Here Where the Sunbeams Are Green by Helen Phillips

Mad and Roo's father is a "Bird Man."  He's very knowledgeable about all bird varieties and is always on the hunt for those that are becoming extinct.  When he's offered a bird-tracking job in Central America, he's ecstatic!  This is a very rare bird that has hardly ever been seen.

Delacorte Press sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on November 13th, so make a note on your TBR list and pick it up then.

Dad has been gone a week or two in the past, but this trip starts to turn into months and Mom and the girls are becoming concerned.  They are finally allowed to come for a visit and that's when the mystery and the action start to pick up.  The forest is thick, humid, and full of dangerous animals, snakes and bugs.  But it's beautiful.  And they know their Dad is out there somewhere.  They've met him, but he didn't want to see them.  Something funny is going on...

This is an interesting mystery that is well written and keeps your attention when reading it.  If you've been to Florida, you will recognize the references to humidity.  It rains every day in this story's setting just like it does in Hawaii.  The setting adds to the story and makes it fun to read.

Here's the Book Trailer so you can have a peek at the story.

If you would like my ARC of this story, please leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info at with your name and address and why you'd like to read the book.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Happy reading.

I love a good mystery and have since I was a kid. This book would definitely be an interesting book to share with my friend Lilly, and bonus I would get to read it and enjoy it too!
