Pelican Cove is gearing up for a grand Thanksgiving. Local amateur sleuth Jenny King and the Magnolias are busy planning the big dinner, salivating over pumpkin pie and turducken.
When an eccentric old man turns up at the Boardwalk Cafe moaning about his missing turkey, Jenny doesn't have the heart to turn him away. This time, she even has the sheriff's blessing because the police can't be bothered to look for a missing bird.
Meanwhile, Jenny is also roped in to judge the big turkey competition in town. Can she juggle everything and still have time to make her special green bean casserole?
Turkeys and Thanksgiving was my first visit to Pelican Cove, but it was a cute story. Mr. Harrison’s prize turkey is missing and he asks Jenny, our amateur sleuth, to find it after the police don’t take him seriously.
Jenny and her friends, the Magnolias, seem fun and like the type to get into predicaments. I like how the town seems to pull together, like for a Thanksgiving potluck. The mystery itself wasn’t terribly complicated, but this is a novella so I wouldn’t expect it to be.
It was a good holiday read and a nice introduction to the series for me.
