That ornery, but oh, so handsome, charming, and somewhat, wayward angel, Detective Bobby Starr, has returned. This time, he’s back to fulfill his third and, hopefully, his final requirement to get into Saint Peter’s prestigious Guardian Angel Squad. This time, the usually reluctant time traveler, Alexa Owl, is ready to go back to the 1960’s to assist in solving one more long-ago murder. Why? Because if all goes well, she’ll be rid of the menacing angel once and for all. Except, an emergency jerks Alexa back to her own time, and to complicate matters, she’s got a tag-along. Can Bobby solve this last case without Alexa’s help? After all, she’s got her hands full with a life-or-death mystery in the twenty-first century!
This series continues to be quite enjoyable. I liked Alexa and Bobby’s camaraderie and the quirkiness of their investigations. I thought it was a great concept to have two mysteries in this third book of the Owl’s Nest Mysteries, one in the past and one in the present. I enjoyed not knowing what would happen until the very end. If you have not read this series yet and you enjoy cozy mysteries, you will want to read them all.
