The Case of the Parrot Loving Professor
by Debbie De Louise

I recommend THE CASE OF THE PARROT LOVING PROFESSOR to cozy mystery readers, especially those that enjoy stories featuring pets or settings in upstate New York.

Cathy Carter knew that returning to college would be tough, but she never expected it would involve finding her anthropology professor’s dead body.

There are no shortages of suspects in Dr. Bodkin’s murder. Besides his three ex-wives and estranged son and daughter, there are also the members of the Talking Parrots Club, a group of four parrot enthusiasts, of which he was the president and founder.

As Cathy delves into Bodkin’s murder, she discovers a relationship between her teacher and the Mennonite family from whom she purchased the farmland for her new pet rescue center. She and her friend Nancy, now employed at a detective agency, work together to help Detective Hunt and Sheriff Miller solve the crime.

Cathy followed Michael over to the cage and peered in. Looking back at her were one pair of golden eyes and one pair of green ones. The golden eyes belonged to a completely black kitten. The green eyes were from a calico but, instead of the regular black, orange, and white markings, this one was gray with white paws, neck, and stomach with a few patches of apricot.

Brody pointed at them. “The black kitty is a boy. The other is a girl. They’re siblings like me, Maggie, and Gladys were.” His voice carried a hint of sadness, as he was now the only Broom left.

“The female kitten is a dilute calico,” Michael explained. “She doesn’t have the traditional calico markings but more muted shades that are just as lovely if not more so. They’re both friendly. Want to hold them?”

Cathy hesitated. “I don’t know. Maybe it’s too soon after Oliver.”

Becky said, “Gran doesn’t think so. She thinks you’re both ready for these two sweeties.”

“You asked Gran?” Cathy was surprised. Her grandmother wasn’t good at keeping secrets.

“I suggested Becky ask her first,” Michael said. “But it was Brody who came up with the idea of giving them to you. I guess the three of us are responsible for your birthday gift.”

“I woulda taken em myself,” Brody said, “If I hadn’t adopted Stripey last month.” Cathy recalled that Brody had taken one of Maggie’s cats. He’d named the tiger-striped mackerel tabby, Stripey. Most of Maggie’s other cats had already found homes, although a few were now at the second Rainbow Rescues center that Cathy and Doug had purchased from the MaGregor’s when they’d sold their farm.
