For the Birds, is a really nice read that you might enjoy on those days that you just want to sit back with a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate and do nothing. Its a warm read that I found to be very enjoyable.
Marcella Hollister, along with her husband and mother (who only wants to be called Thelma) and of course their parakeet Ruby are staying at a very high end hotel where Ruby will be entered in a competition. But after Thelma and Ruby have a near death experience, in which luckily no one is hurt, both seem to have some sort of connection to the other.
After a series of mysterious events:
Someone breaks into their hotel room
Thelma is kidnapped from the hospital
Marcella is almost ran over
Possible involvement in a bank heist
The FBI is now envolved in trying to solve the case. Marcella seems to have her doubts about one of the agents and as a result decides that she and Quinn will have better chances of finding her mom on their own.
Even though I enjoyed reading For the Birds, I felt that their were parts of the story that dragged in certain areas and more so at the ending. Altogether, I still enjoyed the book alot.
3 out of 5 hearts.
