The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea

Cozy Mystery Short Story
I read The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea at the end of last month and am finally reviewing it now. The Preening Peacock is an entertaining, cozy mystery short story approximately 22 pages in length.

I was able to download The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea to my Kindle for FREE from Amazon.

Below is my honest, unbiased review of The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea.

The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea is the first story in the 'Rosalinda Alameda Mystery' series. I like that this cozy series is about zoos and animals and also features a Puerto Rican woman as the leading character.

I like Lisa Shea's writing style and storytelling. The characters and plot were well done in The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea. What a fun short story to read! I look forward to exploring other books in this series in the future.

The following is a plot summary for The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea from Amazon:
Rosalinda Alameda adores zoos. When Massachusetts's summertime "Free Fridays" promotion features the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, Rosalinda grabs her camera and heads east. A full day amongst lions and tigers is about the best outing she can possibly imagine.
But something's wrong at the zoo, and it'll take a combination of her Puerto Rican common sense and her fifty years of wisdom to unravel the puzzle!

The Preening Peacock is the first book in the Rosalinda Alameda Mystery series. These short stories are about 15 pages each and feature the zoos that Rosalinda loves with a passion. Author Lisa Shea goes to each zoo personally to write up its sights, sounds, and aromas. That way you, the reader, can take a virtual vacation to these zoos! Visit Lisa's webpages to see photos and write-ups of the zoos. All of the Rosalinda Alameda Mystery series contain no violence, no swearing, and no intimacy, so they are suitable for teens and up.

You can read the books one-by-one as they are released, or you can wait for the boxed sets to be published once the series gets enough books in it. It's your choice!
A portion of all proceeds benefits battered women's shelters
I am giving The Preening Peacock by Lisa Shea a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
