It seems like some laughter and lightness, along with a big dose of community spirit, might be appreciated as we embark on a summer of resumed activity after the limitations and losses of the pandemic. Donna Andrews has written (and continues to write) a series of mysteries that all have bird themes in the title and in the narrative. Other characteristics of the books include humor, high energy, and a spotlight on the benefits of family, friendship, and faith connections.
The character who narrates the stories and does the sleuthing belongs to a church with a woman pastor and a service-oriented ministry. The church has an active altar guild, responds to almost every crisis with a potluck, and goes all out to celebrate Christmas. Yes, there is a crime or mystery to be solved, but the focus is always on how the community rises to the occasion to support and help one another. These are not literary classics, but they are fun reading.
Toucan Keep A Secret was published in 2018 and is readily available in paperback, e reader, and audio format. Our discussion will take place on Monday, June 28, at 7:00 p.m., facilitated by April Herron. Please email April@rhumc.org to communicate your intention to participate and be kept informed as to whether the gathering will take place in person or via Zoom.
