Bickering Birds by Mildred Abbott

Bickering Birds (Cozy Corgi Mysteries #3)
Book Description:
Rocky Mountain National Park has it all: rugged peaks, pine-scented forests, enchanting bird-watching locations, and… murder. 
The Cozy Corgi bookshop finally opens, and Winifred Page and her headstrong corgi, Watson, are ready to welcome their first patrons. With her new best friend, Katie, creating heavenly pastries in the bakery on the top floor of the store, Fred’s dreams are all coming together in delicious and unexpected ways. 
When Katie caters a meeting of the Feathered Friends Brigade and drags Fred along, they expect nothing more than loquacious chatter about birds as they endeavor to build a professional relationship with the owner of the wild bird shop. Fred and Katie are quickly roped into a moonlight snowshoeing hike in hopes of spotting a rare owl. While the endangered bird proves elusive… the murdered man in the snow is hard to miss.    
Fred’s growing relationship with Sergeant Wexler hits a snag when he forbids her from donning her sleuth hat yet again. But Fred is a lot like her corgi—she doesn’t like being told what to do, even if it puts an end to a possible romance. 
As Fred and Watson delve into the lives of the ornithological club members, the tangled birds’ nest of an investigation makes Fred wonder if she should have left this one to the police. But when feathers begin to fly, Fred has no choice but to flush out a killer… 

My Thoughts:
These books are so entertaining!  This is the third in the series and you really should read them in order so you know everything going on.  I've fallen in love with the characters Mildred Abbott has created.  Reading this series is truly fun and each shows character growth/change.  Fred's store is open and life is going well.  Then, of course, there is a dead body.
I like the two guys who are interested in Fred. They are different and I'm curious which, if either, she will wind up actually choosing. There are plenty of laughs in this one and Watson is still my favorite!  I do love the descriptions and animals through these books and cannot wait to see what happens next to these crazy characters.
It was a 4/5 for me.
