Bob White Birder Murder Mysteries
review 1: This birder mystery is a great, fun read. The characters are believable, distinct and true to themselves. Creepy Stan exuded creepiness! And…he kept showing up. The author thoroughly weaved the murder mystery plot with birding, environmentalism, school counseling, police work, academia politics, strained sibling relationships, friendship and romance. As a bird nerd and a mystery novel fanatic this book thoroughly entertained me. Before reading the book I knew nothing about the Boreal Owl—I learned some unique Boreal Owl characteristics. The humor authenticated the character relationships and story line. The plot spins and turns created a solid story. The author excelled at keeping the hooks coming.
review 2: I love when I read a mystery and, in addition to
... morean intriguing plot, great setting and interesting characters, I get to learn about a subject I previously knew little about. That was the case with "The Boreal Owl Murder" by Jan Dunlap. It had all the ingredients of a good mystery interspersed with information on the sport of birding. When Bob White, a birding enthusiast, heads for the woods in search of a rare bird, he finds something that will shake up his life and change the way he views his favorite pastime. less

OK story. Liked the birding tie-in, but not really a great mystery.
Good mystery with lots of great birding stuff.
Enjoyable characters. Will read another.
