The Woodpecker Always Pecks Twice (A Bird Lover's Mystery #3) (Mass Market)

The Woodpecker Always Pecks Twice (A Bird Lover's Mystery #3) By J.R. Ripley Cover Image
Not Available


A red-bellied woodpecker may lead to a yellow-bellied killer . . .
One morning when unwilling early bird Amy Simms grabs her binoculars for a closer look at the woodpecker who’s been waking her up, she can't believe her eyes. Across Ruby Lake, through a curtain of rain, she sees a body being tossed out of an upstairs window at the old McKutcheon place.
Or at least she thinks she does. The police chief finds no body—only a discarded dressmaker's dummy—and complains that Amy sent him on a wild-goose chase. She should probably focus on minding her store, Birds & Bees, but Amy can't help snooping. And when she turns up another body—a murdered member of her birdwatching group—Amy once again needs to wing it as a sleuth to zoom in on a killer . . .
