What do shamans, birds, and missing people have in common? Ava has no idea, but she's about to embark on a journey to find the truth.
Ava Maria Sophia Cecilia O'Dell would like to crawl into a safe cocoon after the disaster of visiting her boyfriend's family. But there is no time to hide at home because her brother needs a favor. Fortunately, that favor does not involve joining him on his latest ghost hunt. Instead, she can stay behind at the store and play host for a shamanic workshop. How hard could that be? But soon all her ideas of sitting in the back office and taking care of paperwork (or scrolling through social media on her phone) are tossed aside.
She might not know how to do a shamanic journey or why her nemesis, Debbee, has returned, but she knows a dead body when she sees one.
Soon the body count piles up, and she works to figure things out. Why did a shamanic workshop result in a killing? Why did the shaman disappear, and where is he? What does the birding conference have to do with anything? In the midst of playing detective, she desperately tries to avoid a toxic family situation and determine what, and who, is in her future.
Birding in Brewster Square is the second in the Brewster Square series about a delightful Connecticut shoreline town.
