Book Review: Byrd's Eye View by Chautona Havig

 About the Book

Book: Bird’s Eye View
Author: Chautona Havig
Genre: Fiction / Christian / Historical / Mystery
Release Date: April 15, 2020

If everything looks so perfect, how does she know it’s all wrong?

Madeline just wanted to learn to develop her own pictures. It seemed an innocent enough pastime until she sees something in the developer’s tray that piques her meddlesome curiosity.

Now she’s on the hunt for clues to spare a man’s life, and she might just land her father in hot political waters while she’s at it.

The fifth book in the Meddlin’ Madeline Series, Byrd’s Eye View sees Madeline back at home in Rockland and determined to stay out of trouble, although that’s not likely to happen, is it?

My Review

It was so good to read about Madeline again, just like connecting with an old friend.  This book picks up where the last one left off, so there was a lot of extra tension between the characters.  When Maddie and Russell finally talked about what had happened, I felt the tension ease.  But in having their friendship back, another type of tension developed, which left me crying out for another book in the series!

This novel had a different type of plot than the ones previously.  A wonderful something in this book was that the other characters seem to have finally realized that Maddie's sleuthing abilities were a gift, not a whim, and they were necessary to solve a mystery and protect innocent people that they cared about.

Please note that Havig writes this novel in a way that someone new to the series could pick it up and enjoy it, so readers of historical fiction and mysteries will be sure to appreciate it.

I received a copy of this book from the author, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

About the Author

Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her on the web and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.
