Empty Nest
by Marty Wingate

EMPTY NEST is riveting! So much so, I recommend setting aside a block of time to read it start to finish–you won’t want to stop before the end.
~Mallory Heart Reviews

The pace is quick, the characters are well-developed, and the plot has many twists and turns.

What a great read from a great author.

Thinking about the Brit-coms I adore, this kind of reminds me of “To the Manor Born” (with Penelope Keith). I could totally see the “Birds of a Feather Mysteries” becoming a mini-series on the BBC.

If you like cozy mysteries in small English towns, you can’t go wrong with either of Marty Wingate’s series.
~Reading Reality

It ‘s a well-written and engaging story with many twists and surprises. I also loved the setting, a picturesque town in the UK.

I love how the author is able to transport readers into the life on a British estate, and to be able to experience the British countryside through her words.

If you love Laura Childs, Ellery Adams, or Jenn McKinlay, don’t miss Marty Wingate’s charming Birds of a Feather series! In Empty Nest, Julia Lanchester’s life is interrupted by a murder most foul—and a killer who’s watching her like a hawk.

Manager of a tourist center in a quaint British village, Julia Lanchester finds herself with more ideas than time. Her boss is the Earl Fotheringill himself, but apart from him, she doesn’t mix well with the aristocracy. Unfortunately, toxic mold forces her from her cottage and into one of the earl’s countless spare rooms at the Hall. She tries to get a handle on her overload of work, while she finds herself arguing with dinner guests, chaffing at the sudden interest the earl’s son has in running the estate, and missing her new beau, Michael Sedgwick.

Her life goes from bad to sinister when Julia discovers poisoned sparrowhawks on the expansive estate grounds. And soon after, she finds one of the Hall’s visitors murdered—felled by the same poison. While simultaneously both spooked and angry, she still can’t keep herself from snooping, and dragging Michael along into her investigation. But will she find the culprit before her own wings are clipped?
