Overview

Birds of a feather?

Tao Tandy can't wait to flee her sleepy life (safe fiancé, dead-end job) and migrate to the big city to find fame and fortune as a food photographer. First, however, she has to find somewhere to live . . .

Luck is on her side when she's offered rent-free accommodation in a beautiful London mansion — in exchange for . . .baby-sitting a parrot! Not just any old parrot. Sir Galahad is incredibly rare, not to mention worryingly clever. How hard can it be?

Apparently not as hard as her dream job working for a TV celebrity who has wandering hands and a suspicious girlfriend. Or the game of hide-and-seek she's thrown into with Chris, the sexy gardener who lives downstairs and spends all day watching Tao like a hawk! Which makes Tao mad. In fact, she's spitting feathers. It's time to show everyone who rules the roost!

Author Biography: British author Kelly Harte is having fun writing about live, life — and how to laugh at it all! Spitting Feathers is her second novel.

    Leader's Den

    Beneath the beech tree beside Highrock. It is an old fox den, a small underground stream running through the back of the cave. The leader's nest is situated behind large rock, sheltered from the elements, cradled by the beech tree's roots.

    A fun read

    Once she completed photography class, Tao Tandy headed to London expecting to take the big city by storm. A few months later, she remains unemployed crashing at the flat of her friend Sophie. However, things begin to look up when Sophie gets Tao a job bird sitting a Congo African Sir Galahad whose septuagenarian owner Adrienne Audesley is going to Portugal for two months. Tao will live in exclusive Hampstead......................................... Her luck grows when she also scores a photography job involving American TV chef Taylor Wiseman, whom she begins seeing. However, she finds herself attracted to Adrienne¿s gardener, Chris who one moment is her best pal and the next her most odious enemy even as she bonds with Sirg......................................... SPITTING FEATHERS is an enjoyable London chic lit tale that is fun to follow due to the interactions between Tao and the support cast including Sirg, who at times seems like the heroine¿s significant other (birds of a feather?). Tao¿s relationships with her mother is filled with frustration, with her friend¿s two roommates irritation, with Taylor romantic boredom, with Sirg¿s loving and finally with Chris spitting feathers as she wants him but he disturbs her. This is a fine tale that readers will enjoy...................................... Harriet Klausner

    Mostly comedy, little else...

    Tao Tandy's flatmates are anxious to get her out on her own, and to be honest, she is as well. The problem is finances, so being offered a free place to stay in the rather well off area of London in exchange for baby sitting a bird for a couple of months sounds like a winner. Tao aces the interview with the dotty old lady who owns the place and the parrot in question, and for a bit, life seems to be rosy. ......................... With a bit of exageration, her photography portfolio lands her a job taking pictures of a chef who at first seems delicious as his food. However, like a rich chocolate cake, he has a bad side effect, he's a user and being involved with him might wreck Tao's life, unless she can turn things around with the help of friends. ........................ * Domestic disasters are described with a dry British humor that may be difficult for those who speak American to appreciate. Humor takes a priority over romance in this melodramatic journal. *
