    One thought on “Empty Nest”

    1. Julia Lanchester is happy in her job in charge of in Smeaton-under-Lyme, Suffolk. Her boss, Lord Lord Linus Fotheringill, adores her, although Julia’s feeling for Linus is completely platonic. But her life’s about to be upended by the return of Linus’ heir, the morose Cecil Fotheringill, and the hire of a carping new estate manager, Geoffrey Addleton. When a pal of Cecil’s turns up dead, Julia can’t help but sleuth.I loved this as much as I did The Rhyme of the Magpie. Julia’s famous [...]

    2. 4.5 rounded up to 5 stars. A lot going on at Hoggin Hall in this book. Julia is staying at thd Hall, while her cottage is being repaired. The estate has a new manager. Linus's son has returned to learn how to run the estate. Lots of fun. Looking forwarded to the 3rd book when it is released.

    3. Empty Nest by Marty Wingate is the second book in A Birds of a Feather Mystery series. Julia Lanchester is thirty-seven years old. She changed careers recently. She used to be her father’s assistant (he is an ornithologist and hosts a show on BBC) Pipit Cottage (her home) had a severe mildew problem and she is staying at Hoggin Hall with Lord Linus Fotheringill (her boss). Julia the manager of the Tourist Information Center in Smeaton-under-Lyme. She also creates events to attract tourists to [...]

    4. Long-time travel and gardening writer Marty Wingate has branched out in the past couple of years and produced not one but two utterly charming series; The Potting Shed Mysteries and Birds of a Feather Mysteries. I have had hours of enjoyment from each series and Empty Nest does not disappoint. It is a feast for the unashamed Anglophile. Julia Lanchester, daughter of famed environmentalist and birder, Rupert Lanchester, is settling into her new position as head of tourism for the Fotheringill Est [...]

    5. Julia Lanchesteron is walking through the estate when she finds a bait station that set up to poison the sparrow hawk. Horrified she call the police and her father. Julia's cottage is in the process of being repair and she is now living the Manor House. Shortly after finding the hawks poison, she smells smoke and pulls a guest from his rooms and gives first aid. The guest later dies of the same poison that was used on the hawks. The police select the housekeeper as the person of interest. Julie [...]

    6. I received this eBook via Netgalley for review.Sparrowhawks are front and center this time. The poisoning of sparrowhawks on Earl Fotheringill's estate brings another mystery to Julia Lanchester along with dire circumstances for everyone residing on the estate grounds. Julia isn't so whiny this time around, but no less snoopy. She is right in the middle of the fray as death lands at her feet. She's finding herself at odds with several guests at the Earls home, not to mention the Earls son Cecil. [...]

    7. An enjoyable cozy series set in England on an old estate fighting to survive modern times. Julia is in charge of fund raising to keep the village and the Hoggin Hall afloat. When a young visitor is murdered Julia and Michael must solve the crime before she is the next victim to be poisoned. The is a good cozy series that has a good cast of characters set in a village that one would like to visit.

    8. Empty Nest by Marty Wingate is the second book in A Birds of a Feather Mystery series. I did not read the first one so it took me a while to figure out who was who and how Julia Lanchester, the main character and narrator of the story ended up at this estate. She thirty-seven years old and divorced. She changed careers recently from being her father’s assistant (he is an ornithologist and hosts a show on BBC) to running a Tourist Information Centre in Smeaton- under-Lyme where she is responsib [...]

    9. ARC honest review for Alibi books via Netgalley.Manager of a tourist center in a quaint British village, Julia Lanchester finds herself with more ideas than time. Her boss is the Earl Fotheringill himself, but apart from him, she doesn’t mix well with the aristocracy. Unfortunately, toxic mold forces her from her cottage and into one of the earl’s countless spare rooms at the Hall. She tries to get a handle on her overload of work, while she finds herself arguing with dinner guests, chaffing [...]

    10. This is the second book in author Marty Wingate's series A Birds of a Feather Mystery. I read all three books in The Potting Shed mystery series before giving up on them and had hoped this would be a better fit for me. It was not. I don't like to read novels where the heroine could easily fix a misunderstanding by simply making one declarative statement and yet she fails to do so.Julia Lancaster is in charge of the Tourist Information Center in the village of Smeaton-under-Lyme in Suffolk. She i [...]

    11. I have become a big fan of Marty Wingate's cozy mysteries--The Potting Shed series and the more recent Birds of a Feather series. Empty Nest is the second book in this bird-centric series featuring Julia Lanchester, tourism director for an estate in (the most adorably named little town) Smeaton under Lyme, in the Suffolk region of England. After toxic mold has been discovered in her cottage, Julia finds herself staying temporarily in the main house of the estate enjoying the care and camaraderie [...]

    12. This is my first Marty Wingate book and it will most certainly not be my last. I plan to go back and read the first book in this amazing series. While reading you are transported to a British estate called Fotheringill. I love how the author is able to catch the essence of the British landscape and countryside. She goes into great detail while describing the village and surrounding estates. She also captures the beauty and majesty of the different birds noted throughout this book. Especially the [...]

    13. Empty Nest is the second book in Marty Wingate's Birds of a Feather mystery series. About six months has lapsed since the first installment, The Rhyme of the Magpie. Julia Lanchester, manager of the TIC (tourist information center) has been displaced from the cozy cottage she has been furnished as part of her position in Smeaton-under-Lyme. Toxic mold has been found in the walls and Julia finds herself in a lovely suite at the manor house, Hoggin Hall, while the work is done to restore the cotta [...]

    14. Marty Wingate, well done you!Being that I had trouble getting through to and liking Julia Lanchester and her boyfriend Michael, still wish he was the murderer, in the first book Rhyme of the Magpie I was a little leary of her character in this book. The writer has made Julia a much more likable character who has more depth and is embracing her new life. I actually like her as much as the other characters.In this book Ms. Wingate has Julia living at the hall when her own little cottage is found t [...]

    15. 4 starsThis was an interesting concept for a cozy mystery. I don’t think I had seen other series where they were really interested in birds and had so much knowledge about them. That sets this mystery apart from others. Marty Wingate is famous for her Potting Shed Mystery series and now she is venturing into the area off birds and all things fowl (fowl as in mysterious and alluring).This is book two in a series and I just picked up book one on my Kindle. It is called The Rhyme of the Magpie.Ju [...]

    16. Marty Wingate has a writing style that draws you right into her story. She also has a winning main character in Julia. She's smart, she's funny, and when she's not in a romantic kerfluffle with Michael, she's so full of ideas for promoting her area as a prime tourist destination that I'm fascinated with her work. There's also touches of humor sprinkled throughout that certainly keeps readers laughing. I particularly enjoyed the running joke that has Julia trying to guess what her sister is going [...]

    17. This is the first book I've read by this author and it was a very pleasant surprise. Julia Lanchester is a witty and funny character, I found myself chuckling along at some of her antics. When toxic mold forces Julia out of her charming little home, she finds herself living in one of Earl Fotheringill's spacious rooms in Hoggin Hall. Julia becomes quite comfortable living in the Hall, however, she can't be sure of the Earl's feelings towards her, and she doesn't see him as a love interest, after [...]

    18. I have become a fan of author Marty Wingate and enjoy both this series and her Potting Shed mysteries. This book is part of the “Birds of a Feather” series, which has become my favorite of the two series mainly because I love the main character, Julia. She’s smart and fun and loves her job, even though it often gets her into some dangerous situations. The romance between Julia and her father’s assistant also makes this book and the series great. Julia and Michael have affection, respect, [...]

    19. Pre-ordered, was delivered to my Kindle 12/1/15. Another wonderful mystery by Marty Wingate. I enjoy both her series: Potting Shed and Empty Nest. This is the 2nd in the Empty Nest series featuring Julia Lancaster. She is in charge of a new Tourist Information Center in the small town Smealing-on-Lyme in the Cotswolds near Bury-Saint-Edmunds (the place names in England are wonderful!). I love the TICs, always so helpful in finding another B&B or a great restaurant or just for knowledge about [...]

    20. The second book in the Birds of a Feather Mystery series sees us back among old friends, particularly Julia and Michael, and introduces us to new characters of somewhat dubious motives and morals, thus setting the scene for murder.The novel started slowly and it took me a while to get into the story.Once the murder had taken place the pace of the story picked up and I was thoroughly gripped. There were enough red herrings to keep me guessing as to the perpetrator - there was no shortage of suspe [...]

    21. Julia Lanchester is back and embroiled in murder again. This second book in the series is complex and engaging, with several new characters at the Fotheringill estate, not all of whom survive their stay.I like the way Julia struggles with ethical questions. She doesn't always do the absolute wisest thing, but she never acts like a fool, which I appreciate. She's juggling a romance, a strained friendship, and numerous work and family relationships. She's a well-rounded character who feels like a [...]

    22. Great Book!This is a great book; this is the second book in the A Birds of a Feather Mystery series by Marty Wingate. Julia Lanchester is a manager of a tourist center in a quaint British Village. When toxic mold forces her from her cottage her boss Earl Fotheringill offers her a spare room at the Hall. Julia discovers poisoned sparrowhawks on the estate grounds, and soon after that she finds one of the Hall’s visitors murdered by the same poison. She is determined to find the murderer with th [...]

    23. Our second review is a British cozy mystery, Empty Nest by Marty Wingate. This cozy is part of the Birds of a Feather mystery series; however, I haven’t read the rest of the series and had no problem reading Empty Nest as a stand-alone novel. It has all the hallmarks of a fun cozy mystery, from the quaint village to a lovely manor house, lots of busy-bodies and red herrings, and a reluctant female amateur detective. I found it to be a fun, quick read and a great escape from the stresses of eve [...]

    24. This is the second Julia Lancester murder mystery that I have read and I must say I was not disappointed. Marty Wingate tells the story so well that I felt like a bystander who is silently watching it all unfold before me. If you are a fan of non violent British murder mysteries, which take place in cozy surroundings, this series is a must read. I enjoyed the book from start to finish and completed it in two days.The lead in to the murder and the solving thereof is logical and the characters are [...]

    25. Empty Nest is another delightful cozy from Marty Wingate! Julie and Michael are back and sleuthing when a murder occurs at the Hall. The mystery, while not too hard to solve, is satisfying and the romance is perfect(no instalove here!). The story was slow to build but once in motion, progressed steadily. Fans of the first book, The Rhyme of the Magpie, will enjoy this read—it is less gimmicky than the first but retains its charm and quirks. Several lingering relationship issues are solved and [...]

    26. Empty Nest was the first book I'd read by Marty Wingate and I enjoyed it. Despite the fact Wingate lives in Seattle, the story really feels like it was written by a Brit by the use of certain word patterns and references. Nest gave a more contemporary view of England than most cozies set there which seem old fashioned.I'm not a bird fan and birds and birding are mention several times, but it's not overwhelming to those who aren't into birds.I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.I rec [...]

    27. What a great read from a great author. Julia is temporarily staying in Hoggin Hall, the main house owned by her boss Lord Linus Fotheringill while Pipit Cottage, her small home is being renovated due to mold damage. She is trying to keep a low profile as she is not having any kind of relationship with Linus despite what rumors are going around.Linus son Cecil, claims that he has come home to learn how to take care of and run the estate, but Julia is suspicious of his motives.A fast paced, page t [...]

    28. I enjoyed this second installment in the series even more than the first. Waiting for the third book to be released so that I can read that, too! A+

    29. Originally published at Reading RealityIf you like cozy mysteries in small English towns, you can’t go wrong with either of Marty Wingate’s series. Her Potting Shed series (The Garden Plot, The Red Book of Primrose House: A Potting Shed Mystery and Between a Rock and a Hard Place: A Potting Shed Mystery) all feature an American gardener who has come to England to look for her roots and get a fresh start on her life in new surroundings.Empty Nest and the first book in her Birds of a Feather s [...]

    30. This book will keep you hopping as to who 'dunnit'. Julia's cottage has mold so she has to move into Hoggin Hall while the cottage is repaired. Earl Fotheringill's son Cecil shows up with his friend Freddy Peacock. Cecil announces that he is here to learn to run the estate. Linus (Earl Fotheringill) introduces an estate manager into the mix. Isabel, or Lady Fotheringill, the ex-wife of Linus shows up abruptly. We get to know the characters from the first book a little better, Thorn the butler, M [...]
